Could be a fuel injector drizzling fuel instead of spraying a finely atomized mist.A fine mist will burn thoroughly,while a drizzle of fuel will not,and whatever fuel is left will go on down past the rings to a certain extent.Also have the vehicle scanned for diagnostic trouble codes,and address any codes.Change the oil and filter before any damage is done.

I need to download either a service manual or a complete wiring diagram for a 1997 dodge ram 1500 5.9L V8?


Fuel pump. I just pulled apart the dead fuel pump from my Astro today. Looking at the motor, it would have to land on one position only in order for it to have restarted as the brushes contacts on 3 of the 8 windings had worn down. Likely you could get the engine to fire if you used starting fluid, but it wouldn't stay running.

What would make 2005 dodge ram 1500 hemi 5.7L v8 . its bogging down when driving .i changed the cam sensor and it still does it


Could be a long list of things, including low fuel pressure, throttle position sensor, EGR valve, dirty air filter, and so on.
Is the check engine light on ?
Does it feel like it is lacking fuel, or air ? Is it not downshifting when it should ?

Hello crey60
Try checking the fuel injector on the #3 clyinder for dirt or damage. A faulty injector will cause a missfire code and trip the check engine light. Hope this is helpful.

Gas mixed in with engine oil


sounds like you have an injector that is staying open all the time,and dumping fuel all the time and not only when its time.It is most likely the one where the plug keeps fouling.The engine light is probally showing a misfire on that cylinder also,please take it to a qualified tech to have scanned and checked

Your Dodge sounds as if it actually has several separate problems going on,first,with the check engine light,have it scanned for diagnostic trouble codes,and have the technician write down the code number and definition (description).This could lead down a diagnostic path that might explain some of the things going on with the truck.The oil gauge,take it back to the oil change place,and INSIST that you think they installed a defective oil filter.I had a defective oil filter cause my oil gauge to go whacky too.Hopefully the codes will lead to some clear problem,when you get the code numbers and definitions,come on back and we'll try and work through them with you.Another option is buying an OBD2 code reader.They can be bought for around $60,and you won't have to go a mechanic or AutoZone to get codes out of your vehicles.Good luck.Thanks for using Fixya.com
