Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 2500

1 Answer

My truck runs fine then it will quit. I may have to sit for 2 minutes of up to an hour, then it will start and run fine, maybe a week or two then it happens again. I've replaced the fuel pump, coil, and had it in the dodge dealership, no one can tell me what to do. I have heard it could be the distributor pickup sensor inside the distributor, but I just don't want to keep buying parts and not fixing the problem. Can you help?

    I have a 1997 Dodge Stratus that just started having a similar problem (runs fine, once in a great while stalls, restarts in a short while and runs fine again). The original post was from July '08. Have you found a solution yet?

Did you replace the fuel filter? Sometimes the fuel filter will have particles in it which when under pressure will sit against the filter media and slow down or stop the flow of fuel. when this occurs your fuel pressure drops and is inadequate to run the injection system. when the key is turned off, the fuel pump stops and the fuel pressure is reduced allowing the particles to settle to another position in the filter. Once the particles have settled the fuel will flow until the particles are agitated, either by fuel flow or driving vibrations causing them to plug the filter again and starving the injection system of fuel. I'm just guessing, but this may be your problem. I had a similar problem in a suburban. Come to find out the fuel in my area has higher than normal particulate, or is dirty. The dealer recommendation was to change fuel filter every 5000 miles. hope this helps

1996 toyota camry 4 cylinder. Stalls out every week or 2 but runs good in between. Nothing particularly showing on diagnostics


Can you duplicate the problem at home ? You would need to figure out if it is lack of fuel or spark to proceed with testing.

Engine stalls on highway starts after 15 min


Sounds like the same problem I have been having with my 2002 Sedona for
the past 6 or 8 months. It would run OK for several days, weeks, or months,
then just quit. If I let it set for 10 to 20 minutes, it would restart and run fine
for at least the rest of that day. About 2 weeks ago, I was fortunate that it happened when someone was with me, so I was able to determine that it
was not getting any spark. Since then the problem has gotten worse and
more frequent - it was happening almost every day and would take over
1/2 an hour before it would start again. This morning was the last straw.
I drove for about 4 miles and it quit. Took 1 hour and 10 minutes before it
would restart. Drove another 2 miles and did it again. This time it took
1 hour 35 minutes before restart. After 1 more mile, it quit again. Took 2
hours, this time. Made it another mile and BAM! - did it again.
My bro towed me home. I determined that it is most likely NOT the crankshaft position sensor, because 99% of the time they either work,
or they don't. Very rarely does it cause in intermittant problem. The most
likely suspect is the engine computer. That was always a likely culpret
when I worked on GM cars. Today I installed a $50 junk yard engine control computer. I am crossing my fingers!
I will know on Thursday, as I have a 50 mile trip to make.
I will post again on Thursday, to let you all know.

I had the car compleletly serviced((2years ago) I have not put 100 miles on the odomitor, Oil is steal clean. I dont drive the 98 740IL it sits in the drive way connected to the battery charger. starts...


Oil will collect condensation if left sitting for a few days and even more if sitting for longer periods. Engines are meant to run and not to sit doing nothing. Moister will collect on the upper part of the engine componets easier were oil does not stay. Run to engine for at least 15 minutes per day or until the temp range is at the normal setting. After a week or so the ticking noise maybe gone hopefully. If not a weak lifter is most likely the problem

I recently had about the same problem with my c1500. You have a tach watch tach if needle jumps your problem is electical. Test coil, distributor pick-up coil and ignition control module. This time mine was the pick-up coil which requires distributer removal. Both coils can be tested by an Ohmn meter, the module must be removed and tested by auto parts store. All three can cause this problem. As they get hot they short out when they cool they work fine. If you pull the distributer cap look at the wires for the pick-up coil mine were cracked from age, which caused shorting while driving and then it would die. when cooled it would crank.

Suburban stalls while driving after running for 15-30 minutes. After letting it sit for 5-10 min it runs fine for another 5-10 minutes, then starts doing it all over again.


a bad crank sensor can cause this. shuts off while going down road, and will start about 10 min, later with no problems runs fine until it quits again. hope this helps,
