Question about Dodge Ram 1500
My truck sputters pops and resists to go i have had one person tell me it is the o2 sensor what do you think??
Try checking the harmoic balancer. it is very common for these to go bad. I personnally replaced many of these with the same problem with the check engine light not coming on for this reason. just see if the weight is comming off the crank

Many dodge models actually have two o2 sensors. I'm not sure if this applies to your model. If so, one is on or just downstream of the exhaust manifold. The other on the outlet pipe of the catalytic converter.
The PCM compares the readings and adjusts the fuel/air mix to keep the catalytic converter operating at max efficiency.
A malfunction in any portion of this sub-system could cause your symptoms. So let's run a test on the o2 sensor(s).
To do this manually, get a pad, a pen, your keys and get in your truck.
(the procedure for entering diagnostics may vary, but this works for the dodges I've worked on)
Question: Of all the possible causes, why did the o2 sensors get picked as the cause? Is there more to the story?
Any way, run the tests, perform the diagnostics and get back with me, we can go from there.
Hope this helps
