Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD
My truck hesitates when the engine is cold. Almost like a misfire on acceleration and only up to about 2000 rpm. Once it warms up it's fine. I changed the cap&rotor, wires, plugs (gapped to spec.), air filter and cleaned the throttle body. It runs better warm, but didn't make any difference when cold.
I was told it could be the manifold temperature sensor or coolant temp. sensor but engine temp. seems fine on the gauges.
Some of these have two temp sensors, one for the gauge, and one for the computer.
