Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD

1 Answer

Help I have a 2001 dodge ram pick-up 1500 5.2 4x4 sport. The truck wont start once the engine is warm. I thought maybe it was the ign. coil so I replaced it. I am still having the problem. If I try to start the truck after the truck has been sitting off for a few hours it will start, but if i turn it off for just a few minutes (like running into the store for a min.) it won't start. Does anyone have any ideas?

It may be a bad starter or the starter solenoid. If by not starting you mean it will not turn engine, but if the engine is turning then the starter is turning so it is something else all together.
Starters will usually work when they are cold then once warm or hot they will not work.
Hope this helps!

How hard is it to install pickup coil in the distributor of a 2001 dodge ram 1500 pickup.


The pick-up coil/stator is easily replaced in a dodge distributor, and once you have removed the distributor cap and the ignition rotor, then just dis-connect the wire connector from the pick-up coil/stator and lift it straight up and out of the distributor, and the distributor does not have to be removed or dis-assembled to replace the pick-up coil/stator. There are two alignment tabs on the pick-up coil/stator that will match up with the distributor cap when the pick-up coil/stator is properly installed. Here are two images to help assist you.
