Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD

2 Answers

Truck won't start...

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram truck 1500 5.2 4x4 that won't start once the engine is warm. I thought it was the ignition coil so i replaced it, but i am still having the same problem. If i try starting the truck after its been sitting there 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. Any ideas?

    No, i haven't load tested the battery but the battery is fairly new. And the engine does turn when i'm trying to start it.

    Sounds basic but have you load tested the battery?

Next step assuming you are actually getting spark to the plugs is fuel pressure. ( ie. fuel regulator/ or fuel pump)

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!

Someone will need to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel pressure issue to proceed.
Could be a long list of things including relays and electrical components.

Problem with starting my 2003 dodge ram


My father has the same problem with his 2001 Chrysler Sebring, the key will go into the ignition switch but wont turn. Called the dealer and seems the tumblers inside the ignition have gotten stuck, the solution... put the key in the ignition and tap it gently with a hammer (plastic tip if you have it) and it worked fine. Not sure what the guys at Autozone are pull but on a Ram 5.7 Hemi there are individual coils, not one, I should know I also have a 2003 Ram 1500 and have changed the plugs (not fun)... I have a code scanner (Hypertec) and when I've gotten a check engine light I check it with the scanner. Turned out mine had a problem with the air sensor in the intake. $15 part fixed the problems. Good Luck.
