SOURCE: 2001 dodge ram shuts off intermittently, restart ok no mil.

You are experiencing what is called a CCD Bus short in the instrument cluster circuit board. (chrysler calls it the "chrysler collision detection buss) it is how all of the controllers and modules communicate on that vehicle. Get a new one and you should have no problems, and used ones are a HUGE gamble. Other vehicles that are extremely bad for this are, caravans, neons, sebring coupe/conv, strates, and cirrus. It will also cause a no start condition that is EXTREMELY hard to catch.

SOURCE: Restarting problem

most likely problem is the crank sensor. they are bad about not wanting to work after they get hot, which explains why it works after a cool down. they usually won't set codes in that situation. but if you have a check engine light you should get it scanned first. auto zone will do it for free.

1997 dodge 1500 starts fine when cold, won't restart when warm.

No, the coil the is not the problem. I would take the ignition module and have it tested. Even though it may not test bad b/c it is still cold, it is more than likely the problem. Have you checked to see if you are getting spark when the trouble occurs?

I have the same problem on my 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 5.7 Hemi. Also the gauge is sometimesslow to register after filling. Maybe 5 minutes.My neighbor has the same poblem with his 1999 Durango? I think this is a job for a recall.

Wont start.

The cam or crank position sensors are notorious for failing, after they age and get heat in them the signal is no longer generated. Also make sure fuel lift pump is working properly, check all of the fuel filters and for fuel leaks of any kind including sucking air on the suction side of the lift pump. Good Luck!!

I think you're describing a classic case of "hesitation." Basically, the engine hesitates when you step on the gas. I would start by checking the timing with the engine at operating temperature to be sure it's within spec.
