Having problems with your 2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 ?

Engine is had starting, idles extremely rough, no accel. at all.

\015 2000 dodge 2500 2wd, 5.9L 24V TDL, auto tran. Truck was running when I killed it and changed fuel filter. It would not start. Lift pump was bad. Towed to diesel mech. Mechanic installed new l/pump, bled air, etc. He said the only way he could keep the truck running (rough with no acceleration) was with a charger(boost) on the left battery. They don't work on electrical problems. He felt the inj. pump was okay. Towed to dodge dealer. Dodge dlr said the injector pump was bad ?? ''STOP'' Towed to back yard beforeI have 5 or 6 thousand dollars wrapped up in a 9 thousand dollar truck. This lift pump installation has blown up in myface and I need to take a breath. Do I really have an electrical problem? Can a bad PCM, etc. make it appear the pump is bad on diagnostics? I ran a scan myself twice. The first time = P0251,P0252,P1688. Erased codes, pulled neg. cables for 30 min. Started engine. It ran about 20 seconds. The second scan = P1688 only. Should I pull the PCM first and have it checked ? Is it possible that the inj. pump and an electrical problem exists simply from changing the lift pump?I'm hoping someone out there has had a similar problem andwould throw me bone.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

I have a 1992 Nissan pickup with a 2.4 engine. When it starts, it usually idles very high and then sometimes it idles extremely rough. The latter sometimes happens when I hit a bump or start down my steep and rough driveway. Occasionally it runs like a new truck. It always runs good on the road but when I let off the throttle as if to turn or stop, it usually bucks and jerks until I take it out of gear. I've tried 93 octane, fuel injector cleaner, water remover, replaced the fuel filter and re-a

Car started and idle, when I would press on gas pedel the engine would stall. Let up on gas and engine would idle, but it sounded like it was running on 3 or 4 cylinders. Pressed on gas again engine would stall again and let up on gas the engine would idle roughly, when I let it idle the engine reduced in RPMs and then stopped. It would not start again. So I left the car for about hour, tried to start it and it started right up. It had a rough idle pressed on the gas the engine stalled I let up

I have an Audi 80 1.8 petrol 1989. The car starts from cold with no trouble settling to a normal idle speed. However as you drive for a mile or so and come to slow down the engine dies to a extremely rough and lumpy running - barely above a stall. Pressing the accelorator produces no revs and the engine ''hunts'' firing only on a one or two cylinders. Eventually the car will start again and as long as the revs are kept high it will drive again, although when the revs go lower the engine dies aga

My 2003 PT cruiser's engine light came on, then the car started running extremely rough. It became so bad, I had to pull over. Sitting idle, it seems to idle a little rough, but when I gas it gas, it would rev up the die down, then rev up and die down - sorta pulsating. I just checked the code for my 2003 PT cruiser by using the run-off-run-off-run method and it came back with a code p 0340. The code chart indicates a misfire in cylinder 4. Does that mean I need to change the spark pulgs? What's

Well...my ball park guess on this is just a tune up. The engine light is usually showing a misfire. If the plugs are bad then the cylinder is not igniting the fuel and it is flooding out. With what is here this makes sense to me. Let me know what i ... Cars & Trucks

Engine cuts out immediately after starting,wont even at least rough idle before engine cuts out. Sometimes you have to go through hard starting before the engine starts then cuts out. It doesnt happen when the engine is cold only happens when the engine is hot when re starting. What I do is wait for the engine to cool a bit after that no problem starting. The car does not experience rough idling but I am afraid one day the engine might just die while sitting in traffic. Some say it could be the

I have a 4 liter V6 2003 Ford Explorer ( 2 door). The check engine came on and then it started idling rough. When it idles rough the AC blows hot.

The problem has been consistent until tonight when I had no problems but check engine light still on (rough idle has only been during the heat of the day so far).

Rough Idle I have a 96 Dodge Intrepid that had been sitting in a garage for two years. I got the vehicle started and drove it to a repair shop where I had the fluids, plugs, gas and oil filters changed. After all of this the vehicle started to run rough at idle after having a warm engine. At running speeds the engine runs smooth with no problems it?s just at a standstill when the vehicle starts to run rough. I have also noticed that the gas mileage is lower that I remember. Any suggestions? Than

... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

When I start the engine cold, at first it revs up and then dies. I have to try to start the engine several times until it finally runs very roughly for a few minutes. If I depress the accelerator peddle when the engine is running roughly, that always makes the engine die, and if it doesn't die, the engine rev's up momentarily when the peddle is released. After a few minutes of very rough idling, the engine runs fine. My mechanic chenged the flow meter, and that didn't make any difference.
