#4 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500
I lease a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 with the 5. 7l hemi. My vehicle has roughly 17,800 miles on it. I am having stalling problems with it. In early November I went outside to turn my truck on to warm it up. I moved it forward about 5 feet and put it in park. When I did this, the engine shut off on it's own. I took me about three minutes to restart the vehicle. Once it restarted, it ran fine and showed no other symptoms of a problem. On December 3, 2006, I was driving home and exiting from the freeway. When I reached the red light, I stopped and the truck stalled out. I restarted it and it ran for about five seconds and stalled again. I put the car into neutral and started it and kept my foot on the gas to keep it running. At the next light it died again and continued to do it everytime I stopped. I took it into the dealership on December 5, 2006. They looked at it and said that they could not find anything wrong with it. The computer did not show any codes and they could not duplicate the problem. It only happens periodically and it did run okay as I drove it to the dealership. On December 6, 2006 I was driving the vehicle and it stalled again at a stop. I am scheduled to take it into the dealership again on December 12 to have them "flash the pcm". The dealer has informed me that their special tech has seen this problem on a few other vehicles and does not quite know how to fix the problem. I have done some research and found that the NHTSA is conducting an investigation for this problem in Dodge rams and Dodge durangos. I have two small children and do not feel safe to drive them in this vehicle. My wife and I make conscious decisions regarding our childrens safety. Placing them into a vehicle that stalls at will is not Smart. If you have any guidance or information that would assist in this matter, it would be greatly appreciated. It was December 3, 2006 when this engine shut off without warning issue occurred.
#5 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500
The vehicle involved was a 2005 Dodge ram1500 quadcab lwb. There was crash involved with this problem. 2005 Dodge ram frequently stalls at slower speeds and rpm's. The engine shuts off without warning often after letting off the gas pedal at lower rpms. It has happened at speeds of 20 mph and lower, while taking turns, approaching stop signs and at the crest of hills when I let off the gas. Very dangerous and resulted in running off the road into a ditch in one case. The dealer was not helpful on both occasions when they kept the truck for repair purposes. In both cases they said they could not do anything since the computer did not register a specific failure. I told them that it was related to the low rpm's and that it was not a "sensor" issue. They refused to investigate further as they felt this would be chasing the problem "blind". This engine shut off without warning issue occurred Mon., Apr. 7, 2008.
