I have an 05 Dodge Ram with a 5.7 hemi 145K miles starts hard but only with the gas pedal on the floor when started runs like there is a miss in the engine. NO fault codes I have changed the cam and crank sensor to no avail.

When you say 'hard to start' and 'foot on the floor' in the same sentence I think something....the car is designed to start without throttle. You should start it without touching the gas petal. The computer knows what to do to start it. Ignore this if that is what you do...sorry I just don't know if you do or not.

When the truck was starting correctly I never touch the gas pedal when tbe hard to start issue started its the only way I could get the engjne to start.

all routine maintainence is current. all filters are clean? Have you checked the fuel pump relay? air filter? ect?

Could be an Idle air control valve, a throttle position sensor, MAP sensor (manifold absolute pressure) I'll bet on the IAC.

By the way, an IAC won't give a code

Ok guy. Here is the answer to the question. You have a bad injector or more then one. The injector have a leek and is why your truck won't start unless you press the gas. To find out you have to pull the rail with the 4 injectors. And put key to on position with out start the truck. And put a paper under neat the injectors to see with wet the paper. And it be that one.

Hello, My son has a 2004 Dodge Ram with the small V8. If it set for more than 30 minutes then it will crank for up to 30 seconds before it will start. Like the earlier person suggested, putting the pedal to the firewall helps some. We have changed about everything in the fuel system but the injectors. It does make sense that the pressure is bleeding off. Occasionally black smoke does appear on start up which also sounds like injectors. Many people around have similar problem.

Seem like that is your problem. One or more injectors. Are bad. In order to check that. Pull the rail with the 4 injectors on one side, put the key to on position without starting the truck, all injectors must be dry. If any injector is wet with gasoline That means that injector is bad, and needs to be replace. Do the same presses to check the other side of the injectors. I hope this help.
