Is your check engine light on? If so what are the codes?

25

No . I even have a friend that has a scanner & still can't get any info

Was you driving it and it just went dead or did you go to start it and it started doing this?

25

I drove it about 6 miles to Home Depot . When I can out this is how it was

Possibly egr valve stuck open. If it sticks open it can cause this sort of issue.

25

The scanner said it was good . But where is it located ? Thank you for your

From what I have found if yours has one it should be on the passenger side of the intake near firewall. I am finding mixed results tho. Some do have them and some don't. Dodge did some changes around that year model.

I'm not sure what you sayn . Can you send me a picture of it please

It should be right behind your last fuel injector on the passenger side of the intake. Right next to the firewall.

118,045

This one might be better. It's right at the point of the pin.

25

Ok Thank you I'll try it today .

Also check for any loose vacuum lines or electrical connections. That might have got bumped loose while you were working on it.
