!996 Dodge Ram 1500 Pick-up Dies randomly


Asked by Nov 26, 2011 at 11:52 AM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1996 Dodge ram 1500 pick-up truck that will die at any given time, turning corners, stopping, driving down the road.As of now the truck will start back up only to do it again a block, 1 mile 2,3,4,5 I never know! There has been a few people on here with the same problem but they haven't posted whether or not they fixed it nor the diagnosis. This is a daily driver for my family and I'm concerned it won't start eventually, stranding my family and I. Thanks!

When The Truck Engine Shuts Off, Do You Lose All Power, Radio, Lights< Etc? Or Just The Engine? I Have Come Across This Same Problem Befor If JUST The Engine Shuts Off. Check The Conecterz On The Coil, ECU, And Any Othe Snap Type "Brake Off Clip" Type It Will Not Be The Fuel Injectors,,One Maybe,,But Not Enuff Of Them To Kill The Engine. Tiz A Place To Start Good Luck
