1996 dodge ram truck does not run

Asked by Feb 04, 2016 at 03:42 AM about the 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr Laramie SLT 4WD Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 96 ram 5.9 does not run ive changed the crankshaft
sensor camshaft sensor (otherwise known as a pick up
sensor or whatever thats not what i know it as) distributor
cap intake manifold gaskets changed the oil oil filter checked
and repaired the fuel line (it is not gas) pressure is just fine
(however could it be the injectors?)       
changed the ignition coil  and added good gas as well as
treatment (intake manifold gaskets were replaced because of
water in the oil) (not the head gasket it is fixed) throttle body
does let gas just leak in when i pour gas into it and it does
not start with starting fluid either as i probably should have
mentioned already ( it only cranks ) its not the battery either  
its a commercial truck battery being used which started the
truck just fine 3 times first time within very few seconds as
well as the other two tries but the fourth time after a few
hours after it started up i  cranked it it roughishly started
and then made a whooshing sound after that it hasnt started
up it has gas and started up fine other than the fact that the
rpm gauge had a hard time leveling out to 1 going past
multiple times but not under 1 on the rpm gauge  
I will admit i got the truck from a dumbass in high school
who actually cut the center out of a mediumly expensive
while still custom rim just because he couldnt get one lugnut
off so i can see problems occuring with it like vacum lines
which were either not hooked up right or at all even which i
fixed the right and the left lines ive heard about a method as
well rhat you keep your foot fully on the gas while you try to
crank it for 20-30 seconds but it doesnt work  so after
reading this and you have any ideas of what it could be
please let me know ive done everything i can to get my baby
back on the road but ive had no luck so please if you have
any idea please help me out

1 Answer

However ive swapped the whole fuel rail which includes the injectors as well i do not know if the problem could be that or not but like i said it started up and ran jusy fine 3 times without any problems for around 5 minute time periods sp please what could it be (and please anyone that is lookibg for answers as well please just watch for answers instead of posting that you have the same problem i dont get online much and a endless amount of i have the same problem will cause me to not know the answer becaue of the number of comments and im sure something relative to this has been posted before however with me not creating another help question about whats wrong without specifically saying whats wrong would waste you guys time and thats the last thing i want to do but any help would be appreciated just focus on what i did to the truck and what it could be and i can say thank you in no time
