Asked by Oct 03, 2016 at 03:03 PM about the 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr Laramie SLT Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our truck was messed up from the flood in
August... It will start and idle a little while then stall
out. We've replaced the transmission & every
censor on the engine. Battery is new also. We've
replaced the computer and checked for leaks and
nothing... Only way to keep it working is to cause a
leak... We have no money to send it to a shop since
we've put everything into it and flood has us
starting over... Please help!!

My husband has done what he could since his dad was a mechanic & taught him everything he does know... But he's stuck right now since he's tried everything he could possibly think of... Thank you :(
