My 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie 5.9L will cut out during acceleration and sometimes die. No check engine light comes on. What can be the problem?

Asked by Jun 19, 2013 at 09:43 PM about the 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr Laramie SLT 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Replaced the fuel pump about 6 months ago.  Haven't had any problems in that regard
since.  I thought I would get an engine light if it was as O2 sensor.

Could be a throttle position sensor. That won't give you a code. Could be a crank sensor as well. That too may not give you a code. Since it's on acceleration I would look at the throttle position sensor first.
