Truck won't start after warmed up

Asked by Apr 29, 2017 at 06:46 AM about the 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr SLT 4WD Quad Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This started outt of the blue sky about 4 months ago. I
pulled in my driveway and turned truck off. When I
realized I needed to pull up a bit farther I hopped in and
turned the key and it cranked but sounded like the timing
jumped. Waited about an hour for a tow truck and when
they arrived I took a shot and it started. I see this is an
ongoing issue and am hoping someone has run this ghost
down. Thanks for your help. I have change crankshaft
position sensor as it did give that code. Still have the
issue. I keep my spare key on me and if I need to make a
stop I leave truck running and lock it up.

Sorry i got rushed earlier. Cold start first thing in the morning or seems after about an hour or so truck starts fine zero issues. If I make a stop for gas say on the way home from work and shut truck off it's dead in the water. It turns over, engine very high pitched like it's under no load, and every light on dash panel is lit up. Some I've never even seen! After sitting and seemingly the hour of cool off truck starts right up and away I go. ran a scanner and picked up the CPS and had it changed. To no avail, it still does the same pattern. 2001 Ram 1500 quad cab Sport 4x4 Off-road package.155k miles.
