I have a 2001 ram 1500 5.2 with running and starting problems

Asked by Feb 13, 2014 at 09:29 AM about the 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr SLT 4WD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When driving down the road the truck will shut off and start up like a hesitation. Before this it was quiting totaly sometimes it would start back up or I would have to let it sit . I put in a lot of new parts cap,roter,wires,plugs,coil,fuelpump,block crank sensor,and ecm. The ecm seemed to fix it but know it has this hesitation. Three times I have went to start it and when I turn the key on it sounds like an electric fuel pump under the hood . The relays in the fuse panel under the hood are all cliking I have moved the wireing harness around and looked at connections. Right know I am going out to put in a new pickup plate in the distribute.

I think I found the problem with this truck. After changing and trying more parts from a freinds truck I still had the problem. The only thing I did not try was the ecm because it was a new reman. So just for heck of it I tryed it and it seem to stop. I exchanged the reman and it has been fine for almost a week and about 200 miles cross my fingers.
