the heater hose on my 2003 ram 1500 broke & sprayed antifreeze out, began to knock then shut off. I have replaced the heater hose but it is still running very rough.

Did the truck engine get really hot? If you ran it without water there would be serious engine damage.

Is the check engine light on? If so get the codes read.

If one or more of the ignition coils got sprayed with the hot coolant it may be fried. Had that happen to me with my '00 Grand Prix. If the check engine light is flashing have the computer scanned to find out which cylinder is misfiring and go from there. HTH. -Jim

JS is right, also check all electrical connections, they are probably still wet with coolant, dry them out.
