Does it have a plastic intake? If so inspect the intake for cracks. Never seen it happen to a dodge but my Chevy backfired thru the intake and cracked the intake.(intake was plastic) I had to replace it. By the way that's the only Chevy I have seen that happen too.

Only to take it to someone that knows how to diagnose a vehicle without throwing money at it.
