Died on the highway

Asked by May 28, 2014 at 10:50 PM about the 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Rumble Bee

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Was driving down the highway and she died on me. Started running rough and then just
quit. Started her back up but was running really rough and then quit again. Now she just
spits and sputters when I try to start it. Had to have it towed home.

Posibble timing issue ,check your timing chain.Did you hear any noise when she died?

Didn't hear anything unusual. After it died it did start back up again and ran normal for a few seconds then ran really rough again and quit.

May be just fuel pump went bad,if it cranked up and ran fine for a minute,should not be timing.
