Customer Question

I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.7 Hemi. It has been running great. Today, while on the highway, the engine light came on. About 30 sec later, the engine died. Will not start. It shows 8 sensor codes, 1 for each ignition coil. It does not seem feasible that all the coils quit at the same time. I was thinking it could be the PCM or the cam shaft timing sensor, even though there was no code for it. Any suggestions.

Thank you for that information. Not it cranks over but does not start? Does the engine have spark when cranking it over?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't know. It cranks but does not fire.
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

Ok, that is what you are going to need to check next. You are either missing spark or fuel.. or both. YES, it is very unlikley that all of the ignition coils have gone bad at the same time. I agree. USually this is caused by incorrect valve timing or a bad cam or crank sensor.

No spark.
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

OK then I would start checking the camshaft position sensor and crankshaft position sensor.

Remember to check engine compression to be sure the engine is in time
