I have a 2001 Dodge Ram Van, 5.2, the original computer failed a while back, the van would just die. I replaced the original with a reman and it worked for a week. They replaced it and it has been fine for many months. Now this morning I noticed the check engine light come on, then it went off. But the last 2 mornings I get to work, driving for about 25 minutes, shut it off, then 10 minutes later go out to start it and it won't start, when it gets cooler with the hood up, then it starts and runs fine. Is it a good guess it is the PCM again failing?? Thank You
JA: Does the engine turn over? How old is the battery
Customer: Yes, cranks like normal and the battery is 3 years old.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, I do most all of my own work. I have not tried anything yet but from the symptoms I am wondering if it is that PCM again
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: I have looked at all of the connections and everything looks good. I have a 137,000 on the Van and has been a good vehicle except for this issue
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dodge Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
