Hello and welcome to just answer Dodge. Do this for me: sit in the truck and close the doors. Then cycle the ignition switch on and off 3 times (on/off/on/off/on) do not try to start it, Then look at the odometer display and see if there is a "P"code displayed. If there is, let me know what it is.

The PO code is PO113.
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 8 years ago

Ok, p0113 is for the intake air temp sensor voltage high. This can occur if the connector to the intake air temp sensor was disconnected, but will not prevent the engine from starting. Hmmm, when you turn the ignition switch to the "on/run" position, can you hear the fuel pump in the tank run for about 2 minutes and then turn off?

The fuel pump is working. Ithink this may be a timing problem? Engine back fires through intake when first turned over. There isn't any noise from the timing cover or valve train. I need a starting point be fore I tare this thing down.
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 8 years ago

Ok, Let's start with the basics and perform a compression test. Let me know what the results are.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
