Hi Pearl. I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500
, 5.7 Hemi. The problem I am having is the truck runs fine until I accelerate hard. Then it has no power, bogs and bucks. Check engine light comes on and blinks. Changed plugs, oil, and filters. Still happening.
JA: Does the light stay on solid or does it flicker? Any noticeable performance problems lately?
Customer: It blinks, then holds, blinks and holds
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Everything I shared above. Changed plugs, filters etc. Helped before, but not this this time.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Had new fuel pump put on last year. This did not start until I purchased gas a few weeks ago.
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.
