Customer Question

I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 that is losing power... It does'n't die just when you press the gas pedal nothing happens. Mechanic replaced the throttle body control and accelerator pedal assembly and it's still doing the same thing.
JA: Have you checked the spark plugs? When was your air filter last changed?
Customer: Haven't checked the plugs but air filter was changed at last oil change. It runs fine when sitting, cranks every time but will only go about a mile before stopping.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: We are doing it ourselves.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: This happened a few weeks ago but not as often....could go a day or so before it would happen again. Now it is repetitive after only a few miles.
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.

Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

Do you have a HEMI engine and if so was the accelerator pedal relearned when it was replaced? What codes are active?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We remived the negative battery terminal. The only code now is a Cam V I believe it what it said.

Was the ETC relearned with a scantool after the ETC and APP was replaced? What is the actual P codes that are active?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My husband has a friend doing the work and he is saying there are no active P codes and that yes everything was reset.

The ETC will need to be relearned with a scantool and yes there should be P codes that I need to help get it fixed..

Knock sensor!!
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

You have a code for the knock sensor? What P codes are setting?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Well the knock sensor wasn't it. It worked about 30 minutes and then back to square one. P codes are now...P0344 and P0405
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

The P0344 is for the camshaft sensor and the P0405 is for the EGR valve.. Have they been replaced?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We have replaced the cam shaft sensor already but not the EGR valve. Could it be the wiring?
