05 dodge ram 1500 5.7l eng wont start.I got it to start

Customer Question
05 dodge ram 1500...

05 dodge ram 1500 5.7l eng wont start.I got it to start today after removing the throttle body and giving it a thorough cleaning. Started right up after this. Tonight I went out and it won't start again. Second time in two weeks.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Have some corrosion on the positive. Gave a good cleaning today when it started. Ground was dirty. Also cleaned.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've been watching youtube videos and decided to start with the IAC valve but could not find it. I ended cleaning the throttle body.It was pretty dirty. I believe the gaps that exist when throttle plate is closed were closed pretty well due to carbon buildup. Thought I had it fixed when it started after this cleaning.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

My fuel pump is less than 1 year old. I can hear the pump kick on when I turn the key.

Will it start at partial or full throttle?

What Customers are Saying:

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.
