My 2008 dodge ram 5.7 starts and stalls out. After starting…

Customer Question
My 2008 dodge ram...

My 2008 dodge ram 5.7 starts and stalls out. After starting it 5 or 6 times it will stay running and run fine. Once I turn it off and the process starts all over again but not all the time.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?

No engine lights and it runs perfect once running

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

Nothing yet I would be guessing

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

No that's it

No

No lights nothing flashing and does not stall out once it is running.
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 8 months ago

Thank you for that information. I will list the most likely possible causes for you.

  • Tune up components (spark plugs/ignition coils)
  • Throttle body assembly (faulty or simply dirty, may just need to be cleaned)
  • Camshaft position sensor
  • Crankshaft position sensor
  • Integrated power distribution module
  • Malfunctioning BUS communication circuit

I am glad I can help! Keep in mind this is a "starting point". Further testing may need to be done to pinpoint or troubleshoot the root cause. My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5-star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

Everything you listed would either not let it run or it would run rough. This is not the case. Once it's running, it's normal operation. Smooth idle and good acceleration.
Try again.

Would you be willing to speak on the phone?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No! There is nothing I can say on the phone different than what I have texted.
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 8 months ago

Ok, I will leave this open for other experts.

Good luck!

Hi, I'm Ron, a different expert.

If spark to the plugs remains good, then:

You need to check the fuel pressure with a gauge first, then possibly a lab scope depending on the gauge results.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly
appreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and I
will still assist you after you have rated me too if another
question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron

Did you have any more questions for me at this time?

Thanks again, Ron

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
If there was a problem with fuel pressure, why does it run fine once it starts? If fuel pressure was low would it not run rough or stall out?
Dodge Mechanic: rpmdiag, Tech and Instructor replied 8 months ago

There can be a flat spot on the fuel pump armature, so once it finally starts, the armature is now spinning at 6k RPM's.

You can see this with a scope.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars now
and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
I don’t get credit for assisting you until you rate me

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.
