problem need help
i have a 1998 dodge ram 1500 5.9l. i have replaced the distrubetor rotor button plugs, wires, crank sensor, fuel pump plenum pan plenum gasket ignition coil and hav ehad it hooked up to a computer and it showed no problems. the problem is sometimes while i am driving i loose power for a quick second. kinda like it has a really bad missfire. also i have heard a pop everynow and again coming from the back of the motor. no codes have been on. maby the flex plate? im no to sure ive checked everything and im getting tired of putting money into parts that wont fix it. any ideas

Usually a faulty injector will show a misfire code, but not always.

no codes have been shown yet

Anyone thinking failing crank sensor? I've not changed one on a Dodge, only Buick, but thats what it did...Does it have the same symptoms after changing it out the 1st time?

2ndgenram1500 05-10-2013 09:49 PM

yes it did. and it might be that. ive heard aftermarket sensors for dodges arent that good and to stay with all mopar. but like i said somtimes it runs great and other times its horrible. more better than good tho.
