What's up? I'm new too I need a better description but I would start pulling the air box and checking the throttle body and wires going to it. My 04 1500 hemi the wires were rubbing the air box and it looked like a rat chewed through them Causing it to short out and run like crap luckily my ETC light came on but that's not always the case. Plus my throttle body was filthy so clean that as often as you can. If you can't find it this way try researching the problem on and check models with the hemi between 03-05. Let me know how it goes. If no luck give me a better idea of what exactly is going on and when.
