Default 2008 ram 4.7 just shut off

Hello all,

i have a 2008 ram with a 4.7. Today while getting on the high way the truck just shut off. i was able to coast the truck to the side of the road. Right before it shut off i heard a pop sound and the motor went dead. tried to restart, did not restart till i turned the key all the way off and let it sit for a min. Got off at the next exit and went to auto zone to see if there was any codes in it. Nothing showed up. Is there anyone that might point me in the right direction to prevent this from happening again. or if anyone has any idea what might have caused this.

Well has it done it again since you got it running again?
Something like this can't really be prevented Just keep a Eye on Water Temps and Oils and Codes. Check all your Spark plugs for signs of Rich Mixture some times rich mixture can cause backfires in the intake manifold fuel being ignited from the heat. it's not for sure much can be listed for the cause. Has anything Change since it happen like loss of horsepower etc .... ?

Default re info

not sure if this will help. The plugs have about 3000 miles on them they are bosh plugs the same that was in it when i changed them. the Truck has 48000 miles on it. aas far as i can tell it does seem to be a little bit slugish when you get on the throttle. I only changed the intake side of the plugs when i changed them. Do you think it would help to do the other 8 plugs ? This is the 4.7 flex fuel motor. if that helps. The fuel doesnt seem to be that rich still getting about 15mpg the when i got the truck back in Feb. I know its a long shot to find out what caused this to do this till it finally really starts to act up. it has only did it 2 times and was just trying to keep it running right.

Thanks For any help

Andy

Three things to check:

1. Replace the other 8 plugs.

2. Clean your throttle body.

3. Clean or replace your EGR valve.
