Hot Rods 4 Hogs is on a distinguished road
Default 5.7 not idleing

Ok this is my first post i have read the posts on here to try and find out why my 2004 dodge ram 5.7 would not idle. It idled before cam went out had a miss but still idled. Replace plugs, IAS, installed a CAI, still missed, pulled plugs and found number 2 plugs were black,did a compression test and was 0 thought valve spring all were good so pulled head thinking bent valve well didn't see any signs of bent valve. After looking at everything i find a lifter keep broken and lifter had turned and ruined my cam so after hunting two days and finding nothing but stock cams i had comp cams send me a cam. i install a comp. 260 cam, install was as usual was easer then any i have done, then started truck and would not idle,so i figured i had done something with a senser.
Well after 1500.00 worth of sensers and still not idleing, I have been working on this with the cam and missing for a month now , my wife comes over to the garage and tells me why don't you replace the gas cap, told her to leave me alone i'm not happy right now she says every time her engine light comes on she forgets to tighten the cap.so i go up to parts house and talk to the guy again
(he is real happy to see me) and he says man your have replaced everything but the gas cap, pissed me off again i told him give the dang cap put it on started the truck died again started home and by the time i got home truck was ideling,
thought it was a fluke but drove around some more and still doing good so took it on a trip and done fine. Been three days now and still doing fine. (WTH)

PS i'm dish washer now she's the mechanic
