So the truck is running, apparently they changed all the spark plugs and she fired right up. They said they didnt find what caused the problem and that the plugs were so wet that it would have never started.... as for the ground issue, that was something to do with my rear tail light being burnt out....

And voila, she is back, cool, next time your truck does not start check if one of your tail lights is burnt, lmao. There is a procedure to starting a flooded engine, you put your foot to the floor on the gas, and turn the key, let go of the gas, the truck will continue to turn over to empty the cylinders of fuel for I think 5 or 10 seconds then try to start, repeat if necessary. Anyways, cool, you now have new plugs.

Glad it has worked out but I guess this si something that you will be watching very closely. How come a tail light was burnt out so quick that might be another question?!? Truck isn't that old is it?

Happy to hear shes running good but they didn't really answer what was wrong. It seems you were getting fuel but no spark. WHY? why wasn't the ignition system doing it's job to fire up that hemi? If it were just new plugs because the old were wet why not just dry them out. Clearly once your in there & 16 of those spark spitters are out ya might as well replace'em but I can't contemplate what caused them not to spark in the first place. I remember your original post you said you let it sit like all day in the street. That should've been long enough to dry them out. So now I question your air flow. Did they mention anything about your intake like your tb needing to be reset? If that sucker was closed up all the way ya may have created the perfect storm for soaked plugs & even though the plugs may have been fine they would've never fired off even when arcing. Huh why no go w/ a new truck. It ran rough threw codes for misfiring then soaked itself w/ fuel. Something isn't right here. It could've been just crappy plugs but why all the sudden & why multiple failures? Hey how many miles are on ol'cliff? & when did you throw the tuner in & on what tune was she running on? Just curious. Rest assure friend the dealer as friendly as they seem made note of all things modded on that truck & will at all costs attempt to back out on repair warranty issues trust me.

The worst thing about those pics is the ford towing the Dodge.
