not saying its your problem but id start by returning the truck to the stock program and go for a ride....got to start somewhere......im sure ram tech will chime in too.....by the way...i didnt realize hemi's were notorious for any problems......BMW is the king of recalls though.....lol

I'm with Sprintertech on this one. A bad coil should set a misfire or coil ionization code. Coil failure isn't common unless platinum plugs are used. I'm not saying it can't be a coil but at this point it seems unlikely. How many miles are on the plugs in it now? A problem with fuel pressure or volume could also be a problem as could the crank position sensor and neither would necessarily set a code. Give the stock tune a try and see what happens.

Ihad a similar problem about a month ago with my 07'not wanting to move without heavy throttle with no codes being thrown. Took it to the dealer and they installed a new shift seleniod and havent had the problem since. Not saying this is your problem but might be a possibility.

so far what i did was reboot the computer back to stock,via the predator,disconnected the computer and started the truck.When i start of and give the truck the gas she goes nowhere i have to throttle it up like your riding the clutch and she starts to go once moving it seems ok

Well, it's definitely not the Predator tune causing the problems.

No codes showing either? Then, given the symptoms you are describing, I'd be concerned about a mechanical failure somewhere in the transmission.
