Angry 2003 Engine Missing

While sitting at a light last night my 2003 dodge ram 1500 with the hemi engine starting missing, the rpm dropped down. It never cut off. Light turned green and I move on. The truck was missing badly. Nursed it home and turned it off for the night. In the AM I check all wires. Nothing found. Started the engine, still missing. Stepped on the gas the rpm only came up tp 4500, would not go any higher.

Hi and welcome to the site, jump over to the Newbie Checkin and say hi while you wait on answers. I don't have an answer, have you checked the catalytic converter? How many miles on the truck? Guess it's time to .................... this back to the top!

Over 120,000 miles. I replaced the plugs and wires. Still misses.

What did the plugs you pulled out look like? Any fouled, black, white? Might help to narrow down which cylinder. You can also start by pulling one plug wire at a time and start the truck. Once you isolate it, check that one for spark. One of the techs will have to weigh in from here. Hope this helps, and good luck.
