Having problems with your 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck ?

I have 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 4X4 gas engine and it stalls while driving. I have already replaced the fuel pump, spark plugs, wires, rotor, and cap. What else could this problem be?

The problem I had with my '89 Dakota was it would suddenly stop running while driving. After from 10 minutes to an hour I could start it up and drive on. It started happening more and more often. I was in a rush to get the truck running so I replaced both the computer and the timing module in the distributor to fix the problem. However, I suspect the real problem was the timing module was failing causing the engine timing to go out of spec and computer sensed it and shut down the ignition to safeguard the engine.

Good Luck, Bob
I had a similar problem with my 2001 Durango and I ended up replacing the throttle position sensor (TPS). It is located on the end of the throttle shaft on the  throttle body

If you want to test it, rather than replacing it (I think I paid $25.00 for the part?) Check the voltage supply and ground circuits coming from the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). 

Disconnect the electrical connector from the throttle position sensor. Connect the leads of your volt meter to the two outer terminals of the TPS . Turn on the ignition and it should read about 5.0 volts, if not, test the wiring from leading the the TPS. If not, take it in to a good parts store and they will test it for you (that's what I did.)

I picked up  Haynes Repair Manual to help me out. I'm no genius, but the manual, a scanner and  FixYa's been a lifesaver to me.  I hope this works out for you.
