My 1998 dodge ram 1500 starts acting up about 1/2 mile down the road. Lacking power, back firing, of you feather the gas peddle it will stay running and come out of it and run fine.

Asked by Jul 14, 2017 at 07:49 PM about the 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr ST Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have had the intake manifold pan replaced due to engine burning oil, New
spark plugs, wires, and distributor cap. Truck will not start on first try but
starts right away on second try. It has a 5.9L with 110,000 miles
