I've a 2006 Ram 1500 4.7 18,000 miles. I dodn't drive it much! Anyway never any problem with the truck until today. Started the truck, less than 30 seconds I put it in reverse and it just died. Like I turned the ignition off. Put it back in park and tried to restart. Engine turned over for a good 10 seconds without starting. I tried again for another 10 seconds or so, no joy. I then turned the ignition to off and waited about 30 seconds or so, then tried again. Engine started after a longer that normal turn
of the starter. I let the engine warm for a few minutes then shut it off and restarted it which was a semi-normal start meaning it still took longer than it should have been by a couple of seconds. Any ideas? Your thoughts appreciated in advance.

Thats odd isn't it. You never took it to the dealer or anything? Just never happened again? I am glad to know that mine isn't the only one though.:lol4:

For some odd reason dodge canceled our warranty. It was supposed to have 7 yr 72,000 miles. It only had 15000 on it when it did it. I wasnt gonna pay a dealer to tell me that they couldnt find anything wrong like normal.

I have lost a lot of faith in Chrysler from that and a 6.7 we had.
