Its the EGR Valve! all hemi rams have this problem. $40 from advanced auto parts. 15 minute job

Yes- replace EGR valve!!! Got mine from Napa- easy fix. EGR is right up front. You will need size 10mm and 8mm sockets to get the job done but like the other post it's only 15 minute job

I also have the 2005 dodge ram w/the hemi. it would just shut off as long the truck went to idle. i took it to the dodge dealer and they said there is a fuse in the main computer (that you cant change) that causes the truck to die. it costs a boat if it is not under warranty.

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram Hemi that has an EGR valve problem. My check engine light came on and dies at random...I took to OReilly and they said it came back with three codes that are all related to the EGR Vavle. I tried cleaning the valve and heard it click when I put power to it, but still having the same problem. Are there sensors somewhere else or are they located in the valve? If I just buy a new EGR valve...will that take care of my problem or does it go further than that? Thanks

I have a 2004 Dodge Ram Hemi-it starts up (engine turns over) and then immediately stalls out. I know it has to be a fuel problem of some kind. Has anyone had this happen, and what did the fix end up being?

I have the same problem, i have a 04 dodge hemi 1500 quad cab with about 93k miles and the motor shut off at random and then sometimes wants to accelrate and that lost power. this has been a problem with the last 3 mos.

Thank author of this post/comment"idles roughly, motor stops after running for about 10-15 minutes"

Hello fellow Dodge owners, I have a '03 ram 1500 5.7 hemi quadcab, about two weeks ago while on the interstate she had no power when floored. the diagnostic machine from autozone read misfire on #5 and n o2 sensor. i changed it and got the power back but it continued to idle roughly. then stopped running AGAIN no more than about 15 minutes later. now i have changed the spark plugs, oil and filter, also drained the gas tank and refilled wit a higher octane gas it started and produced a white smoke (no odor)the idle was softer than before but still rough and now the motor kills after about 5 minutes and sounds like its not getting enough gas and starts bogging down.[PLZ HELP ME: [email protected]] (also changed IAT sensor helped with rough idle and nothing else, use throttle body cleaner, helped with start up but nothing) the spark plug from #5 had oil on it, pa-pa-paPLEEZZZZZZ dont tell me its a head gasket and if it is, is there a cost efficient way for me to do this at home???

Thank author of this post/comment"2004 Dodge Ram 1500 all power shuts off"

Twice in the last 3 month my truck will just shut off, "All Power", as if the key was turned off, when slowing to a stop. I've seen posts about EGR Valves and wondered if that were it, but would everything go out? I also saw a post about a fuse in the main computer which sounds more electrical, but he said that it couldn't be changed. Mine feels electrical because of NO POWER. When I turn the key off and on again it starts right back up and idles fine.
