2008 Dodge Ram 1500 stalls randomly
I am new to this forum and am hoping someone can help me out.
We have a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 that stalls randomly. No lights come on and it doesn't throw any codes. It is a 4.7L V8 engine.
I first brought the car to a mechanic and he had it for a week. Didn't know what was wrong so gave it back. Next, I brought it to Carmax and they had it for nearly 2 weeks (we bought the truck there 6 months ago). They thought TIP Modulator and replaced it. Nope, wasn't that. It finally ended up at the dealer. They said to start at the bottom and replace spark plugs. I never bought that one, but had them replace and two days later the truck stalled.
The dealer now wants to replace coils one by one which is a time consuming, lengthy process, not to mention the cost and even that is no guarantee. Bottom line they don't know what is wrong with the truck since it's not throwing codes. Well there was a history code(?) P0688. I don't know what a history code is or means, but they did some research and are going off of their dodge library.
I went to JustAnswer online and it was mentioned to have the dealer replace the crankshaft position sensor and/or camshaft position sensor.
The dealer never mentioned either of these sensors as an option.
What do you all think? The truck goes in on Monday.
