Default 04 1500 misfire #7 open circuit injector #5

I have a 2004 Ram 1500 4x4 5.7 hemi, 176,000 on truck 12,000 on engine. Tune up done with all OEM parts when engine was replaced (done at Dodge dealer). I have a code for misfire on #7 and open circuit fuel injector on #5. I have done the following, tested spark on all plugs, compression test, leak down test, and noid light test. I am unsure on what I should check next. The truck runs rough at idle and at lower speed load, if I drop a gear and give more throtle it smooths out and runs great. It did this last time also but that time it faild all tests for compresion and leak down on #7 (this is why it has the newer engine). Any ideas please help, I cant afford to throw money at the problem to do trial and error. Thank you!

I just fixed my 4.7 that had a misfire on #2 cyl. It ended up being the coil pack. Check the connections at the injector to make sure it's not loose or disconnected.

Both the coil pack and connections are good, I have great spark from both points on the coil pack. Thank you for the reply! Any other ideas?

This was a complete reman/rebuild. They started from bare block and put everything new into it to make it a long block.

OK, gotcha. I there a reason you haven't gone back to them to get them to fix it? Or was this a while ago?


Anyway, you need to go after the #5 Injector code FIRST. Misfires are subjective, but a circuit code is not, so that's why first. Keep in mind that a malfunctioning cylinder can affect the whole bank (1357) and sometimes both banks. The #7 may be a result of the #5 in other words.


Take an Ohm meter and measure across #5 injector and compare it with a couple more injectors.

That is within tolerance.

Might be time to pull the valve cover and check the valve springs.....

What did you compression test come back as?

150psi and held (dropped maybe 2-3psi) for 20 minutes (while I ate lunch). It was within the same tolerance as the other cylinders (between 140-160 aprox). There was no pinging in the valve train and it does have the upgraded springs installed already. I am going to take it to the dealer for diagnostics, it could be something as simple as a cracked or corroded wire that I would not be able to track down. I cant figgure it out!

Thank you all for the info and insight!
