January 11, 2007I have a 2001 RAM quad cab 4x4 with and auto and a 318. Completely stock. It has 127k miles on it and has always run fine. Recently it began to start hard. It cranks more than it ever did but eventually starts. The dealer said it had fuel pressure and it started fine for them. They said it was either the crank position sensor or the fuel pump.
I replaced the crank position sensor and cleaned all the electrical connections in the ICM and TPS. Its driving me crazy because someday it is going to crank and not start and leave me stranded.
