July 29, 2011My 07 ram with a 5.7 Hemi will not start. It turns over fine, and I can hear the fuel pump. I pulled the codes and it has two EGR codes one for low voltage the other for a closed EGR valve. It also has the code for the Vehicle Speed Sensor. I checked the pins to the EGR valve with a volt meter and it is showing 4.95 so I am assuming that the computer is ok. I pulled the ERG and will replace that today and see if it starts. I just have not had any experience with a truck not starting due to a bad EGR so I am not holding my breath. Any advise on this would be greatly appreciated.
July 29, 2011I`ve never had one not start due to that either so that would be a first for sure. Did you try and clear the codes and start it?
August 1, 2011Thanks for the input. I replaced the valve and cleared the codes and it started right up. I put over 300 miles on it this weekend with no issues. $40 fix and I am sure I save half that with the gas mileage boost weekend alone.
