Ram 3500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 87,285 miles
While driving my Dodge van, it will shut of, no gas to engine. I can cruise to the side of the road most of the time. Had the vehicle worked on, new fuel pump, cleaned the ground as advised my a Dodge service center, had a complete tune up and anything else myself or my mechanic could think of. The vehicle still cuts off when it wants without warning. It will restart after 4-5 minutes.
