 Description of the problemDriving at a speed of 45 mph the truck--2008 dodge ram 1500 5. 7 hemi-- died. I had no power steering. I was able to shift into neutral and stop. Very thankful i was on a country lane and not on a freeway because there was no warning and i could have been in a horrible accident. The check gauges light icon was flashing as i tried to re-start it. It would crank but not start. After waiting for 15 minutes it did start up again. The engine icon light was showing and it said that an oil change was needed. The oil change wasn't due yet for another 1000 miles, or, two weeks on my three month schedule. I get the oil changed every three months. It tried to stall from then on as i accelerated from a stop, on my way to to the dealer. The diagnostic showed a code for the egr valve, which was replaced. This was fixed four days ago and so far so good, but am very anxious when i drive now, worrying that it might happen again, especially after seeing so many posts online with others experiencing the same problem with their dodge ram trucks. This truck has 35,300 miles on it. This truck was serviced six weeks before this incident with: a 16 cylinder hemi tune-up; a throttle body service, fuel induction flush and fuel system treatment; transmission service with filter change; machined front and rear rotors; and tire rotation.
