You will most likely have some codes in your computer for this. Is there a check engine light on as well? The 4wd is a separate issue. Have the codes inspected. Don't be surprised if it is a Crank Shaft Sensor, BUT have the codes inspected first to verify this. here is a link to some shops who will do this. http://repairpal.com/directory?address=72801&car_brand_names=Dodge

im having same issues with my dodge ram, 5.9l , i did a self computer diagnosis onboard and came out with p code 340 which is the cam shaft position sensor. im gonna replace it and clear memory and go from there. thats why im here doodling around here. to get p codes on my truck all i do is ignition to run then off then run then off then run, approx. 3 times then it begins shooting code on mileage area on speedometer. try it.any questions, email me at email@example.com, BY THE WAY. Save your money and try diagnosis yourself before giving a mechanic 80 plus dollars for same code readings
