Pick up had been running fine. All of a sudden it wouldn't start (warm). It will start and run good for about 5 minutes when it is cold but abruptly dies as it starts to warm up. Will not start again until cold. Crankshaft, camshaft and ignition switch have been changed due to codes. Could ECM have a problem when engine bay starts to warm up? There are no codes registering. Fuel pressure is avg. 58 psi and remains steady even after engine dies. There is plenty of gasoline in the tank. Battery is fully charged. All fluid levels are good. Computer throws a weird code once in a while. Last code and engine light was low oil pressure. As soon as bell rang I checked gauges and had 60 psi at 70 mph. I checked with mechanical gauge and found electronic gauge to be correct. One code was low battery, again I checked the battery with a hydrometer and it was fully charged. This has happened in the last six months and now the dying problem. Not sure what is going wrong, if it were a sensor a code should indicate but no codes. Thanks so much for your help.
When driving I hear a squeaking sound at around 1000rpm that goes away at about 1300rpm in 1st and 2nd gear. Once at cruise speed it begins to make a high pitched whistle at around 2000rpm but only while accelerating. Goes away when I take my foot off the gas. Truck also has slight vibration as well. Was thinking it was the clutch as I've noticed a difference in acceleration, climbing hills and it only does it while driving. No noises at any rpm sitting still and in neutral. Never heard a clutch sound like that when going out before though. Also shifts through all gears fine. Truck is 2WD, 3.9V6 with 5 spd transmission.
While driving down the the truck (Dodge Ram 1500 v6) starts to miss and idual high and low while at light dies out
The sunroof stopped working. I want to change the fuse, but the fusebox labels don't say sunroof.?
Not sure what to put here the question is pretty cut and dry, I can see inside the crank case and the oil isn't moving from it. I even rotated the crank shaft and nothing.

2001 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 SLT 5.9L Automatic.
Transmission light on, smoke, a high temperature, and a proper and clean and fluid level. Manually shifted 1st, 2nd, 3rd, Drive, to get it to move and get it home. Could it be the transmission sensors? Could it be clogged transmission cooler lines? Will replacement of filter and fluid solve issue? Or do I have to replace the entire transmission?
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Only drove it to get it home. Did not want to make it worse.
