Hi, thanks for writing in. There could be multiple issues causing misfiring and engine ticking on your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 ranging from issues with the electronic ignition system to fuel flow. Without having some specifics, it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what’s causing your issues. The best bet is to contact one of our local ASE certified mechanics to complete an engine misfiring inspection. They’ll be able to download any error codes and pinpoint the source of your Ram’s issues.
