1999 Dodge Ram Van 1500 ProblemsPoor connection at crank sensor
An intermittent connection in the crank position sensor wire connector can cause poor engine performance or the engine may crank but not start.
The AC/heater (HVAC) system may unexpectedly switch to the defrost mode when accelerating. This system is operated by engine vacuum and should be inspected for any vacuum leaks if this problem develops. There is also a revised vacuum check valve available to address this concern.
