1996 Dodge Ram Van 3500 Problems

Engine performance issues due to spark plug wire induction
Some vehicles may exhibit one or more of the following: Spark knock complaints when the vehicle is under load, various single cylinder misfire, and surge in 4th gear (around 45 mph). Our technicians tell us that rerouting the coil and spark plug wires to minimize induction effects will commonly correct this condition. If wires must cross during the reroute procedure, they must cross at a 90 degree angle.
Fuel Pump Failure Due to Failed Primary Pick-Up Screen

Insufficient fuel pressure may be caused by particulate contaminates or other type of substances by-passing the primary fuel pick-up screen and resulting in fuel pump failure. Our technicians recommended to replace entire fuel pump module assembly as two (2) filters, primary and secondary are included with the assembly.

Poor 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.
