1995 Dodge Ram 1500 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I want to buy a used 95 ram 1500 p/u, owner said he replaced radiator 4 times since new in 95. This isnt normal so what could be wrong ? also says he replaced the rearend and the new midshaft bearing bad after only 2 years.
My Ford Truck man father informed me that he believes the head is warped. When it comes to all things Dodge, he won't even look at it, unless it is to get the cattle to market and his FORD is down. He states the engine overheaded. Other than that, I have no idea of symptoms, due to fact the truck is in Blanco County, TX and I'm in Harris County, TX...going home this weekend to look at the truck.
Had the spark plugs and the wires changed cause it was jerking and backfire and now it does it when I accelerate
Just replaced engine. Only used block, heads and distributor from new engine. After replacement it now runs terrible after it warms up. Replaced cam sensor, crank sensor IAC, MAP, TPS, coolant temp sensor and spark plugs. Has new injectors and 40psi fuel pressure. Runs "ok"(drivable but not great) till the thermostat opens and then starts to pop and fart and barely run. No codes present. Good fuel pressure. Timing marks are about 5 degree before TDC, Vacuum is a little low but not terrible.
vehicle ran great until this happened
The head of the pigtail broke on the electrical line going into the fuel pump and I need to rewire a new one on there
It is when warm or cold engine .
What ever the problem is it affects the check engine light! When you turn the key you know if it's going to start or not if the check engine light comes on it'll start, if it doesn't it will not! The problem comes and goes with no warning, the first time it restarted in about an hour, the second time it was a week or so before I could start it!
I replaced the engine with 1 out of a 1995 Dodge Ram van but I had problems getting the crankshaft wheel to align to the flywheel. I finally got it to bolt up but I think the wheel was bent in shipping. Well long story short the truck wont start. It cranks and fires but seems like the time is off. When it does start it backfires and sometimes afterfires then dies. Would a bent crankshaft sensor wheel cause this?
I the truck stopped on me on the freeway at a high rate of speed, I later found that the converter was clugged, I had it cleaned out and now it runs good. But now starting it up it slowly drags as if battery is down or starter is going out. But I dont no which one. How can I test this before buying something new.
I have changed the throttle censor, o2 censor, egr valve, new plugs and wires, new distributor cap and rotor button, new gasket under throttle body.
down the road.you can hear the fuel pump kick in . its not getten any fire
