Dodge Ram Van B250 Problems

Rerouting Ignition Coil/Spark Plug Wires Can Solve Misfire/Surge Problems

On the 3.9L V6 and 5.2L V8, rerouting the ignition coil wire and spark plug wires can help solve a misfire and/or surge problem that occurs at approximately 45 mph. A service bulletin was published that outlines the specifics of the repair. It states the rerouting procedure should be performed before other repairs are done for misfires, surging or spark knock.

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.

Erratic operation of idle speed control motor
An erratic idle, stall on hot restart and/or low speed deceleration. may be caused by a faulty idle air control motor. Our technicians tell us there is a revised IAC motor to correct this condition.

Traded a Honda Accord for this van...during a very scary time when gas prices were rocketing higher. Why might you ask? Well for one, I always wanted a van like this, "Conversion style"...and 2.
