I have a 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 van. The running symptoms are similar to it being starved for gas. It seems to start up every time but it acts like a carburator that has a stuck choke. Yes, I know that it's fuel injected. Sometimes at a stop it will suddenly lunge forward as if someone stepped on the gas. Yesterday it was having a hard time going up a hill even though I had it floored. I have replaced the crank locator and two of the sensors. I was told to replace the other two sensors. What do you call the thing that looks like a carburator? I replaced one of the three there.
stalling at idle and low speeds. Replaced low idle controller, but it had fed back and damaged computer. Replaced computer AND idle controller. A year later, I am on my 5th computer and still not resolved.
