1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Q&A
1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Question: Truck starts and idles fine but boggles down when put under a load.
I have replaced the plugs, distributor cap, rotor. check the thtrottle body sensor and the volteage did not increase when the throttle was moved so I replaced the throttle body sensor. Checked it and the voltage increased and the trottle was increased. Thought I had the problem solved but after a test drive it still has loss of power. took off the throttle body and cleaned it as well as the IAC and also checked the map sensor to make sure it was not clogged. Truck still has a loss of power and the idle now is slightly higher. I would also note that the check engine light is not on. Any advise. Thank you - Big Red Fred
What is fuel pressure? Is the exhaust plugged? - tires too
REMOVE AN O2 SENSOR AND DRIVE TO SEE IF ISSUE IS GONE,IF SO EXH IS PLUGGED - globalhelper
