    Hi, Back-firing can also be caused by too much oxygen in the exhaust system,which causes combustion in the exhaust system.So check for any air leaks in the exhaust system.And check the air injection system if the 1995 ram has one.I also recommend a repair manual if you havn't one yet.They are available at auto shops.I suppose the question is: Is the back-firing the cause of the stalling or is the stalling the cause of the back-firing? Frank.
