1996 Dodge Ram Van 2500 Q&A
1996 Dodge Ram Van 2500 Question: What is causing my van to stop running when it is hot outside. Fuel pump is new.
My van stops running when it is hot outside and it seems like it is vapor-locked. After the sun goes down it runs again. It seems like the fuel just shuts off and it is stranding me after I have driven for only a very short time in the afternoon. In the mornings it seems fine but by 11 am it will shut off and not start for hours. I have replaced the fuel pump, the plugs, the gas cap, added cleaners, had various certified mechanics "fix" it only to spend hundreds of dollars and be stranded again. - happyhoshor
could be a module overheating and shutting down. ck fuel pressure and spark after it shuts down next time then post results - globalhelper
