What are the fuel key dimensions for this vehicle
I was driving on the highway when all of a sudden my check engine light began to flash and i was loosing power.. I lost all speed and was forced to pull over to the median.. My fuel pump was on the way out so after being towed to my house I went ahead and bought the almost $300.00 part.. Changed it and found that I had no spark... Knowing that everything on the truck electrical wise was new, I went ahead and ordered the single board engine computer... I just finished assembling my truck due to the fact that since it broke down, I had the great idea of painting it while I waited on the computer to come in... Bottom line the computer did not fix my problem and I have a very pretty truck that is still broke down... I do know that I used to be able to pull the codes by clicking the ignition on and off three times and that the check engine light would blink at me... Ever since this problem the check engine light will not come on... It is not the bulb... ANY IDEAS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED....... Thanks a MILLION to whoever helps!!!!! Bad ground?
oil capacity for oil change
Thanks again valleyautotech for your recent answers. I think I have found the problem with th 92 D350 5.9L eng. I was cleaning the intake manifold and heads when I decided to go ahead and pull the pushrods and lifters out. Everything looked good. I still had a feeling that the timing was just not right due to the fact that at idle it would jump a degree every few rotations and jump 15-20 degrees at high rpm. Since the lifters were not in I had a straight shot at the cam. I took a ratchet and rotated the crank back and forth multiple times and as soon as I turned it bam the cam would rotate as to tell me that the timing chain is good. Just as I was ready to assemble everything I noticed that the pinion gear on the oil pump did not move as abruptly as the cam did. I could rotate the crank an eighth of an inch or more and then the gear would catch. I called two dodge dealers and both had the part in stock. My question is by changing the oil pump gear should I in turn remove the cam and change that gear or cam as well, or is the cam gear made of harder steel causing the oil pump gear to wear instead? Thanks again I appreciate it! Mike
Thank you valleytech for your former response. My 92 D350 was in turn not blowing by the intake manifold. It was actually leaking out of the head where the EGR valve crosses over. Would this cause my maintenance light to stay on? The truck runs great after I adjusted the timing that was 20 degrees off. I pulled the fuel tank and found the fuel pump 50% clogged with aluminum. I am in the process of putting the intake back on and want to know if there is anything else that I can check. My truck like I said runs good but out of the blue the truck will backfire and stall any ideas? It does it enough to where I can not drive the truck. I vacuum checked the EGR and it opens under vacuum. I have also put new plugs, cap, rotor, egr pressure switch, purge switch, coil, breather, fuel filter, o2 sensor, etc. I have a feeling that whatever is keeping the maintenance light on is causing my problem (not the check engine light). Could it be the timing chain? It starts right up and idles like a champ. the timing does advance about 15 to 20 degrees when floored but is at 10 degrees btc at idle. I also checked the distributer and it is just halls effect so I do not think that anything is wrong with it. Out of ideas thanks alot!!! Mike
I need to know the valve clearance specs for a 1992 Dodge D350 5.9L gas engine. Also, the #4 cyl. was blowing out through the intake manifold. Is it common on this vehicle? I will check to see if I have a stuck valve once I find out the valve clearance. Thanks, Mike
