Error code 54 cranks won't start
Oil pressure gauge and fuel pump and fuel filter and distributer and my truck just wondering why it will die while driving then won't start but cranks over I also had a stereo put in could that be the problem I'm at whitts end
Truck goes in reverse but when in D, d1, d2 it does nothing but rev high rpms with no movement. Thought is was bad tranny, dropped pan and no metal shavings in pan so reassembled and put new fluid. Ran ok but a bit rough for 2-3 days and then issues came back with not dropping into any drive shifts. So checked code manually with the on/off 3x and on again watching light blink and only got code 33 and then the code 55 end of codes.
just trying to figure out why my cruise is not engaging on my 1992 dodge Dakota 5.2 litre
It cranks , an a couple xs it fires , but i dont even take my foot ofc the gas sn it will die
I don't have a book and just need diagram of fuze box under the dash
Just put 300 into it and it will crank over but wont start
I just replaced the fuel pump the splice was not corroded it gets spark from the distributor but it just cranks and cranks if fuel or starting fluid is put into throttle body truck starts but doesn't stay running although it does backfire. It had been stalling out occasionally then went to the gas station put some gas in it drove home then wouldn't start.
Won't start not getting any gas or fire
Truck started and ran normally. After driving thirty minutes, engine lost power, sputtered then shut off. Restarted engine, ran rough (loping) then shut off. Will not run after trying to restart it.
I was Drving home from work and it became hard to shift gears got it home and killed it and then next day went to go to work and i put it in 1st had my foot on clutch pedal and then started it and the truck took off had to turn key off to kill it then tried to start truck then put in gear and won't go in gear i then took off slave cycled and looked at it and the rubber piece on the end of rod was wore down changed the slave and master cylinder then bleed it and started truck and tried to put in gear and still go won't go in gear when I try to put it in gear truck starts to roll a lil like it almost in gear but won't go in
but then will die if driven again changed crank position sensor, starter , battery ,fuel pump, idle position sensor,and pick up sensor any ideas
Without the 4-way flashers the truck will stall out or putting in Reverse it will stall out or turn on the headlights was still out
What could be causing this. I did a full tune up yesterday and that didn't help. Could this be a fuel issue? I read that this could be caused by the C Converter or possible fuel issues, going to also replace the fuel filter soon. Once rev the truck up in first and let out the clutch it stops shaking, this also doesn't happen everytime it accelerate and only happens in lower gears.
Hard clunk into reverse all the time. While driving and shifting gears has a clunk also. Transmission also seams to jump from gear to gear easily while driving with light acceleration or deceleration.
Transmission fluid is still red in colour and still has some viscosity (not thin like water).
I haven't looked much into this issue because i have recently bought the truck
