It is when warm or cold engine .
What ever the problem is it affects the check engine light! When you turn the key you know if it's going to start or not if the check engine light comes on it'll start, if it doesn't it will not! The problem comes and goes with no warning, the first time it restarted in about an hour, the second time it was a week or so before I could start it!
I replaced the engine with 1 out of a 1995 Dodge Ram van but I had problems getting the crankshaft wheel to align to the flywheel. I finally got it to bolt up but I think the wheel was bent in shipping. Well long story short the truck wont start. It cranks and fires but seems like the time is off. When it does start it backfires and sometimes afterfires then dies. Would a bent crankshaft sensor wheel cause this?
I the truck stopped on me on the freeway at a high rate of speed, I later found that the converter was clugged, I had it cleaned out and now it runs good. But now starting it up it slowly drags as if battery is down or starter is going out. But I dont no which one. How can I test this before buying something new.
I have changed the throttle censor, o2 censor, egr valve, new plugs and wires, new distributor cap and rotor button, new gasket under throttle body.
down the road.you can hear the fuel pump kick in . its not getten any fire

shut it off after driving around doing errands.. went to staret it again and nothing. No power to anything. Fuses are good so are connections that I can tell.
Headlights and back lights work but no brake lights. Fuses for brake lights ok.
sometimes it will fire up for short periods of time.
