Question about 1989 Dodge Ramcharger
I have a 1989 Dodge Ramcharger. It has started to be a bit more difficult to start, and it sometimes dies as I am driving down the road at low speeds, not with brakes on, just lower speeds. It has died on me once on the freeway. When I am driving, especially just starting out after a red light or going up a hill, it sometimes starts to "buck", almost like it is cutting in and out, not getting gas maybe? It will do this until I get it up to 55-60 mph. Any ideas?
That could be caused by several things. Is your check engine light on? If it is on it could be due to a number of sensors such as the MAF(mass air flow), MAP(manifold absolute pressure), or EGR(exhaust gas recirculation). However if your check engine light is not on it could be caused by bad plugs and or wires, lack of fuel pressure caused by fauly fuel filter and or fuel pump, or it could be caused by the timing being off a few degree's. Please provide me with the engine size and any work that has been done to that vechile recently to help rule out some of these possibilitys.
Hope this helps for now.
