Question about 1992 Dodge Ram 150 Club Cab
I have a 1992 Dodge 150 cargo Van. It is a full size short van with a V6 engine and automatic transmission. When the weather drops below 40 degrees it won't start.
I turn the key and it will turn over but not start. If I leave the key turned forward the two relays under the hood on the firewall start to click. When they are done clicking if I turn the key it will start immediately. The colder it is outside the longer it takes for the clicking to stop. This can be anywhere from 5 minutes up to 20 minutes.
Otherwise, the van runs great. It never has this problem in the spring or summer. Once it gets cold outside it happens everyday with the intitial start. It won't do this on a restart unless it is very cold and the van has been off for awhile.
I replaced the relays that click but it still does the same thing. I cleaned the battery connections and looked for broken grounds.
Again, the strange thing is that it only happens when the temperature outside gets below about 40 degrees. I guess If i lived in a warmer climate. I would not even know that this problem existed on my van.
Try using higher octane fuel or octane boost in the winter this is a common problem on the dodge V-8s,after about 60,000 miles. However yours sounds like fuel line freeze up V-8s experience moisture in the fuel lines. Higher octane should help you may also wish to change your fuel filter, and run a fuel line cleaner through your van Seafoam is a good one.
