SOURCE: line up of trans to motor doing clutch replacement 88 dodge ram

Leave your clutch assembly bolts loose, so the clutch plate can move as needed to line it up, then tighten them after tranny fully in place. I believe most autoparts store now will lend or rent you an alignment tool if necessary. I guess I was lucky, I always seemed to find something I could use to align it by eye.

SOURCE: 1998 dodge ram pickup 318 eng.

If the engine seems to run fine over 1450 RPM maybe there is a vacuum hose leaking or EGR valve is slightly stuck open. Any help from the OBD II trouble codes? Or is there simply no MIL and no stored information in the OBD II computer read at the local parts store through the connector by the drivers knee?

Have you checked youre water level? White smoke can indicate water. May be headgasket. I would also dble check valv clearances and timing for tge rough running. 180° out of timing may be the rough running too.Just go through top to bottom your work. could be wires not in correct position.

I have a 1988 dodge ram d250 with a 318 fuel injected motor that runs rough when u hit the gas and it is blowing black smoke out of the til end and i do not know why

Black smoke could indicate blow by in a cylinder or the valves might not be closing properly. Start with a compression test.

My 1988 dodge d150 runs rough when cold and going uphills

how old is this truck ? needs complete tuneup, new air & fuel filters, wintertime brings out the all the problems, also, replace EGR valve, & PCV valve, they will choke the hell out of the engine, your filters are very important also, if there dirty/old, they will starve the engine. talk to the ole girl while you do all this work, she'll respond, I promise !!!! make sure all the vacumn lines are good, tighten all throttle body bolts, etc

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. Check all your vacuum hoses to be sure they are attached properly and also look for cracks in them
