Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD

1 Answer

1998 Dodge Ram 4X4 Pickup

When the engine is running it runs perfectly. If I am not running the engine at at least 20 - 30 mph, it will stop when the heater or air conditioner is turned on. If you turn off the AC or Heater , you can easily start the engine and it runs fine until you turn on the AC or heater and it stalls out again. You can run the AC or heater with no problem at hiway speed. The pickup is now intermitently refusing to stay running and idle when it is started. I have founfd that if I start it and put it into gear without giving it a few seconds to idle, it will stall out and then refuse to start again without giving it gas and keeping pressure on the gas peddle. While keeping pressure on the gas peddle I can throw it into gear and once I bring the truck up above 25 - 30 mph it will then allow me to take pressure off of the gas peddle without stalling out. I continue to have the problem with the heater and AC being on while the truck is driven under 25-30m mph as well as the newer problem decsibed above. I took this problem to my local Dodge dealership and they could not make the pickup stall out while they had it, so they couldn't figure out what was casuing the problem.

I hope you can help me out.

Try disconnecting the battery (both terminals and let set for a few hours) with ALL the accessorries on lights-heater-radio etc. This will draw all power from your system, then recconnect battery, it's worth a try even if it doesn't solve your problem. Bill

My air conditioner quit blowing cool air. My 2006 Nissan Sentra is leaking coolant out of a skinny black hose near the front left of the engine by the air conditioner line. how can I stop up the hole?


Good idea is to drain the coolant from your radiator, then replace the hose that is leaking and then fill with coolant to the proper level. Drive your car and have heater running to remove any air in the system.

I have a 1995 GMC Sierra 500, the heat only blows hot when the truck is idling, when you get up to say 30 mph or 35 mph it will only blow cold air. What could the problem be?


It sounds like the engines thermostat is stuck open, when you idle the engine has little air over the radiator so the heater will work, but when you are driving lots of air and the engine runs cold. I am sure you just need a new thermostat.

2001 s10 did not overheat but lost power, coasted to stop, white smoke from tailpipe and engine. What could this be?


The white smoke is probably steam caused by coolant getting into the cylinder(s) either from a faulty head gasket, cracked cylinder head or cracked engine block. The loss of heat from the heater indicated that coolant was being lost..
