Question about 1994 Dodge Ram

2 Answers

Stalls out when I stop

I have a 1994 Dodge Ram that I purchased from a family friend and recently it began to stall out on me when I stop. First thing that happens is the check engine light comes on, then the RPM's rev up and down while I drive, then if I stop the engine dies. In order to get it to start back up, I have to give it gas as I turn the key. The only way I have been able to keep it running when I stop is to keep giving it gas and keep the RPM's above 1000. It does this mainly after the engine warms up. I have noticed that after I let it sit for a few days and start it up, it runs better then when I drive it daily. Any advice would be greatly appreciate. Already changed out the PCV valve and the TPS.

Hi my name is mike ! on your mustang I would check for a vacuum leak ,that would be possibly from a hose with a hole in it or the hose fell off or broke ,also it could be from your idle speed control solenoid ,if look on the throttle body it is the other device that may have a two wire connector to it ,it will be right by the tps you replaced, it has a maybe 2-3 inch silver cylinder built into it try tapping on it with the handle of a screw driver ,dont hit it too hard ,but it may be stuck ,it may calm the idle down ,the solenoid could be stuck open ,on fords that is a common problem ,they end up at a high idle and most of the time ,if you dont have a large vacuum leak somewhere then I would replace the idle speed control solenoid ,Hp\ope this helps !

SOURCE: engine light on, stalls out, slow accel, uneven

The ignition timing is off.
The ECM (Elctronic Control Module) is responsible for that.
Take the Liberty to AutoZone to have them scan the PCM code (free) and ask for an explanation print-out (also free). You might want them to clear the error code afterwards, too (yes, free).
Let us know what the codes are and a summary of the print-out.

SOURCE: 1991 Chevy Caprice has a mild miss fire and stall

Do you have the idle speed turned up to keep it from dying? Because it is high. Check engine light on? Have you checked for vacuum leaks at the gasket under the throttle body? How does the car run under acceleration? You might have a worn distributor shaft.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your tips and ideas you have gave me, One question, but before read my latest update. my car rpms hover around in between 1100 to 1500rpm at idle, but when I shift into drive it goes to a steady 1000rpm... is that good? if not, what are the correct specs. thanks again"

1985 Dodge Power Ram Prospector Pickup Started 2 Stall When Put In Reverse, Now It Stalls Even After Its Warmed Up


I was having the same problem with my 85 Ramcharger until my alternator went out. After I replaced it the stalling seemed to stop. Other things I noticed that resolved were dimming headlights and dash lights, the radio shutting off periodically when I drove and hard bumps causing the truck to stall. I hope this helps.

1997 Dodge Ram 1500 is losing oil pressure, stalling at idle, and sudden stops. Have replaced oil, plugs, and recently had a new muffler from the manafold back installed. Truck will be running fine at some...


clean or replace idle air control valve located on the throttle body, this is the valve that adjusts the ammount of air allowed into the engine to adjust fuel mixture. If you change it clean the throttle plate of all the carbon build up

1994 dodge ram stalls out when it warms up


Could be your fuel filter is clogged. If you run your gas tank low often then trash is getting into your fuel filter and that is why it is clogged. Try some fuel injector cleaner that may help.

1994 dodge ram magnum 5.9litre motor


take a look on your fuel rail driver side, look to see if there is a test port. If so get yourself a fuel pressure guage and hook er up. fuel pressure should be Min 35 Max 45 PSI if so that rules out fuel pump, Otherwise wait till dark and get a spray bottle full of water, mist your spark plug wires so they are wet and start the truck, if you see little sparks jumping from the wires replace em. last common cause that comes to my mind is check the voltage on your Throttle position sensor black should be ground, purple should be the reading from the sensor and whatever other color should have 5Volts constant aprox. Check your codes too. key on off on off on without starting engine then count the flashes of the check engine light, pauses mean next number... post em and ill let you know what they mean
