Ram van dies

I have a 1995 B2500 Dodge Ram van with 160,000 miles. I bought it used after it sat for a long time, the problem is the "check engine" light comes on it just dies going down the road. I let it sit and it starts back up, then dies again after few miles. After several starts it finally gets me back home. It did it the first day I bought it then not for several weeks, now it's doing it again. I'm old school, never had a vehicle with computer control, it's boggled me, but I'm thinking the ASD relay is bad. Thanks.

    It was the PCM that was bad. It would work fine in cold temp but as soon as outside temp went above freezing or eingine bay warmed up it would fail. Thanks to all for trying.

    1. what are the engine light code?

    a. To retrieve them turn the key on -off on- off-on and count the flashes on the check engine light

    2. I don't think it is the asd relay- you could swith the stater relay and asd relay around if you want.

Sounds to me like the fuel pump is bad, when it warms up it dies, try to check this by filling the tank and running a while, then run the van with a near empty tank and see how it does. A full tank of gas should keep the fuel pump cool as it is surrounded by the liquid. I had a similar problem. when my tank got to about a quarter full (3/4 empty) the van would shut off after a short distance, then after sitting for a while would start up again get me a little farther then shut off again. i ended up changiung the fuel pump cost me almost $300. if this simple test shows no results the you got electrical problems, check distributor, and surrounding cables. good luck. also check your fuses could be dirty!

The only way to know if you need engine repair or you have a bad sender is to hook up an oil pressure test gage to the sender port and manually check the pressure. You will need the deep oil pressure sending unit removal tool to get the sender out (I did this).

1991 dakota intermittently stalls or will not start after being run for 30 minutes or more of running.


When it does this you need to check if you have voltage ( spark ) going to the end of the spark plug wire, but it sound to me like your pick up coil is going bad, pick up coil sit under the distributor cap under the distributor rotor same size as distributor assembly ( black ) cheap$$, good luck, hope this was very helpful.

1995 dodge van falls down when the fuel tank gets to 1/4 of fuel


sounds like a possible pluged fuel filter or a tired fuel pump. the pump is cooled by the gas. so if you work it at 1/4 tank or below it tends to get hot. but towing may make it hot anyway. check fuel pressure and the replace the fuel filter
