Question about 1987 Dodge Ramcharger
I inherited an 85 ram 150 about 6 years ago from a friend of mine. the truck has not been in running condition for about 5 years. it wouldnt crank or even turn over. i recently decided to finally get the truck working so i bought a new battery, spark plugs and wires, a new starter, changed the oil and gas. now it will turn over, but it wont stay running. i tried starter fluid in the carb which will usually crank it up, but it wont stay running. also i usually have to use a jumpstarter, even with the new battery. it has an inline 6cyl. any suggestions to getting the truck running? its been sitting a while...
Sound like a fuel pump ,but dont buy one until you check all the fuel lines right to the tank i had that problem with my 86 it sat for 1 year and mice chewed a hole in the rubber fuel line under the bed, the pump took me 20 minutes to install and it cost like 14 dollars but i dident need it, check your timming for hard starting

I was in the same situation inheriting one myself that was sitting for 7 years and had the same problem i changed ann fluids and got it cranking and almost started but the ground wire was glowing red so i sanded down a spot and put in a new ground. it got it running but never stayed so all i did was put a new alternator and ran new fuel threw it and it runs like a million bucks.now the only thing is the brake lines or master cylinder.
