1987 Dodge Raider started cutting out going up hill. At first it would just pull back and buck back and forth. It never had a problem on the flat. Now it has a problem on the flat too and completely stalls...


Fuel pressure from the fuel pump needs to be checked,it needs to be 4 to 7 pounds psi,also check the fuel filter,and the carburetor.Has the engine been tuned up,new plugs and plug wires ,and cap,and rotor?Check the vacuum advance ,or spark advance if it has this option.

97 dodge ram no spark


then i would replace whats called the hall effect sensor its that black plastic plate you see when you take dist cap off. just pull rotor and lift up the sensor.dist cap is what holds it on.also under the sensor will be a stamped sheet metal piece that looks like the top of a castle wall. make sure its not loose on the shaft.if it is then new dist will be needed

Hey my omni wont start at the moment. we replaced the distributor cap and rotor and its not the map sensor what else could the problem be please help


If the car has current in the plugs and gas coming to the cylinders then it damn well start. Is the car being cranked? if yes, the battery is fine. Check the current in the plugs. The spark should be blue. The fuel pump working?

Won't start


take a little bit of starting fluid and spray into the air cleaner and try starting it. if it fires this way you have a bad fuel pump. and also take the cap off and spin the motor over to see if the rotor is moving because i have seen the distributor shafts in these older trucks break off so they will not spin

Want to check pickup assem in dist.


Fouled spark plug? Bad wire? Rotor / cap new? Check those things out, wear a thick rubber glove, take the wire off the non working plug, put a screwdriver next to the wire (while car is running) and see if a spark is made. If it is, your plug is bad. If no spark, replace wires. Still no spark? Change your rotor and cap. Still no spark? Ignition module. Following those steps will save you some green.

Dodge omni will not start and run when it is cold will run fine when it comes out of a warm garage


The choke assembly needs to be adjusted. Should take a good mechanic about 5-10 minutes.

1995 Alitma ran rough and stalled


Its just fouled some plugs again. Need an overhaul. If you just put a valve job on it it will just put more stress on the rings and will need it anyway. Not much you can do except change plugs all the time!
