Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. Try this. Remove the air filter housing and start your truck. Place your hand over the intake. If it surges the engine you have a leak, it the engine dies then you have a fuel issue. If you do have a leak its simple enough to find. Have someone sit in the truck and apply the brake with the vehicle in gear. Take a pair of pliers and pinch off one vacuum line at a time. Have your assistant gently apply the gas as you get to each line. When the engine stops stalling you've found your culprit. Note: If it's not a vacuum leak it could be a fuel return line issue. There was a recall on the return lines for the 88-91 model Dodge pickups. If the return line is blocked the engine will not run. I hope this solves your problem.

I bought an 89 dodge spirit, and it wont keep the battery charged has had multiple new batteries put into it and it also stalls every time its put into gear what could be the problem


Most probably, the AIC stepper motor is bad, one way to kno, is when the engine slows at idle when you swithc on the air conditioner, and the Idle automatioc control does not correct the RPM dropping from the increased load. An engien that does not maintain correct and stable idle cannot maintain the battery charged, but it could have multiple issues.

89 ram charger starts and stops, running irratically - HELP !!!


what you can do to test the idle control motor, is spray some brake cleaner or other thin, clean finishing solvent on it to let it release when the gas pedal is released. it may just be getting hung up after the vehicle warms. hope this helps
