1989 Dodge Ramcharger that idles rough but still cranks like br..

I have a 1989 Dodge Ramcharger that idles fine at first and then it starts idling rough and has cut off one time going down the road with no hesitation or nothing it just died. I pulled the distributor cap and there was water on the pickup plate but i cleaned the water out and all and it still runs rough. I am thinking it is that cap and pickup plate but could it be anything else and what is the firing order on that thing. It has the 318 FI.

1985 dodge ramcharger, carburetor issues


Sounds like a problem I had with my '85 Dodge D150 Ram Prospector. In my case, the automatic choke was broken and it was starved for air during acceleration because the choke was always closed. It ran fine at idle or very slow acceleration. I wired the choke open and it runs much better, although it is much more difficult to start as the fuel mix is lean due to the extra air. Once it gets warmed up, though, it runs fine. I hear that the barrel carb on mine often has problems.

Hello
Welcome to FY
very common problem on the 318/360 is the egr port becomes plugged up this will cause a poor start and run rough until warm up.
