Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500

2 Answers

Truck will idle but can't give it any gas to go.

My 2004 HEMI started fine this morning but it was idling funny. It was reving high and low, high and low. I jump in to drive and I could put it in gear and move but i couldn't give it any fuel to go anywhere. My guess is this happens because something else is wrong. The electric bolt is flashing on the dash. What does this mean?

Mine was doing it intermetently and ended up being a faulty fuel pump. Took a long time to figure out though.

I guess i will never know exactly what was wrong. Got home after work and fired it up and she ran like a top. I hooked up a code reader and it said all systems go.

Does the engine rev up when you press on the gas or bog down?
Do you smell a funny smell when the truck is running?

Truck idles wierd with a/c on

In this series of truck they used an idle up solenoid mounted on the side of the carb and is controlled by a vacume switch. If the idle setting is too high the cut out switch will shut off vacume and idle drops and goes up again because it is too low for the load. This will go indefinitly till you have the idle set down on idle solenoid screw.this is basicaly a very easy job if you know where the screw is. Dont set wrong one
