Question about 1990 Dodge Ram 50

1 Answer

1990 Dodge Ram 50 not making power.

Truck will idle fine, it's right when it's put into drive it bogs down, when giving it gas to take off it is very hesitant. Not only will it not make power when stepping on the gas but there is a knocking noise. We replaced: Spark plugs, plug wires, air filter, rotor, rotor cap, fuel pump, fuel filter.

Timing! Timing chain? Check both!

    We checked the timing and timing chain since that was the first thing we figured what was wrong.

    You must then check the error codes after you try acellerating and hearing knocking. Also is the oil burning or thick?

sounds like the torque converter is not disengaging you might need a TCC switch (torque converter clutch)

SOURCE: I have 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 4X4 gas engine and it

The problem I had with my '89 Dakota was it would suddenly stop running while driving. After from 10 minutes to an hour I could start it up and drive on. It started happening more and more often. I was in a rush to get the truck running so I replaced both the computer and the timing module in the distributor to fix the problem. However, I suspect the real problem was the timing module was failing causing the engine timing to go out of spec and computer sensed it and shut down the ignition to safeguard the engine.

Good Luck, Bob

The carburator needs to be retuned under a load to correct the problem. Take the truck back to the place were the carburator was worked on, and have them to check the carburator out for correct adjustments. Hope this will help you !!

Start with the simple things first:
Make sure you have a clean air filter.
Change out your fuel filter.
Most of todays crappy gas is 10% alcohol and the weather is warming up.
Then if not: Sensors and computer chip upgrades may be the issue but start simple. If you have a good reliable tune up guy take it to him and have him run the diagnostics. Any lights or codes come up??

91 Dodge ram 50 ignition problem, rough idle in drive,dies when braking


my ram 50 starts just like any other vehicle, (no light switch pulling whatso ever), it sounds like somebody haas rewired something wrong or you have a loose connection and when you hit a large enough bump it cuts your power. Start it up and find a speed bump somewhere and drive over it enough to give your truck a jolt and see if it dies.
