Question about 1990 Dodge Ram 50
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.

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 !!
