I have a 5.2 ltr engine that is missing out and dies when it is cold. After I drive for about 10 miles it warms up and stops. I had a computer readout show only an oxygen sensor was bad. Could only this cause my problem?
Re: My 1996 Dodge Ram 5.2 is missing out and dies.
I had an oxygen sensor go out, and my dodge almost wouldnt run, i would reccomend replacing the bad oxygen sensor. The sensor could be telling the computer that there is to much fuel in the exhaust and cuts the fuel down enough to kill the engine, or vice-versa, Another thing could be the Intake air temperature sensor.

I have a 1988 dodge ram charger with a 318 motor with throttle body. It runs really good when I start it up and drive it for about a half of an hour. But after that when I step on the throttle a little bit, it hesitates. If I let off a little bit, it will go or if I really step on it, it will go also, but if I just hold it there, it really hesitates If I stop, the idle jumps up and down so much it causes itself to stall. It seems to only do this at low RPM's. If the RPM's are higher it's fine
my favourite mantra this time of year. check the ignition relay... it is often located in the engine compartment fuse panel.... another consideration is you may have a shorted wire or poor connection in some part of the distributer cap or coil. can't recall if they used coilpacks that far back in the model years but that's a suspect as well.
