Also check your throttle position sensor. My first thought would be a possible Oxygen Sensor issue as this tells the ECU your air/fuel mixture and if it is not working can run to rich or lean.

If your Dodge is a Ram and is consuming oil it could be a plenum gasket. They are known to go bad and cause oil consumption along with knocking sounds and lack of power when on throttle hard, towing or going up hills. This is due to vacuum leaks caused by the bad gasket. I think it runs about $300 to $500 to have dealer fix.

1987 Dodge Raider started cutting out going up hill. At first it would just pull back and buck back and forth. It never had a problem on the flat. Now it has a problem on the flat too and completely stalls...

Fuel pressure from the fuel pump needs to be checked,it needs to be 4 to 7 pounds psi,also check the fuel filter,and the carburetor.Has the engine been tuned up,new plugs and plug wires ,and cap,and rotor?Check the vacuum advance ,or spark advance if it has this option.

87 Subaru GL Carb/AT. The car starts well and idles. The problem is I have no power going up hills. Flooring it, I go 30-35. I can put the car in nuetral and rev it all the way up so it's not a clogged...

I would change the fuel filter anyway. Fuel filter problem manifest under a load usually. It is easy to do and cheap. This will eliminate one possible cause for your lack of power. Another reason may be your timing. If it pings going up hill also, you can ****** the timing a couple of degrees and/or try some fuel additive or higher octane gas or octane booster.

My 1987 Dodge Raider has been in storage for 4 years. My problem is it will turn over but will not start. However if I pour a little gas down the carburator it cranks right up.Were do I start trouble...

If you know where the fuel line comes into the carburator, disconnect it and try to crank to see if there is fuel coming out, could be the fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator or even the fuel pump itself, check the filter first. Good Luck.

I have gotten the old fuel pump off my 87 raider but cant get the new one on.

Do you have the right part? Is rust keeping you from getting the new fuel pump on?

'87 dodge raider wont ilde.

My 88 raider did the same thing. As long as I had my foot on the gas pedal it would run but if I lifted off the gas it would die. It ended up being a vacuum line. I can't remember which one (possibly the AAP) but not sure. I did replace the AAP diaphragm and all of my vacuum lines.
