1991 dodge ramcharger 318 engine stalls driving down road. shut key off for a few seconds starts right back up and runs fine. any ideas?


It's losing one of two things - fuel or electricity. I would check and or replace the fuel pump and fuel filter first.

1973 dodge 318 truck starts and drives fine until 35-40 mph then dies


Sounds like a fuel supply problem. Does it pop through the carberator as it it is dying, like a lean back fire? If you drove it up a hill would it die before 35 or 40 mph? If the fuel demand excedes the fuel supply the engine will die, but would restart after cranking the engine for awhile. Possibly a plugged fuel filter, fuel line, rotten fuel hose, ( sucking air ) or tired fuel pump. Hope this helps.

Where is the fuel pump on a 1973 winnebago dodge 318? It will turn over, but will not start. Do you think its the fuel pump or something else? It has not been started for several years. Thank you so much...


Try putting a little gas in the top of the carb. Then try to start, if it starts then it's a fuel problem, clogged filter, lines, carb or fuel pump. If it doen't start with the gas then check for spark, disconnect a spark plug wire put on a spare spark plug, ground plug threads to motor and have someone turn over motor. You should see a spark between plug and electrode. Also you could check compression of engine, rings could be siezed and no compression will mean no start. If low or no compression, pour wd-40 or other lubricant into spark plug holes and let sit for a couple of days. Hopefully that would unsieze rings.

I have a 1993 dodge d150 318 no spark or no power to fuel pump could it be the crank sensor?


A BAD CRANK SENSOR WOULD NOT CAUSE A LOSS OF POWER TO THE FUEL PUMP. ARE U SURE ABOUT THAT, THE FUEL PUMP ONLY RUNS FOR 1 SECOND WHEN THE KEY IS TURNED ON UNBLESS ENGINE IS STARTED. DO A FAULT CODE TEST ON THE COMPUTER, GO TO THE WEB LINK FOR INSTRUCTIONS AND A FAULT CODE LIST, VERY EASY TO DO.

Hi, do you have the smog diagram for a 1973-440 motorhome.? thank you


73 was an awful year for smog devices.
You could just look at any 1973 Dodge diagram, because a motorhome is no different.
But my advice is to take all smog stuff off. It did not work well in 73, and harms engine. You don't have to test anyway.

Can't remember for sure on that model, but a lot of winnebago models had the dash that you push up at front area, and the entire top would lift and open up toward windshield. Just a thought.

My bmw 318 ran out of petrol now it wont start i have changed fuel filter


if you can't hear the fuel pump cut in for a couple of seconds, check the fuse. Check the relay, or replace it with a known good one. See if you have power to the fuel pump. If you have power, your fuel pump is in need of replacement.
When you run an electric fuel pump out of gas, you should always cycle it about 10 times before you try to start the engine. That is, turn the key to on for a few seconds, and then off, and repeat. You need to get some fuel up to the engine.
