1993 dodge Grand Cherokee with a 318 hard starting when cold until things under hood click and fuel pump runs.

Your jeep ecu is in need of repair. It has what is referred to as the delayed check engine light problem. If you'll notice, next time you try starting the jeep, it will not start when the check engine light finally comes on, on the dash. The fuel pump will only come on when the ecu finally energizes the relays, and that's when all the clicking starts. Look on ebay for an ecu repair service.

99 dodge 1500 p-up-318 block starts fne, warms up and starts to hear air suction sound from under the hood, motor kills and then wont stay started after that...

check all the vacuum lines, and the PCV valve, get a can of carb cleaner, and while the motor is running, spray short bursts of the carb cleaner all around where vacuum lines are located, if the motor rev's up thats where your leak is going to be

Replaced all electircal parts under the hood when engine turns over i only get one spark from coil then no more can try again a few minutes later same thing one spark and thats all, no fire to the plugs at...

New coil? New points and condensor (if applicable) If electronic, clean sender and receiver phototransistor and sensor wheel in distributor? Is distributor rotor turning with engine? Make sure you have good electrical connections and solid ground to engine block.

What should i set the timing at for my 94 geo metro i have a timing light should i set it at 0?

Unless you have replaced the hood or the sticker has been removed, there should be a label on the inside of your hood that lists the correct timing.

Make sure you short the two appropriate wires in the 'test plug' before setting the timing. It's on the drivers side firewall under the hood. The idle on 94 Metros is automatically controlled so you don't have to worry about setting the idle before adjusting the timing. My 94 automatic metro says 5BTC.

1983 dodge power ram 150 custom pickup truck

The 318 was an engine fitted to all manner of vehicles dating back for quite a few years.A torqueflite sounds right although your trans woulld be different than sedan etc due to having a trransfer case to have to run.It may be easier to drop it off at auto trans specialist who can recondition the original one.At least it would save hassles from compatibility issues etc.For engine parts look under sedans that used the same engine.Asalvage yard would be a good place to look for the numbers you need .Are there no web sites that deal with your type of truck?4x4 clubs etc
