Sounds like the fuel pump may be failing. Also check gas tank cap, vents, and air filter.

SOURCE: I have changed computer all sensors rebuilt

odd,usually if a dodge starts then stalls the ballast resistor is bad,just put a jumper wire across the 2 terminals(white cermic block on the firewall,2 wires) if it runs then replace the ballast only other thought is,have an ammeter? check the back of the gauge,sometimes they burn up and kill the whole system.
Don't quite understand why unplugging the Alt. would matter but check these 2 things anyway.

I have a 1995 Chevrolet suburban with a stuck lever on the four wheel drive. It won't go into four wheel drive. How can I fix it?


go underneath and check all pivot points and slides for rust and seized. Check for dried mud build up if you have been off road. Clean the area around the levers and lubricate all moving points.

2004 Buick Rainier four wheel is stuck in AWD drive all the time .


All wheel drive is just that-- All wheel drive-- not to be confused with 4 wheel drive . The difference is with AWD there is a 3rd diff in the transmission that allows the front and rear wheels to operate at different road speeds . When 4wd is selected that 3rd diff is locked and so both front and rear wheels drive at the same speed regardless of ups and downs in the road surface . This results in a torque wind up in the drive train and places load on "U" joints --splines --CV joints and gear teeth . The grinding on turning corners will be the CV joints trying not to flex because of the torque wind up . How to prevent this problem=== Do not use 4wd on hard road surfaces === as the tyres cannot slip to relieve the torque Restrict the 4wd use to snow , mud and loose surfaces TO fix the problem unselect 4wd drive and reverse several yards to release the pressure in the drive train and the actuator has a chance to pull the gear out of lock up. If that doesn't work check that the actuator is actually working

How to get ur 4wheel drive back to 2 wheel drive 1994 s10 truck


Under the Battery there is a vacum motor with a cable on it. This cable is stuck or bent as default is the car is in two wheel drive. at the other end of the cable is connected to the front axel. Notmally there is a spring that pulls the cable towards two wheel driove and the cable pulls towards 4 wheel drive, if the spring were to break or get gone once engaged in four wheel it'll stay that way. Normally there is a plastic cover on the axel where the cable enters the cover and this spring in under this cover. It's possible and likly that if used in deep mud and water that this cover will fill completly with mud and dirt and it will need to be cleaned out to work smoothly. if left dirty for a long time the sping and the sliding parts can lock up and it will not engade or disengage. After driving in dep mud and water it's best to clean this area oput and with no disassembly you can wash this place with a high pressure car wash wand and clear all the mud out but if it rusted you'll have to take it apart and clean it and relube it. If you want to run the truck in deep mud regully you need to do this yourself as paying someone else to do it could be expensive. If your not handy with tools and the way things work it'll be best to have a professional do it with you watching. This truck if run in and out of four wheel to run in the mud regularly will do this over and over again and knowing how to do it right, and which tools work best and how hard to hit the stuck parts with a hammer are all best learned from a pro and don't try to teach your self. If your just going to run around all the time in 2 wheel drive just pay to have it done and if you don't put it in four wheel it won't go there unless you turn it on.

The four wheel drive in the dodge 2500 is slipping out of four high when under load, ie going up hill in snow an mud.o


There is a shifting fork inside the transfer case that is worn out. not engaging the gear all the way
Not that difficult to replay. You will have to split the case, but not everything has to come out.

What is the four wheel drive switch for??


The switch is to put the vehicle into four wheel drive for off-road and increased traction on snow and ice.

My 4 wheel drive isn't working. why are my tires spinning on the littlest patch of ice?


Hi Correia,
Having four wheel drive built onto a vehicle gives traction through all four wheels, meaning that if one of the four wheels looses traction all the driving motion is directed through that spinning wheel. When driving on snow, ice or mud, gently does it all the time! Gentle acceleration and slow down using gentle gear changes. Use the brakes as little as possible. Remember if you lock up the brakes and the vehicle begins to slide you'll have no control at all! Traction control is entirely different than four wheel drive. Traction control will control any wheel which begins to slip and thereby keep you in control.

I want to know about the power and the winter buttons. I want to know in the snow if I need to use the four wheel drive high or the four wheel drive low. I have a 1998 Honda Passport 4x4 automatic...


Four wheel High is what you need to use in snow. It is similar to your regular driving experience but your speeds should not exceed 45-50 mph. Shift through your normal gears as necessary and drive with appropriate caution. Four wheel High should be used only as long as driving conditions warrant, using it otherwise can cause unnecessary wear on your transmission and drive-train as well as lower fuel economy.

Four wheel low is used for pulling out of a ditch if you are stuck, going through deep mud or rock crawling. Four wheel low will also cause your vehicle to lurch every time you press the gas pedal.

How can i select 4 wheel drive on my 06 jeep grand cherokee it has an auto gearbox thanks


Most of those have Quadratrack which is full time four wheel drive. (lever all the way to front) neutral is used when towing your vehicle and low range is only used when in severe conditions or pulling another vehicle from a mud hole etc. That can be engaged by rolling slowly forward and pulling the lever all the way back. On all other systems though some can be engaged at a standstill, it usually id better to shift while rolling, usually below 20mph. Neutral in all systems is as I said before.
If it cannot be shifted, or it does not engage, likely it is either not properly adjusted or the transfer case or another component is worn.
