Overheating, lack of power under load

Have you checked the engine timing (advance). If that is not working you will have a loss of power, overheating, funny noises.

If it is fine then check cylinders for compression and cylinder firing.

My 2005 dodge ram starts but lacks power then when i turn off and start again it just dies


Look for the fuel pump or fuel filter to cause the problem. The lacking power and the engine dieing after starting is caused from lack of correct fuel pressure. Hope this will help you.

A/C blows hot air going uphill or pulling a trailer.


you will need to change the clutch fan, under load or high speed will heat up the engine and the clutch fan should ingage to pull more are through the radiator. Also at idle with no air moving through that radiator the clutch should ingage to pull air through.

Overheating/Loss of power


Unless water pump bearing is loose or noisy or the pump is leaking, that's not your problem. Have the system flushed. Thermostat is also likely not the problem but with repeated overheats or near-overheats it will become unreliable so change it as a precaution.
