    yes but what else came to mind was a sensor or the catalytic converter. Do you think those two things can be possiible?

    If you don't have an engine light showing, i would think it would be air or fuel. A sensor would trigger the light. You could certainly check the converter if the other ones don't help, but you have to go from cheap to expensive.

How about the pick up coil in the distributor? A trick we used to use back in the day was to tap the distributor housing with a hammer, key word tap. If the engine missed or stalled than the pick-up coil was replaced.

My car still back fires even though my timing marks arew in line how do i solve this problem


I don't know if that is the only problem that your car is having, but usually when a vehicle backfires it shows other symptoms, if it backfires you should also check the catylytic convertor to make sure that it isn't plugged up also, if it is you will eventually lose power and use alot of gas.

Loss of oil pressure in a dodge 2500 with a V10 gas motor


Have your mechanic check the oil pressure with a pressure guage. A oil pressure sensor is the most possible cause, but please make sure of proper oil pressure to avoid engine damage.
