This is caused by some sort of fuel restriction within the fuel filter or, it could be a weak or failing pump as well.

I recommend changing the fuel filter and replacing the fuel pump. You can also benefit from replacing the spark plugs and wires. this will improve the performance of this vehicle.

If the engine light is illuminated, it is best to get the codes by running a diagnostic scan soon on the ecm.

98 dodge ram 1500 the truck idles funny and spits and spudders and misses when you give it gas. if you put it in drive and give it gas it does not go anywhere it backfires out the exhaust and intake. But...


Code 1683 is for a problem with the EGR solenoid which controls the EGR valve, and code 597 is for the IAC valve not being able to keep idle speed at the correct setting.
A leaking EGR valve could cause the symptoms you describe.
I assume you looked at the cap and rotor and they are ok.

Check engine light stays on, but doesn't read a malfunction code. Car does not idle normally, has some very small sputter at low speeds. Runs great at high speed, but does not get good gas miles.


Go to your nearest Auto Zone store and have them put their computer on your vehicle, to see what code comes up (IT FREE). They should let you know what the problem it...if not....let me know what the code is and I will let you know what is wrong..Hope this helps you ??

Mustang stalls when trying to drive and will shut down


Measure fuel pressure on injector rail - should be 38 to 40 psi. If low or fluctuating, then replace regulator. Another possibility is the in-tank filter being clogged - rare I know, but trash in the gas tank and it's clogged.
