I bought my 86 ram 50 4x4 for 300 dollars and had the same problem, all i ended up having to fix was the jet valves. the little baby ones. i got them out of the scrap yard small enough to fit in your pocket. and while i was dicking with all that i went ahead and bought a head gasket set just in case for around 80-90 dollars and it runs like a champ no smoke

Dodge ram engine smokes when stated and skips


What color smoke? Black is emissions related, blue/black your burning oil and white your burning anti-freeze. With the "skip" your REF to, you probably have a bad spark plug, wire, or bad cylinder and burning some oil or coolant. CK plugs , wires & do a compression test. Pressure test Radiator for head gasket leak.

Need spark plug and distributor wire diagram for dodge ram van 1994 with 318 engine


if you have a friend to turn the engine over, little by little without starting it would help or better yet, pull the cap off the distributor leaving the rotor on, and with number one sparkplug out, cover the number one sparkplug hole with your finger but don't stick your finger in there, it'll get crushed, get your friend to bump the engine a little at a time, and when you notice a sudden whoosh of air take note of where the rotor is pointing... hello number 1, then clockwise or whichever way the rotor turns, apply the firing order... by the way it is 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2... good luck.

My 1999 dodge ram begin to smoke really bad


If your talking about white smoke out the tail pipe, U have a blown head gasket. That's where antifreeze is getting into the oil. U need to get it to shop if this is the case.

Hope this helps

Added 3 quarts of oil now white smoke is coming from exhaust


you have to drain the excess oil i would suggest a complete oil change and oil filter. TAke off spark plugs put some wd 40 on each sparkplug hole start the car without any sparkplugs on ir. Reolace sparkplugs with new ones and the car should run again. I would also suggest to check for faulty sparkplug wires and bad air filter. While you are at it go ahead and check fuel filters.

Smoking at higher rpms


Hi, its time for a ring set job in this vehicle. the blue smoke is a sign of major oil consumption due to bad piston rings. you also have faulty valve seals as well. this is deep engine repair and it will be costly.

If you cant do this job soon, be sure to watch the oil consumption by checking the level regularly and, monitor the oil pressure as well.

ROUGH IDLE,WET SPARKPLUGS,KILLS


The Symptoms tell me it is a head gasket. A leaky or bad head gasket would cause all of the problems that you mentioned.

Burning water causes White Smoke, Burning Oil causes Black Smoke. The oil and water are mixing with the gas in the cylinders and causing it to run bad. Pull out the dipstick and look at the oil on it. Does it look like good oil? Or does it look watery and or foamy or grey colored. Open up the radiator and look inside, do you see oil?

This seems almost text book to me... I would have someone local to you to have a look at it to be sure.
