Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
New wires plugs changed to electronic ignition put new 9 volt bat under dash
Must be the choke setting on the carburetor. You might try to take the breather off the top of the carburetor and look at the center where the air intake is and see if the choke plate is opening when you turn over the engine while trying to start. If the plate isn't letting air pass try to jam it open with something clean and preferably made of plastic that won't scratch anything. If the engine starts the choke setting probably just needs a adjustment .

go to Didgeforums.com.
I had a similiar problem, found the solution there. It was the wiring harnes on the drivers side under the hood, just above the wheel well. there are a cluster of wires in a bundle. I unpacked the bundle carefuly and sure enough the were two or three wires all coroded, had wite powder from corosion. repaired the connections and bingo. I posted details at dodgeforums.com. browse around there. I posted pictures as well. this is a common problem.

I had same problem. Engine will start if you crank it for awhile. This is because the fuel pump has a . check valve that is supposed to keep fuel from running back into tank and hold fuel at pressure so it will start immediately. If valve leaks it takes awhile for fuel to be pumped back up to injectors. Replacing fuel pump fixed my problem.

check all battey connections and system grounds. Check that the battery has 12v and holds properly when load tested. To check charging system, don't disconnect any battery leads...put a volt meter across the battery. when running, you should have at least 12.9v and volts should not drop. (usual reading is generally at or near 13) at idle with all accessories on voltage should be close to that as well. voltage should not exceed 14.Also make sure that drive belt is not slipping.

My 88 raider did the same thing. As long as I had my foot on the gas pedal it would run but if I lifted off the gas it would die. It ended up being a vacuum line. I can't remember which one (possibly the AAP) but not sure. I did replace the AAP diaphragm and all of my vacuum lines.
