Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2003 dodge conversion van ram 1500 it had trouble staying running the other day and couldn't leave the driveway when I got home I tried again it started then shut off after I revved the gas. That happend twice the third time it started and I could drive it around a few times ? I let it sit two days started it and the oil gauge went up to 40 immediately I stepped on gas it climbed higher and did not go back down? I checked the oil it seems low I'm going to get oil today is there anything else this problem could be?

SOURCE: Car shuts down while driving

It is very likely the part that is giving you the problem is a Crankshaft Position Sensor, they go open circuit when they get hot, then after it cools it becomes a good circuit again, this is very frustrating, had the same issue with my Buick a few years ago, replaced the coils and the ignition module at a cost of hundreds, DID NOT CHANGE A THING, the crank sensor fixed the problem and was $30.00 from Buick.

SOURCE: Ram van dies

sounds to me like the fuel pump is bad, when it warms up it dies, try to check this by filling the tank and running a while, then run the van with a near empty tank and see how it does. A full tank of gas should keep the fuel pump cool as it is surrounded by the liquid. I had a similar problem. when my tank got to about a quarter full (3/4 empty) the van would shut off after a short distance, then after sitting for a while would start up again get me a little farther then shut off again. i ended up changiung the fuel pump cost me almost $300. if this simple test shows no results the you got electrical problems, check distributor, and surrounding cables. good luck. also check your fuses could be dirty!

SOURCE: Fuel Gauge reads empty, but tank IS full

the float in your gas tank seems to have water in it....water is heavier than gas, that's why gas floats on top of water....try putting something like HEAT in it to dry up the water in your tank....

SOURCE: Van stops running

You need to look at your fuel pump it does not pump to specification when it gets hot. You might just have to replace it.

Good luck

SOURCE: 'Check gauges" light comes on and oil pressure gauge reads zero.

The first thing I would definitely do there is change the oil. Used oil tends to loose lubricity and becomes thinner than it was when in the container. When hot, it becomes even thinner and will cause a drop in pressure.
Most jeep engines hold around six quarts of oil, so by adding what you did the new oil helped a bit but cannot correct the problem.
I would change the oil and use either a 20w50 oil with a pint of Marvel oil, or change to a good synthetic with a container of Lucas additive. It is possible that whatever oil you have been using is causing a carbon buildup that is beginning to block off the pump pickup screen. Either of the above suggestions will help with that. In engine oils, price is important...cheaper oils are high paraffin base which causes deposits to form.
You don't want that in your engine. Only exception is Wal-mart store brand oil which I believe is Quaker State (re-packaged). If you opt for a synthetic, it's not a bad choice and is cheaper.
Make sure you use a good quality filter. The filter is what keeps the oil clean and useful during its lifespan.
One note... If there is any tapping or knocking inside the engine, that is caused by internal bearing wear and should be corrected immediately. No oil can compensate for internal pressure loss and if caught early, can be repaired. (otherwise, later, engine will need to come out and be overhauled or replaced.)
Any pressure problems can be verified by installing an external mechanical gauge on the engine. That is the only way to know exactly what is going on with any degree of accuracy. (dash gauge is electro-mechanical).
good luck

Verify that the ABS wheel speed sensors in the wheel hubs are operating properly. They tell the vehicle individual wheel speeds, and can be just as important as the vehicle speed sensor. Also, verify that the individual wiring connections are properly connected, and inspect the wiring.

ONE SUGGESTION COULD BE TO SWAP THE RELAY FOR ANOTHER TO SEE IF THIS FIXES THE PROBLEM. IF IT DOESN'T, THEN PERHAPS THE COMPRESSOR CLUTCH IS STUCK IN THE CLOSED POSITION. UNPLUG THE CLUTCH TO SEE IF THE COMPRESSOR STOPS. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING. GOOD LUCK
