Question about Dodge Dynasty

1 Answer

Car stutters like it's starving for gas. Have a few issues that I could use help on. 1. Car runs great in the morning (1 hour drive). In the afternoon on my way home (about a half hour in), it starts to bog out when I declerate and then try to get back up to speed. Feels like it is starving for fuel momentarily. 2. Only can get the car to run when there is over a half tank of gas. When we cleaned the tank out a few weeks ago, it worked below half a tank, but only for 2 fills. 3. Car has a hard time going up short inclines like climbing an on-ramp . It does this whether it is at a full tank or not. We've dropped the tank, cleaned it out really good, replaced the fuel filter, pump, filter sock, about all the sensors under the hood, and the gaskets on the tank thinking it might have been an air leak causing it. I've even taken the gas cap off while it's running to make sure it has pressure. Help with any of the above would be great!

Gas cap has no bearing,lol. Check the wiring under the battery tray. They're notorious for corroding through the wiring & cause a short to the ecm. This results in retarded timing & wierd stuff going on. Write back if you need more. Old car,lots to check.

You need to have the engine control computer scanned for fault codes, if nothing shows then it is very possible you have a failing fuel pump.

Wow! The engine is running like **** with misfire codes? I think that's what you were trying to say. First, stop all the "miricle cures in a can"...fuel injector cleaners, K&N filters and the such. They will only do more harm than good. Next, replace your distributor. Honda igniters are notorious for causing the symptoms (and codes) you are describing and they are only serviced in a complete distributor assembly.

Volvo 240 dl 1987 .. fuel issue....driving down the road, car


Sounds like you need a fuel pump. There is an access panel in the floor of the car to get to the pump.

My 1969 mustaNG WILL SHUT DOWN SOMETIMES WHILE DRIVING. hAVE TO RESTART


Hi,
I love older cars. If they get gas and get fire, something occurs. I really would like more detail on what's happening with the car (symptoms)... but I'll throw a few bones out there.
If the engine is dying while driving, I would have to check out a few things...
Fuel issues, assuming the fuel pump is ok:
1. If it tends to die as you give it gas, it's possible the fuel filter is clogged enough to starve the carburator.
2. Is the carburator flooding out?... should be able to smell gas and it wouldn't want to crank readily.
3. Is there condensation in the carburator from "bad gas"? Get a fuel addative and pour it in your tank. It'll evaporate condensation build-up in the tank and carb as you run the engine.
Electronic issues:
1. If it runs great at all revolutions but suddenly dies, I would look at any loose wiring connections at the coil. Also check the hot wire to the coil and insure it isn't arcing on the engine due to burned off insulation.
2. Make sure your points/condensor are good and points gapped properly.
3. If it backfires out the carburator or exhaust when you give it gas, the timing is off a hair...
I may have missed a point or two, but these are pretty basic trouble spots. I hope we nailed it.
Cool car, by the way!
Hope this helped... Good luck!

Lose of power on acceleration like its starving


Sounds like there is a load of dirty fuel in that gas tank. Ran good for a while after changing fuel filter, then began to run poorly again. Remove fuel tank, drain and clean out, replace fuel filter AGAIN. That should cure it. Hope this helps
