Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck

1 Answer

Dodge 2500 it seems backfire and misses.

While driving my dodge 2500 it seems to have a miss and it backfires a little. If I pull off the road and shut it off, when I restart it it will run fine for a while. The check engine light is not on either.

Some of the things that I would consider are a plugged PCV valve, a vacuum leak, a cracked distributor cap, or a faulty voltage regulator. I would also check the condition of the ignition coil. And even though the check engine light is not on, I would have the vehicle scanned to see if any fault code(s) are stored in the computer. (Never trust a light to not be out)Hope this helped and good luck.

95 thunderbird backfiring through air intake


Something like this is often a stuck or poorly sealing valve. A Vacuum gauge is the least obtrusive way to notice vacuum changes. If a cylinder fails to seal, vacuum will reflect the loss of compression and it will result in a bounce on the meter.

95 dodge van, 2500. has a BAD engine miss, seems to smooth out when going up hill (giving it some gas) gets bad again when just going cruise speed..


Well to start with, if you have a 1995 Dodge van and it has the original engine, you have a fuel injector for each cylinder. The last year Dodge used a carb was 1987.
So you could have injectors that are not working, or the plugs may not be firing because of the cap or rotor, or it could be a compression or vac problem.
I would want to know which cylinders and then go down the list of possible causes. You should be able to use a vac gauge or tach and pull one wire at a time to find the weak cylinders.

97 gmc seirra 2500 5.7 misses and backfires on deacceleration


Is this problem only on decel does it have a stable idle An egr that is not closing on decel could account for missing even stalling but the backfire indicates excessive fuel in the exhaust stream and egr gas is inert and is only used to dilute the fuel mixture to reduce combustion chamber temperature and control the formation of NOX gases

Check for burnt intake/exhaust valves. Sounds like you have one or more not sealing correctly. Could possibly be a worn out distributor as well.
