Run the fault code test and see what shows up, bet the Crank sensor code shows.

My 1998 dodge durango slt wont drive past 40 miles an hour


Hello Jeff Winner,

Over the last 20 years ... cars have has a LIMITED OPERATION FEATURE added... When the engine READS something that is not IMMEDIATELY catastrophic... it will allow you to
LIMP home... rather than a complete shut down.

Limp mode:
You SHOULD also have a CHECK ENGINE light... (?)

My best advice is to limp on down to your near-by FREE code reading shop... and have a READER tell you what CODES are registered...

A blocked exhaust system will also seriously SLOW your progress
((soon to stop all-together)).

Hope this helps

Check you exhaust prices BEFORE you go...!!

Can I put a 1998 dodge ram 1500 4.7L V8 engine in a 2002 dodge ram 1500?


Yes it will fit but why, it is a very poor engine choice as they are fraught with mechanical problems. the 5.2L is a better choice.

2003 Silverado 4.8 V8. Speedometer and tachometer, as soon as underway, read past maximum. When engine is shut off guages do not return to "0"


Hi Norton,

What has happened is your speedometer and tachometer drive motors are failing inside your silverado instrument cluster. I see this very often in GM trucks, to fix the problem you need to have your instrument cluster rebuilt.

Check out this article that talks more about it http://drspeedometer.com/chevy-silverado-instrument-clusters-why-they-quite-working

Thanks,
Fred

I have a 1993 dodge dakota v8 pickup with a very strange intermittent problem .I can be driving and the engine will just shut down like turning off the ignition.I can crank it over and over and it will not...


i have the exact same problem and would love for it to be solved, except mine has a minor detail attached. If i pop the hood and then slam it while cranking it(not THAT hard) or almost immediately crank it after slamming hood, it will start back up usually.

i have had mechanics look at it and say it looks fine that they can't diagnose what is wrong with what i tell them, but there is nothing more to it, it just shuts off.

i drive a 1992 Dodge Dakota v8 pickup (also i have a 600 watt amplifier connected, a friend of mine claims this could be making the problem)

Fuel and Temperature Guages


Have your alternator output checked; the voltage regulator might be failing.
You can check it easily across the battery terminals.
You shouldn't have any more than ~ 14.3 volts at any revs., and about 12.6 with the engine off.

If it checks out OK, the next step would be to access any plugs to the instrument panel, pull the connectors apart and then replug them.
You may have a flaky ground under the dash too.
