These cars had mass air flow sensors that would make them perform like that. If you ever get the vehicle running, simply tap on the mass air flow sensor. If it stalls, replace it.

Have you done a tune lately on the car?

Wheh i try to start it it sputter and barely start but it chugs and dies i checked fuel line it is getting gas can you help


Check fuel pressure,
most likely you need to replace fuel pump
not that hard and only takes about 30 min
pressure needs to be around 65 lbs
5 lbs less and it wont run

96 dodge ram sputters and dies whem you give it gas


you need to check fuel pressure with a pressure gauge to see if its within specs.it should be around 35psi and no lower then about 32psi.your problem sounds like a fuel pressure problem and the pump should be changed as well as the filter, but check to make sure the fuel filter is not plugged as this can also cause a pressure problem.

Sputters and dies on cold start, significant drop in gas mileage.


You need to rebuild the carburetor or clean the choke linkage and make sure the choke valve closes cold.

My car has been starting hard and sometimes dies unless I pump the gas a little when I'm cranking it


Maybe you need to change the gas filters or maybe try better gas or maybe change the fuel pump.

1984 dodge w-150 a/t starts and runs good go down the road and it hardly wants to run sputtering do 3 mph replaced everything cap,rotor,plugs,wires,pcv valve,air cleaner,fuel filter,ballest risistor dont...


it sounds like the its not getting enough gas to stay running. try looking for vacum leaks with a propane torch going over all the vacum lines with the FLAME OUT but the troch on when it is idling. if the idle goes up at any time when the torch passes over a line than you have found your leak and replace the line. even if you have one line bad keep going over all of them. and if there is no vacum leaks than start the engine and let it idle for about ten minutes, shut the engine off and take all the plugs out. if any of them are wet with gas than you have a spark problem and then begin going over your cap, rotor, wires, and points.
