Question about Dodge Ram

1 Answer

I have a friend who owns a 1994 Dodge Van, equipped with a 4.9 litre V6. The van idles ok, but a little rough, when you hit the accelerator it begins to sputter and die. He has replaced the fuel pump, ECM, Distributor cap, rotor, and pickup, and the EGR valve all to no avail. Can anyone help us troubleshoot this problem? Thanks, God Bless, Glenn

I know this sounds dumb but there is a cable attached to the same bracket as the throttle cable that goes to the transmission. This cable is called a kick down cable or a "down shift" cable. It tells the transmission when to down shift. If the car slows down and the trans doesn't down shift then the car can't turn the tires because it is in the wrong gear. Try replacing this and see if it will move better. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Where are the O2 sensors located on a 1994 ford e350 van?


Hi Gerard,
The O2 sensor, also know as Lambda Sond, is screwed into the exhaust pipe.
You will find them just before, and just after the catalytic converter along the exhaust pipe.

2006 Dodge Caravan Sputtering. Code says EGR Valve. Would an EGR valve cause the van to sputter and run rough?


Absolutely. You'll know if your EGR valve is stuck or malfunctioning because your car will experience symptoms like rough idle and bucking on acceleration.

looks like not enough fuel pressure, check the fuel filter.
and the fuel pump pressure.with car running 60 psi
the pump is located at the rear seat driver side you have to remove the carpet to access the cover. if the fuel pressure checked "OK" suspect defective maf sensor (sometimes defective maf sensor do not show errors codes)another way to test is disconecting the maf sensor and start the car (computer goes to limp in mode) and works little better,or check by scanner idle= low grams per seconds and increase when accelerate.
