Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD

1 Answer

1998 dodge 1500 bogging down on takeoff. Just started the other day. Driving fine all day, then after making a turn sounds like the motor is bogging down. Give more gas and the truck will finally gain speed and go through all the gears with no problems. Just on take off. Havent drove it since. Wondering if it might be the IAC or a bigger problem - Tranny? 1998 Dodge 1500 5.9L 4sp Auto

    I remember last week that it cranked and ran good for a bit. I got out of it and when I went back it would crank, but not idle. As long as I was giving it fuel it would run, but no idle. The check light came on, but it resolved itself and the light went back off. Will there still be a code if there is no check light? I changed the plugs and wires, got the cap and button behind the seat. Guess I need to put those on too.
    Thanks for the info

Why wont my car accelerate?


If you have an overdrive transmission the direct drive clutch may not be releasing. Have the trouble codes read to see if the computer or a sensor is starting to fail.

I have a 1998 dodge ram 1500 5.2. It has a


sounds like you have a bad alternator the alternator generates power from the engine which in turn keeps the spark plugs firing (and all other electrical components) the higher the rpm the more power you can generate up to about 3500 rpm or so I suggest removing the alternator and bringing it to your local auto parts store to have it tested I would also bring the battery and have it charged since you don't want to put a new alternator with a less than full charge on the battery (you can damage it) WARNING:On older vehicles it was common to check the alternator by starting the engine then removing the battery terminal ... (if the engine died the alternator as bad) However on newer vehicles you could damage more important and expensive electrical components including the computer or brain of the vehicle.

1998 Dodge Ram 1500 won't start


still sounds like the timing belt/chain to me,especially since it just shut off goin down the road, had a 93 that did the same thing,dodge has a kind of safety switch that if the timing belt breaks the engine will shut down to keep you from tearing anything else up.
