You didnt mention mil light , so I will say it fuel related, install fuel pressure guage to rail port, should be around 48 psi, fuel pump issue, restriction, possible tps issue also, can be cecked with volt meter, 3 wire system, 5 volt feed, sensor grd,and sesor return to pcm, at idle .12 volts, to wot 4.55 volts. also check igntion coil , seperation in metal core GOOD LUCK RDJRP

Just put in brand new alternator 2 days ago. Now it wants to stall when slowing down and at intersections.


Have car scanned at autozone or similar. My guess is egr valve or IAC. Egr exhaust gas recirculating valve, IAC idle air ?ontrol valve.

Car idles fine, but sputters, bogs and dies if gas pedal is pressed.


new spark plugs this decade. (a tune up?0
the filter is part of all 60k tuneups. letting it clog wrecks good pumps.
my wild guess, its lack of fuel flow, do to old filter.
or low fuel pressure.
car is identical to a Corolla. so is not unique or rare as some Geo cars are.
the cam belt not changes, invites valve kissing piston tops. BOOM
end of engine. (costs more to fix then worth of car)
the word is bogging, my engine bogs
if if bogs WOT (wide open throttle) and dont catch up < ITS NOT THE TPS. ever.
tps bad causes short bogs, called hesitations.
The map sensor , is what measure air flow and the ECU matches fuel to this air flow.
my guess, is it does that, but fuel pressure is like 15PSI, bad.

Car idles fine but when you step on the gas it bogs down, and won't accelerate. The car will not go over twenty miles an hour.


what year.
ever tune it up,
no, then the fuel filter i packed, air filter same.
if it is tuned up and newer than 1996 and in USA, (are you)
then you can use any scan tool for $7 and read DTC errors.

to get power from any engine only takes these things.
1: DC power to EFI, a volt meter, proves this is 1min.
2: full compression,. 4 readings.
3: good spark at all spark plugs, 4 tests.
4: good fueling. (tool lean, bog, too rich misfire bog"violent")
there are 4 tests.

the tune up also cleans the EGR valve /
there are other rare failures but the above is the majors.

My 1990 dodge power RAM v8 with a 318 runs good when its cold. But after running it for about 10min and restarting it cuts out when I push on the gas. Idles good and idles good when put in gear until I...


Start with the simple things first:
Make sure you have a clean air filter.
Change out your fuel filter.
Most of todays crappy gas is 10% alcohol and the weather is warming up.
Then if not: Sensors and computer chip upgrades may be the issue but start simple. If you have a good reliable tune up guy take it to him and have him run the diagnostics. Any lights or codes come up??
Best wishes,
TF

88 dodge ram charger 5.2 ltr engine....intermittant spark


I have a 1988 dodge ram charger with a 318 motor with throttle body. It runs really good when I start it up and drive it for about a half of an hour.
But after that when I step on the throttle a little bit, it hesitates. If I let off a little bit, it will go or if I really step on it, it will go also, but if I just hold it there, it really hesitates If I stop, the idle jumps up and down so much it causes itself to stall. It seems to only do this at low RPM's. If the RPM's are higher it's fine
