Question about 1992 Dodge Ramcharger

1 Answer

My1992 dodge van stalls when i put it into gear sometimes.

My van has a 318 normally runs great and gets about 16 mpg in the city but lately it stalls when i turn a corner sometimes and restarts great but when i put it into gear it spits and stalls like its out of fuel. i checked the onboard ( turn the key off and on 3 times) and i get 5 flashes pause then 5 flashes. so i looked up error code 55 but cant find it listed anywhere. ive changed my crank sensor,.disributer cap and rotor, plugs wires,plugs, and pickup doesnt happen all the time but is becoming more frequent. does anyone know what code 55 means and/ or know what i can check next? thanks

Please check your motor mounts.
A broken, or even a worn motor mount or two can negatively pull on your linkages so that your van will do this.
Understand that if the motor and/or transmission moves loosely, other things can be affected, such as shifting gears and wiring.
God bless your efforts.

1992 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3L stalled and wont start. No hum from fuel pump when key turned on, no fuel pressure at rail. I tryed starting fluid thru intake and no go. What could cause this?

is the fuel pump working now. sometimes the fuel relay can be the fault for no fuel. you need between 3-5 bar on fuel rail so just putting fuel in will not work. you will need a meter to check there is voltage getting to the pump the wires on pump remove them and connect to the meter and turn on ignition if volts then the pump is dead if there is no volts the relay is not working or the fuse has blown, , if fuse not blown then the relay is not working, or there is a damaged wire, even if the relay clicks it doesn't always mean its connecting.

Poor gas mileage on my 1993 dodge caravan

If you want fuel economy then dump this beast and buy a nice peugeot or citreon picasso diesel manual then you will get around 30 mpg around town and anything up to 70 mpg on a run ,try paying our fuel prices and this nice typical american petrol gas burner would be delegated to the classic car sunday drive out like my jag with its 4lt engine i can only afford to take it out once a month or so on a jaguar club run around ,other than that its my ford diesel manual escort with its 0 to 60 in 15 minutes but it only uses one tank of fuel a month.

1992 Dodge 250 van, 318, Automatic - Dies when coming to a stop

I cannot see how adding a fuel additive would help to be honest. I would be looking for a split or leaking vacuum line, I have even seen a leaking evap canister before that caused a similar problem. Does the engine pull clean and strong when it is warm or at cruising speeds? Does it feel like its running lean or misfiring?
