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 coil.it 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.

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.

Check the transmission fluid,with the van at normal temperature and after runnig it through drive and revers a few times then place it in park and check it with the engine running,if it's down then top it up with chrysler type fluid and get the leak fixed,if it's not down on fluid then get a transmission shop to look at it.

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?

BAD ON GAS


You should be getting close to 360-390...depending on the type of driving you are doing. Increasing your gas mileage could be as simple as getting a fresh oil and filter job, change your air filter, change your fuel filter...and a biggie believe it or not, make sure you have the proper tire pressure. This will kill your mileage faster than anything else.

City MPG: 16-18 mpg
Combination MPG: 18-21
Highway MPG: Approximately 26 mpg

I have a 87 dode 318 4x4 early spring it over heated thermostat went bad. my problem is it starts fine but will stall when i put it in gear and if it dont stal it only goes 20mph


had similar problem with my 86 w-150. it would run great when i started it but as it warmed up it would slow down and stall. when truck overheated it warped the cylinders. had to rebuild engine, bore block, replace pistons and rings. hope this is not the case with yours but it really sounds similar
