Could be the choke spring has deteriorated with age hence the choke assembly will need to be replaced.
You could also install an aftermarket choke cable to operate it manually. Good luck

My guess would be to tighten up the choke a small bit

My 98 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 318 in it will stall at stop streets only when it is at operating temp. When it is cold it will not stall. The Truck runs good down the road.


Sounds as if you may have a MAP sensor reading incorrectly when warm and causes the stalling. You may also have a vacuum leak that is not noticeable during warm up or while driving.

97 dodge caravan start and stall in morning, if warm up 5-10 minutes then no driving problem. if warm up not enough the van will lose idling and stall at stop sign or when my foot is leaving the gas pedal....


The choke function is not working on a cold engine.
1 clean throttle body and IAC motor air pathways.
2. Check for engine codes, you are looking for a code that relatws to the wngine temperature sensor.

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
