Sounds like it might either be the ignition box or possibly just a bad connection in the wiring. my bet would be on the ignition box though.

Hi i have a 1992 dodge ramcharger with a 318 engine.runs for 10 to 15 minutes then dies,then will crank but not start,not getting spark.i have replaced fuel pump,fuel filter,fuel lines,ignition coil,pick...


Look for some electrical or fuel related heat affected problem ... Something stops working when the car gets to operating temperature. Beyond that, I can't be more specific, Tony. Good luck ... When you find it ... post your answer please.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

1984 dodge Ramcharger w/318 been running great last night .No spark have gas at carb spins over no spark,dist dry,no fuse for ingnition that i can see any help?


check distributor module, oreilly can check these for free. also maybe plugs, wires, cap, rotor.. if this isnt it maybe the pickup coil went bad which would usually be easier to buy a new distributor instead of taking apart distributor, if you have to replace distributor i would check junk yard prices on something older like that you can probably get parts for pretty cheap

Pull the coil wire out of center of distributor cap and lay it close to where you unpluged it from distributor cap, and turn over engine if coil is good you will see the spark jump. If no spark coil bad.
