Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab

1 Answer

Check engine light , trouble code 34

Dodge ram 1500 PU check engine light code 34.
After starting engine runs smoothly for a few moments, then the check engine light comes on and the rpm goes up to about 1100 from 750 rpm, just a little rough running.

I shut the engine down and ran the light check procedue and got the code 3..4, and then a 5.. 5 to end the reading.

Did a quick check to make sure there were no obvious broken wires or vacuum lines.

Re: Check engine light , trouble code 34

Your truck is OBD2 compliant take it to a local auto parts store and have them read the code for you they usually do this as a free service, if it doesn't have a obd2 port then your truck is not a 1996 vehicle.

I have a 1994 dodge ram 1500 318 engine that suddenly started running rough as of yesterday and check engine light comes on?

I would start with the throd body and Mass Air Flow system for build up, do not listen to anyone who tells you that low grade gasoline is ok for you to use, your engine will not perform well on it and will cause a sticky residue on the throd body and MAF sensor. Also it is critical that you keep your truck with a clean air filter and service with oil changes and spark plugs as needed, follow dodge reccomendations, I learned the hard way 1994 Dodge Ram PU 1500 Quad and 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 PU both were the same way, they both had trouble with AC and Radiators as well.

hope this helps

This may not help you much,but
as long as you have a check light on,
cam sensor codes etc,you should be
working on those issues,not trying to
drive it.

Don't mean to be hurtful,but if I couldn't
start my truck in 2 min,I would start to
diagnose the issue.

the quickest way to resolve the problem is for the shop to plug in a fault code reader, and it will give a list of all current fault codes.
Being simplistic. The engine needs fue,l air and a spark at the correct time in order for it to run. If any or all are missing the engine wont run.

A Dodge fault is the in-tank fuel pump failing. This can be checked in a few moments by fittting a pressure gauge to the fuel rail and trying to start the engine. Observing all safety precautions whilst doing so. and also prior to actually tring to start it.

I am surprised that the shop is unable to pin point the problem or at least narrow it down. Trying to fault-find a modern vehicles problems without using a fault code reader is very difficult and time
consuming indeed.
I would be interested in hearing of the problem resolution.

Try replacing the headlight relay to fix headlights.

First check is a look in the fuse box for a blown or loose fuse and also push all relays into their sockets. The check engine light shows that a trouble code is registered in the computer. Rent a scanner, read out any code(s), and pursue to repairs.

Check engine light on code p0441 dodge ram 1500 my 2007 dodge ram 1500 is puttering and acting like it wants to die out can you let me know what the problem is.

This trouble code is Evap Purge System Performance fault. 1) Check for a loose or missing fuel cap. 2) Check for a damaged or missing fuel cap seal. Recheck for other trouble codes. This fault wont cause the stumblering problem. It turns on the MIL lamp to say there leak in the EVAP system.
