Question about 1987 Dodge Ram 50

2 Answers

When i go above 35mph with throttle full pressed it starts to lose power and the vehicle starts to move back an forth front to back, like it maybe running out of gas when trying to reach 40mph making it impossible to do freeway driving also when going up hills it immediatly drops in speed making it impossible to drive uphill doing the speed limit (the maxi've reached going uphill is 15mph ). I replaced the fuel pump, checked the rotor an cap (clean), new spark plug wires, and new air filter. any ideas what the problem could be?

I would think the idle speed control valve is defective.

SOURCE: 1976 Dodge motor home with a 360 will not start.

you said you took a comp. check, what was it? If it's as flooded as you say, maybe the rings are washed down and you need to put a few squirts of oil into each cylinder and crank it over before putting plugs back in. If the comp. is below 100 that's not enough. try putting the oil in and trying another check on a couple cylinders. If it's up now, around 130-150 than you're getting somewhere. if not how about the timing chain jump?

Two new tires front and back, new front springs and seals.Handled like new but once you are above 80 or so you can barely hold it from the wobble as soon as you let off throttle.


Check all your wheel nuts are the correct tightness. Get ALL you wheels re-balanced. If they are ok get the brake discs checked to see if they are warped. Then get the wheel bearings checked for wear. The drive shaft CV joints would be worth checking as well.

15 to 35mph only loses power rear grinds/shudders feels as tho riding on rear wheels without tires but the tires are fine. Possible problem?


This one sounds like you might have a bearing out or both on the back wheels. I would start there then move to the drive shaft an check the joints.

Just for testing, a few seconds, will the vehicle start and run w/o the belt? Have a helper work the throttle, is the sound gone? If problem not the belt, check the belt driven accessory. Sometimes you can use a long metal rod of some kind, with belt on, one end of the rod touches accessory housing, the other end goes on that bone behind your ear, helps to magnify the sound. I guess you could use a mechanics stethoscope to do the same thing. Have helper work the throttle while you listen to each. Don't get tool or anything caught in belt. This is a serpentine belt, I haven't looked?
Maybe an accessory trying to freeze up or bad bearing? I can't think of anything else at the moment?

2007 JGC 5.7 Hemi hesitates to accelerate when the vehicle is at cruising speeds above 35mph. When it is at a constatnt speed and the throttle is at a fixed position it feels a bit jerky as well.


I suspect TPS (Throttle Positioning Switch) they're basically a rheostat that controls throttle movement. After a while, spots that get most used develop "Hot Spots" - and will cause a surge or hesitation when at that location. Replace TPS.

I have a 1987 Dodge Ram 50 2wd 2.0L carb. , when i go above 35mph with throttle full pressed it starts to lose power and the vehicle starts to move back an forth, front to back, like it maybe running out...


well, i assume you did a compression check and have the plugs gapped properly? Okay then, this might not be what you want to hear but, disconnect the fuel lines, install a low pressure electric fuel pump(between 3 and 10 psi one) and install a variable pressure regulator, set it at 4psi and drive the truck. still need more power move to 5psi, adjust untill your happy.

Steering loose


On these vehicles the main thing to look for when you have play in the steering is on the passenger side of the vehicle in front of the right front tire on the frame the idler arm.How to check and see if it is that jack up the right front(passenger)side tire and when it is off the ground put one hand on front of the tire and the other hand on the back of the tire and try to move it back and forth,if it moves a decent amount then look at the idler arm and move the tire back and forth again and if the idler arm moves up and down say about 1/2 and inch replace it and have the front end alignment done afterwards.
