The carburator needs to be retuned under a load to correct the problem. Take the truck back to the place were the carburator was worked on, and have them to check the carburator out for correct adjustments. Hope this will help you !!

I need a Sterring colum for my 1987 dodge ram 50, someone tried to steal it and busted the key itinial and I need the entire sterring colum.


You can order one through the dealership(pay a small fortune) or auto body shop. If your not worried about the color, call around to the junk yards, they may have one in a truck there. You can also check on-line at auto junk yards. cheaper than the shops, color is not a option there most times. hope this helps

1997 dodge ram 3500, it shudders in OD


Hey, I also have a 98 ram with the cummins and what you are talking about is when you are pullin hard in overdrive the trans is working to hard causing the shudder, when this happens back off the throttle and get back on the throttle to allow the trans to downshift. If you dont it will break the overdrive gear. There is nothing wrong with the trans it is just that it is shifting to early and bogging down causing the shudder.

Did dodge make a 429 ci engine? i ask because the sticker on the valve cover on my 1`990 ram van says 429. thank you


hmmm... Have never heard of Dodge having a 429.. Ford made a 429, Dodge has the 440 and the 426 hemi.... unless they changed the bore and stroke for some models... which I think unlikely...


hold on... rereading your post... the only motors ever available in the caravan:
  • 1984–1987 2.2 L K I4, 84 hp (63 kW)
  • 1984–1987 2.6 L Mitsubishi G54B I4, 114 hp (85 kW)
  • 1987½–1990 2.5 L K I4, 100 hp (75 kW)
  • 1987½–1989 3.0 L Mitsubishi 6G72 V6, 136 hp (101 kW)
  • 1989–1990 2.5 L Turbo I4150 horsepower (110 kW)
  • 1990 3.0 L Mitsubishi 6G72 V6, 141 hp (105 kW)
  • 1990 3.3 L EGA V6, 150 hp (110 kW)


  • if it happens to be a '91 they added the 3.8l

  • 1991–1995 2.5 L K I4, 100 hp (70 kW) and 135 lb·ft (183 N·m)
  • 1991–1995 3.0 L Mitsubishi 6G72 V6, 150 hp (112 kW) and 173 lb·ft (235 N·m)
  • 1991–1995 3.3 L EGA V6, 162 hp (121 kW) and 194 lb·ft (263 N·m).
  • 1994–1995 3.8 L EGH V6, 162 hp (121 kW) and 213 lb·ft (289 N·m).

    I have a 1987 Dodge Ram 50 sport 2.6 litre the head gasket is blown how do i get the timing chain off to replace the gasket


    You have to remove the oil pan - harmonic balancer - timing cover to replace timing chain... to replace cylinder head gasket and not the chain -- you need an assistant to hold the camshaft gear with chain on it. Suspending it with wire to keep the chain from moving the timing (do not let the chain relax as it will come off the crankshaft gear and change the timing)

    Dodge ram50 1992 swap 2,4L to 2,6L


    Greetings!

    Yes, the engine mounts and bell housings are the same.
    The swap should be straight forward, however be sure to swap all the vaccum controls and emission system from the 2.6L.

    Have fun!
    Cheers, Jay
