This could be caused by a sticking choke in the carberettor. If it starts cold, it tells me that the choke is closed and allows for more fuel and less air to be introduced to help start the car and then once you go to accelerate, it floods the engine and wets the sparks plugs not allowing for restart. Remove the air cleaner and look down the top of the carberettor to verify the top valve closed. Start the car and go under the hood to accelerate the engine by gently pulling on the throttle linkage. Please be careful, this does have potential to "pop" so please DO NOT PUT YOUR FACE OVER THE CARB!! Will it idle? Let me know.

SOURCE: 1985 dodge ramcharger, carburetor issues

Sounds like a problem I had with my '85 Dodge D150 Ram Prospector. In my case, the automatic choke was broken and it was starved for air during acceleration because the choke was always closed. It ran fine at idle or very slow acceleration. I wired the choke open and it runs much better, although it is much more difficult to start as the fuel mix is lean due to the extra air. Once it gets warmed up, though, it runs fine. I hear that the barrel carb on mine often has problems.

I tried to start and all power goes out then I Disconnect positive and re connect there is power but it wont even click over and power goes out again


Your description does not rule out a bad battery. Make sure the cable connections are clean and connected correctly. Assuming this is all good check the voltage with a DC volt meter. A fully charged battery should test 12.85 Volts. If it is very near 12 or lower it is a week battery. With jumper cables or other means to get good voltage try and start it again. If is start you have a bad or week battery. If you get it to run check the voltage again while it is running. The meter should now read 13.5 -14.0 volts. If not above 13 volts it is not charging properly causing the battery to run down.....................

1985 Dodge Power Ram Prospector Pickup Started 2 Stall When Put In Reverse, Now It Stalls Even After Its Warmed Up


I was having the same problem with my 85 Ramcharger until my alternator went out. After I replaced it the stalling seemed to stop. Other things I noticed that resolved were dimming headlights and dash lights, the radio shutting off periodically when I drove and hard bumps causing the truck to stall. I hope this helps.
