Question about 1985 Dodge Ramcharger
Remove egr valve and try to start it, if it runs replace cat. converter
Posted on Sep 20, 2010
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.

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.
