Question about 1986 Dodge Lancer

1 Answer

We have a 1986 Dodge Lancer that runs fine when I first start it. As soon as it warms up, the motor bogs down. We have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, catalytic converter and put tranny fluid in it (although the transmission shifts fine). We were told that the modulator on the transmission may need to be replaced, but, as I stated, the tranny shifts just fine, not too rough and not too soft and the gears do not slip at all. It almost seems as though it is not getting enough air flow through the motor or the ballist resistor may be bad. Any suggestions?

I would check the engine timing and the ETC switch.

Take a look at the down shift cable and make sure its not broken especially were it connects to the throttle linkage.And maybe try cleaning the electrical plug that plugs into the trans.Its about a 7 to 9 wire plug.They tend to collect water and short the wiring out.

I was told to change my Transmission Control Module,located on the transmission . You can get it new for under $200 but, I was advised to get it from a junk yard it's alot cheaper and its easier. I hope this helps

It could be the Vehicle Velocity Sensor (VVS) or it could be the Transmission control module (TCM). Check all the wire harness, V.V.S and T.C.M. The best thing to do is to check the truck for any DTC code. Auto Zone scan free of charge and hope we can find out why the transmission is not working properly. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

Did you replace the fuel filter when you replaced the pump ?
Was it running rough before the pump was replaced.
Did you replace the cap and rotor too ?
"Sucking a ton of air" could be a vac leak, or the sound of the throttle open when the engine is bogging down.
Is the check engine light on when it is running ?

First check for any cracked pipes leading into the intake manifold If all OK (with no codes showing it probably is OK) try checking the fuel pressure regulator. If you smell fuel from the pressure regulator vacuum side arm (when the vacuum line has been disconnected) it needs to be replaced.

most likely a weak fuel pump or a clogged filter. Check fuel pressure with a gauge or as its bogging down spray brake cleaner in the Throttle Body. If this allows it to increase RPM then its the pump or filter.

That noisy pump bothers me, and that's why I question if it's not breaking down once it gets warm/hot, and starts feeding low fuel pressure. Personally, I'd confirm that first before beating my head against the wall, and finding out it was that all along.

I have a 1996 2.5 liter Dodge dakota that will turn over but not


im assuming youve done basic tune up of plugs, wires, air and fuel filters, oil, distributor if applicable (im guessing not but never owned a dodge)

if it bogs down/stalls at stops only when its hot, try a new egr valve. probably getting stuck open. if not that try heavier oil to see if its losing compression, just one step up. also,

if it runs ok after clearing the computer by disconnecting the battery for a while, probably a dying sensor (most likely o2)

if after clearing computer it still runs bad after warm up, see if it bogs down really bad when letting it warm up from cold without driving (just idle to make sure its not egr system). if it dies or sounds like its close to dead, then its probably something fuel related (clogged/faulty injector, worn fuel pump, bad pump relay)

hope it helps
