My question: what can cause the car to do this?


I assume the car you are talking about is your 1968 Dodge Dart GTS with a 4-speed manual transmission. The engine has a special camshaft, Chrysler P/N 312044, which has a 60 degree overlap in the valve timing, since the engine is built to rev in excess of 6,000 RPM. The problem with your car is obviously a leaky accelerator pump. Why don't you get a car that (1) does not have to run on premium gas (because of its 10.5:1 compression ratio), and (2) uses fuel injectors instead of a wild 4 barrel carburetor made for 1/4 mile drag racing? I happen to know that that is the car you are referring to, because you did NOT say that it WASN'T!

When driving at a steady speed and then accelerating the van tends hesitates to down shift, unless I stomp on the pedal. If I do not stomp the pedal and let the car chug along IT SHAKES PRETTY HARD an


if you will not fix what is knowingly faulty then it becomes pointless is requesting answers because you already know the answer. Really it is so simple ---fix the fault.

Sudden release of power while driving at 65 miles


at that high a mileage it could be very likely the trans is starting to fail, have the computer tested for transmission trouble code's (trans is fully electronically shifted and controlled), also it is very unlikely the alignment check is related.

Isuzu trooper overcharging (1996)


Make sure the ground wire going out of the voltage regulator is grounded and the alternator ground is good.Check all ground wires to there are the ones that stop the over charging.Theres also is a small little capacitor that should bolt right next to the regulator that holds alot of the over charging..

Car loses power while driving and jerks while it's trying to accelerate but cannot,as I press pedall to the floor.Completely slows to a crawl on the freeway and almost stops but engine does not die.Then...


if you don't have a gas cap on the car or if it is on too loosely then that is a possibility. Only other thing I could think of would be water in your fuel. You may try a bottle of "heat" (I think that is how you spell it) at your local auto parts store and chunk it in the gas can. if there were any problems with water that should be the cure.
