Check for vacuum leaks. Cycle key, on, off, on, off, on, and see if check engine light flashes out codes. always 2 digit number with short pause in between. for example: 2 flashes, pause, 2 more flashes, is code 22. Write them down & get back to us. Code 55 (5 flashes, pause, 5 flashes, is end of message (codes).

I have a 1989 dodge ram w100 5.2 w/throttle body i will start fine and run for a few then quit

The first thing you need to do is check your fuel pressure,It should be 13.5-15.5 psi with engine running.If its not within these specs then replace the fuel pump.Sounds like your fuel pump is weak.

Starts good in the morning but then takes a few minutes to start after its been running for a while

1989 I had I carburator version, Depending on where your at it will be the choke mechanism of the carb, For cold start it need to be in the closed position then when it warms up it is lock out, now for a fuel injector type there is a throttle body sensor(TBT) is 2 wire thermistor. As throttle temperature increase,thermistor resistancedecreases, this controls fuel mixture based on coolant temp sensor

My 1991 dodge caravan is having issues. I thought it was in the fuel system so i changed my fuel filter,fuel pump relay and fuel pump. my van starts and runs but seems to stall out in 5 to 10 min. like its...

theres a few things to check for this problem. the throttle body needs a good cleaning, especially around throttle plate. I fixed a 95 caravan a while ago, and it would stall for no reason, cleaned out throttle body and now its fine. also a bad cam sensor will cause this as well as a bad idle air tcontrol sensor ( IAC ) try cleaning throttle body good. do this first ok ! do you have a check engine light on, if so have it scanned to find problem code. its very hard to tell by not being there but try above.

heres a few possibilitys. clean plate in throttle body. they get carbon around it and it will not run right. make sure air filter is clean, check fuel filter if need be. vacuum hoses for leaks. but clean throttle plate first. this may solve problem.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan just losses power when running

when was the last time it was tuned up?
you need to check the air filter, and check the throttle body for black soot deposits.when you are pushing on the gas pedal you are giving the engine more air not fuel,your vehicle is fuel injected ,

1989 jeep wrangler wont start it was running today for a while

Check the carb out sounds like its pushing to much fuel in butterfly could be stuck or choke on constant any warning lights on the dash i.e. engine managment light this could be the lambor sensor in the cat if this sensor has gone then it could be telling the fuel system to push more fuel in.

Engine cuts out

When it quits & won't restart, If you pull air intake hose of at throttle body & spray 2 or 3 seconds of WD-40 (like quick start) inside the throttle body with plate pushed open, then try to start & if it kicks over or fires up for a second or 2 then dies, you'll know it's a fuel related problem, then you can take a good look at rest of fuel system for problems like relay or pump.

It just might be that the choke is stuck open.

Chrysler 3.3 vin r v6 mini van, starts then dies

Charlie. You have replaced the ECM on your van?.
Kedwin,, Your problem is, the computer on that 3.3 L.
Need to be programed with the VIN nember of your car.
The Antitheft System will disable the injectors due a incorrect VIN, Bucause the body computer is not recieve the correct pasword between 5 seconds after start up.
YOU have 2 options. 1 get a ALOHA Smith. some of they have the computer required to program ECMs.

The other option is: Get a new ECM from the dealer, They will program if ask for that.

NOTE:::::: Other way is . Put the body control module with the computer from the same car.

OK... I hope this work for yours.
If NOT letme know I can look for more information.
Thank you.
