I have an 88 ram 50/factory banana/2 wheel drive...I need help on finding information about the timing belt/fuel filters....apparently these are the top reasons my truck won't start today.........just trying to edumacate myself on these common problems....the truck is mint, other than the mileage....everything appears to be functional on the checklist of goodies, other than it catching.....and starting....everything fires up properly.....but it's not catching.......and if I gas it at all ....it floods, and when it's not gassed, it burps.......and the choke seems to have a mind of it's own....forcing me to believe it is a timing issue...or fuel filter....any ideas are welcome...and anyone who has had a ram50 knows that anything is possible.........but I'm still clueless regardless....lol....HELP

the cars tires and wheels are just like music instrument they have resonant frequencies. so SPEED changes that. no man on earth blinded by internet can help you. we can guess. but why do that, you then spend a fortune on useless parts. ever heard of a mechanic, and ASE mech can fix this easy. BTW noise and vibrations is complex. on all machines. the factory FSM has a chapter on that , why not read that.>?
