Try checking your gas filter, you can clean it by taking it out and blowing the opposite side with a compressor hose. You will see all the dirt from your tank coming out. After thsoi you can put it back and it will work ok. If you want to be on the safe side, buy a new fuel filter and install it, they are not too expensives.

Dodge 3500 w Cummins,Does not get hot when towing or going down the road. Water temp goes up when moving in slow traffic or stopped, idleing, AC stops Don't think clutch fan is locking in

Hi Claire:
I think I would tend to agree with you.
Seems that the logical thing to do would be to get the problem checked before any engine damage happens.

My 98 astro van starts cutting out while driving down the road. if i lay on the gas it stops until i get up to 58 mph then starts again. if i dont have enough road to gas it it will do it continue to cut...

do you have a check engine light on? I'm guessing you do and if you have the code read you will find a crank/cam sensor is probably bad. some parts stores will read a code for free

2004 seems to loose fuel pressure periodically while driving down the road

i have a supercharger in mine and if i run less than superios gas it will do this as well, good bet use shell premium gas and that should stop if it doesnt try replacing your fuel filter its just under the body of the car at the front edge of the driver side door :)

Sounds like you got some bad gas. I would either try an additive to remove water and some octane boost. If that doesn't work you will need to drain the tank. This has been a real problem with the price of gas going up. Some stations in my area have been shut down for putting water in the gas. If it was running fine before you got gas, then more than likely this is your problem.

Rtae this as a Fixya if this solves your problem. Ask more questions if you need to.
