1985 Dodge Power Ram Prospector Pickup Started 2 Stall When Put In Reverse, Now It Stalls Even After Its Warmed Up


I was having the same problem with my 85 Ramcharger until my alternator went out. After I replaced it the stalling seemed to stop. Other things I noticed that resolved were dimming headlights and dash lights, the radio shutting off periodically when I drove and hard bumps causing the truck to stall. I hope this helps.

1992 buick century(26,500 original miles)engine shuts down but starts up, no problem Any ideas as to what might be causing this?


As this vehicle is obviously driven around 1,500 miles per year, you may have moisture in the tank from it sitting for long periods of time with a half empty tank of fuel. Start by changing the fuel filter. Purchase a can of Seafoam Motor Tune and pour 1 can in a full tank of fuel. This is an excellent fuel stabilizer, moisture remover, and fuel system cleaner. After one tank of fuel if you see no improvement then look for another problem.

My 1985 Dodge Caravan stalls and cuts off


Needs new PCM "Brain"
You can buy a refurbished one.
Google Refurbished PCM and look for company located in Florida -- this was the problem I had with 99 Durango and the fix was easy and cheap < $300.00. I found my answer at AutoBeef.com after someone left me this clue -- I'm so glad to know this!!

93 s10 2.8 wants to stall out after restart


You probably have a clogged fuel filter. There should be an inline fuel filter between the gas tank and motor, replace that and your good to go. I have the same problem with my c10 pick up.

Stalls out about every 10 miles or so,let sit bout 5min,restarts


have you changed the plugs and leads, if you don't know the last time it was started there is a few things you need to take into account, engine oil and spark plugs fuel filter even the fuel in the tank empty and replace, coil and the points ( if upgraded there is no coil and points as been converted) you would also need to clean out the carburetor as old fuel drying can block or limit fuel entering the engine. change air filter. even standing an engine for a year or 2 these parts can degrade as they have not been used. also change the water and flush the system and refill with coolant/antifreeze.

the white smoke is oil smoke,check your valve stem seals,if they are bad it will smoke till it burns the oil that leaked by when it was sitting.as far as it stalling in the morning check your choke it may need adjusting.
