Sound like you need to check your wires that come from sensor, I beleave you will find a wire that is grounding out somewhere, Best of luck to you.

89 dodge d150 318 tbi turn key to on position gas pours out of injection and fills throttle body in seconds I'm wondering is this absolute proof of complete failure of fuel pressure regulator failure?


89 dodge TBI system - that is NOT proof of the Pressure Regulator failing.
The fuel system will pulse on when the key is turned on to charge the fuel rail for starting. The injector should not leak - probable injector failure (stuck open) - try disconnecting the wiring to the injector (to rule out computer controls) and see if it still leaks with just Key-On. If it still does you can also tap the throttle body case where the injector is - if it stops - definitely the injector (don't damage the throttle body - lightly tap )
You may want to retrieve fault codes before you try disconnecting things and creating new faults. If you don't have a code reader - try Key On - Off - On - Off - On (without cranking) and count the flashes of the engine lite - all two digit codes - usually starts with code 12 (battery disconnected recently) and ending with 55 (end of tests)

odd,usually if a dodge starts then stalls the ballast resistor is bad,just put a jumper wire across the 2 terminals(white cermic block on the firewall,2 wires) if it runs then replace the ballast only other thought is,have an ammeter? check the back of the gauge,sometimes they burn up and kill the whole system.
Don't quite understand why unplugging the Alt. would matter but check these 2 things anyway.

Check the TPS Sensor on throttle body (throttle position)

Also the Air Idle Control Solenoid at the base
of throttle body, on side

Spark plugs strangely make a difference on the dakota,
clean rotor & cap

There is no timing adjustment

Never move your distributor,it is for

Your idle air control valve may be sticking. recommend you remove the valve and also the hose from the throttle body. Clean the valve, idle air passsages, and the throttle body using carb cleaner. Hopefully this will restore proper operation.

1988 chev celebrity stalls when comming to a stop sign.


no timing belt on the particular vehicle. but yes probably something minor, check fuel pressure, fuel pressure regulator, MAF sensor and IAC motor. all these can cause intermitent stalls. The MAF is located somewhere between the air filter and the throttle body. it is a sensor that sometimes gets dirty with air particles and will affect fuel managment. the IAC motor is on the throttle body and if gets stuck with carbon will not be able to control idle. the fuel pressure regulator is on the fuel rail and if the vacuum line is filled with gas then the diaphram is bad. and the fuel pressure should be 35 to 50 PSI running.
