    Explain a bit about the no start condition (does the starter turn, or not? does the engine turn over?)

I had a similar problem ... It was my Low Idle needed adjusting. Hard time starting and would just die when I let off the pedal. The vibration form the motor wears down the flat bar that pushes to increase the idle speed. I know it sounds simple but it ran me around for a couple weeks. Old School Dodge Mechanic didnt even charge me to set it.

With your Auto Trans in gear and AC on you should be at 750-800 RPM.

Grab a manual like Haynes it shows you how in there and they are handy to have around.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Dodges have a gear reduction in the starter, usually. It could be wearing out. Have it checked out at a rebuild shop.

Truck broke down no fire.. replaced coil, ing mod,cap rotor.. got fire truck runs... truck down again no fire


I recently had a similar problem. I drive a 94 ram 1500 with the 3.9 6 cylinder. When I replaced the coil it started right up but then cut out and wouldn't start. So I wiggled the wire that plugs into the coil and tried to start it and it fired up again and the next day it wouldn't start. My problem was were the wires connected to the plug came loss. I went to the junk yard found any ram truck from 94 to 01 with either gas engine 3.9-5.2-5.9 and cut the plug off with decent amount of wire and installed it on mine and problem was solved. I also had a catalytic converter problem about 3 months after that was similar but it would start right up and run in neutral fine but when it gear it would bog down and eventually stall. Good luck.

My 1993 dodge ram B250 wagon is showing signs of a bad fuel pump but mechanic says fuel pump is fine. Wants me to buy a new PCM (which we just did a month ago for a previous problem). The van was running...


one thing to look for is your gas gauge. if it doesnt read or your wagon constantly stops then i would go with the fuel pump. replace the pump and replace the fuel line any water in that line would be bad.

Car will start but sometime when driving it cuts off on me . sometime if I park it and come back it wont start again. I'll have it towed and then when it gets home it will start. what could it be the car...


You took it to a repair shop

They told you the diagnostic connector
wouldn't comunicate with their scan tool

Why do you have the vehicle back?

Why is the repair shop not resolving the
OBD Communication issue?

Common Sense---if you want it fixed,
you have to start somewhere & stay with it

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram 1500, 5.9L, Automatic Transmission, 171,000 miles. Vehicle will stop running, just shut off, after about 10 minutes of driving. Then after 5 minutes of waiting it will start again...


the first suspect is the igniton switch. when this happens, take the ign key and just barlely turn it, either way, not enough to go off/on just a little tweak, it the lights come back on or flicker, that ign switch will need replacement.

sounds like you should start by dropping the pan and changing the filter, put cheap fluid in it or reuse the old fluid if its not too bad bring it to a shop and have a transmission flush performed with a good flush machine your valve body is sticking and this should clear things up please rate -jeff
