A clogged fuel filter would cause this. If a replacement filter doesn't cure the problem, it would be a good idea to check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail. A bad fuel pump will cause the same symptom. Fuel pump failures are quite common in 1990s Dodge products.

I have a 1997 dodge avenger es 2.5 liter here's


Check the vacuum line on the fuel pressure regulator for any sign of gas being sucked into the line. A failed regulator will let extra gas get into the engine. If it's okay, have the fuel pressure checked. That's sure a lot of gas, way too much for the engine. Good luck.

A few things actually lol. How long since its last tune up? A dirty air filter, worn spark plugs and wires and cap and rotor can cause a poor idle and stalling. Not to mention a dirty fuel filter. The fuel filter is in the gas tank unfortunatlly :(
Try giving it a basic tune up " about 45 dollars" and see if that helps. Good luck.

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram hemi 1500 4x4. would not start.


I suspect the gas tank has some crud on the bottom that gets sucked in when level is very low and/or truck is parked on an incline.Suggest installing in-line fuel filter, let gas level get nearly empty and then check in-line filter. If there's junk in the filter, tank needs to be cleaned. Or just keep the tank a quarter full until it can be cleaned.

I have a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500. When I first get in the truck and drive it, the first few times I step on the brake pedal it locks up the front wheels. Can anyone tell me what is going on or what I need to...


Vehicles of today are no longerstart and go. The systems all need time to Ck, recheck and make adjustments. The AbS system does a self check the first few minutes after the vehicle is started. You should be able to hear all the clicking going on. So, consider that before taking it in to the dealer or a shop. For sure, make sure the rear brakes are adjusted properly. Good Luck

My 4.7 2002 dodge 1500 will not start


i purchased a new timing chain set and the cam pickup was bad on the new cam gear and we had a no start problem. i took the valve covers back off put the old gear on the cam and it started. BUT be careful if u do that you have to wedge the timing chains apart before you remove that gear so the hyd adjusters do not over expand. 4.7 dodge engines **** BIg they made them trying to save gas but the parts and repair over-ride any gas saving i got.

Sometime works other 50/50 won't idle


Honestly, I would say its your Mass airflow sensor. Sounds like your truck is sucking either not enough, or too much for the air/fuel mixture to compensate. Thats what it sounds like to me. I would replace that, or even clean it. If you take it out, and clean it up real good with some alcohol, you might catch a break as well. Hope all goes well.
