Top 20 1987 Dodge Ram Maxivan - Page 4 Questions & Answers

I'm in the UK ..if by freeze plugs you mean core plugs (as they're known in the UK) it's relatively straightforward.

Locate the plug(s) and use a thin chisel or flat bladed screwdriver - punch through the core plug and lever it out.

Clean around the area where the new core plug will go, put a smear of sealant around the rim of the core plug and where it will fit.

Push the core plug into place by hand and then use a hammer to give it a hard tap in the centre. This will 'spread' the core plug to ensure a tight fit.

The link below is Ebay (UK). It is included just to ensure that freezer plugs and core plugs are the same... Don't forget the smear of sealant...

I would say it's a pretty sure bet that you somehow got the valve timing wrong when you installed the new chain. I assume that you had a good service manual to take you through the exact installation procedure - if not, you should. Its just one of those things that is very easy for a first timer to screw up and its one of those procedures that you always want to double and triple check before you put everything back together.
Of course if you have a distributorless ignition system, like most modern cars and trucks, then I suppose you also could have damaged a crank angle sensor or just forgotten to plug it back in. If thats the case then the ECU will through out a code though and that is easy enough to check. I assume you have a code reader of some kind.

I think this is a "fly-by wire" system. Many of these of all makes and models have had problems with bad throttle body issues and also throttle pedal faults. The throttle pedal problems are so bad Lokar aftermarket products has come up with an improved replacement part.
