1988 Dodge B250 - Page 5 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

To be honest if your not familiar with transmissions, (especially automatics), your safest method is to pay a specialist to look at it. Transmissions are a seriously evil can of worms if you don't know what your doing!
Does it feel like it's dropping into gear and trying or is it just 'dead'? This could be anything from a faulty transmission sensor to something much more serious.
Did you change the fluid and filter in the transmission? That can go bad just like engine oil does.

This message means that something has changed; for instance, you may have replaced the fuses. There is an easy fix - drive the car a bit faster than 30 mph, and automatically it will begin diagnostics and register the change. Hopefully, your radio will then work fine.

Assuming the fuel tank is breathing ok and there isn't a suction preventing the full flow of fuel, the tank is clean inside without water or sediment and the filters are clean, I only have one thought about your problem.

The fuel tank and the fuel in it is an essential part of the cooling system - the fuel return line carries excess heat from the fuel system back to the tank to be dispersed. A general rule is don't run less than a quarter full except on very short journeys or excessive wear will take place on highly stressed fuel system components.
This is more important with some designs than others and as many manufacturers utilising common rail diesel systems now fit fuel coolers it obvious they believe cool fuel is important.

This becomes more important when the fuel is a blend of diesel and bio-diesel, known to be a source of problems with the tight tolerances used in electric diesel injectors.

If your truck doesn't already have a fuel cooler I suggest you fit one.

The wiring of an ignition coil is fairly straightforward as there is only two terminals and regardless of whether there is an electronic distributor or the old fashioned contact breakers, in the basic 12 volt ignition system the wire from the ignition switch is connected to the + or Batt terminal of the coil and the single wire from the distributor connected to the - or CB terminal.

That system became quite rare over time as the ballasted system performed much better for little more cost. The primary resistance of the 12 volt coil is around 3 ohms and the ballast type around 1.5 ohms. It is important the correct coil is used.
You mentioned resistor so it is reasonable to assume it is a ballasted system. In this system one of three types of resistor is used - while many used a length of resistance wire integrated into the wiring harness the AC Delco system used a carbon "pill" type resistor mounted directly on the + coil terminal.
The third type is probably the best and is a ceramic unit with resistance wire inside, usually bracketed on the coil bracket or nearby.

The ballasted system uses a low resistance coil. One end of the resistor is supplied from the ignition switch and the other end is connected to the coil + terminal. There is a third wire directly from the starter solenoid also connected to the + terminal so when the ignition key is turned to crank the engine, battery voltage is supplied to the coil bypassing the resistor and producing a much more powerful spark making starting easier.

By 1986 many vehicles had begun to use either integrated distributors (with the amplifier inside) or a discrete amplifier mounted near the coil. The connections to these is fairly intuitive as multiway connectors take care of most of the wiring though the coil wiring remained basically the same on the + side.

Most motor factors supply fuel injection parts these days or the dealer will be happy to supply you, as would the many specialist repairers...

With electrical gremlins like that i would suspect a problem with the TIPM - totally integrated power module . Chrysler , dodge ,Jeep have known electrical problems with TIPM . Chrysler TIPM failures result in a variety of -related issues in multiple vehicle safety components, many of which have the potential for destructive results. The TIPM consists of a computer, electric relays, and fuses, and is responsible for distributing power throughout the entire vehicle. It's part of the under hood fuse relay box . http://www.chryslerproblems.com/tipm/ You should call the dealer ,could be under warranty .

Not starting but does sometimes after the battery has been disconnected does indicate the immobiliser has developed (partial) amnesia and isn't recognising the transponder code. Not an uncommon fault and extremely inconvenient as it can't be bypassed or defeated and a proper repair will be needed - sometimes costing more than the vehicle is worth.

I suggest you ask at the dealer and then shop around for competing prices, maybe at a local auto locksmith...
