It sounds like your ignition coil is overheating. Once it cools down it will fire properly until it gets hot again. Replace the ignition coil and you should be all set.

check the fuses under the hood

1994 Dodge Ram | Answered on Jul 16, 2011

I would start with the basic's. Check and make sure good connection at both terminals. Make sure battery is fully charged. Make sure all ground wire's from negative terminal to truck frame are snug. Recently had this same problem a week ago on friends truck it was also a 94 ram. It was just a ground wire from battery to frame. After that check the fuses and relays. Good Luck.

Is the check engine light ON? Have you checked for any codes?

1994 Dodge Ram | Answered on May 29, 2011

I do believe that your truck may give you trouble codes if you turn the key on and of several times in a row. The Error codes will come up on the dash (I think where the odometer is if its digital.) so you can research the problem. That truck should have an OBDII so the codes for emissions problems are suppposed to be the same for all cars. If its a problem otherwise then you would have to look up the specific model codes for a 94 Dodge Ram.

Sounds like an electrical short of some kind.....will need to have it looked at by an electrician.

Take a look at the pulleys and inspect them for paint wear. Check to see if the paint is worn off the pulley where a belt should appear that it USED to run. If there happens to be wear on the tensioner pulley (the one with the spring) and the belt is riding in a different place it may be worn. The second one I'd check is the idler pulley. Remove the belt and spin it backwards and feel for resistance. If I've helped, please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial. Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi, Please check your ignition ( high tension side). You may have weak coil, dirty terminals. The best coil will produce blue sparks. Check also your plugs for aging and dirty.

Hi, Hope I can help you.
I do not know how you have checked for spark, but lets start from the beginning.
Lets start with an ignition systems check.
1. I want you to remove the high voltage coil wire. ( That's the wire in the center of the distributor cap.) Using a good pair of insulated pliers. I want you to hold it about 1/4 inch from a good engine ground. Now you will need a bit of help from a partner. Get them to turn the key and crank the engine. You should see a bright blue and well defined spark. Ok, If you have spark I want you to slowly move the coil wire away from the engine ground. As you do this I want you to pay attention to the coil tower. (The coil tower is where the other end of the coil wire is attached.) What your looking for is arcing and sparking at the coil tower. If this happens then you need to replace the coil with a new one. If this does not happen then your coil is working fine, and we will have to move on.
Note if you do not get spark from the coil wire replace the coil.

2. Ok if you have spark now we have find out if the spark is making it to the spark plugs. How are we going to do this? By checking the rotor, distributor cap, spark plug wires and spark plugs.First lets remove the distributor cap. This will allow use to inspected the rotor and the distributor cap. What your looking for is, cracks, carbon tracks and wear at the tip of the rotor. On the distributor ,look inside the cap for cracks, carbon tracks and wear on the terminals. If you find any of this replace the distributor cap and rotor. ( Note if you have any doubt of the condition of the rotor or the cap replace them.) Next lets check your spark plug wires. Lets pull off one of the spark plug wires from the spark plug side. Now inspect the wire connection for a white crusty powder. If you find crust replace your wires. Now you should check all of them the same way, but if even one has corrosion replace them all. You are going to have to inspect the wire its self . Going down the whole length of the wire. Holes cracks burn Marks and other damage. Once again if you find any damage replace them all.
I hope this will help you and good luck to all the read this FixYa

The transmission was slipping for some period of time
You were unaware of it

Now that you changed the fluid,the new
fluid only made it slip worse

I only tell you this, because I once owned a
trans repair business

You didn't do anything wrong,you just didn't
know you has issues

The trans will have to come out and be
completely rebuilt

It sounds like you may have a problem with your distributor.
