Question about 1990 Dodge Ram 50

1 Answer

1990 Dodge Ram 50 not making power.

Truck will idle fine, it's right when it's put into drive it bogs down, when giving it gas to take off it is very hesitant. Not only will it not make power when stepping on the gas but there is a knocking noise. We replaced: Spark plugs, plug wires, air filter, rotor, rotor cap, fuel pump, fuel filter.

Timing! Timing chain? Check both!

    We checked the timing and timing chain since that was the first thing we figured what was wrong.

    You must then check the error codes after you try acellerating and hearing knocking. Also is the oil burning or thick?

sounds like the torque converter is not disengaging you might need a TCC switch (torque converter clutch)

SOURCE: I have 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 4X4 gas engine and it

The problem I had with my '89 Dakota was it would suddenly stop running while driving. After from 10 minutes to an hour I could start it up and drive on. It started happening more and more often. I was in a rush to get the truck running so I replaced both the computer and the timing module in the distributor to fix the problem. However, I suspect the real problem was the timing module was failing causing the engine timing to go out of spec and computer sensed it and shut down the ignition to safeguard the engine.

Good Luck, Bob

The carburator needs to be retuned under a load to correct the problem. Take the truck back to the place were the carburator was worked on, and have them to check the carburator out for correct adjustments. Hope this will help you !!

What shape is air filter & pcv valve in? That and run a good fuel system cleaner through it - there seems to be ALOT of questionable fuel going around these days. Am hearing it from all over.

Engine bogs down


Whatever your problem is, I would guess that it happened after you began to drive it. I would consider looking for a vacumn leak. Plus, it would be helpful to know how the carb change affected the problem, as it does seem like fuel.

There are inline fuel filters under neather the truck body that may cause a problem, as well.

But I still feel that based on the limited amount of information, I would look for a vacumn leak. For example, if it has power brakes, a leaking hydrobooster can leak vacumn and throw of your air/fuel ratio. Vacumn pressure at idle should be 14.2, and at a higher idle should drop to about 12 or 11 inches of vacumn.
