SOURCE: 1998 dodge ram error code 1494 check engine light

Check all tubing and junctions for leaks in the fuel evaporation control system. The ECU has detected an issue with intake manifold pressure and is indicating that fuel vapour recovery system is perhaps to blame. Sometimes this can be connected to a fault in the manifold differential pressure circuit which lies on the vacuum line leading to the EGR valve. Also quickly check that the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve is OK by connecting and reconnecting its vacuum line and listening to engine note changes. No engine note change indicates the EGR is probably jammed shut with exhaust crud and needs a general clean up. Sometime these codes detect the symptom and not the cause so you just have to work your way back and eliminate what it might be.

Small leak in evaporative emissions system. Basically takes fuel vapors and recirculates them back to engine to be burned rather than vented into the atmosphere.One common cause of light on dash is faulty/dirty gas cap seal. Did you add fuel just before light came on? Otherwise a small leak at a hose etc., in system, as well as faulty purge system may also cause it.

Stalling issue


check for vacuum hose leak, listen for hissing sound a can a carb spray may assist you in finding this by spraying the hoses and watch for change in idle, this may not show a code if it not a constant problem. under load its ok when it tries to idle the vacuum leak will stall the motor..
