Jul 31, 2009 (12:49 pm)
i have an 85 dodge ram with no spark. I was driving down the road when my truck acted like it was running out of fuel and died. my battery went out so i went and got a new one and put it in. I tried to start my truck and it wouldnt start. I got it towed home and replaced the coil and the pick up in the distributor and it is gapped right and still no spark but the coil gets so hot i cant touch it. i checked for power on the pos side of coil and i get full power but on the bottom post of the coil i get and real dim light. i removed the wire from the bottom post and checked it again [with the wire removed] i get full power. What is going on? please help!!!!!!

I have an overdrive problem with the above vehicle. In and out, in and out of overdrive. It's hooked up to a Cummings 5.9 if that helps. Someone mentioned a speed sensor but I have no idea where it is or how to test it. Can someone help me before my neck gets damaged?

4 speed o/d with 318 in 2500 van. sometimes ok at start up, other times have to put in 1st to take off. when in regular start and not working right it seems as if you put the brakes on as soon as put in gear. any ideas?

yep you will need to replace your alternator and voltage regulator. The second is probably causing the smell.

I have an 89 power ram with a 360 in it. I had a tune up done about a week ago, since then if I drive it at a high speed where I'm constant on the gas for a long period of time, then I come to a stop where I left of the gas then put my brake on, right before it comes to a completen stop it dies. It does great around town and I have no problems, its also running rich.. what could that be?

#25 of 25 85 ram d250 brake problems
Dec 19, 2010 (7:40 am)
I have an 85 dodge ram D250, and have some brake problems. I have replaced the master cylinder, proportioning valve, and all new lines. wheel cylinders, and calipers are fairly new too. The problem i'm having is i have brake pedal when the truck is off, but when I start it, it goes almost to the floor. Also, when I was bleeding the front brakes, the pedal went half way to the floor and stopped. The rears went right to the floor and work well. anyone have any advise.....
