The easiest way is to start it up and remove the positive battery cable if the motor dies its your alternator. IMPORTANT RECONNECT THE CABLE WITH THE MOTOR OFF

No power on hills and high gas consumption . Dodge 318, 1988.


Happened to me. You need an injector for the tbi. one is bad the other is working which means the motor is only getting half the fuel it needs. it will still run poorly on one injector but when you try to go uphill it will have no power. These are getting very hard to find took me a week to find one several states away. Good luck!

Tbi flooding with gas,fuel pressure regulator replaced,fuel pump replaced,ran good in yard,took on 8 mile trip,truck stalled gas coming out of tbi like water boiling in a pot! maybe map sensor since it...


From your description it sounds like your ECU is believing you are at Wide Open Throttle (WOT) when conditions are to the contrary.

MAP sensor is a good place to start, but their failure rate is seldom, Id be more apt to look at the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS), and while you are at it take a look at the throttle stop and AIS motor/sensor too.

When you open and close the throttle from the throttle body is there hesitation, does it open/close all the way, etc? If you answered "yes" to any of those, look at your throttle stop and kick down (if automatic)

I'd Check the injector too while I'm at it. Does it pulse constantly? There may be a ground issue. or a problem with the ECU.

Another place to look: On the smaller engines with TBIs the male connector cable likes to rock in out of the receptacle. make sure it's tight.

Hope this helps

88 dodge ram charger 5.2 ltr engine....intermittant spark


I have a 1988 dodge ram charger with a 318 motor with throttle body. It runs really good when I start it up and drive it for about a half of an hour.
But after that when I step on the throttle a little bit, it hesitates. If I let off a little bit, it will go or if I really step on it, it will go also, but if I just hold it there, it really hesitates If I stop, the idle jumps up and down so much it causes itself to stall. It seems to only do this at low RPM's. If the RPM's are higher it's fine

Fuel not getting to carborator.


The filter is external. Located on the passenger side frame rail, about 4-5 ft from the tank. round, metal (or if previously replaced-- might be plastic). Are you sure you have a carb? 1988 models were throttle body type fuel injection. If it is TBI, you may not be getting power to the internal fuel pump. Are you seeing a fault code (the check engine light flashing)?
