Dodge wont stay runnng?

Recommended Posts

1999 Dodge Ram truck 1500 5.9 Magnum Gas Engine

Once and a while when starting, it wont stay running. Cant even back up to get on road. If you keep foot on gas you can keep it running. Usually a trip around the block with forced foot wiil bring it out of it. It does it a very random times:

- cold mornings

- warm mornings

- warmed and restarted

It does not race up and down, just starts and then dies. But as stated, with constant foot pressure, I can keep it running.

Thank You for your Ideas

Remove the IAC from the throttle body. Thoroughly clean the passages in the throttle body with car spray. Clean the pointless of the IAC. Inspect the pintle for wear, if any is evident replace it.

I should add when it does this you can remove the air tube from the throttle body. Look straight down towards the back of the throttle plate. You will see the air bypass channel and the pintle of the iac in that passage. Use a small screwdriver and gentle push the pintle back towards the body of the IAC. Then try restarting. If if fires up and stays running your on the right track. Fairly common on the older dodges.

Pulled out the valve and cleaned it and the surrounding area. Will see if it happens anytime soon again.

Thanks for info.

If your battery voltage drops below aprox. 9.6 volt the IAC memory will be cleared in the computer and will not know what position it is at. It takes alittle run time before it will relearn what its position is.

Maybe have you battery load tested also.

Put in a new Interstate battery last fall, should be good yet. If problem persists I'll check that.

Thanks

    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!
