have a 1984 dodge ram it starts every time but when i go to put it in drive it cuts off and dies on me
Is it only when it is warm? Might be the transmission torque convertor locking up at idle. A faulty trans lock solenoid will do this. Does it do it in reverse as well? But are it could be the lower idle on your car, then you stall? How are the plugs and wires? Cap and rotor, vacuum lines? Filters?
the cap and rotor are new and the apark plug wires too vacumm lines are all fine trans is newly rewley rebuilt i went to touch the distributor cap wen it was running to see if the wires were loose i got shockd did the spray mist test on the wires lots of ark around the distributor could that be it
Seat the plug wire connectors on the cap securely, maybe you don't have them pushed down all the way. What brand wires? You shouldn't get shocked or have arcing.
they are some cheap brand i pushed them dowm and stil they are loose should i get a better set of wires if so wat brand do u recommend the closest store here is autozone
