were is the fuel pump on a 87 dodge ram 150 318
should be a manual pump front passenger side of the motor
87 was still carborated mechanical pump passenger side low on the block and in front
could be timing, plugs, rotor, or carb too.
its not the fuel pump i just fixed that and it worked for a day the next day it started back again. it dos not start right away u get half a mile and it sounds like its running out of gas still backfiring but if u barely touch the gas it will slowly gain speed.
sounds like it could very easily be a carb issue. might need a rebuild/cleaning.
if it was the carb it would do it all the time right
Sounds like the gas flow is being restricted at some point. The carb isn't receiving enough gas when you accelerate but it does receive enough to keep it running at an idle. The problem could be clogged jets in the carb (one option).
it starts fine but it will start to idle up and down i cleaned it with a whole can of carb cleaner it run fine for a min or 2 than a rough idle. and how much dos it cost to rebuild a 2 barrel holly
a twobarrel carb kit if u do it your self only costs around $20
Check the restrictor on firewall. My trucks doing same thing and only person giving me a straight answer was a chick at autozone. If u find answers to problem it helps others when u give it on here.
My 87 power ram has the same problom i blow air in the fule line and it runs fine for a few days its defenetly a restriction
Fuel pump was the issue
87 Dodge Power Wagon The 360 and 318 are the same. The fuel pump is mechanical. Now, looking at the front of the truck, walk up look into the engine compartment, on the left side look down at the alternator, now look right underneath the alternator tucked away in side you'll see the fuel pump. You can almost not see it at all because that's why everybody asked where it is. And now have fun trying to see the pump, let alone the bolts that you half to take out! HINT:: Look for a mirror or better yet look between the brackets on top the alternator. Still can't see the bolts? Try looking through one eye? I know because I'm going through this as we speak!!
