Hi, i have a 1986 dodge ram charger and it wont start? it will start if i try for awhile but then almost dies immediatly. ive replaced the fuel filter and it has gas. The battery is also fully charged
Is it a daily driver or has it sit unused for a while?
Its sat for awhile
Did you drain and clean the fuel tank before trying to get it back going?
No, but i was told it was cleaned when i bought it
Oh ok. Just a thought. Old gas can give you the same issues you are having. And mixing new gas in with old does not always help. Have you looked at the spark plugs? Have you looked at the dist. Cap and rotor button? With one sitting for a while moisture can build up in there causing corrosion. Just some things to look into.
do you happen too know where there located? not familiar with dodge engines, its a 316
Will see if I can get you some pictures?
