'96 Dodge B1500 runs 10 miles and bogs down and dies when warm, what is wrong?

Asked by Jan 29, 2016 at 07:00 PM about the 1996 Dodge Ram Van 3 Dr 1500 Cargo Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1996 Dodge ram full cargo B1500 with over 270K miles. It will run well for several miles and then start bogging, as if a potato is stuck in the tailpipe. Mechanics down at the shop have no idea what's wrong with it, for nothing shows up on their computer. I need this van for work. Help.
