Asked by Feb 06, 2016 at 11:33 AM about the 1996 Dodge Ram Van 3 Dr 2500 Cargo Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? I always check for codes even if the light isn't on, In the past, I've had inactive codes point me in the right direction. Problems at higher rpms, check for blockage of some kind, fuel--air--exhaust.
