Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 150k miles
I have a 1998 dodge ram 1500, 5.2 litre, automatic, 150k. The problem is under normal driving condition, the engine losses power and starts poping like a pocorn popper. It will countinue with no power and poping untill I accelerate and the tranny kicks down, all power is restored and noise is gone but will continue to re-occur. I checked the timing due to a TSB about the gear under the distributer wearing out, but it checked out fine. There are no codes stored. I almost think its a fuel delivery prob.
I read your other suggestions on popping and you guys stated fuel pump. I spent the $300 on a fuel pump modeule, changed the plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air cleaner and ignition coil and its still doing it. Any suggestions?
have the same problem?
