Intermittent problem with sudden loss of power

Page 1 of 2  
I am experiencing an intermittent problem with sudden loss of power and bogging down. with my 95' Ram 1500 (318 )sometimes at sustained freeway speeds engine suddenly loses power and runs terribly and will
run only with minimum throttle and with too much throttle will backfire and possibly die after I pull over and wait five to ten minutes engine will usually run perfectly again this problem can happen after five miles or five hundred in hot or cold weather. I do not smell any gas fumes In fact I first had this problem in Florida and it resolved itself then drove to California with no problem now problem is back I have replaced EGR and control solenoid (found it melted due to contact with exhaust system), cat converter, temp sender, and a few other sending units checked for exhaust obstructions. I also noticed that there seems to be a vacuum in the fuel tank when the problem occurs if I loosen fuel cap I hear air rushing in past the cap? the cap passed the cal smog test but I have replaced it with a new Stant replacement still get vacuum or possibly pressure but it sounds like a vacuum is this normal could a vacuum be forming in the tank and causing the fuel pump to be slowed or stopped? Maybe that would explain the intermittent problem at freeway speeds? And now just replaced Evap purge solenoid but problem remains there are no trouble codes being generated. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated since my girlfriend lives around 300 miles away and this could happen a couple times a trip! More: I have now changed out crank sensor, cam sensor, rerouted wires per tsb, new stock coil, changed out Bosch platinums with stock plugs, changed out gas cap, bought fuel pressure gauge pressure seems fine the problem with engine bogging down still happens after long drives at 65-70 mph I live in California and want to drive to New Orleans to help victims my prevous post have not gotten any replies please respond it you have any ideas.
Not sure if related but since I changed out gas cap seems like moisture actually water accumulates in cap? One of you guys must have an idea.

PS:
You may want to read this article before you go to New Orleans to help those "victims." A very good read. ___________________________________________________________________
By Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson Say a hurricane is about to destroy the city you live in. Two questions:
What would you do?
What would you do if you were black?
Sadly, the two questions don't have the same answer.
To the first: Most of us would take our families out of that city quickly to protect them from danger. Then, able-bodied men would return to help others in need, as wives and others cared for children, elderly, infirm and the like.
For better or worse, Hurricane Katrina has told us the answer to the second question. If you're black and a hurricane is about to destroy your city, then you'll probably wait for the government to save you.
This was not always the case. Prior to 40 years ago, such a pathetic performance by the black community in a time of crisis would have been inconceivable. The first response would have come from black men. They would take care of their families, bring them to safety, and then help the rest of the community. Then local government would come in.
No longer. When 75 percent of New Orleans residents had left the city, it was primarily immoral, welfare-pampered blacks that stayed behind and waited for the government to bail them out. This, as we know, did not turn out good results.
Enter Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan. Jackson and Farrakhan laid blame on "racist" President Bush. Farrakhan actually proposed the idea that the government blew up a levee so as to kill blacks and save whites. The two demanded massive governmental spending to rebuild New Orleans, above and beyond the federal government's proposed $60 billion. Not only that, these two were positioning themselves as the gatekeepers to supervise the dispersion of funds. Perfect: Two of the most dishonest elite blacks in America, "overseeing" billions of dollars. I wonder where that money will end up.
Of course, if these two were really serious about laying blame on government, they should blame the local one. Responsibility to perform - legally and practically - fell first on the mayor of New Orleans. We are now all familiar with Mayor Ray Nagin - the black Democrat who likes to yell at President Bush for failing to do Nagin's job. The facts, unfortunately, do not support Nagin's wailing. As the Washington Times puts it, "recent reports show [Nagin] failed to follow through on his own city's emergency-response plan, which acknowledged that thousands of the city's poorest residents would have no way to evacuate the city."
One wonders how there was "no way" for these people to evacuate the city. We have photographic evidence telling us otherwise. You've probably seen it by now - the photo showing 200 parked school buses, unused and underwater. How much planning does it require to put people on a bus and leave town, Mayor Nagin?
Instead of doing the obvious, Mayor Nagin (with no positive contribution from Democratic Gov. Kathleen Blanco, the other major leader vested with responsibility to address the hurricane disaster) loaded remaining New Orleans residents into the Superdome and the city's convention center. We know how that plan turned out.
About five years ago, in a debate before the National Association of Black Journalists, I stated that if whites were to just leave the United States and let blacks run the country, they would turn America into a ghetto within 10 years. The audience, shall we say, disagreed with me strongly. Now I have to disagree with me. I gave blacks too much credit. It took a mere three days for blacks to turn the Superdome and the convention center into ghettos, rampant with theft, rape and murder.
President Bush is not to blame for the rampant immorality of blacks. Had New Orleans' black community taken action, most would have been out of harm's way. But most were too lazy, immoral and trifling to do anything productive for themselves.
All Americans must tell blacks this truth. It was blacks' moral poverty - not their material poverty - that cost them dearly in New Orleans. Farrakhan, Jackson, and other race hustlers are to be repudiated - they will only perpetuate this problem by stirring up hatred and applauding moral corruption. New Orleans, to the extent it is to be rebuilt, should be remade into a dependency-free, morally strong city where corruption is opposed and success is applauded. Blacks are obligated to help themselves and not depend on the government to care for them. We are all obligated to tell them so.

Well I think it is another case political correctness gone too far when people suggests a black man is racist when writing a critique about his own people. Nobody said that about Bill Cosby when he basically said the same things about his own people.

What in the hell do you think racism is there genius?!?!?! It is not that he said something, it is what he said that makes him racist. If you think that this article is correct (and some of it is), please tell us all exactly where all of these poor black people were going to go and how they were going to get there since most of them were at the poverty level and had no cars?

Really???? Care to back that up?

People tend to have short memories. I do remember seeing about 255 unused school buses sitting in a parking lot a bit flooded out in which the city could have used to help those in need to get out. 66 People per bus that could have been 16,000 people per run. They had a few days for the arrvial of the hurricane.

Sure I can, but where you been hiding? This made big news.
Bill Cosby: Poor blacks can't speak English NAACP leaders stunned by remarks of prominent comedian
In the presence of NAACP President Kweisi Mfume and other African-American leaders, comedian Bill Cosby took aim at blacks who don't take responsibility for their economic status, blame police for incarcerations and teach their kids poor speaking habits. Cosby made his remarks at a Constitution Hall event in Washington Monday night commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Brown vs. Board of Education decision that paved the way for integrated schools, reported Richard Leiby in his Reliable Source column for the Washington Post.
Leiby said Cosby's remarks were met with "astonishment, laughter and applause."
When Cosby finally concluded, Leiby said, Mfume, Howard University President H. Patrick Swygert and NAACP legal defense fund head Theodore Shaw came to the podium looking "stone-faced."
Shaw told the crowd most people on welfare are not African American. He insisted many of the problems his organization addresses among blacks are not self-inflicted.
Cosby said, according to Leiby: "Ladies and gentlemen, the lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal. These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids - $500 sneakers for what? And won't spend $200 for 'Hooked on Phonics.'
He added: "They're standing on the corner and they can't speak English. I can't even talk the way these people talk: 'Why you ain't,' 'Where you is' ... And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk. ... Everybody knows it's important to speak English except these knuckleheads. ... You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth!"
The Post said Cosby also targeted imprisoned blacks.
"These are not political criminals," he said. "These are people going around stealing Coca-Cola. People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake and then we run out and we are outraged, [saying] 'The cops shouldn't have shot him.' What the hell was he doing with the pound cake in his hand?"

Maybe someone should have filled the gas tanks on the buses, handed the keys to the comunity leaders, and said.. "take the buses, save yourselves, cuz we're leaving without you!"
At least then, they would have had the OPTION TO LEAVE, like all the well-to-do's did.
anywhooo..... back to the topic of the thread, why did you post it?

Oh Bullshit TBone. Even you can't be that dumb. The article may or may not have been crap but black on black is not racism. If I called you a low life piece of white trash does that make me a racist against my own race. Of course it doesn't and you know it.

Really Jerry, show me that definition and don't worry, I'll wait. Just because you may agree with some or all of that article means nothing. The article clearly defines some bad points as attributes of the black race and that makes it racist by definition, no matter who wrote it.

Of course not because in that case, you are attacking me personally (imagine that), not just my race but if you were to say that all white people were trash then you would be making a racist comment and oh look, a racist comment against the whites by a white person. I think that before you attack my intelligence, you should get familiar with a few basic definitions.

================== I'm sorry, but you abandoned your thread 11 days ago and it was infiltrated and taken command of by local non-Judean zealots who have since restructured the, now non-existant, platform set forth by the OP. It is now my unfortunate duty to net-nanny you toward setting up a new thread, or either joining in and mixing with the zealots and becoming part of this new unified effort to dissimilate and propogate misinformation, diabolical ramifications of fact, and overall justification of lanquage skills through the use of usenet and all that intails.
or.......
you can persist in yer obstinance and "attempt" to carry this thread back on topic, in which place you may find that you will be required to participate in the repair of your vehical by turning wrenches and showing up for work more than once every eleven days.
if you choose the prior, welcome to our world.
if you choose the later, post the results of the first, and only, suggested repair technique given in this thread......and then we'll talk.
you did follow the advise given.......... didn't you?
? ?
no?
then what the fk. over?
why should we waste our time giving you more....... if you ain't even gonna attempt to help us!?!?!!
oh......
yer slow.
ok.
then I'm sorry fer insuating you were just another random drifter with no intent what-so-ever of attempting the suggestions for repairs given.
truely!
I'm sincere!
you believe me, don't you?
nah?
ok.
i can live with that too.

Do you hang out in that area? If not, then you really don't have a clue. While I'm sure that there are a few people that fit his description, saying that they all do because they are black is simply a racist comment, no matter how you try and spin it. But of course I forgot, no white people, especially in the south, mistreat or put down the blacks, do they. I guess the KKK is a New England thing, LOL!

Yeah it is a New England thing. If I recall correctly in the 60s when the US Supreme Court rules for busing black students into white schools, I believe it was the white Northerners who did the rioting over the decision, not the white south.
