I own a 1994 dodge van with the 318, automatic trans. when i bout it this
summer it ran great come winter though it just started to quit, just like
somebody turned the key off but it would usually start right back up and
go just fine for a while then would quit again. Replaced just about
everything my Hanes, Chiltons manual, and a few friends reccomended but
still to no avail. Have lived with it that way for a while, but now it is
starting not to start at all after it quits. Any help or advice would be
greatly appreciated, THANK YOU:
I had an old Cadillac that did the same thing except the cold had nothing to
do with it. (I think the cold is just a coincidence) On the fuel line
inside the gas tank there was a filter, almost like a sock over the end of
the fuel line. As vehicles get older, dirt, rust or whatever accumulates in
the gas tank. What happened with me was the filter was partially clogged and
would periodically suck up enough crap that was in the gas tank to make the
car seem like it ran out of gas. Sometimes it would run for a week and
sometimes it would die in a couple of minutes. It's not hard to replace just
make sure you run most of the gas out of the tank before beginning.
