Customer Question
I have a 87...

I have a 87 dodge ramcharger.. It won't start we have put in a new carburetor fuel pump fuel filter spark plugs. Its turning over and gas is getting to the carb but it won't start.. We have check fuel line and that's great.. Any ideas as to what else to check or do?

Mechanic's Assistant: When did you last fill the tank? And do you smell gasoline around the engine?

A month ago and then it stopped. Smell gas at the carb

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ramcharger yourself? What have you tried so far?

We have done a new carb, fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs we also have a new alternator in was working fine.. Husband was driving it and then it stopped a and we couldn't get it to kick over

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
