All of Chilton's online content for the 1988 Dodge B250 is updated monthly, so you'll have the most recent information on hand for any Do-It-Yourself project. It backed out easily after pulling off the connecting breather tube. However, things worked out better than expected. I treated them with a propane torch for about 45 seconds and while they cooled, used a 6-point socket and a small ratchet. Financial Finale: After the the costs incurred above, I began to wonder what the vehicles actually cost me and if it's worth my time to fix them. Cranking the engine nothing comes out.
Turns out the new piece was incorrectly made with a hole too big so that the flat head screw secures nothing when installed it just sits in the cover hole. To avoid crashes in the first place, they went to bigger brakes, a better suspension, and stronger, stiffer body. Relay appears to work out of the van. May 2009 - Shift Lever: Three months later, and several thousand miles later, the van unexpectedly won't start again! At this time, a one-inch diameter front stabilizer bar was used with gas-charged shocks in front and back. On Sportsman and Tradesman vans, even the climate control panel was replaced with one taken from the car lines, with four fan speeds. We almost go stranded at a rest stop coming back from another state. Photography flash was not positioned right, so you can't really see them, but that's where they're at! No voltage output at pin 87 output but it also seems to float up to +V when a floating measurement is made; this is true even with fuel injectors and ignition coil disconnected no load.
Answered on Oct 24, 2013. Looks like it's time to paint the van, too. See the narrative underneath the first picture to understand what happened. I hope the nuts will not rust this time. The tongue weight was too heavy for my bathroom scale, so I made a little lever arm, measured the distance and calculated the weight of the tongue. But it's almost brand new.
This would happen even if you preventively did nothing. This voltage drops to about 9. Measuring directly from the tank hose, behavior was the same as measured at the carburetor. These vans were incredible in traffic as they could U-turn in the same space as your average modern mid-size sedan. Manuever the entire assembly out of the door.
On the right side, the bleeder valve broke off. The brown and pink wire disappear into a wiring bundle, and from there I have no clue where they go. These are in the diagram above, which corresponds to the one blade that is perpendicular to the others and the one opposite. It can't be the pressure regulator leaking fuel back to the tank or it would just keep doing it and never let the engine start. The step bumper is bolted to the vehicle with 4 horizontal bolts on the left and 4 horizontal bolts on the right side.
The little vacuum lines come in and connect on the bottom back left side of this picture. There was a little plastic box connected to it. It's embedded in the computer module. With the old regulator back in place, I experimented a bit with the fuel pump. Strangley, across the relay contacts always hover about 0 volts, cranking or not. Dual axle electric brakes worked great when I adjusted them to gently feel the braking when only the trailer brakes are applied. Unlike many scissor lift regulators, the 1989 B250 has only one arm that reaches to the window rail and it pivots against the motor assembly, which is held to the door with four rivets.
I wish the replacement gasket part part had been designed right. The two terminals are the primarly, and the large central wire is the high-voltage output compared to ground. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. When I removed the upper nut and grey wire, across the coil primaries measured about 3. However, you should connect up the motor connector and run the control arm almost to the end of the gear because the entire assembly fits in the door better that way. I pulled the fuel line off the carburetor body the lower line and monitored the pressure.
Light stayed off, and that doesn't make sense. I found two relay-box looking things bolted to the firewall. If it is lined up then you have another problem, likely related to overheating. Supply side of contact is at +V, and relay output pin 87 is +V. The changes to the front of the van also improved walk-through access and updated the styling. Dangling near the bracket was a terminated wire bundle, but when I looked closely, it was not terminated with tape and a plastic plug like other terminate wire bundles. Having occasionally used B-series vans for parts in junkyards, I will acknowledge that it's sometimes a bit tough to get some things out.
I had to drop the entire tank a second time and check connections. I think the coil is okay. The 1974 Maxivans 127 inch wheelbase only saw the first sliding door; and Dodge replaced the grille. In case your local salvage yard does not have the appropriate vehicle, you can also purchase new. One to the immediate side of the main computer box toward the driver side.
Dodge B250 Ram Van Wagon 5. Either one was too short, or one was too long. The only difficult situation was the powerful spring that gives some up-force to the window - which makes it more balanced for the motor to lift up or pull down. Now I need to go work on the pesky air conditioner compressor, which locked up a while ago. Maybe the sock filter in the gas tank is plugged. On an older van, after the cables have stretched, this may not perfectly match the dashboard indication. Output of relay contact compared to ground is ~ 0v when the car is off, +V when the ignition is on should be since relay is closed , and t hen ~0 v when cranking.
