I have a 1997 Ram 1500 with the 5.2 (318) tbi with just under 206xxx. It runs perfectly when cold but bad once its all the way warmed up. I drive about 15 miles to school each day and usually when I get to school, it runs very rough. My check engine light came on and only missfire codes showed up. It doesn't move unless I rapidly tap the gas, and it only creeps along when I do this. Also, when its cold and before it starts running like this, it feels very underpowered. I have to step on the gas

My 02 Saturn Sl2 doesn't like to start sometimes if I let the gas get below a quarter tank and then fill it up. I know it's a fuel problem, I changed the filter and pump and cleaned the injectors. The only thing I can think of is that there is rust or dirt or something in the gas tank and when the gas gets low it is sucked up and stops the car from getting fuel. Usually after a few minutes and a few times starting the car and revving it works fine. My question is how much would it cost to pull t

Hi, I hope you can advise me. My 2002 grand caravan has fuel issues . After I fill up with gas and then drive, the fuel gauge doesn't start to move down until I have driven about about-80 miles, then starts to drop. If the gauge shows that I have 1/2 tank of gas, I really don't have that much. I have to look at the odometer to see when I have to really get gas. the digital reading on the panel above the rear view mirror is in sinc with it (it reads that I have 347 miles worth of gas in the tank
