Q: Truck is slow and sluggish to start and will only run a few minutes before shutting off and hisses when it does

asked by on

I recently had to replace the serpentine belt because it jumped off. I didn't drive the truck more than a minute or two before i realized it. After replacing the belt now the truck is slow and sluggish to start and cuts off after a few mins while idling or when driving(giving it gas). When it shuts off a loud hissing sound like air escaping comes from the back of the engine. It was fine age considered before replacing the belt. I know it isn't the alternator because it cuts off when hooked to another car using jumper cables. I've been told by shade tree mechanics it is the fuel pump. I unfortunately have no knowledge of vehicle mechanics. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello there, there is a variety of faults that could cause your 1996 Dodge Ram to shut off after warming up. If the belt jumped off than there is likely other faults that caused this. This could be from many faults such as the alternator, water pump, idler, power steering pump, or tensioner. If nothing on the belt side is faulty then there are other potential issues such as the spark plugs, coil pack, fuel pump, wiring harness, vacuum leak, or exhaust leak. A qualified technician from YourMechanic will be able to diagnose your stalling issues and make any repairs required.

Q: transmission shifting harsh and/or delayed

The rpm's "skyrocket" is normally an indication of substantial clutch wear within the transmission. Considering the 313,000 miles, this is most likely the case. If the fluid & filter replacement didn't make any change in performance, you should take...

Q: Truck is running good, but sometimes it will act like it's flooding out. It will sometimes stall when stopped unless I pump the gas quickly

Hi there. Your truck is from the 1999 model year so it is fully OBD-II compliant. That means that the computer "runs" the show and the only way the car can be tuned is if the oxygen sensors are operating...
