Does the oil pressure drop before or after it begins to stall? I don't remember if the '85 had a low oil pressure cut off switch. I know later ones did. If you try to restart it, what happens? How many miles on the engine? How is your oil pressure when running?Doupe13 said:I have a 1985 dodge ramcharger with a 318. It runs great until motor gets warm. The oil pressure drops and it has to cool off before can get it going again. Any ideas?
Yep, choke is the first thing I would check. I like to hook a vacuum gauge to an engine to keep an eye on it. Finding a dash mount is getting hard as they are now boost/vacuum gauges. A healthy engine ought to pull 15-18 inches of vacuum at idle.dodge82273 said:choke problem
