Thanks guys for not flaming me on the 5.3 typo. Someone on my local board was quick to point out that a 318 is a 5.2 not a 5.3. Ok, found a link ( http://www.dodgeram.org/tech/gas/Trouble/pcm_fault_code.htm ). Appears this 95 was delivered before the OBD II universal codes mandated in 1996. Lucky for me, the link pointed out how to read your own codes by turning the ignition on, off, on, off, on and counting the blinks on the check engine light. Got 2 codes. Now, what do they mean? 31: EVAP Solenoid Circuit - Short or open in the EVAP solenoid circuit. Check for loose, broken, or shorted wire in the charcoal canister purge solenoid wiring and connectors. 37: Torque converter clutch solenoid CKT or Trans temp sensor too high or low - Open or short in CKT wiring or connectors. Voltage out of range at transmission temperature sensor input. NOTE from the 1995 TRUCK (Ram) manuals: the trailer towing package includes a transmission coolant temp sensor while the standard package doesn't. The fault code detection system is probably the same for both models. This could cause the low (no) voltage indication....no sensor to send any voltage.How would I go about checking these 2 issues? How do I know if this truck has the trailer towing package? Are either of these issues a huge problem that need attention immediately? Nor-Call Zukini, I know you work for a dealer and I don't want to put you on the spot but if there is any info you could pass my way, I would greatly appreciate it. I just don't have the time or money for the dealer to work on this. The shops here are closed on weekends.
