acceleration problems
Hello everyone, I am very excited to have found this site. Yes, I am a newbie, but a mopar nut.I am having a tuff time navigating this site,any tips will be very helpful.Now on a more serious note I need some direction.I am the proud owner of a 2nd. generation 2 wheel drive Red Dodge Ram Sport with the 5.2 Litre engine. It has a new engine control module,exhaust,cold air intake,ring and pinion gears,cat. converter,battery,for. and aft o2 censors and breaks.I purchased the ram from a one owner,(an older fellow who took very good care or it).When I start it,she fires right up,idles like a dream,no misses,spits or sputtering.When I put into gear, drive or reverse, she spits and sputters with serious attitude.I've owned her for the last eight years and have done all the labor myself.(except programming the ECM.Hopefully some of my new found friends can point me in the right direction.I'm loosin it:att:Badbonz
