My 1992 dodge ram b250 van is very hard to start up when it's cold & will not start at all if it's very cold... Any tips on how to prevent this from happening or what I can do to make it easier to...
I always find the subjects of some of my best videos while on the occasional afternoon walk, and this walk was no exception! The truck is a 1992 Dodge Ram 150 4x4 with the LE trim package. The owner of the truck was doing some home improvement work at a house down the street from my friend's house with the 1968 York air-conditioners, and he is the second owner of the truck. He purchased it used from a dealership in Delaware in 1998 with about 45,000 miles on the odometer. It is just one of several Dodge trucks he has owned over the years. The truck now has almost 209,000 miles on the original 318 cubic inch V8 engine, which makes about 235 horsepower and 280 ft-lbs of torque. Numerous little parts have been replaced on the truck, but the engine is largely original (the owner has documented every single part replaced). The only major thing on this truck that has been replaced is the transmission and the radiator, as well as the steering linkage had to be replaced/rebuilt, but that is really about it! The original radiator failed, and the owner replaced it with a higher-quality aftermarket radiator. You will hear the owner explain some of the stuff he fixed in true DIY style in the video, including the muffler, the steering, and some chassis parts. This guy is a true Dodge truck fanatic who in my opinion did a very good job making repairs to his truck. Also worth noting is the air-conditioning system in the truck. Like I said, it has only been recharged once, and every single part including major components like the compressor, condenser, etc. The A/C system was also never converted to R134a like many older vehicles. It still uses the venerable R-12 refrigerant, better known as Freon, and as you will see in the video, the air-conditioner works great! It was like 86 degrees Fahrenheit (about 30 degrees Celsius) outside when I made this video, and the air-conditioner was blowing ICE COLD! With the R134a system in my 2010 Toyota Tacoma, the A/C probably blows just as cold as R-12 when I am actually driving. However, when my Tacoma is just parked and idling, the air-conditioner does not blow as cold. The difference I noticed with the R-12 in this Dodge is that truck was sitting idle in a driveway in the hot sun for the entire video and it was blowing freezing the entire time!
