Does it's job
By B250Guy on


1991 Dodge Ram Van B250 3dr Van


Was a delivery truck, now I use it to haul my race bike. 318ci is worn and gutless, giving 14mpg. 3spd auto with OD never wants to "kick down" unless you floor it. Odometer, fuel gauge, and oil pres have all malfunctioned. Found used cluster to replace them though. Even though it's weak and tired, it runs flawless, burning no oil, idles smooth, and climbs hills (slowly). Lots of wind noise from windows and poor fitting driver door seal. Zero rust on this desert van and passes California smog. Having to replace bushings lately, which is fair for the age. Too small mirrors make city driving difficult.

Best Features

This van has no features other than non-functioning A/C and 2 speaker AM/FM. The best part of a cargo van is carrying your gear safe from weather.

Worst Features

Door and window seals, gauges that work (especially the odo). Ditch the distributor on the 318 (more parts to change and the computer controls advance anyway). Also having the "maint reqd" light stay on until a dealer turns it off is lame. I pulled the bulb out (it's just a smog service reminder).
