My 1987 Dodge Aries will run fine when cold, but if it is warmed up it will not go above 35 mph without jerking and sputtering.  What do I do?

I wish I could help, but my 1987 horizon is doing the very same thing. It is ridiculous.

Turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, on then watch the POWER LOSS  light.

Count the number of times it flashes at you.

Look for a 2 digit number consisting 1 to 5 flashes for each digit separated by a pause between digits and additional trouble codes.

55 means the computer is picking up nothing wrong.  Any other number will lead you to the area of the problem.

I have the code book if you give me the numbers.

You have a heated oxygen (o2) sensor. I predict that if you run the turn the engine key 3 times diagnostic you will get a code of 51 or 52. Your o2 sensor is running a lean fuel mixture. But you can't tell when the car is cold because it will only work once it is heated up and it will usually start sputtering around 40mph. 99.9% guaranteed this is your problem. Just make sure to disconnect your + battery cable before installing. It is your o2 sensor...

I can start my car for a hour then is starts running in and out like there's not enough gas getting in somehow. Then I turn the car off and if I put my foot on the gas the car cuts out there and now. sometimes the car turns off completely by itself after I have been driving it for awhile. computer and all. Its no problem to start after it stalls. I drive a dodge aries 87 2.2 codes are all fine.

I have a problem with my 1987 Dodge Aries LE Wagon. When I try and start I'm not getting the engine to turn over ie.. No Combustion. I did your error code for this and it came out with a 27 Logic Module Fuel Circuit. So it basically is telling me that something is wrong with the Fuel Delivery correct? So Pump or Fuel Filter. Pump is failing or Fuel Filter is clogged. Am I right at guessing the problem? Thanks

The answer to Lisa problem is in the computer circuit board.The circuit board is next to the batterie in a black box connected to a ribbed thingo

Try finding the button-shaped silver colored transistor. Check the number and get a new transistor at a electronics shop and replace the part, mine had Malaysia 2N-3055 on it. Mine worked fine after that

My sisters car is having the same problem - It is giving me the code 13 (MAP sensor pneumatic circuit) and code 14 (MAP sensor electrical circuit). Anybody know what this actually does and what I should do to get it fixed...does it just need a new sensor to fix both problems or wiring too. Thanks for the help!
