Default 1995 ram 1500 code 32 and 37

This is my first time asking for help in this section. Thanks for your help. I bought my new bride a 95 4x4 Ram 1500 shortbed RC so her dog does't ride in my truck. It was cheap. (1275.00) I have had other Chry products but this is my first Ram. I have replaced the entire dash assembly and pulled the carpet and seats for cleaning. ( it looked as if they were hauling coal in the cab ). It seems to idle ok but when backing up it has and engine missfire, also happens on moderate accel in forward. It has code 32 and 37 stored. ( I can't seem to find the code list for this year model on this forum, I'm sure its my fault ). The fuel pressure is steady at 40 psi but jumps up and down on the misfire. I had to repair the vac lines on the pass side under hood to make the a/c work but haven't found any vacuum leaks afterward. Any ideas ?

Make sure you read note #1 . A simple reset of the PCM may solve that code. But you have to actually look and see if you have a tranny temp sensor in the line.

Thank you . I will check to see if it has a sensor for trans temp. BTW there is no hitch on this truck if that matters and I've the battery disconnected and only driven this truck maybe a block since I bought it 1 month ago.

Yep, sure is. I suggest you get a Haynes manual AND download the appropriate one from the FAQ/DIY section. Both will help a lot. With this project and ones in the future.

Any thoughts to fuel pressure at 40 psi ?

You are on the low side. Should be about 49-50.

Sorry but, fuel pressure is lower for a 95. Doesn't really matter anyway. If it doesn't hold the pressure for a reasonable amount of time and has zero pressure in the AM, the regulator is bad(or there is leaking injectors, which can all can be checked with a pressure tester). And if the pickup screen is clogged on the bottom of the pump, the pump needs to come out anyway. And btw, the regulator doubles as a filter too.

I was thinking of installing a new fuel pump anyway. Are there any inexpensive ones that work like the one RockAuto has for $43.00 that work and last? ( it looks like just the pump not the whole module) I just today got the replacement dash in and installed a used factory radio/cd player. The truck has an infinity system and the unit I got from the pick-your-part was out of a car with an infinity system but only the little door speakers play. There is just barely any sound out of the other speakers. I put it in my 5th ave and it plays all speakers. ( the truck had a JVC radio in it when I got it wired into the factory harness. It had no face plate so I don't know how it worked. ) Also fixed the a/c today ! The wife is gonna be all over me when she gets home !

About the dash ; when I bought the truck the dash looked like someone had hidden bones in there and turned a pack of hungry dogs loose inside the cab. Not only was the top gone but the carrier as well had turned to brick-a-brack. There was no place to even bolt the radio. The radio that was there was hanging by wires and antenna cable. I didn't even know it had a cup holder until I got the replacement! Nothing in any salvage yard was much better, but I found one in the northwest that was perfect ! The yard sent pictures and not one crack. $250 plus $209 for shipping. That's alot !

When the dash came UPS , I opened the box and the dash had a big 12" crack across the top. I was crushed. The guys where it came from made it right .

Went to work on the truck project yesterday and it would not start , only click. Ok now a starter gets on the list. Wait, let's clean all wiring at the battery. Boom ! Starts every time now. Well , I went down to the local auto supply store to buy a fuel pump assembly and when I opened the box right on top it said 40 psi. I did not get it . The wife and I drove it for the first time later that afternoon. Starts well and the after about 4 miles it started running poorly and stalling. Sometimes when it starts it sounds like it is firing on the up stroke . I suspect crank position sensor. Also from prev disc still need to fix EGR code. ( though I did check to make sure vac was at EGR).

BTW I checked the trans cooler lines for a temp sensor for the code 37 and found none. There is a two wire connector at the back of the trans that is not connected to any thing, though. Thanks zman17 for the link and what is a CKT ?

CKT, cam sensor. And obviously you need to find out where that wire plugs in too. I believe 40 psi is right for a 95.

I got under the truck and found the crankposition sensor. Is it easier to get to if I remove the exhaust? Two things about the exhaust, it's a texas truck and someone has chopped the exhaust very short. ( about 4 feet long from manifold to tips out side just past muffler )

Most people will remove the crank sensor from above. It's a PITA , but better than opening up a can of worms by removing the exhaust.

Goodafternoon gents ! I just pulled the t-stat out of the wife's project truck because the engine was running to cold. ( waiting on my ordered camshaft poition sensor ) Low and behold there is no t-stat. Is there a pic on here as to which way the t-stat goes in ?
