Your truck is hesitating, stalling, idling roughly, idling too fast, or flooding, and you are unsure as to why. A Dodge 318 carburetor can cause all of these symptoms if it is going bad. First produced in the late 1960s, the Dodge 318 motor is a popular one, with a reputation for being tough and durable. A bad carburetor results in poor fuel economy, due to being responsible for several key functions, including controlling the speed of the engine and regulating the fuel and air ratio in the engine. Since the carburetor is so important for the optimal running of the vehicle, as soon as you notice symptoms, it is important to take care of it right away because the problem can get worse if ignored. Make sure that you match the carburetor to the model and year of the Dodge that you have so that it fits and functions properly. Find the Dodge 318 carburetor that you need for your Dodge by looking at the vast inventory available on eBay and finding the one that your vehicle requires.
