  1. Hello Forum, Problem solved with the help of f442485!! It was the ignition control module. Runs great now! Thanks again to all for their input! You guys rock!! Greetings, AndyK
  2. Another question, if i keep driving, would the ignition module fail complete at some point, or would it still work for a while? AndyK
  3. I replaced the ballast resistor 2 months ago. So this would leave the ignition module then. Are they all the same? Because i found one at AutoZone already.
  4. Thank you guys! I replaced the ballast resistor 2 months ago. So there is a control module. This it what it feels like, losing the spark. It is either in the ignition or that module. I had 3 days in a row and nothing happened. Weird. AndyK
  5. Hello, I have a 1976 Apollo with a Dodge 440 V8 engine. M500. With a thermoquad carburator. I have replaced the fuel filter with a clear one, to see if maybe dirt glogs it up. Nothing, fuel is clean. Fuses are good and it seems it is an electric problem. It feels like someone flips a switch and it shuts off. I replaced the distributor cap, coil, spark plugs and wires last time i was here asking the forum for help. It was running nice, till a few weeks ago... AndyK
  6. Hello Forum I'm back with another question.... My 1976 Apollo motorhome engine keeps shutting off out of a sudden while driving. But it does not feel like a starving for gasoline stalling, more like turning the ignition key off. When i stop and crank engine, it comes on right away again. If it would be gasoline related, i would have to crank way more. There are days when it doesn't happen at all. And today it happened twice within a few yards. Otherwise the engine runs great and smooth. My question, is there a relay or module that could cause that? I checked all fuses and connections. Thank you in advance! AndyK

    Gentlemen, everything is working fine now, thanks to your support!!!! I hooked up the fuel line and after a few cranks the engine started right up! What a relief! I am so glad I started this thread and reached out! You guys were a tremendous help and I have learned a lot, which I appreciate. I guess this concludes our little adventure and I surely hope that this thread will help others in need! If I hear of someone needing assistance, guess where I will send him... If any of you ever need any help in regards to fitness and health (nutrition, minerals, working out, fitness equipment, vitamins or virus killers) I will be glad to help out!! So long my friends and enjoy life at its fullest! Thank you again!!! AndyK

    Rich...thank you so much! I was about to call you today after the last try, but it came on!!! Now can I add a pressure regulator to this pressure gauge chrome thing, or is it just for reading the pressure? Thank you again!! Andy

    Gentlemen, here is the long awaited update on my situation. I made it run. I replaced the distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs and coil. I disconnected the fuel line and caught the gas from the line in a jar. I cranked the engine and sprayed carb cleaner in the carburator, like suggested above. It came right on. So now I will further investigate this chrome thing in the picture below. It says pump - carb - gage on it. It also has a vacuum hose on top. Where it says "gage" is a bolt screws in. I am wondering. Any ideas? For now a Huge THANK YOU to all of you! I took all the advice given, even if I wasn't replying to all of them ( I had to work a little 🙂). More to come... Greetings Andy

    I don't think I have the means to check the pressure, my equipment is limited. 😔

    Thank you very much for your offer. I will try the new plugs, the problem is surely in the carb since one cylinder was heavily flooded! If it fails again, I will surely give you a call!! Thank you.

    DickandLouis thank you for the tip! I got new spark plugs and new wires. I got all the spark plugs out and cranked the engine a few times to get the rest of the gasoline out. Seems like only one cylinder was heavily flooded. Next I will install the spark plugs and spray cleaner in that hole. I will let it sit for a while like you suggested, maybe even till tomorrow. I'm getting tired of this haha. Thank you.
