Re: 1992 dodge stealth
Haven't come across any petrol (gasoline) fuel injected vehicle that doesn't have a fuel pump relay......if you can hear the fuel pump running, the relay must be good....If the vehicle doesn't want to start, its more likely that you have some other problem.... Check to find out if you have ignition....Remember it's high voltage, so take care.... Remove one of the plug leads and with an insulated screw driver inserted where the plug fits, hold the metal part that protrudes close to a metal part that's grounded.....Somewhere on top of the engine.....Check to see if there's a spark....with a system in good condition, the spark should easily jump 5mm..... If you have spark, then check the fuel pump pressure....This needs special equipment, so it's off to the repair shop....

The easiest way to relieve the fuel pressure is to start your engine and pull the Fuel Pump Relay - car should die. Now there is no fuel pressure. Turn the key to the off position and change out the fuel filter. Once the filter is changed, put the relay back in and prime the system - turn the key on (don't start) for a few seconds. Turn off, turn key on for a few seconds then start the car. Check for leaks by filter. Easy peasy. Hope this was helpful :-)
I owned a 91 model--glad you have the sohc as the dohc has real problems.
some general thoughts:
The relay is possible but does the electric fan come on? If it does not after 10 minutes it will overheat.
Saw two where water pump caused same issue.
Check for possible head gasket leaking(compression tested?)
Another valuable resource I have used is the Socal 3S club located in the LA area of California---they have a online forum with areas for problems and solutions---free to join and they have several segments for parts and problems and general back and forth.
Again my experience here is based on owning both a SOHC and a Twin Turbo made in 91-----not like working on a ford...........
Let me know if I can help in any way----you are more likely to get good help from one of the many forums dedicated to these cars than here.
the fuel pump relay on a 91 to 93 dodge stealth base and es models is in the passenger area on the passanger side of the car there a lil kick panel held by one screw behind a black cap pull the panel of and its right behind it.. its a gold box with wire harness connected at bottom. its a 2 part relay that controls ur fuel pump and engine managment system. email me at email@example.com if u would like a pic of were it is at
For 1992 Dodge Stealth 3.0L MFI DOHC 6cyl... * The Engine Control Computer is located:
Front seating area, center, under dash, front of console, mounted on firewall * The Control Module-Ignition is located:
Under hood, driver side, upper engine area, driver side of intake manifold, mounted in engine block
There is not fuse for pump but a relay in the relay block. I do suggest jumping to see if pump turns on. Test voltage from ECM if needed. If voltage is to pump, then pump is shot. If not voltage, relay may be bad
Unplug you're fans.. Take some wires, ( i used speaker wire. ) Have someone help you, :) connect it to you're fan and then to the battery one to ground one to power. If you're fan doesn't turn on then you're motor in the fan is dead.
2nd.Check you're relays, Easy way to do this is switch them around one byone... They can't all be bad :P and if it turns on.. then you have abad relay:P
3rd. Does you're Temp gauge work? There are a few sensors That could need to be replaced.
There is a fuel pump relay on your car. They are usually found in the underhood relay center, though in some cases, they can be under the dash. There is also a fuse for the fuel pump, seperate from the relay.
