Question about 1994 Dodge Ram

1 Answer

What should be the fuel pump pressure on a 1994 Dogde ramvan B350

The van will start just fine, but after idling to warm up, when I put it in drive it dies. If I hold the accelerator to the floor and crank for 20 - 30 seconds it will start. Sometimes is then ok, other times has no power. Suspect the fuel pump. What should be the pressure at the fuel rail during idle?

1994 Chevy s10 was starting and idling rough when engine was cold, but when warm ran fine. Now engine will turn over but wont start. Help please.


Check if your fuel pump works ( check your fuel pressure in the port in the injectors ) check if you have spark in the sparkplugs.

The car is fine till it warms up then the idle starts to go down and sometimes it stalls when i stop


Sounds like a weak fuel pump.Check your fuel pressure it should be 50-60 psi.You will need to pull the fuel relay then start the engine and let it run until it cuts off by itself then put the relay back in and hook up a scan tool and energize the pump and read the pressure.If its not within these specs replace fuel pump and filter.

1994 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.0 V6 Runs fine for about 10 min after that engine bogs down like it is not getting gas. I have replaced the fuel filter, map sencor, and fuel pressure regulator as was suggested...


Have you put a pressure gauge on and then drive to see if pressure drops. If it does it is likely the pump. Sometimes these problems lead to it being the computer.

1994 chevy lumina van. It will start and idle but stalls when gas


Try replacing the throttle position sensor. I had the same problem in my truck. It would start and run for a bit but as soon as you let off of the pedal, it would die. Try it and see if it works.

Backfiring and loss of power


'till you do some in depth testing of all systems, I'd place equal weight on every possibility. Make sure you cover the basics like fuel filter etc before getting crazy with it though. Also check cap. rotor, coil and wires. Idle cylinder pressure is different than that encountered when driving. This additional pressure will cause ignition spark to seek a better easier ground,(not the spark plugs where it should be going) causing missing under load.After checking , if you haven't found anything, its time to begin testing fuel pump pressures, modules and controls.
good luck

ya these motors need tons of fuel pressure so if you have a pressure tester test the fuel pressure prior to the fuel filter and see if it is atleast 25 psi if not replace pump with new or rebuild all the luck to you with current project
