Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 3500 2WD
I have changed the fuel filter in my 1998 dodge ram 3500 4wd diesel. Now when my truck sits over night I can not get it to start. How do I fix this?
I had a similar problem with my 95 Dodge with a cummins in it. Took
forever to figure it out and so every morning, or if it sat 6-8 hours,
would have to operate the primer pump under the hood to get it started
for the day. Long story short. There is a fuel supply line to your
engine and all diesels have a fuel return to to the fuel tank. After
replaciing a section of fuel supply line with no results, discovered
there has been a history of undetectable micro perferations in the
steel fuel return line. The defective section of return line is
normally the section in front of the firewall. I replaced this section
with rubber hose. Its been several years since I did this repair... and
if I recall correctly, hacksaw removed the firewall section of steel
return tubing and hose clamped a section of rubber fuel line to replace
the steel line I removed. I've never had a problem with engine starts
since doing this repair. Hope this helps you out.
