2001 Dodge 2500 Cummins T/D- hesitation in fuel delivery system?

No noticable drop in RPMs on guage but definitely hesitates (hitches), doesn't occur everyday but when it does it can vary from annoying to really bad. Fuel pump and injector pump have been replaced, doesn't seem to be a filter issue either. Take your foot off the throttle and hesitation stops which tells me it might be an issue within the throttle system but I really don't know. Have had many mechanics look at but no one has any solutions. Help.

Check the fitting off the pump to supply line it might be smaller & can restrict the fuel preasure check for kinks in lines or old rubber ones breaking down from inside

you may have a clogged fuel filter it is a quick and easy fix. after replacing the fuel filter if the problem reoccures then i recommend that you take the vehicle to a local shop to get a diagnostic test. most shops give free diagnosis. if you need instruction for removal and installation of the fuel filter for your dodge ram dont hesitate to contact me with a comment on this post.

2000 Dodge Cummins is blowing fuse on the starter solenoid. Also, tach goes to zero and back up to normal until truck warms up. Noticed a momentary hesitation at highway speed once or twice while driving...


wire that goes to the starter not the main wire there is a smaller wire that sends electric from the switch to the starter solinoid might be shorting out (skinned wire between the starter and the ignition switch/fusebox

2004 dodge caravan 2.4 Hesitates during Acceleration and at idele


You should definitely replace the fuel filter though this probably won't fix your hesitation. It wouldn't hurt to replace the spark plugs this is usually the culprit on these engine. I have the same engine in a '99 caravan and found the for some reason the spark plugs on cylinder 3 and 4 loosen up after one year and cause a misfire between 45 and 50 mph under load (when mildly accelerating).

2001 dodge 2500 diesel 24 valve intermitant hesitation


Have you ever had the mechanical lift pump go out on these vehicles? If the fuel pressure drops under 5psi on the VP44 injection pump for any length of time, the diaphrams get weakened and especailly when the warmer seasons come back, you will notice fuel delivery problems. A new/rebuilt pressure pump is required! Sorry for the bad news, if indeed this is the case. One solution/prevention is to replace the lift pump with the upgraded Mopar (goes into the tank now) or an aftermarket pump like the FASS pump or the like. Anyone that has the VP44 injection pump should upgrade ASAP! This is a common problem on the OEM mechanical lift pump on this particular run of Rams. Need to do it before you run up a costly repair bill later on down the road. The stock/OEM lift pumps WILL go out, sometimes as little as 12k miles, sometimes 50k miles.....I had 3 go out, Stock at 43k, Mopar replacement lasted 31k and the 3rd (aftermarket OEM) lasted 14k. I had a fuel pressure guage installed a very long time ago to alert me of failures. The 4th go around I installed the FASS and now it maintains 21 to 27psi even with chip mods switched to extreme! I am still on original VP44 pump (knock on wood!)
Good Luck!
