Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 2500

2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins Diesel

About 2 weeks ago I changed by fuel filter then about a week later I ran it down to no gas. Now what happens is that the truck will just shut down it doesn't give me any warnings it just stops running. Any solutions. I toke my 2500 Dodge cummins into the dealer after it stalled and the engine light went on. They ran a test and said the fuel pump needed to be replaced and the fuel pump need to be relocated. Is the normal for them to relocate a fuel pump? And would this have anything to do with running the fuel below quarter of a tank?

There is a technical service bulletin to relocate the fuel pump on this vehicle when the transfer pump needs replaced. there is the possibility the transfer pump is going bad on the 2003 now...its not good to run them low or out of fuel

Well, Hate to say this to you but your Cummins 24v turbo diesel does not have glow plugs. The fuel temperature necessary for proper ignition is heated by an element inside your fuel filter housing.

Hard starting have changed fuel filter four times in two weeks


Either carry a lot of fuel filters or drain the fuel tank after it sits for a full two days, You have water in the fuelor a ton of algae. Confirm the water by pouring out the fuel filter. Any water will be obvious. The water in the tank will separate from the fuel if left standing. Then the water can be drained out the bottom of the tank.Water in the fuel can blow tips off injectors so take heed. and good luck.If you don't have a fuel water seperator, consider having a RACOR separater installed.

Dodge cummins won't start, fuel reaching injector pump but no fuel coming out of injector pump.


You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?
