While a friend is cranking the motor, give the bottom of the gas tank a couple of bangs in the center with a decent hammer. If it starts, your fuel pump is worn out and needs to be replaced.

2000 Dodge Ram 1500 turns over but wont start, I've checked the air filter, and listened for the fuel pump, and checked the spark plugs for a spark, but I still haven't figured this one out.


Check your Fuel pump turn you key to the on position and remove your gas cap put your ears right up against the hole and get someone to turn the key on and off a couple of times you should hear a noise if you don't your pump is gone.

Doesn't sound like you've considered spark. Sounds like you're losing spark somehow. You seem to know your way around a truck, so I don't have to explain every little thing. Just check all the ignition stuff, go through the distributor and coil and plugs and wires. If it's gettin fuel, its either a spark issue or air/vaccum issue. Hope this helps.

2000 silverado wont start


one good way to check that the fuel pump is running to listen. take the gas cap of and put you ear the the fuel tank fill neck. have a freind turn the key from the off position to the on position, but do not start the crank the engine over. you should hear a huming or wizzing sound for a few short moments. if you hear that sound the pump is running and more thatn likely pumping fuel.

Check All Fuses and Relays in the power distribution center under the hood and at the fuse panel inside the truck! Let me know if you find anything burnt!

My truck did this after I replaced the fuel pump. Turned out to Fuel Pressure Regulator. It would crank and crank but never start. It's located underneath the black plastic manifold on the side of the injectors.
