Question about 1995 Dodge Ram 2500

1995 dodge van falls down when the fuel tank gets to 1/4 of fuel

I have a 1995 2500 Dodge Ram van with 5.7 magnum motor,it has 106,000 miles on it. When pulling a trailer it pulls down and fades out at 3/8 tank of fuel but without a trailer it happens at 1/4 a tank. It never dies completly it just does't have any power. If you crowd the throttle it only makes it worst. If you fill the tank it starts and runs fine. With the cruise on it starts to quiver and shake and then it loses power. Check engine light does not come on so we can run code on this event.

Sounds like a possible pluged fuel filter or a tired fuel pump. the pump is cooled by the gas. so if you work it at 1/4 tank or below it tends to get hot. but towing may make it hot anyway. check fuel pressure and the replace the fuel filter

Dodge ram turbo diesel 5.9 1999 runs good for 5 miles then start lose power then runs for 1 mile and keeps doing the same thing.I chaned the fuel filter and fuel pump but she keeps doing it.Fuel pressure...


The only thing I can think of is some how either some gas got into your tank or some other foreign matter. ie: sugar or something else.
I know if you put gas in a diesel it will mess up and slow up the motor.
Making it want to cut out. Not sure about little trucks but the big trucks use this stuff call Hot Shot.
It helps get the water/condensaion out of the tank and lines.
Hope this helps and good luck.

Van stops running


You need to look at your fuel pump it does not pump to specification when it gets hot. You might just have to replace it.

Good luck

1995 dodge 2500 van fades out when it gets to 1/4 tank of fuel


Hello
Welcome to FixYa
This sounds like you have a bad hose in your fuel tank that runs from the fuel sender to the fuel pump it is about 3" long and many time have seen a bad clamp on the hose, to repair this the fuel tank needs to be removed.

Ram van dies


sounds to me like the fuel pump is bad, when it warms up it dies, try to check this by filling the tank and running a while, then run the van with a near empty tank and see how it does. A full tank of gas should keep the fuel pump cool as it is surrounded by the liquid. I had a similar problem. when my tank got to about a quarter full (3/4 empty) the van would shut off after a short distance, then after sitting for a while would start up again get me a little farther then shut off again. i ended up changiung the fuel pump cost me almost $300. if this simple test shows no results the you got electrical problems, check distributor, and surrounding cables. good luck. also check your fuses could be dirty!

Gas gage plays up down


This problem is all to common on all dodge trucks in the 90's, the fuel guage sending unit in the gas tank needs to be replaced. They won't sell just the sender, you have to buy the fuel pump module for $300.00
