You need to do a fuel pressure check.. You will need a special fuel gauge and the appropriate fittings and adapters are needed to properly test the fuel pressure.

1. Relieve the fuel pressure.
Remove the fuel pump relay form the Power Distribution Center (PDC) Start the engine and run until it stalls. attempt restating the engine until it will no longer run. Turn the ignition key off. Disconnect the cable from the negative battery terminal. Replace the fuel pump relay in the PDC. Any if you get any trouble codes at this time you will need to see a shop to have them cleared.

2. Disconnect the quick-connect fuel line fitting fuel gauge into the fuel line using the appropriate T-fitting and adapters.

3. Start the engine and check the pressure on the gauge, your reading should be 49 PSI with the pressure with the engine idling.

4. if the fuel pressure is not 49 PSI:
1) if fuel pressure is higher you could have a pinched of clogged fuel return hose of pipe. if the line is not obstructed check the fuel pressure regulator.
2) if fuel pressure is lower check the fuel filter, look for a pinched of clogged fuel hose between the tank and the fuel rail. check the pressure regulator for malfunctions. Look for leaks in the fuel line.

Hope this helps.

94 dodge caravan 3.3. Fuel pump sends gas thru filter, but no fuel at fuel rail valve even when cranking engine. What could be the prob?


You might have a crimp in the line between the filter and the rail ... or there might be a problem with the fuel rail itself. Best way to test for this is to detach the fuel rail from the line (like you did at the filter) and see if the gas is making it that far. If you have someone crank the engine for you while you have the fuel rail detached, the fuel pump should cause gas to come out of the line -- if this does not happen, the problem is with the line between the filter and the rail. If it is still working at the end of the line attached to the rail, you might have a blockage in the rail or faulty injectors.
If you are going to do all of the work yourself, I recommend a Haynes manual -- it will give you a list of problems that are common to your year, make and model with solutions, as well as directions and pictures / diagrams to make sure you are doing the work right.

How do i change fuel filter


2002 Dodge Caravan

Fuel Filter Replacement Procedure

1. The fuel filter is located on top of the fuel tank near the fuel pump module. Fuel lines are permanently attached to filter assembly and must be replaced with the fuel filter.

2. Release pressure from fuel system by removing the fuel pump relay and start the engine and let it die. Crank the engine a couple times after it dies to relieve more of the fuel pressure

3. Disconnect negative battery cable

4. Raise and support vehicle

5. Support fuel tank with transmission jack or floor jack with large plywood board to evenly distribute the weight of the fuel tank. NOTE: It is important to distribute weight evenly to prevent damage to the fuel pump module.

6. Disconnect ground strap from fuel tank

7. Remove inboard fuel tank straps and front "T" strap fastener

8. Lower the fuel tank approximately 6 inches to access the fuel filter assembly.

9. Disconnect the fuel lines at the fuel supply connector and the fuel pump module

10. Remove the retaining bolt and remove filter assembly from vehicle.

11. Reverse removal procedure to install (Don't forget to put the fuel pump relay back )

I went out to start my van and it would not start. My husband cranked and cranked and it einally started and he pulled it out of the garage and parked out front. After he turned it off it would not...


Maybe water in the fuel. I would get the filter replaced now, cut the old one open and see how bad it looks. If you have a lot of debris or rust, it may be coming from the tank.
