Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 2500

2003 cummins diesel stalls when fuel level between 1/4 and 1/2.

My 2003 Dodge 3500 diesel stalls when the fuel level reaches between 1/4 and 1/2 a tank and I'm driving. It first starts to buck and sputter making barely any power then it picks back up and runs OK for a couple of miles. Then it just stalls. It will re-start if you crank it enough with the pedal to the floor but it will only idle in park. As soon as you put it in gear it stalls again. I did have the fuel lines off at the filter but I'm 99% sure that I put them back correctly. I first thought that the fuel and return lines were swapped.

    I think it is reading correctly because I can leave it idling until the fuel level drops close to empty. I also added diesel in 4 gallon increments and watched the fuel gauge to ensure it was close to were it should be. Good suggestion though! Fire another one my way.

Check that the tank is not under vacuum caused by a blocked vent.

99 Dodge ram 2500 with cummins diesel stalled and won't restart. Changed fuel filter, and determined that there is fuel going to injector pump.


loosen one fuel line to one of the injectors, try to start the truck and look for the fuel to spray out of the line. it should spray rather hard if the injector pump is working right. if it just dribbles or trickles out you have a weak pump.

Check fuel filter.

Also add some fuel conditioner (e.g. HEAT for diesel) to get rid of any water that may be in your system.

1998 cummins diesel idels fine but stalls less than a 1/4 mile down road.


Have you checked or changed the fuel filter? Will it start and idle after it stalls? I have seen dirty filters or filters that have colapsed cause a similar condition before.

Good Luck

Engine replacement


any of the non computerized aka 12 valve cummins will interchange going from the p7100 pump on the 94 to the ve injection pump on the 92 may mean rerouting some of the fuel lines to hook it up. make sure you use all the sensors from the 94 engine though so all your gauges read correctly other than the fuel system the engines are identical though so should have no issues doing this

Charging problem on 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel


I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours
