    There are pressure and leakback tests you can do to determine if pump or regulator are bad. (tests can be found in just about any half decent service manual & require a high pressure gauge) No test is valid unless you are certain that the filter is clean. What makes you think you need a pump?

Best bet is to get the fuel pressure, Not sure about yours but most have whats called a shrader valve on the fuel rail, so get or borrow a fuel pressure gauge, screw it on the valve or plum it in-line on the system. Once that is done turn your key to the on position and check the guage it should read up around 40 to 65 psi depending on the specks of the truck. If it does start the truck and watch the guage for any irregularitys such as the neddle bounching and so on. A nother eays check just to cover the basis if after all this complete, turn off thruck and watch guage. Make sure it hold pressure, if not i would start to look toward injector o-rings. If it is not holding pressure it can simulate a hard stsrt associated with and some times confused for a faulty fuel pump.

I think my fuel pump is bad . It acted like it ran out of gas , and now it want start. I can not hear fuel pump running when I turn the key on . Help

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Try to loosen the bolt on the fuel rail then turn on the ignition but don't crank the engine. If the fuel doesn't flow then it's definitely a bad fuel pump which will surely require replacement.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

How do i know if my fuel pump is bad on my 1995

Well that could be a indication of a bad fuel pump, but it could also be a bad or clogged fuel filter, or even a really needing a tune up... When was the last time you changed the plugs and wires? I would do that before I ever got into the fuel pump issue... You can have the pump pressure tested. Do the plugs and wires, next do the fuel and air filters... If that doesnt help have the pressure tested...

Were is the fuel pump in a 04 ram 2500 diesel, and how do you know it is bad? I have a 1/2 tank of fuel and the filter resavoir is empty, and I was driving when it stalled stalled on me.

You may have either or, or maybe even both..The first fuel pump, is in the gas tank...and the second one is a fuel injection pump....You have to see if you have power at your fuel pump//in the tank..if you do, and it does not work then that one is bad, you can also bang on the tank with a Rubber Mallot, while someone is cranking it, and if it know its going bad also...8bd411c.jpgab5b38b.jpg
