    He said he checked it at the relief valve I think that is what he said.

    It cranks but doesn't start. He is 100 miles from us and the truck went out on the highway. At the relief valve before repalcing the fuel pump there was no fuel.

    Ok, if he is getting the fuel, the next common problem would be spark.  Have him check all the spark plugs and wires to make sure the wires are on tight on both ends and that the plugs aren't fouled.  How many miles are on the vehicle and when was the last time the plugs and wires were changed?

    Are you sure that the fuel is making it all the way to the engine?

Take a look at the repair history. If you have fuel and you know the fuel is entering the cylinders then you need to find out why there isn't spark. Inspect spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor, then the coil, distributor, wiring, ignition switch, and ignition module.

Is son sure he used an EXACT replacement? If it's getting too much fuel that could be a problem.

Has he changed the Fuel filter too? I hope its not one of those where the fuel filter is above the gas tank!

My 1998 dodge 1500 laramie (5.9 liter) won't


hi,

no,

check to see if its getting fuel. find the fuel rail service valve(it looks like a bicycle tire valve on the fuel line and has a cap on it)
hold it open while you crank it to see if fuel is present. if no fuel then its time for a fuel pump. if theres fuel pressure there during cranking then I would suggest taking it in to a shop to have the codes pulled on it rather than trying to diagnose anything else further...jm

GMC 2000 sierra pick up 1500 sounds like it wants to start but won't turn over. Battery sounds good so I guess battery and alternator are ok. For several years fuel gauge doesn't work and...


It sure could be. But, first...by "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.

Why won't my 2001 1500 dodge ram start after running out of gas? (i've put gas in it)


You should measure the fuel pressure. When you run out of gas the fuel pump is not cooled by fuel. This can cause a pump that is ready to quit to fail. There could be other causes but I think the fuel pump is the most likely cause.

I hope this helps.

1998 Dodge 1500 Pickup out of time spark


I would begin by checking 2 things. You can loosen the gas line that to the engine and turn the key on and see if the fuel pump is pumping gas to the engine. If it does, I would remove a spark plug wire and check to see if you have any fire to the spark plugs. If it has fuel and fire. I would check my timing.

1994 Dodge ram 1500 won't stay running


check both filters first, should be on on top, and one under frame, if replaced both, its probably your fuel pump

Doesn't get fire since replacing fuel pump.


Normally after replacement of the fuel pump you need to get the fuel flowing back through the system again. To do this, turn the ignition key until you hear the fuel pump kick in for a few seconds, then turn key back to off. Repeat this several times to get the fuel flowing. If this doesn't help, you will need to ensure that the fuel pump is actually coming on. Let me know
