1s the fuel pump should not be that noisy, and the problem u are describing is a defective/worn out fuel pump, it is taking time to built pressure, replace the fuel pump and don't forget to replace the in line fuel filter as well.

My 2004 dodge ram turns over but sounds like is not getting fuel what can i do


I know I had the same problem with my 2004 3500 Cummins...try turning the key to the crank position and let it go (this will allow the fuel pump to run for about 25 seconds, basically priming the pump). Try starting the truck again, if it cranks over and sounds rough this is normal. Let it run until it goes back to normal. If you cannot crank the truck over keep repeating the process above (making sure you turn the key to the off position after each time you try). **This information I found out of my Chilton Dodge Repair Manual**

How do you change a fuel pump in a 2003 chevy avalanche?


drop the fuel tank. (hopefully it is just about empty) on top of tank unplug power plug disconnect fuel lines and remove locking ring on top of pump unit, lift pump up out of tank. replace in opposite order. It really is that easy if the tank is empty as you can do it all with no jack . I did my yukon xl in about a hour but i had a friend handing me whatever i yelled for. I also removed the rear driveshaft so i would have plenty of room to sit up under the truck and god was that nice. Make sure you support the rear axle up with jackstands, yes jack rear of truck off the ground.

04 chevy avalanche , takes 2 times the rotations of starter to turn the engine over but still starts .. Changed plugs and wires and tips maybe fuel pump injectors?


You are on the right track, the problem which is common is the fuelpump, the problem is , theres an internal antiflow valve the goes bad inside the pump, what happens is the fuel runs back into the tank and empties the lines and injector rail, when you go to start the truck it now take time for it to pnump fuel back through the lines to fuel rail and injectors and pressurize, so it take so cranking to get going. a little neat trick to be sure is to turn key on then off three times and then it should fire up, if it does then its the fuelpump, you will need to drop the tank and replace the fuelpump asm, the pump will still operate, we have customers that have had this problem for a couple of years and still havent repaired it due to the cost, they dont mind the long crank time to start, if you are going to repair drive until gas is about empty, this will help alot when its time to drop the tank,heres a picture of the fuelpump asm, hope this is helpful, have a good day.johnjohn2_13.jpg

2003 Avalanch fuel gage


You have a problem with the stepper motor gauge that Chevy used in the 02-06? Avalanche. All the gauges use the same stepper motor. They just go wonky and do all kinds of weird things. I have replaced two on mine already and two more are now acting up. There is a guy selling the motors and the repair for this problem on E-bay.
