Run fault codes and look for a canister purge valve problem as I suspect that what you have is a fuel tank not venting properly and causing a vacuum in the tank which is preventing fuel being pumped through the system ( same affect as blocked filters)

SOURCE: 2004 Dodge ram diesel just die out of the blue.

It sounds like it could be the transfer pump. Turn the key on and then crank the engine for about 1 second but leave the key in the run position and listen for the transfer pump to run. It should run for about 15 seconds after you stop cranking. If not, then you will need to replace the transfer pump with a in-the-tank conversion kit if your is mounted on the side of the engine block below the fuel filter housing. If you already have the in-the-tank pump then it might be siezed or the "sock" might be plugged up with alge or other contaminants. I usually lift the bed rather than removing the tank to replace the fuel module. If the check engine light is on you might want to have it scanned for codes to make sure since the modules can be spendy.

SOURCE: 1994 Dodge Ram 2500, Cummings engine, 170,000

Does that 94 have the two fuel pumps on it? If it has the fuel pump on the side of the block and the high-pressure fuel pump on the top, I could almost bet that the one on the block has a check valve going out. Seen I guy spend $700.00 on a new pump and injectors and didn't bother to test the delivery pump. If it does have the primary pump on the block and the check valve goes bad when cold it would run fine and when it gets hot it loses it's prime, it's easy to test just pull the fuel pump off the block and plug the fuel line both sides and while you have it out push down on the actuator with your finger on the suction side and one on the pressure side, if the pump fails to hold vacuum for more than a minute replace it. Otherwise it will destroy the pressure fuel pump and that is expensive. As well the shut off solenoid can be taken apart on some of them and on the back side it has a round disk like on a started solenoid remove the two screws that hold them on clean the round disk with sand paper and the to contact points as well if there is a burr sticking out on one of the contacts file it off with a file then sand it down. Some of the fuel shut off's come apart from the front, either way it's a easy thing to check on both and could save you some big money. Also please rate me as I am a mechanic not a typist so it takes me some time to do this, fact is I could of done what I told ya already if I had the truck. Those Cummins engine was the cats meow when they came out.

No/Low Fuel Pressure after replacing in-tank fuel pump & filter


Need to have the fuel pressure checked at fuel rail to know for sure if there is a fuel pressure problem for sure. There may be a in line filter as well, you can also do a check of the pressure regulator by pulling the vacuum line off of it then try starting the car with it off and see if it runs, if it does the regulator is bad, but IF it doesnt run doesnt necessarly mean it is good, a lot of fuel filters have a bypass wich allows the gas to bypass the filter when it is full bad thing is the debris can then plug the injectors causing problems, or there could be a loss of signal to tell the injectors to give fuel to the cylinders from an electrical or a sensor failure. So it is best to test the pressure to know for sure if it is in the fuel line or the injectors if it is truly being starved of gas. hope this helps

Car starts and runs for about 10-15 seconds and then stops, seems to be starving for gas. Is this a fuel filter, if so where are filters located??


it sounds as if your fuel pump is bad. depending on how many miles you have on the car, the fuel filter may be clogged. this is usually located along the back of frame rail, usually on the right hand side. replacing this is the cheapest and quickest fix. most people tend to forget the fuel filter, and i've seen cars with over hundred thousand miles and still have the original filter.

try taking the oxygen sensor out of the manifold by the firewall and take it for a ride,it sounds like u have a plugged catalytic converter,by removing the sensor your givin the pressure somewhere to escape,if u do have to replace the cat converter i would suggest putting a factory converter on it because if u dont, the check engine light will come on due to the fact that aftermarket converters only have three of the four precious metals required to work properly thats why they are cheaper

Change your fuel filter, it may have gone it's life time and is getting to dirty to let fuel flow properly. Your fuel pump to may be getting weak, if the fuel filter is dirty the pump works harder and heats up and could be over heating the fuel pump relay too. The fuel pump relay i believe is in the glove box behind a panel that say relay, there should be (3) in there and the middle one is the fuel pump's. switch then around after you change the fuel filter and if you get a chance, check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Good luck and hope this help's if there is a Auto Zone around you, you can ask to use the fuel pressure gauge to see what fuel pressure you have and they'll have the step by step instructions on how to do it and takes about 5 min to do and will have the fuel filter and step by step to replace that too. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Stalling


Best thing to check is your fuel filter. After sitting for a little while, it will allow fuel through it but when you put a demand on the system, it cant supply enough and will sputter and die. Its easy to replace and very inexpensive. If it continues after that, you will at least know it was eliminated and can move from there.
