    Same thing happened to my truck, same type, same year. I measured the voltage at the pump and it is registering 10.5 volts. I connected a new pump and turned the ignition on and the new pump did nothing. Should it at least be making a sound??

2004 dodge 2500 ram diesel


I'm not familiar with that particular vehicle, but most diesel systems have a primer under the hood. You will need to pump that slowly until you feel some resistance. That will push fuel to the engine. The other pump may not be able to push fuel through until the system is primed.

If that doesn't get you running I would suspect a clogged fuel filter. Most Dodge vehicles have one on the frame. Just follow the fuel lines until you find it. There may also be one attached to the pump primer.

Changing that filter would my next action. Whether the pump is in the tank or added on outside the tank, you may still need to prime the system after the filter is replaced. Air in the line may cause it to stall, just reprime and start again.

Good luck.

Check fuel filter.

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.

2002 Dodge 3500 diesel chuggs below half a tank of fuel


I do not own that truck, not do I own one, but I can tell what I know. Some fuel tanks have more than one pump, one picks up fuel up high, and the other picks up what is on the bottom. Also, if diesel pumps have in tanks filters, that could be your culprit. But since diesels have such complicated fuel delivery systems, I could not say for sure.
