If it's electric just take the line off intake and put it in a cup or something to catch the gas. Turn on key for a moment and see if any gas comes out. You can usually hear pump in take run. If it's mechanical pump, take it off intake into a cup and crank the motor over a couple times. Do all this with engine cold. If no gas, change pump. Some times changing gas cap helps.

P1389 code on a 97 dodge ram 4x4 5.9. Replaced the pickup, ignition wire, asd relay and crankshaft sensor. Cap and button looked great and are only a couple months old. Truck will crank not start. Gas


are you sure that you changed the ASD relay? that code is for no signal from the ASD to the PCM. Check that you have constant 12v at the relay base and that you have switched voltage when the key is on at the relay base, then make sure you have continuity to ground at the relay base. If the relay clicks when the key is turned on then the internal coil is making and should be sending a signal to the PCM when the key is turned on.

My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan will crank but won't start.


Hi, if an engine cranks but refuses to start, it lacks ignition, fuel or compression. When the engine cranks normally but won't start, you need to check ignition, fuel and compression. Ignition is easy enough to check with a spark tester or by positioning a plug wire near a good ground. No spark? The most likely causes would be a failed ignition module, distributor pickup or crankshaft position (CKP) sensor.

1989 dodge d-series pickup. Truck was running fine and parked at work. At end of shift, the truck cranks but no fuel pressure in the system. Removed hose at filter and cranked. No fuel from pump. Is it...


Are you sure there is fuel in the tank (you may have run out or someone - a thief - may have syphoned it without your knowledge). If the fuel pump is electrically operated then when you first turn the ignition key on you should hear the fuel pump whirring for a couple of seconds as it primes the fuel system (if you don't hear the pump operating in this way then it is possible that either the fuel pump fuse has failed, there is a loose connector or a faulty fuel pump). Check also that the earth connections are sound. It could also be kinked fuel hose (unlikely but possible) between the fuel tank and the filter.

Won't start


Check for fuel pressure at carb by placing a pressure gauge between the carb and fuel line . Check fuel delivery by putting a long hose connected to fuel line at carb and cranking. If you have pressure below 4lbs or if you get poor delivery cranking (with hose in a can or jar to measure amount) than you have either a bad pump or filter. If engine starts when you pour a small amount of fuel into it, and delivery and pressure was good, then there is a carb problem. When working on older vehicles, always make sure that fuel line from tank is not rusted and leaking.

99 ram diesel wont start


Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.

1999 dodge ram 2500 5.9 cummins diesel.won't start.turns over thats it. put in a new intake fuel pump. still won't start.got fuel to the injectors sometimes.


Check the fuel pressure at the filter. Odds are the lift pump, located below the filter, is toast. Continual cranking of the motor with a bad LP wil cause the injector pump to heat up and burn out. Replace the LP and fuel filter. Bleed the system by cracking the inlet to the injector pump and bumping the enigine over so the LP will run. Once you have fuel at the injector pump, crack injectors 1,3,and 4. Crank the motor for no more 6 or 7 seconds at a time until it turns over. Give the pump time to cool for a couple of mintues between cranks. This process is easier with two people, one to crank and the other to watch for fuel and tighten the injectors once it starts. If the injector pump is fried at this point from cranking with no fuel, the motor should idle, but will stumble all over itself when the throttle is applied.

My 1997 Dodge Avenger's engine won't start


Try cam and/or crank sensor. If crank to cam timing isn't detected properly it'll crank all day but won't start. I had similar problem on my 2.5L V6 Avenger....drove home fine, no engine light, next morning it cranked, but wouldn't start. The crank sensor was faulty.

1995 DODGE RAM B1500 NO START


You need to use a LED type test light for the injectors or a Bosch style Noid light for the injector. To test the cam/crank sensor signal you either need a scanner to read them or a lab scope to show you a signal. The pickup plate in the dist handles the injector timing, the crank sensor provides a RPM signal. They both feed the computer information for ignition timing. Good fuel pressure, injector activity(Noid), and good spark out of the coil. The coil is what I replace the most of.
