Question about 1999 Dodge Ram

1 Answer

We have replaced the injector pump and the fuel pump. We have also ran a code reader on it and no codes show up. The truck will start sometimes and then not turn over others. We can be driving down the road and all of a sudden the truck will just cut out and die. Does anyone have any ideas as to why/what could be causing this problem?

I am assuming this is a diesel. It's probably still the transfer fuel pump. This pump must pump out at min 10psi. If it does not then the injector pump will soon fail, giving the symptoms you describe. To avoid all future fuel injection problems with all trucks with electronic pumps (as opposed to mechanical, pre '99?)I would recommend you bite the bullet and install a Fass fuel pump. My truck is an '02 with 750,000kms. Since I put on the Fass, at 591,000, I have had nary a problem.

My car ran out of gas and then a few days later when the fuel light came on, the check engine light quickly followed. More details inside...

google the codes you have posted here
codes P0303 and P0302 lexus 300
these are cylinder misfire codes. There is a procedure for this but I would suggest you rad that and follow directions before going the compression test route. The other thing you said was that all this started when you ran out of fuel. Could be you burned out the fuel pump or the pump sucked the junk up off the bottom of the tank and is now plugged up. So many choices but if it was me, I would start with the fuel pump before I started tearing into the motor.

Hope this helps.

89 camaro starts wont crank when it does wont idle and dies after 3000 rpm when you hold accelerator

Could be a problem with the pickup coil in the bottom of the distributor if equipped. The pickup coil provides the crank signal for the injectors and ignition module.
Did you clear the code and then 53 came back ?
On most models code 53 means the computer or one of the components is getting over 13 volts.

I have a 1992 Oldsmobile Cutluss Supreme was going down road the other night and just died, changed battery after having old one on charger for a day and getting know place, the car now cranks and turns...

to check fuel pressure you have to use a gauge not just push on the schrader valve to see if gas squirts out.these systems run at 35lbs pressure anything much less and it will not start.also check the fuel volume as if its low the pump cannot supply enough to fuel the motor to run it won`t.

i would check for trouble codes first to see if the computer has picked any up, if it shows no codes , then i would check the circuitry to see if all of the connections are tight under the hood, you didn't say how many miles the car had on it, so check the above listed items out 1st, it also could be a fuel injector stopping up on you, i had a 1989 corvette that did this, and after we checked out the fuel injectors , we found a bad one, replaced it and ran fine afterwards.

My 89 tempo is not getting fuel to the injectors the fuel pump is working fine what could be the problem

If you have pressure from your fuel pump, you could have a blockage between the pump and the injectors. Most likely spot would be the fuel filter. If your system is not clogged somewhere, (there is pressure to the injectors), then you have a sensor issue that is not telling your injectors when to spray. You can run code diagnostics to determine where the fault is. Since your car will not run, the code reader will have to come to you. National parts chains have the readers, and if you could take the car to them will normally read the fault codes and interpret them for you, many will let you take the reader for a small deposit, refundable upon return, show you how to use it etc. Good Luck! I hope this is very helpful!

Number tree injector not fireing in a mazda 323f

you mean the #3 fuel injector? start by checking the wire harness that plugs into it. sounds like an internal break in one of the wires. most fuel injectors have power going to them and the pcm grounds each of them individually to make them "fire" the gas charge. it is also possible that the injector is plugged up with debris and you will need to replace the injector. you should have a misfire code for #3 cylinder if you ran a scan with an OBDII error code reader.
