I am not real familiar with the 3500 as to wether they have a secondary fuel pump but there should be a test port on top of the fuel rail that can be hooked up to a gauge to see if you are getting fuel pressure there but I would say that your fuel pump is out or a bad fuel pump relay.

2000 dodge neon will run on starting fluid once,then no start


You're either out of gas or you need a new fuel pump.
Roll the keys back to the 'off' position.
Have someone sit by the back tire and listen as you roll the key forward until the lights on the dash come on DO NOT CRANK THE ENGINE OVER.

If they hear the pump then you're out of gas, if they don't hear the pump your pump is likely burned up.

Car wont start


You need to know if the fuel pump is working.TURN KEY ON,BUT DON,T CRANK engine, Listen for the pump to kick on(should hear it.)IF the check engine light is on,have it scanned. A bad crank or cam sensor could prevent starting.IT could be anything from bad plugs,wires,out of gas, or bad sensors.

HOW I CAN KNOW WHICH PUMP GOES ON MY SATURN VUE PRIMARY OR SECONDARY IS 3.0 ENGINE


The primary fuel pump is located in the left side of the tank. If you fill the tank up and it still does not start then it is the primary tank. Problem is that now you will have to drop the tank with a full tank of gas. The primary pump is used to pump the fuel to the fuel rail, while the secondary pump is used to pump fuel from the right side of the tank to the left side. I usually replace both primary and secondary so I don't have to pull the tank again if the secondary is also bad.

Are you sure you have a fuel pump problem? What are your symptoms?

My shuts off while driving


the car engine has a well know problem with the crank position sensor, if it is bad or the connection loose or incorrect, you will have this problem.
There are two reasons for engine shutting down. A: Electrical; spark plugs no longer getting spark and engine dies out abruptly. B: Gas starvation. This is usually because of gas pump or something which stops the gas from getting to the carburator/injector. Of course, this can be electrical, also, as the fuel pump may be an electric one and if the fuse for it goes out the pump stops working. In these cases the engine does not stop abruptly, but dies out as the gas in the line is used up.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Engine cranks but won't start


If it is an electrical Fuel Pump, you will hear the pump whirring as soon as you turn the key to "ON". If you can't hear it, the fuel pump is bad. If it is a mechanical fuel pump on the engine, remove the hose that goes into the carburator. And crank the engine. It should pump the gas out without a problem. If it does not, the fuel pump is bad. Also check the relay to the fuel pump and the shutoff valve. It is more likely that it is a relay problem since it hits a bump and goes off then it carries a current again. Probably a bad relay under the hood for the fuel system.
