Fuel filter is located on the inside frame rail under the drivers door and the fuel filter is located in the gas tank. Start with the simple and change the fuel filter first, but it is common for the fuel pump to burn out when the gas tank has run out of fuel, but since your engine started back up. Good chance that your fuel pump may still be good and your fuel filter may have pick up dirty from the bottom of the gas tank which is causing your engine not to get any fuel.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

Hard to start, no fuel to carb


If you take the fuel line off at the carb and crank the engine, does the pump push fuel out of the line ?

Durango starts sometimes. then acts like its getting no gas and dies. if i stomp on gas it will keep running till i let off. bad gas ? fuel filter ? fuel pump?


I would suggest starting with the less expensive solutions first. If you pull the air intake hose off the throttle body and open the throttle with the engine off look down inside if it is black try spraying it out with throttle body cleaner make sure to spray it out good. Afterwards start it you may have to keep your foot on the gas for a few minutes to make sure it doesn't stall then take your foot off the gas pedal and see if it stays running if it does your throttle body just needed cleaned. Note do not use carb cleaner use throttle body cleaner only, carb cleaner can damage the sensor in your throttle body.

Checked the carb out at 0400 this morning while the outside temp was cold. It started fine again. I started it up, let it warm up to operating temp,and took it for a long drive. While driving down I 10, it...


a couple of places to look at would be the carb,(float bowl and needle valve)to see if it might be overloading it with fuel,the other would be the choke weather it be electric or vacume/mechanical, then look at the egr valve to see if is operating right,check the vacume on it also,if u pull a vacume on it, and it does the same thing, that it has been doing then its either going bad or there is a vacume problem.
If it is the fuel overloading it you can check the plugs to make sure,check for a black,sooty build up on them.(carbon buildup)
being as you put a new fuel pump in it it might be possible that it has blown an internal seal in the carb if its the original carb,and that would cause it to stall out till the fuel level came back down in the float bowl.

It is very bad to let your car run out of gas. You may need to give it exessive amount of gas when starting it.

Ran out of gas and now she won't run!


i would say that you have a bad fuel pump or if you have a carb on it the float inside the carb is stuck check these and i'm sure you will find it's one of these.
