Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 2500
We have a 2004 Dodge 2500 diesel. The problem is when fuel gets below 1/2 tank, while driving at freeway speeds, the truck will act like it's not getting fuel. Sometimes you can downshift and get the accelerator to respond, and sometimes not and it will stall out while still moving and completely loose all power in the truck. We have replaced the fuel filter and no codes are coming from the pumps. Any ideas what is causing this?
I would remove the tank and check the rubber hose that comes from the fuel pump to the top of the tank/gage mechanism, if there is a crack in the hose it would explain why there isnt much fuel being delivered to the motor, since it will be partly sucking air.

Either your fuel guage is not reading properly and you have less fuel than you think or your fuel pickup nedds to be adjusted sometimes the pickup looses the ability to pull the fuel from a certain level which would indicate that the pick up is going bad or is already bad if you replace just the pickup see if you can get one thats a little longer than the one that you have already so that it can go deeper into the tank. maybe the pickup tube has fallen off also and the pump can only pull the fuel when the tank is full. hope this gives you some ideas as to where to start.
