The fuel pump module is installed in the top of the fuel tank and contains the electric fuel pump, fuel pump reservoir, inlet strainer fuel gauge sending unit, fuel supply and return line connections and the pressure regulator. The inlet strainer, fuel pressure regulator and level sensor are the only serviceable items. If the fuel pump requires service, replace the fuel pump module.

  3. While holding the fuel pump module in place install the locking ring and torque to 40 inch lbs. (5 Nm) using special tool 6856 or a spanner-type tool.
  4. Install or connect the following:
    Fuel tank Fuel pump module electrical connector Negative battery cable
  5. Fill the fuel tank with fuel. Install the fuel filler cap. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position to pressurize the system. Check the fuel system for leaks.

98 dodge ram 1500 Truck ran out of gas. It will start w/ starter fluid sprayed in filter but will not stay running.


Since the fuel pump is in the gas tank, your pump picked up debris, and dirt on the bottom of the tank and ran it into your fuel filter.
Replace fuel filter, and check fuel pump fuse.
Running your vehicle with less than a 1/4 tank of gas is hard on the pump, because the fuel pump uses gas to cool it.
Please let me know what you find.

the fuel filter is located under the car near the fuel tank. the fuel filter is a silver cylinder shape connected to the fuel lines by plastic clips. Squeeze clips to remove filter and be careful because gas will come out.

Where is the fuel filter on 2002 Dodge Intrepid? 2.7L engine


The answer is there isn't a fuel filter on a Dodge Intrepid. The 'filter' is the sock that covers the fuel pickup, and if needs to be changed it will require dropping the fuel tank.

My 98 dodge caravan has a loss of power and dies when stopping


Filter is mounted directly above the pump module on top of the fuel tank. You may have to drop it down a little bit to change it. Also check the fuel pressure with a good gauge while it's running poorly and see if it's out of spec.

Replacing fuel filter


Unfortunatly most dakotas have an inline fuel filter, its located in the gas tank because there not supposed to need regular maintenance or changing. Basically you have to drop your gas tank to get the fuel filter out.
