Question about 2002 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck

1 Answer

Hello we just purchased a 2002 Dodge Ram 3500 16 passanger Van. It has 158000 miles. We put gas into it as it was out and was sitting for a year. It sounds like it wants to start but will not. My husband said it does not seem to be getting a spark. Any clues?

If it sat for a year and the gas in the tank dried up the pump is gummed up and needs to be cleaned. If it had fuel injection the injectors will have the same problem. You may be asking how that applies to your question. There is a safety built into the system that will prevent the coil from firing if a problem is detected in the fuel pump or if the injectors don't pressurize.

did this occour suddenly? if you can get someone to turn the A/C on briefly while your looking under the bonnet and look at the A/C pump. if you dont know what one it is wait untill they turn it on and find which pulley stops turning. because it sounds to me like your A/C pump has seized and if it engages and the pulley stops turning that would confirm it. once you know you can still drive it just dont turn the A/C on untill you get the compresser replaced

have the fuel pressure and volume checked as if its out of range it can cause this type of problem,also if the fuel filter is plugged it can cause this as well.have a tech try to start it when cold with a scanner on it this may show what is happening or if there is a code in the computer.

Change trans fluid & filter. If you have someone do the work, have them flush the system to get all old fluid out. Sounds like a valve body issue and a fluid & filter change should solve the issue.

Stall upon running out of gas but won't start up again with gas


Remove the air cleaner and pour about a quarter cup of gasoline into the carburetor or throttle body. Do not stand near the engine when cranking it -- fire/small explosion hazard.

Ram van dies


sounds to me like the fuel pump is bad, when it warms up it dies, try to check this by filling the tank and running a while, then run the van with a near empty tank and see how it does. A full tank of gas should keep the fuel pump cool as it is surrounded by the liquid. I had a similar problem. when my tank got to about a quarter full (3/4 empty) the van would shut off after a short distance, then after sitting for a while would start up again get me a little farther then shut off again. i ended up changiung the fuel pump cost me almost $300. if this simple test shows no results the you got electrical problems, check distributor, and surrounding cables. good luck. also check your fuses could be dirty!
