05 Durango wont crank,

I helped a neighbor, she had a dodge van. She thought the fuel pump was bad, it had set up for months. I noticed the fuel pump and A/C relay were the same. I swapped them out and the van cranked. Just a thought could it be the fuel pump relay.

Hello You will have to reset your fuel pump switch located passenger side right foot kick panel when you press it it should stay down if this does not work your probably looking at a fuel pump not working.

Ran out of gas and now it wont start, turns over but wont start? what do we do. Also had the transmission replaced in Dec 09 and before that and after none of the gauges worked whats the problem

Your unit comes with gas or diesel so need to know which one each one has separate ways to fix the issue. If it's gas you have to prime the system first before getting it to run. To do this simply hold fuel pedal down half way then turn engine to the run position, listen to see if you here fuel pump humming in the fuel tank for 2 to 3 seconds if it does keep turning the key to off then to run about 10 times once the system is primed a trained ear may here the difference in the sound of the pump but try starting it with pedal half way down and crank engine for 5 seconds should start up right away. if not repeat procedure again. If it still does not run then hold fuel pedal all the way to the floor and crank the engine over for 10 seconds, this shuts fuel off if you have flooded the engine now wait for five minutes and repeat first step second time. If it still does not start then you need to replace the fuel filter as you have collapsed the fuel sock or the fuel filter is plugged. If after you replace fuel filter then you would need to do a fuel pump test. Also if you have a security system and killed the battery you count have security system that needs to be reset. That information for resetting I won't give out in public domain, call local mechanic or dealer for instructions. As for the rest of your problem need more information and I work on one issue at a time as not to confuse you or me. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

How do I change the fuel filter in an '01 Express Van? It is a 5.7L V8, plenty of crank, won't turn over...intermittent. Problem seems worst when trying to restart on a hot day within 30 minutes or so of...

I believe that the fuel filter for this model is located under the van on the driver's side, inside of the frame rail, just below the driver's door. The filter is connected to the fuel lines by either threaded in lines or clips. When you go to your parts dealer, get a good look at the filter so that not only will you know what your looking for to replace, but also to know what tools maybe needed to do the job. The parts guy can get you the right tools. Nothing like a good excuse to buy more tools! If this repair doesn't solve your issue, try getting under the van and have someone turn the key to start while you listen for the buzz of the fuel pump from under the fuel tank. If you don't hear it, make sure the van can't move and tap on the center, bottom of the fuel tank with a rubber mallet while they crank the engine over. If it starts, you probably need a fuel pump. A bad fuel filter and/or a bad fuel pump will not turn on your check engine light. Good luck!
