You do not have to replace the fuel pump at a specific mileage.
I hate to speculate without physically inspecting the vehicle, but, my best solution here & now may be the fuel pump. Now, I would not go out & buy one before you had proper diagnosis. Here is one test, but you will need to have to experience the stall again, and then test to see if you have fuel pressure at the injectors. If you have no fuel pressure, replace the pump. Fuel filter issues do not "come & go", they stay, and your car would not run properly. Also, a fuel pump failure will not set a computer code on this particular model vehicle. Hope this helps..

SOURCE: i have 1990 chevy pickup 1500 4 wheel 350 eng.

It sounds like the engine is pulling fuel from the tank, and not replacing it with air, causing a vacuum to build in the tank. The vacuum, may build to the point that it resists the fuel pump's efforts to **** fuel from it. If the vacuum is sufficient, it may collapse the tank, or expand the fuel enough for the engine manifold vacuum to **** raw gas into the evaporative emissions control system, hence the cannister.

Replacing the fuel pump, and filter will both break this vacuum, and make it run well for a few more miles, until the vacuum builds again.

The tank is usually vented to relieve pressure and vacuum through the gas cap.

Basically, sounds like a bad gas cap.

Try driving with the cap loose or removed. If that fixes it, buy a new cap. Preferably a locking one, as the amount of fuel these trucks hold is pretty tempting to less than honest folks. My 1990 C2500 has a 34 gallon tank.

Coil?? with the other symptoms, how'd you come up with that?

then i would replace whats called the hall effect sensor its that black plastic plate you see when you take dist cap off. just pull rotor and lift up the sensor.dist cap is what holds it on.also under the sensor will be a stamped sheet metal piece that looks like the top of a castle wall. make sure its not loose on the shaft.if it is then new dist will be needed

Start not starting


it sounds like a fuel pump .remove the fuel inspection cap on the fuel rail at the top of the engine and make a pump presser check,must be around 45-65 psi, anything lower means a defected pump.another way
of checking a pump is banging on the fuel tank while having some body cranking the eng. if the eng fires up it means it is a pump.

Cummins diesel in 2001 Dodge is cutting out and mild surge. code#s are P0500,P0370 P1693


you have codes related to the pcm, transfer pump and a vehicle speed sensor. these could be related or all individual issues. related issued could be wiring, untill you start doing testing it will be hard to tell.
start cheap and test the speed sensor first, then you can clear the codes and continue on any codes come back.


Disconnect the PCM harness connector(s).
Disconnect the Vehicle Speed Sensor harness connector.
Note: Check connectors - Clean/repair as necessary.
Measure the resistance of the 5 Volt Supply circuit between the VSS harness
connector and the PCM harness connector.
Is the resistance above 5.0 ohms?

2001 dodge ram will crank but won't start like it's not getting fuel


When you turn your key to the on position only ( not the start position) listen very carefully to hear the electric fuel pump come on for a few seconds which is located in the gas tank. If you don't hear the winding noise of the fuel pump running...then most likely your fuel pump needs to be replaced, but first before replacing it I would spend the $10 - $15 dollars to replace the Fuel Pump Relay Module. You could get lucky and have it be the problem. Best wishes!

sounds like a fuel problem. listen near your fuel tank for the fuel pump buzz or whirring sound while someone turns on the the key. no sound no fuel no start. does not necessarily mean the fuel pump is bad, maybe just no power.

04 dodge diesel cuts out while driving at speed


Hi. I had the same problem on my 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins. I went to the dealer and they did a bunch of diagnostics and they replaced my fuel pump. At the same time they put in a retrofit kit that moved the fuel pump to the inside of the gas tank. I have not had the problem since. The cost was about $1,200, but my 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty covered it and I had to pay the $100 deductible.
