Firstly have u filled up with fuel recently ? Take a sample of fuel make sure u havnt put petrol in by accident seen it done hundreds of time or that u havnt run out of fuel . If that's ok then it could be the fuel metering valve in the pump this will cause incorrect fuel pressures most diesels need 250 bar of fuel pressure to start a blocked fuel filter cauld also cause a non start

    fuel product good, it's a gas engine. is there trip switch that a hard bump into a driveway could trip out the pump. I've seen this in older models for when you have an accident it stops the flow of fuel.

check fuses and the fuel pump relay if good have someone turn key in the on position with key off while you listen for the fuel pump to kick on if you dont hear anything pound on the tank with hand while the person turns it over. you might jar it to come on. if not check power to the fuel pump. Also make sure you have gas in it if questionable on how much put 1 gallon in just to be on the safe side. No I am not poking fun I see the simplest things kick our(technicians) behinds

What's your question? Replaced timing belt on 2001 dodge stratus 2.4 liter and still wont start


Have you checked for spark on a plug wire with the engine cranking? If no spark, the problem is in the ignition system- the ignition coils, the ignition control module, the plug wires and plugs, the crankshaft position sensor, and the PCM-all are parts of the ignition system. Don't replace without testing- it will save you money.

Also check the fuel pressure at the engine, or at least verify the fuel pump is getting gas up to the engine. If you turn the key to on, not start, the fuel pump should turn on for 2 seconds to put pressure in the line and in the fuel rail where the fuel injectors are. Do you see a valve on the fuel rail, it may have a cap screwed on it. This is the test port to hook up a fuel pressure gauge and check fuel pressure. Autozone and others loan or rent fuel pressure gauges.

I have air in my fuel rail and don't know why....Help please.


presumable this is a diesel in which case the air will be coming from a leak in the line /filter/ or pick-up in the tank (low fuel level)

Where is the outlet to test the fuel pump on a 2005 dodge stratus


I believe you have to put a "T" in-line to test the Dodge Stratus fuel Pressure.

If there is a Port, it will be located on the Fuel Rail. Do not test the EVAP Port.

Car want start


You should hear the pump in the tank buzz on for a couple of seconds when you turn key to ON. It will come on and pressurize the lines, and then shut off if the computer doesn't get a cranking signal from the engine. Do you hear the hum or buzz from the gas tank? If so, pump is working alright. If no sound, then the pump has either failed, or the power to it has been interrupted.
If the pump is working, and you know the fuel filter is good, you should have fuel under pressure at the fuel rail on the engine. The only thing left for fuel to get into the cylinders, is for the injector circuit to work and pulse the injectors. Post back if you ned to test the injector circuit-very easy with a test light.
Good luck.

My 200 dodge stratus was running fine i shut it of and when i tryed to restart it it acts like it is out of gas


Dodge fuel pumps are notorious for going out without any warning. I would suggest that you check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail and if no fuel..check the fuel relay and then the fuel pump replacement. I would process of eliminate in that order.

My 2000 chevy S10 wont start I changed the battery and it ran fine for 2 days now it will turn over but won't start


Check Fuel Pressure. First turn key to on position (without starting) and listen for the fuel pump motor. If no motor sound, your fuel pump is not working. Check fuel pump fuse and relay. If fuel pump works, check for pressure at the fuel rail (schrader valve on fuel rail for pressure testing). If no pressure, or not enough, fuel filter might be clogged or fuel pressure regulator may not be working properly. IF fuel is not the problem, start checking electrical, such as ignition control and proper spark to plugs.

Driving on highway at 65 mph 2005 dodge caravan started to buck and slow down, then would run fine for a few miles then repeat the same thing, did this for 35 or 40 miles. arrived near home and at low...


Sound like the fuel filter or the fuel pump or both at fault. Check the fuel pressure while the engine is cold, to do this turn on the key switch just long enough for the fuel pump to come on and then off. Turn the key off and look under the hood on the fuel rail for the test port with a valve stem cap, remove cap and using a rag and small screwdriver cover the screwdriver while mashing down on the valve stem inside test port. If you have alot of pressure coming out then it's ok. If not then the pump and filter is the problem. Fuel pressure should be around 49 psi. Hope this will help you.

How do I know if the fuel pump is no longer working on my 2005 dodge magnum


u check the fuel pressure, u can also hear the pump (humming noise) when the key is cycled on and off, The fuel pressure test port is on the top of the engine in the fuel supply rail to the injectors, you will need a special test gage to test it.
