Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck

2 Answers

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel and recently replaced the fuel pumps and APP Sensor along with the Hydro boost. Now it hesitates like it does not have a first of second gear and the RPM's rev up to 3 and I can let up on the throttle and it'll seem to kick into gear but then rev back up again very shortly after i resume once i get up to about 30 all the rest of the gears seem to function well. what's going on now with my dodge?

    I had a professional at a dodge dealer ship install it so i assume it has been adjusted properly.

Hi!!
I suggest to take the vehicle back to the dealer, they do make mistakes. Explain the new problems you're having and have them recheck the installation of the pumps and sensor. There was a substantial amount of work performed on the vehicle and I don't think anybody is going to give you an exact diagnostic without performing some tests and inspect the vehicle's engine.
Good Luck!! Please, keep me posted!!

Ok, so APP stands for Accelerator Pedal Position sensor, and just wondering if you have installed and adjusted it to within specs for your vehicle....as the symptoms that you are describing are leading to this scenario

    OK, did this happen after you had this work done, or was it some time after that it started to happen ????? just working on the timeline

    so, it did not happen right away, until just recently, couple of days...(2-3 weeks after the repair)....curious why the repair in the first place, why did you replace the hydroboost and app sensor and fuel pumps ???

2000 dodge ram diesel 2500 . What is a fuel injection pump mechnical failure? a fuel valve feedback circuit?


This usually happens when the lift pump gets worn and fuel pressure drops below 7lbs and the injection pump has to work harder by pulling in the fuel and will destroy the pump,your is probably a vp44 fuel injection pump it needs replaced and they are expensive 1200.00+ but also change the lift pump or change to a fass fuel system,if the lift pump went out and you replace the injection pump it will ruin it in a short time.
The injection pump is not an easy job to change or for a novice mechanic as it has to be set in time with the engine at top dead center,and then the whole fuel system needs to be bleed of air.
