Not bad as long as the fuel level is low, you will need to drop the fuel tank and remove the sending unit, the pump is part of the sending unit,to remove the unit remove the top lock ring, this is a plastic ring on top of the tank that hold the unit , hope this helps,I have a 2004 dakota. - 6a943a8.gif

Not to hard,it's located in the fuel tank,first check to see if you have power going to the pump,if you do check for fuel coming out,if none replace fump,if you don't have power going to the pump check fuses and relays,also a quick way to tell if it's not getting fuel is spray some brake cleaner in the throttle body and see if it starts.

Check to see if you have fuel to the rail, if not you have to reset your fuelpump safety switch or a bad fuel pump.

If you have fuel, check your spark.
No spark check your timing belt.

I have a 1994 Dodge Dakota pickup. Its not starting. Turns over well but dose not seem to get fuel.


Could be fuel pump issue, pressure regulator, fuel check valve, gas filter. Check all connections for soundness and conductivity.

Pump the tank dry of the fuel using the electric fuel pump, just jump the fuel pump relay to get the pump to run and remove the supply line to the injectors and attach a hose. Use extreme caution around gasoline, no sparks, ground the container to the truck.

My 2000 dodge dakota wont start. I replaced the battery and still wont start. The lights are strong and it turns but wont start. What could be wrong?


Two basics; fuel supply and ignition. Neither of these are difficult to check but for in-hand assistance, a service manual is a good investment and we like Haynes:

My dodge dakota truck will not start. It has power we tried to pop the clutch too.


do you mean the truck won`t start and run or do you mean it won`t turn over with the key.if it won`t turn over with the key the you may have a starter problem.if you mean won`t start then it could be the fuel pump not working.with someone cranking the motor you should hear the fuel pump running with the gas cap off and listening at the filler neck.or hear it running listening under the truck at the gas tank.if you don`t hear it then you can hit the tack sharply with your hand or a rubber hammer,it hear the pump start to run then the fuel pump needs replacing.if not check the fuses under the dash and under the hood.if they are good then it may be the pump relay in the relay box under the hood and it should be marked on the box or lid.

Do you have spark?
Do you have fuel?
Which are you missing?
TIP.A quick check for spark.........give it a spray of starting fluid....if it runs....you've got spark.
No spark usually means......a bad coil or ignition module on the 3.9.
No fuel is usually caused by a bad fuel pump.
