Did u hit the fuel shut off button to discharge the system? if you did plug it back in or push the button down. pump is electric so it doesnt need primed. also try the fuel filter. it may need replacing as well

2004 dodge 2500 ram diesel


I'm not familiar with that particular vehicle, but most diesel systems have a primer under the hood. You will need to pump that slowly until you feel some resistance. That will push fuel to the engine. The other pump may not be able to push fuel through until the system is primed.

If that doesn't get you running I would suspect a clogged fuel filter. Most Dodge vehicles have one on the frame. Just follow the fuel lines until you find it. There may also be one attached to the pump primer.

Changing that filter would my next action. Whether the pump is in the tank or added on outside the tank, you may still need to prime the system after the filter is replaced. Air in the line may cause it to stall, just reprime and start again.

Good luck.

Tries to turnover but wont start


Check to see if you're getting spark at the plugs. If not, try changing the ignition module. If that doesn't fix it, then you possibly have a fuel delivery problem. Check the pressure at the fuel rail. If it's too low, or even non-existent, then replace the fuel pump (mounted inside the fuel tank). Be sure to replace the pump strainer and fuel filter, too, if you change the pump

I have a 2001 ford taurus and it ran out of gas. It wont start after i put gas in it


  • Assuming you put enough gas in the tank to turn the car over (2 gallons is a good start) and assuming the gas cap is on good and tight then it sounds like in drying up the tank you put all the containments sitting at the bottom of your gas tank into the fuel pump sock and it is now clogged. Changing the fuel pump is that fix.
  • You may want to check the fuel filter too first before the whole dropping the gas tank to get to the fuel pump scene. Its possible the fuel filter has got really clogged and will not let fuel pass. They can go just like that if it has been several thousand miles since last changing it. The fuel filter for this vehicle is on the passenger side rail, about midway, on the undercarriage of the car. The fuel line coming from the fuel pump leads right to it.
  • Of course check the battery connections too.

Regards, Tony

you might have to clean the tank because the pump might have problems as well the injectors could be clogged or it wasnt only water in gas if you are sure no sugar was added in tank i would check the fuel pump just the same if it is easy to remove

have you changed the fuel filter yet? They do clog up. That or you may have trash in your tank, and the screen is clogged. Hopefully its the fuel filter. The pump screen is located in the tank, and that means dropping the tank. hope this helps

Wont start. need to know how to get to fuel pump?


The fuel pump is located inside the tank. Getting to it to replace it will require the tank to be removed. The pump is generally located toward the top of the fuel tank.

I hope this is enough to get you started! :)

I have a 97 Dodge Avenger ES 2.5 liter which does not seem to be getting fuel. The fuel pump primes when it is turned on but it will not start. Any ideas?


the regulator is bad or clogged fuel screen or just leaking/loosing fuel prime. try to key it up a few times to build prime before starting. no matter u need to replace the pump if its not holding 55psi at the fuel rail.
