Replaced the fuel pump on my 97 dakota w/ 22 gal. tank. Will crank and start,but runs rough for several seconds then dies. This only happens after I pour fuel down throttle body. Fuse and relay for pump checked good but I can't find out anything about the regulator. Any suggestions??

Using excessive fuel cleaner can damage injectors and the fuel pump - sounds like your problem is the fuel pump bearings, and you will probably have to have it replaced.

Possibly fuel pump. can you here the pump buzz with key on? hold key to start & have someone hit bottom of fuel tank (where pump is) If start = fuel pump. There aren't many things that will make a car not run. You need to check for fuel, spark, airflow 1st.

1990 dodge dakota with a 3.9l well die while in motion but dosen't do it all the time


The key is to figure out if you're losing spark,fuel, or both.Next time it quits,see if if you smell raw fuel at the tailpipe.(this would mean ignition issue).If not,you may be losing the crank signal.If it happens while your moving,you may be able to recreate it sitting still.Try starting it up and wiggling connectors,wires,etc.Also try thumping sensors lightly to see if this will make it happen(use a high tech tool,like an old mop handle!).This is simply a way of attempting to make the condition occur like it would over a bump or rough surface.I figured out an intermittent miss on a 2.0 liter Turbo Grand Am by doing this(several techs at several dealers had replaced an insane amount of stuff trying to fix it,including our own shop foreman!).All of that for a broken injector wire!

Yes there are two fuel pumps of there are two fuel tanks.
One in each tank.
I assume you tried both tanks?
Best way to diagnose, put fuel in both tanks, and check each one.
The fuel pump relay in under the hood on the relay bank driver side fender.
You can provide power there on the lug going to the fuel pump. So, make sure the tank selector is working properly by setting the selector on the left tank, then turning the key to on, you should hear the pump come on for a couple seconds. Then do the same for the right tank. You need to make sure that the same pump is not coming on. Listen to each side. If that works, then the relay is OK too, and you have ruled out the pumps. Then check the valve that switches the tanks, see if there is any debris in it, or if it is even switching tanks.

Also check your fuel pressure at the fuel injector rail.

97 chrysler town & country dies while driving will only start when in park, runs fine but dies without warning and will restart in park???


Well first it should only restart in park or nuetral, any check engine light on? May be fuel pump if not. Listen for pump running in fuel tank. Should run at key on for a few seconds. If check engine light on, it should be scanned for codes, possible crank sensor

Truck stalls at 45 mph,gas runs out


sounds like the fuel pump is plugged up. measure the fuel pressure if you can. also would disconnect the fuel filter,and crank it for a few seconds ,draining the fuel into a clear container to see if it is contaminated.banging on the tank with a piece of wood may dislodge some stuff too.never run below 1/4 tank with an electric pump,as it uses the fuel to cool the pump.
