Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, can you remove the fuel line on the fuel rail and just turn the key to run and tell me if fuel comes out of the line?
When you lift the engine cover off, its on both sides of the upper intake manifold. One side will have the fuel line going to it, I believe the right towards the rear of the rail.
Ok, can you get a test light? It's most likely a bad fuel pump but to verify, I'd like you to lift up the rear seat bottom and check for power at the fuel pump when you turn the key to run. It's a dark blue/orange wire at the fuel pump module on the left side. It will have power for about 2 seconds after you turn the key to run.
If no test light is available, you can tap moderately with a hammer on the top of the left fuel pump (don't smash it and break the plastic) and sometimes that will temporarily get the pump to run again. Just make sure you hook the line back up to the rail in case it does come back to life.
Have a 2nd person crank the engine while you are tapping on the pump too, I left that out, sorry.
If you get a test light and check for that power, that will verify the fuel pump is bad. You'll hear the pump come on if its working (which it sounds like its not). If it lights the test light on the blue/orange wire and its not running, the pump is bad.
Anything else I can help you with regarding this issue?
