    i had gone over your answer with an experienced individual and yoiur directions were including a lot of needless work such as removing grill etc. After careful evauluation I could not use your recommendations.

    Hi,

     

    Sorry you couldnt use it. The directions I gave you were Chrysler factory directions. Because I have no clue has to someone's skill levels when giving them directions, I provide the complete directions, no shortcuts, as some people are not up to handling shortcuts as far as their skillsets, so I find it better to give people factory directions just to make sure they have all information available.

    I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
