Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
I would start with installing a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel system and monitor the fuel pressure on the new pump when the problem is occurring. Normal fuel pressure on a properly working fuel pump needs to be right at 46 to 50 PSI, anything less then 46 would indicate the new pump is defective. Check this for me and post back and we can work from there if need be.

I have done that. Pressure is at 40 psi
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Okay then with 40 PSI you should not be running out of fuel, has the computer been checked for fault codes and if so are they any?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
It has not yet. But check engine light is on now. Wasn't before these changes.
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Okay lets get the computer scanned and that should give us some idea what is failing, post back with any and all fault codes and I will advise from there.

It is pulling code 24.
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
The code 24 indicates you have a problem with the TP (throttle postions ) sensor.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

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.
