anyone can respond thanks Chris
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 2 years ago

Great! Ok, after looking at those codes, I see that the fuel system went lean which is an indicator of possible fuel pump or an empty tank. How much fuel is indicated on the fuel gauge?

Tell me this: when you turn on the ignition switch, can you hear the fuel pump in the tank come on for about two seconds and then turn off?

i have not heard the fuel pump but again I am not sure what I am trying to hear for 2 seconds I did lean under the bed at the gas tank but heard nothing
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 2 years ago

It would be a soft whirring sound. Have someone turn the key on while you get your ear close to the tank. if you do not hear it, then try banging on the bottom of the tank with a hammer while cranking the engine. Sometimes that will get the pump to start running.

let me know,

Chris

What Customers are Saying:

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.
