When I put the new pump in, I cycled the.power on the ignition 3 times to prime the lines. I gave it one shot of starting fluid. It started up with hesitation. It ran for 10 minutes and them died. I have repeated the.process multiple times. It is actually trying to start so it has to be getting some fuel, although I can not hear the fuel pump running.

Where did you get the pump? DO you have a fuel pressure gauge?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
My background is that I am an HVAC mechanic, so I am fairly skilled. I got the pump online. It's brand new with a warranty. I don't have a fuel pressure guage, but I'm sure I can get one at orileys.
Dodge Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I would start with a pressure test. Off brand pumps often do not perform to manufacturers specs and many shops will not install them as they are more trouble than they are worth.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
What sort of pressure should I be looking for? As I said before, the truck fired up with as ease and ran for ten min or so the first crank with the new pump... after that it's trying to fire, but just can't or wont. I have heard about bleeding injector lines as well...
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
where is the best place to get a pressure reading, we both know how hard it is to get to the top of the pump....
Dodge Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

which engine do you have?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Dodge Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

It will be easiest to check under hood at fuel rail. It may have a test port depending on engine. You are looking for a minimum of 58PSI

Dodge Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Does not look like it has a test port. Will still be easiest at engine or by removing filter. 59 PSI should be minimum. Also after key is turned off the pressure should hold steady and not drop below 35PSI for 30 minutes

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I was under the assumption that the fuel filter was built into the fuel pump
Dodge Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

It may be the info is not real clear on that

I have rented a fuel pressure test kit and I will be testing it in about 4 o'clock I do need to find a place to test it at I'm not I'm not quite sure it's actually trying to start so it's getting some fuel
Dodge Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

OK. The place to access is under the hood. the filter is in tank on this one. You will need a T for the pressure tester. remove the line and put T in place.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
There is no pressure at the test port on the rail.... there is some fuel in there, but no pressure..... I can't find any fuses labeled fuel pump either
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No pressure... I am getting 10 volts to the harness on the big black wire and the orange/red wire the 2 big wires... but the power doesn't go off after 3 seconds either....
Dodge Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes the 3 seconds is the relay working. No worries. Check for a ground at the connector for the pump. Otherwise it is probably a bad pump.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Hey Sam,
Yes I checked for ground at the harness, and there is continuity to ground... I'm gong to get with the supplier and order another pump today.... that was a lot of work to do by myself out on the ground, just to have to do it again! Fortunately the tank is pretty much all the way out now, so it won't be as crazy....
Dodge Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

My advice would be an OEM pump. You may get real good at this job.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The OEM is nearly 4 and a half times as much..... I have heard a few horror stories about having to change a pump multiple times.... is there any truth to that?
Dodge Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

yes there is. The last aftermarket pump in a chrysler got an OEM pump after 11 aftermarket pumps. never again. but that is me

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Well I will give it one more try, and then go to oem if need be. I'm a full time student, so im on a very limited budget.... and of course the truck was towed 20 miles away to my parents....
Dodge Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I understand your logic. I am just advising.

I have a buddy whose parents own a mobile mechanic service, which he worked at for several years, and they won't do fuel pumps any more
Dodge Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I do a lot of them. I just will not use aftermarket on many brands. Unless customer pays labor every time. What brand pump did you get?
