Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** *****. I have a 2002 dodge ram B1500 van. It cranks but wont start. I have fuel pressure so it is not the fuel pump.

I tried putting gas down intake.
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 2 years ago

And it still does not run?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Nope
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, then the engine is either flooded or it is simply out of time. It is as simple as that.

Unless of course your not giving me the correct information..

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
What else would you like to know
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 2 years ago

The truth. If your telling me the truth and all the information you have giving me is accurate, then chances are the engine is out of time. Have you checked engine compression? If so, what is it at?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, if you have not yet checked engine compression and verified that the ignition timing lines up correctly, then these are your next steps. I am glad I can help. Have a good night.

I want a refund. I do not want a membership and I am not satisfied with the answer I got. I also noticed that I was charged more than was stated on the home page. NOT very professional at all. Please refund my card immediately or I will report this to visa

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.
