Hello and welcome to just answer. That is a classic example of a fuel delivery problem. You said you looked at the filter, did you replace it? Chris

i replaced it 2 weeks ago so when i looked at it today it was still good
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
you still there
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 year ago
Ok I see. Then you have a lift pump that is failing. Do you know if your truck still has the stock plastic lift pump mounted to the back of the fuel filter or has it been upgraded to the in tank style? Chris

if it atatchs to the back of the housing where the fuel inlet is then no , but there is something on the font of the housing that has two wires hooked to it

is a lift pump basicaly a fuel pump
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 1 year ago
Ok, then you have the in tank style. That pump is probably failing or there is a restriction in the pick up screen in the tank. You can test it by removing the supply line going into the injection pump. Place it into a clean container and then "bump" the starter with the key and leave the key on. The fuel should flow from the hose and into the container

If the pump does not produce about 46 ML in 10 seconds, then it will need to be replaced, and yes it is basically a fuel pump. 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.
