Customer Question
2011 4.7 GAS EMGINE...

2011 4.7 GAS EMGINE. BEGAN SEVERAL WEEK AGO TO REQUIRE MORE THAN ONE ON-OFF OF KEY TO GET ENOUGH FUEL TO FIRE. PROBLEM HAS WITHIN LAST THREE DAYS TO WORSEN. YESTERDAY, REQUIRED "PRIMING" THROUGH AIR INTAKE. RUNS FINE AFTER STARTINS. ????

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual? What confuses you?

NOT GAS HOG. WHEN FIRING AFTER SEVERAL ON-OFF, REVS FIRST, THEN IMMEDIATELY DROPS RPM, THEN GAINS TO ABOUT 800.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '11 Dodge?

RAM 1500. 4.7 ENGINE

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

YES. NOTHING.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** for using justanswer.

You need to connect a fuel pressure gauge to diagnose this, and a scan tool to check for codes. The most common problem is a faulty fuel pressure regulator or fuel pump assembly. The dealer may also need to check for any refashes that are available for the computer.

Please reply to this if you need more help and we can continue this conversation. This does not have to be my only answer. If you are satisfied with my service, please rate at the top of the screen. Rating does not close out your question. Remember, sometimes it is difficult to completely diagnose your vehicle without being there, but I will try to give you the best answer I can.

Please Rate 5 stars. If you feel you need to rate less than that let me know so I can help more.

Thank you.

CodePO522-oil pressure sensor circuit low. What exactly does that mean?
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

That could just mean you need to replace the oil pressure switch or it could mean you have an issue with the wiring harness or the pcm.

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.
