Customer Question
Hi, I have a 1991...
Hi, I have a 1991 Dodge Stealth with the V6 DOHC engine that cranks but will not start. It turns over normally and I think the timing should be fine. I cannot hear the fuel pump which is strange. Also, I am told it needs an ECM and it's already been made free and is by the centre console. How do I confirm that it is the ECM that is the problem before getting another?

Try disconnect the fuel line first and see if fuel comes out when cranking vehicle.

I opened it on the return line right after the regulator and cranked the engine. No fuel came out.
Dodge Mechanic: CurtisE, Mechanic replied 8 months ago
Ok. Gain access to the fuel pump at the top of the fuel tank and check for power and earth to the pump. Let me know which is missing.

Dodge Mechanic: CurtisE, Mechanic replied 8 months ago
There should only be two to the pump

There is a few going into the assembly. I did not physically take the pump out. But I figured out which ones from a diagram and energized and grounded the pump and it then definitely pushed out fuel. So I need a helper to find out what whether there is ground or positive voltage when the engine cranks. Apparently on a Stealth the fuel pump only works when it sees the engine turning? Is this true? In other words, it doesn't prime like most cars when you turn on the ignition.

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.
