Customer Question
I have a 2002...

I have a 2002 dodge 2500 diesel, at times it starts up then shuts down shortly afterward. Like running its self out of fuel.I have also noticed when this problem started my headlights only would be just bearly on ( orange glow ) like power was back feeding with out the switch on. what I have tried so far put a new up lift pump on , removed the aftermarked remote start unit . when I did both of these it run fine for a day then started all over . all so it seem to do it when I don't plug in the block heater at night . The temp is only in the low thirdies . any ideas Eric

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.
