Customer Question
Engine Quit Running Suddenly...

Engine Quit Running Suddenly as I was parking in a parking lot

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

120,000 Roughly, and it is an automatic, 5.9 Engine

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

2001

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

If I can determine the failure, which I Expect is in the ignition system, as it does nothing when I attempted a re-start. Battery appears to be good.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The tow truck operator suggested it may be a component in the fuse box, there are 3 larger fuse type components.

That's correct
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 4 months ago

Ok, no starter at all.

Do all of the lights work inside the vehicle and outside the vehicle?

Is this a Dakota or a ram?

I do not wish to contact you via phone. It appears the call to you may cost more than the repair itself. Thanks anyhow.

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.
