Customer Question
Went to leave started...

Went to leave started right up then it died like it was out of gas but I know it has a half tank in it and now it wont start up. It cranks over.

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

No gas hog and started normal until today

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

2006 Dodge Ram 1500

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

Yes if I can find the problem. Done nothing yet other than tried to start it.

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

Nope thats about it

Okay, so we need to check a few things first to find exactly what is wrong. Check fuel pressure with a gauge and check spark at the plugs with a spark tester.

You can get these tools at most parts stores to do these tests.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron

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.
