tried starting fluid starts for a second then stalls
Dodge Mechanic: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 2 months ago

O.k., this sounds like it was just coincidence when hooking up the ac pressure gauge and is a fault with the fuel pump failing. If it starts on starting fluid this usually indicates a lack of fuel.

I would have the fuel pressure tested with a fuel pressure test gauge to see if fuel pressure is low. If it is then the power and ground signals need to be tested at the fuel pump to make sure it has the proper power and ground signals. If there is low or no pressure and you have the correct power and ground signals at the pump then the fuel pump needs to be replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above). You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question. I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks, Pete

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.
