Ok there are two issues you could be having. One is the calving in the pump is plastic and may stick when it’s cold and the plastic shrinks. The other issues is the control solenoids may be weak on the one side and not closing all the way to keep the air in.

Do I have to take it in to fix?Thank you
Dodge Mechanic: R Clark,
 replied 1 year ago
I would recommend having it looked at as it could damage the bag on that side and that can get expencive. Also have them check for water or moister in the system.

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.
