Usually when this happens it is the fuel level sender. Occasionally it is the gauge, and once in a while it is the wiring somewhere in the fuel level sending system. The fuel level sender for most Dodge trucks can be purchased for about $90 and assuming that you do not have a lot of gas in the vehicle could be about 2-3 hours labor. Replacing the actual gauge is also timely but a new gauge could only cost about $20, and could be done on a week end afternoon with little to no experience. Checking the wiring (which I would fo just to save the time of changing stuff to find this out) only takes a fwe hours and could cost you the price of a digital multimeter, that you can get from your local parts store or Walmart. Keep me posted....

check your fuel pressure, should be 40lbs+ at idle. If you dont know how to do this, have a friend or a shop check it for you. I had same problem, no power at all would barely run ect,, turned out to be fuel pump.

you can get one cheap from a junkyard for same year and the colors will match for the wires.
if you know how to solder that is a help, will give you the best connection.

You will need to have the timing belt replaced. Depending on which engine you have, you will likely need a new belt tensioner as well. There was update to these as they failed frequently and caused the belt to come off. I am pretty sure this engine does not bend valves so you should be able to repair the belt problem and be good to go.

sounds like the fuel pump needs to be replaced. That's what happened to mine. Once I replaced the fuel pump it was good to go. Hope this helps.

I am having the same problem right now. However, to get key out of ignition, take out middle console, there you will have to turn car on, press on break, and mess with the shifter. If you do this then your button will be able to be pulled out of ignition. Reason it does that is there's a sensor saying your car is not in park although it is. As soon as your button pops out you should be ok. As for fixing the stuck in park problem, take out battery and spray transmission linkage down with WD-40. If that still doesn't work, check your break sensor.

On the left (drivers) side the dark green wire is the positive and the brown/red one is the negative (ground) On the right (passenger) side the purple wire is the positive and the dark blue/red is the negative. I hope this helps and good luck.

The instrument pod is most likely to blame. It could be caused by the body control module or the cable between the two because data is being sent between the two. I hope this helps.

It can only be two things. The fan or the sensor that tells the fan that the engine water is too hot. (My guess is that it is the latter... (Those fans each have their own sensor ....lol, I THINK)! The parts store will know. (Be ready for a flood of antifreeze when you change the sensor. Leave on the radiator cap to keep fluid loss at minimum and top it off with the pink or green stuff, whichever you use.

If the brake master cylinder is full with approved DOT 3 brake fluid and the vacuum line that attaches to the brake booster is in place and not leaking or disconnected at either end, check for leaking fluid on all 4 tires, if you find no fluid at the tires indicating a caliper is leaking then the problem is the master cylinder being bad.
