Question about 2003 Dodge Dakota Club Cab

1 Answer

Slow start due to fuel pump not holding pressure. Fuel pump has been replaced twice and still have the same problem.

Changed #3 fuel injector (per computer), crank shaft position sensor, cam shaft position sensor, smoke test shows no leaks, pressure test was fine.

    The fuel pump has to prime everytime the truck has been turned off for more than 5 mins.It takes about 25-30 seconds of the truck trying to turn over before it starts. Two mechanics have hooked it up to a fuel pressure gauge. You can watch the fuel pressure drop really fast when the truck is turned off.

SOURCE: Fuel pump will not run, 96 Neon 2.0 SOHC

Personally I wouldnt bother tracing the wire as it is probably not worth your time, and just run a constant 12v from the battery to the relay on like 10ga wire. There is probably a short somewhere in the system which can be a real headache to find.

Also it may sound dumb, but check your fuses, and the fusible links under the hood. Chances are that they are all fine though, especially if you have dash lights.

SOURCE: car has no spark or injector pulse(new ecm,crank sensor)

Check the fuse for the injectors, some vehicles have the injectors and coil running on the same circut, at the same time check the fuse for the ignition.

SOURCE: 1998 dodge neon. Engine tries to start , but won't catch.

well it sounds to me as if the timing bet as jumped its time,mabe not much a tooth or two. but thats all it would take to make the car want to start, but it wont let the car fire properly.

SOURCE: 92 dodge 318 truck engine runs til you stop, then stalls when put

Then i think i'd be dumping some soapy water on the intake gaskets checking for leaks. ANd wiggle the **** out of all vacuum hoses. ( you probably did that) And if there aren't any, your cam could be tired. You got a tough one there. Hard to figure with a keyboard.

Keeps shuting down while driving, then after a few minutes it will start


I have to ask, how long since a tune-up?
Are there any applicable trouble codes?
I saw what you replaced, didn't see any testing? With intermittent issues, have to do testing when problem is ongoing. When problem is ongoing, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check fuel injector pulse.

I have a 94 chevy s10 with a misfire that's about to drive me crazy. I've changed plugs, wires, ignition coils three times with different types and brands no change. So I continued with the ignition...


If the compression test was good, that takes care of most mechanical things.
If you know for a fact the plug is firing under pressure, that leaves a vac leak or a fuel injector problem.
You didn't say what size the engine is or if it is MFI, so I will assume it is.
Depending on when the miss happens, it could be a vac leak, including the EGR valve, or an injector that is not getting a ground signal from the engine computer.
Do you know which cylinder is not providing power ?
Does it happen all the time, or only when the engine is under a load ?

Why my 97' f-250 7.3 powerr stroke keeps dieing while idling


The power stroke engine has several things that will cause this problem #1 crank shaft sensor AKA cam shaft sensor on crank shaft located on passenger side of engine near crank shaft pulley # 2 IPC sensor Injection pressure control if has oil in sensor replace it & wiring pigtail .#3 high pressure oil pump not up to par. #4 injection pressure regulator solenoid they get sticky. with a good scanner that has FORD enhanced software you can check all of these without leaving the drivers seat and perform running tests on injectors and test the ficm module interface with the pcm. Fuel Injection Control Module & Power Control Module.

Cylinders 1 and 3 misfiring on 2.4 Liter 97 chevy malibu


code p 0300 is random/ multiple cylinders ----misfires detected ===causes ---spark plugs ---HT lead/s---injector/s---ignition coil/s---low compression---wiring
he has changed a lot for nothing
a 5 year old engine can have a lot wrong with it --so new out of a crate is no guarantee
most misfires are from injector problems
it could be a loose valve seat insert so have a compression test done if moving the injectors to new locations doesn't move the misfire

Hi 1989 celebrity 2.8 started to chug a little at first put new plugs ,wires, idle silinoid , new coil packs what next ?died in front of the house smells like lots of gas oh one plug looks like new maybe...


SOUND LIKE FAULTY FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR OR LEAKING FUEL INJECTORS.CHECK FOR LEAKING FUEL INJECTORS.HOOK FUEL PRESSURE TESTER TO TEST PORT WHICH IS THE SCRADER VALVE.WHEN YOU TURN IGNITION TO THE ON POSITION ENGINE OFF.FUEL PRESSURE ON FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE SHOULD HOLD STEADY 40 - 46 PSI. IF FUEL PRESSURE BLEEDS OFF SLOWLY YOU HAVE LEAKING CLOGGED DIRTY FUEL INJECTORS. COULD BE FAULTY CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR. CODE SCAN CAR FIRST TO SEE WHAT FAULT CODE COMES UP BEFORE BUYING NEW PARTS.
