Disconnect the quick-connect fuel line fitting fuel gauge into the fuel line using the appropriate T-fitting and adapters. I recommend getting the fuel pressure checked if you want to be sure that's what it is. Look for leaks in the fuel line. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help! Checked the fuse, swapped the relay with another, still nothing. Turn the ignition key off. The test is simply to unplug it. Lol Take a scrub brush and scrub under the broken nails.

I took it to my mechanic and he knew immediately what was wrong and said he had already repaired 3 or 4 Dodges with the same problem. If the gauge reads 46-50 psi 317-345 kPa fuel pressure is correct and no further testing is necessary. Installed new pump car tyrned then died. Crank the engine a couple times after it dies to relieve more of the fuel pressure 3.
The failure mileage was 110,000. ChuchoRally answered 2 years ago Check for fuel pressure at the rail. Aug 10, 2010 You need to do a fuel pressure check. If not, the wiring between the relay and the fuel pump is faulty. Attach a fuel pressure tester, it should be around 50lbs. Also, a fuel problem does not always mean that the fuel pump in a Dodge is bad. Once the ground terminal is identified, jump the terminal that had power with the key off to the terminal that was not grounded and had no power using a jumper wire.
If it is back ordered nationally, will it constitute recall? If no pressure soething went wring with the fuel pump installation. All vehicles now use an electrical fuel pump to deliver fuel under high pressure to the fuel injectors and the best way to diagnose this fuel pump is with a fuel pressure gauge. Can I ask why do you think it started up right away with the new relay and ran for a couple minutes and then quit? May 30, 2012 2002 Dodge Caravan Fuel Filter Replacement Procedure 1. I believe that I will replace the part tomorrow, I can't give it back now so I might as well try it now, then if it still doesn't work, I'll give the fuel pressure thing a try.

You can guess where I'm going here, but I could not get the van to fire. I realize it is a pain. I have been fighting same problem for 6 months. Zero pressure at the rail. Anyway, I just wanted to contribute for first timers like myself that the car may not fire right after you get that pump in.
Then, start the engine and let it to run until it stalls. On the next cycle of turning the ignition key from off to crank the vehicle should start 6. If you do have proper fuel pressure, you will need to test spark at the plugs and wires. There were no holes in the gas tank and the plastic cap was not broken, it had simply popped off leading to this potentially disasterous problem. It's made of metal and has two lines entering it near the top. I can help you through it, but I really need you to check the pump pressure before we replace any other parts.
Someone said it might be the crank sensor is there a way to bypass it? Thanks a million Marion P. Wondering if I was doing something wrong, I was just holding on the hot and neg pins while I had someone turn the car over. Did you check the little hose attached to the fuel pump which connects to the plastic assembly? I sprayed carb cleaner in the air intake and the van started up, so I got spark. Once the vehicle is running, the password relearn is complete. A fuel pressure regulator helps provide constant fuel supply while driving.
Start by verifying that the Dodge has a fuel problem. If pressure is 5 psi 34 kPa higher than recorded pressure replace the fuel filter. Allow the key to return to the on position. What is your opinion and shouldnt that map being unplugged set a code? I went and disconnected mine and kinda wanted to start, but not really. They also like to replace the serpentine belt tensioner when the only problem is the belt.
