If not disconect battery, drop fuel tank should be four star bolts use floor jack to drop tank just like you would the transmission. Can you give me a list of detailed instructions on how i can replace the pump and filter please? Hi Allen, Check to be sure both positive and negative battery connections are tight and free of corrosion. My mechanic flaked on me and my uncle would not be able to help for almost a month, but i need my van to get to work in a few days. It has two cylindrical pieces on top that are yellowish almost brassy in appearance. The tank… Check the engine sensors. You have an electric fuel pump located in the fuel tank and is combined with the fuel guage sending unit. Be careful dealing with gasoline it is needless to say flammable and dangerous.
I called my uncle who is a mechanic and he had me pour gasoline into the big round thing i forgot what it was called when you remove the center console from the inside he said to open it up and pour gasoline in it. You may also need to apply heat to them but be careful. A magnetic socket will help, because you won't be able to see yourself putting the bolts back on to hold it in. Disconnect negative cable from battery. Yes it is that simple. Fairly common on the Caravan. Will take about two hours.
My auto mechanic scanned the on board computer but this did not show up the problem sensor. For example: Check to see if your Front Windshield Wipers are working. After that, there may be a high amperage main fuse most likely in the underhood fuse box. The pump relay should be there also. It also has three large black lines that have insulation on them.
Check your fuse panel in the truck though. I did, and it was just like he said, so i got it towed to a shop and had them double check. He said if it started and died right away, then i had a fuel pump and filter problem. I changed all the engine sensors on my 1996 Dodge Ram Van and it vehicle only started when I changed the Flywhel sensor on the bellhousing and it was also the cheepest sensor to buy. Its been months but i finally got the parts.
See how it goes to the engine, then sharply bends down behind the alternator and air conditioner compressor? Good luck, and you'll need to go from inside the van. It is on top of the fuel tank. Will try again on my side I will let you know. You must drop the tank before you can get to it, which means you want the tank as empty as possible. The float may be hanging up, and over time dropping down to the correct position. Daniel answered 7 months ago What you are describing could possibly be the fuel pump but there are other things that you need to verify before changing your phone one thing you may check and verify is the auto shutdown relay on Dodge it's very common that that relay stall the vehicle and not crank back up especially if the connection is not in good shape at the fuse box under the hood also verify that your fuel pump relay is not having problems as this can cause the vehicle to stall as well and you may also verify voltage at the plug in the connection to the fuel pump I hope this helps you I've known a lot of people to constantly change pumps and not understand why the vehicle would not crank back up in the whole time something like the auto shutdown relay is acting crazy I'm not telling you do not have a bad pump I'm just simply telling you to check all the other possibilities to narrow it down to your pump being bad because if the pumps not getting voltage it will not come on I hope this helps thank you. The mechanically driven fuel pump on the Ram truck is located on the cylinder head on the driver's side of the vehicle.
Sounds very much like a bad fuel gauge sending unit in the gas tank. Use a transmission jack to support…. There's a lot more involved in the operation and troubleshooting of these circuits. It is in between the first and second cylinder intake ports. You will probably need to loosen the tank straps and lower it a bit to disconnect the two lines to the fuel pump. Check to be sure it's good. Insert fuel siphon hose into fuel filler neck and push it into the tank.
The Haynes manual says you'll need to remove the…. Caution::::: Do the Fuel System Release Procedure or there will be fuel sprayed and a fire hazard exists!!!!! Check to see if that is getting power. I would spray the tank strap bolts frequently for a day or two before trying to remove the strap nuts. Often times folks will accidentally hook up jumper cables backwards -- this will blow the main fuse. Take a look at the radiator's upper hose.
Check your fuse panel in the truck though. So please make sure your diagnosis is correct before replacing the fuel pump, and yes, you do have to remove the fuel tank. . They said yes, the pump and filter need to be replaced. You can change this Relay out with another Relay that is the same shape and type on a function that is known working. Also, is it possible to get to the fuel pump, which is in the gas tank, through an access door in the floor, or do you have to drop the gas tank? Pull out the fuse panel for access to the blade type fuses Posted on Oct 18, 2009 it doesn't have a fuel pump relay it has a fuel pump control unit and it is located on the chassis back quarter drivers side near the tube cross member for chassis on top of chassis rail near bed mount. The pump relay should be there also.
