My truck is dyeing...

Asked by Apr 19, 2015 at 10:11 AM about the 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 4 Dr SLT 4WD Quad Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 dodge 1500. I bought
the truck about 3 days ago. For
some reason I have to turn the key
twice. The first turn just cranks fuel
into the lines, and the second turn it
will start... When I tried driving it
today, it just cuts out. When I hit the
gas it's almost like it just shuts off...
Any ideas?

Sounds like a fuel flow restriction, have you had the fuel pressure and flow tested? 01 it maybe just time for a new fuel pump assembly. 14 years if it has never been replaced is a long time for any pump to last..

From what I understand it has a new file Pump, but I'll check the pressure to be sure. I'll keep you filled in. Thanks

Fuel filter.

So I put a little gas in my tank and it worked great! Meaning that my gas meter is wrong. Which leads me to believe the float inside tank is bad. Just took out the pump and putting a new one in know. I'll keep you updated

Everything is working great! New pump was all it needed.
