my 2005 5.7 hemi will not start, acts like it is out of gas


Asked by Jul 15, 2013 at 11:49 PM about the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When turning it over it starts for a second will not keep running. Would it be the fuel filter
or pump?

3 Answers


Check the pressure at the fuel rail then change the filter and check it again. If it goes up the pump is good. If it doesn't change the pump. The fuel filter should be changed anyway.

that's one end, and another is exhaust flow, clogged catalytic possible!

the vacuum line could have fallen off of the fuel pressure regulator, would cause increased idle speed and poopy acceleration~
