2003 Dodge 2500 with hemi engine will start after running seems to starve for gas and has backfired through the K&N breather?

Asked by Nov 28, 2014 at 08:33 PM about the 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Laramie Quad Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After feathering the gas it seems to run fine for awhile and then will do it again sometimes.  The read out says intermediate fuel pressure.  Does this mean the fuel pump needs to be replaced or is there a sensor that needs to be reset or what exactly can be done the least expensive way.

Usually when an engine backfires, it's an ignition timing problem. Unfortunately with modern vehicles they don't have distributors and the timing and fuel injection is controlled by the ECM.
