Fuel system issues

10

Asked by May 10, 2017 at 09:59 AM about the 2003 Dodge Caravan SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have changed the fuel filter.  The pump is
engaging.  But the lines under the hood aren't
getting enough pressure.  4 of the 6 lines are
getting fuel to them.  Idk where to go from here.  It
stalled out and won't fire.  Turns over and has
spark just seems like its not getting enough fuel to
the lines.

When you say 4 of the 6 lines are getting fuel, do you mean there is no fuel at 2 of the injectors? Have you hooked up a fuel pressure gauge to check the pressure at the fuel rail?

Where would the fuel "rail" be at? (Sorry if that is a stupid question.) And no i have not used a pressure gauge kind of googling and testing theories as I go.

It is not a stupid question, but it does show that you lack the expertise to be working on your fuel system. Get someone that knows vehicle repair to help you with it.

The problem was the pressure line leading to the fuel rail was clogged and there was water in the system. Changed out the fuel in the tank. Removed fuel from the pistons and replaced the line. She fired on up.
