Default 99 RAM2500 let me test your knowledge

1999 Dodge ram 2500..... 360 Automatic.

The truck will not start. UNLESS..... you dump some gas down the intake. Then the truck will start and run and drive just fine. If you shut it off at any point in time it will NOT start. UNLESS you dump some more gas down the intake. Once you give it that little primer shot you can drive it for hours........

The crank sensor, coil, computer were all replaced by the previous owner who got fed up with it.

Any ideas? Anybody?

im guessing that the injectors are supposed to pulse..... or cycle.. when you turn the key on..... I take it that's not happening and that's where the problem lies

I personally did not check the fuel pressure... but the previous owner a friend of mine. bought a fuel pressure gauge just to check it... and he said it was fine. I think around 40lbs but I don't remember exactly

Next time try tapping on the tank while turning the key. The pump may not be building enough pressure.

Use a rubber mallet and let us know what happened.

Oh, by the way...Here's your crown KingNothing...

Sounds like a weak fuel pump to me. I would get a fuel pressure gauge and double check the pressure. Make sure your not dropping pressure as your trying to start.

Check to see if it holds at 40 psi for 5 mins. If it doesn't, you have a problem with the fuel system.
