It sure sounds like the fuel pump starting to go but not for 30k miles.
It did it from about a month after I bought it with 42k on the clock, till now, with 63k. So its more like 20k miles, but still.It sure sounds like the fuel pump starting to go but not for 30k miles.
I have the lifetime powertrain warranty, but they said:At 30k miles you are still under warranty unless you bought it prior to this date 3yrs ago. None the less they should give you a break for serving our country durring your 3 yrs of ownership. My 09 warranty ends May 11 unless I get to 36k first. But I'm not ten thousand miles away fighting a war protecting the very same people charging your wife look at ur truck! Active service members should be allowed a 36/5yr wrranty instead of a 36/3yr...that bothers me to no end! EDIT: just noticed your milage...doesn't matter, they shouldn't have charged your wife anything...pricks! Thanks for serving and stay safe!
Whats the trick to get them to honor the lifetime power train warranty. In the terms and conditions, its only good for the first owner, and is not transferable, or did they change that?
Yeha but 05's and 09's are completely different electrical wise. The engines are kinda close, trannies are almost the same too, but idk. THe transmission filter can crack or leak, causing loss of pressure in the trans and lockup, which would stall out your truck.I have no idea whats going with your truck but there were a few complaints of trucks stalling out when stopping or just stalling out in general back in 2005. The fixes that they came up with that solves their problems were:
There was a crack or leak in one of the two transmission filters, not sure how that causes stalls.
Another was the throttle position sensor.
This is coming from car complaints.com from people who own 2005 4.7 dodge ram 1500's.
No its not transferable. I had a special circumstance, I am the first actual owner of the truck. It was used at the dealer that took delivery of it, driven on a dealer plate with their advertising vinyls on it. I bought it with 43,000 miles and got all the new warranties, and paid half the price. Original sticker was $42 something, I paid $21,000.Whats the trick to get them to honor the lifetime power train warranty.

While unusual, electronic fuel pumps (EFI systems) have to prime themselves. That buzzing you heard on your GM trucks rear ends (THEY ALL DID IT IN THE 90's ), was the fuel pump. In the first few seconds, the pump is pushing extra volume to help keep the engine running and stabilize the idle.^I responded to your other post, but just wanted to add that it is very strange for the fuel pump to act up when cold. All the problems I had with GM fuel pumps were ALWAYS when they were hot. The car would run then once hot would stumble and/or stall. If you waited 15 minutes it would start and get you about 5 more miles. I drove our malibu from orlando to melbourne 5 miles at a time once lol.
