problem #1

Feb 072008

Ram 3500 4WD 6-cyl Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 53,500 miles
On the seventh my truck started missing and sputtering. It only had 53,000 miles on it. When I went out the next morning to start my truck, it would not start. I could not make it to college or work that day. It was due to a lift pump failure. I had to buy a whole new fuel system for my truck because Dodge does not make a replacement. It cost me about $700 for the fast fuel system and another $50 for my fuel pressure gauge. Plus time and the damage to my truck during the install. If this would have happened at an intersection, someone could have been hurt.
