Hello I have a 98 Dodge Ram 1500 and it wont start. The battery charge is fine. When I hold down the gas peddle it will start and will run as long as I keep my foot on the peddle, as soon as I let up the truck dies any suggestions would be great.
Hey all, I read a couple of posts and tried hitting the bottum of my gas tank a couple times. It started right up let it ran for a while turned it off and then tried to start it again and did the same thing. Is this the fuel pump? Im not quite sure any help would be great.
I was gonna suggest the battery since the 2nd Gen's are dependant on the battery. Maybe try another battery even though you say the battery is good just for sh*ts and giggles.
Not sure about banging the tank portion though .. could be a clogged filter as well
Okay I was out messing with it again and pounded on the bottum of the fuel tank and it started right up. I let it idle for about 10 minutes and after about 5 minutes what seemed to be the fuel solinod started clicking so I let it run a little longer and then turned it off. It would not start back up again although I didnt try pounding the fuel tank again. What could be the problem I am having?
When I left the interrior light on gone night in the garage the battery was dead the next morning. I quick charged the battery and the trusk would start right up but once I tool my foot off the gas it died instantly. Like the post someonthe suggestted you read I disconnected the battery for a minute and once hooked back up started and idled fine. It's a memory thing.
