Bad Fuel pump in Dodge pickup

Unread post by Mac » Mon Apr 04, 2011 6:33 am

Broke down in Nebraska, Fuel pump ( as diagnosed by local Dodge dealer) must be replaced, $900.00. Don't have the money. Pump is in the gas tank. Can I put an electric pump in place, temporary.

I dont know how you would. Either way you need to remove the gas tank, so if you are going to do that, might as well put in the correct pump.

Tell me what your car does. (ie. I start to drive from a standing still position and it drives normally. As I accelerate it shifts from 1st to second gear at about 10 mph. Then when I approach 20mph, it doesn't go any faster. The rpms stop going up and stepping on the gas harder doesn't make any difference. 20 is as fats as it will go.)or (I start to drive from a standing still position and it drives normally. As I accelerate it shifts from 1st to second gear at about 10 mph. Then when I approach 20mph, it doesn't go any faster. The rpms go up but the car doesn't go any faster. 20 is as fast as it will go.)

I need more information so I can understand what your car is doing.

Given that, a plugged cat. a plugged fuel filter, a bad fuel pump all could make it so a car will top out at low speeds. Scan your car to see what the computer is doing while this is going on.

ok, you don't have a hesitation problem. Hesitation is like a hiccup. Or a bog down before picking up. It's a lag before acting normal. You have a transmission problem from your codes. First thing is check all your fuses. Make sure they are all good. Make sure no one has removed any fuses. Your codes say there is a gear ratio error and a communication error. could be a TCM, a BCM, fuse blown or missing fuse, bad trans rpm sensor or a bad trans. (slipping) a bad trans temp sensor could cause this type of problem but since you don't have a code for that don't worry about it (but watch the temp just in case) You need to clear the codes and drive it with the scanner and graph the trans data stream to see what the input and output rpms are. watch for the shifts into the different gears and see what your transmission are doing.

after clearing the codes see if the trans changes gears when you drive it. Does the code come back right after you clear it? do you have to drive it for the code to return? Does the trans change gears?

Probably too late now. First, open the hood and remove the cover of the fuse box immediately behind the battery, check the fuse (never replace with a higher rated fuse), and if fuse is good, take a relay with same number from a circuit that you know works such as horn and install in fuel pump relay circuit. If pump still does not work, you will have to drop the tank. get a 35 gallon clean high density propylene drum, a drill end pump at a hardware store (it will say do not use on combustible or flammable liquids, but you can), two of the cheapest short garden hoses, and a battery operated drill. have someone help you push the vehicle to a place where you can safely get under it with the tank on the side away from any potential traffic.

Take a Philips screw driver and remove the screws from the fill nozzle inside the fuel door. Get an old blanket or tarp to lie on under the tank and loosen the clamps on the hoses below the fill nozzle and remove the fill nozzle (you will notice that there is a ball check in the nozzle that would have prevented you from pumping the fuel out of the tank. Use the drill pump through the fill hose to pump as much fuel as you can into the drum. There are two nuts (I think 9/16 but not sure) holding the straps to the tank, put something under the tank to keep it from dropping to the ground because you will need to disconnect the electric connector and two hoses to finish removing the tank. When you have the tank out, you will need a spanner wrench, which you can borrow from an auto supply store by leaving a deposit, or you can use a rubber hammer to loosen the locking ring on the fuel pump. If the pump is a four prong pump, the two inner connectors are for fuel level and the two outer are the pump operators. Use alligator clamps on the two outer connectors and touch the terminals of the battery just long enough to confirm that the pump is not operating.

If the pump does operate directly off the battery, then you have to have someone that is better than I am check the electrical system. If the pump is not working directly off the battery, you will need to get a new pump. Use the same test on the new pump to confirm that it works before installing. Pumps at a dealer or auto supply store will cost between $175 and $260. You can find them on-line for $65 to $125 with a one year warranty, but keep in mind that you will have to go through this whole procedure again if it fails. When you install the new pump you will have to be careful to get it in properly so the float is in the middle of the tank and not up against the edge of the tank. Also, while you have the tank out, give it a good cleaning and replace the rubber hoses from the steel lines to the tank and spray some dielectric on the terminals.

Replacing the tank is, of course, reverse of the removal. Only put about three to five gallons of fuel in the tank to test it in case you have to go through this whole process again. Good luck. So, your total cost doing it yourself will be about $200 to $300 and you will have a drill, a pump, and a drum. Oh, I forgot, the new pump will probably not have a roll over valve, so you will have to use the one from your old pump.

2004 Chrysler Pacifica leaking grease

Unread post by Burkestransmission254 » Wed Jun 25, 2014 11:09 am

I have rebuilt a transmission for a 2004 Chrysler pacifica for a customer and when I drive it is leaking grease from the transfer case and I don't know how to fix it. I have tried everything I know.

where is it leaking from? and we're talking about gear oil right? Not trans fluid from the trans.

a shaft seal, a case gasket...

If you have rebuilt the trans what kind of problem are you having with the transfer case?
