Bad fuel pump, Is there a fuel pump fuse?
I have a 99 2500 with the 5.9 gas engine. It has around 160,000 miles and the pump was replaced around the 100,000 mile mark at the dealer since they convinced my wife that the fuel filter needed to be changed while in for other sensor problems. I had driven the truck all day Saturday taking my daughter shopping so we were making MANY stops. There were no indications that there was a problem. I went to take my daughter to school Monday morning, and when I tried to start the engine, I heard the engine start to catch and let off the switch. The engine didn't catch so I tried to start it again and it tried and then just continued to crank.
I am pretty sure my fuel pump is bad. No sound when you turn the key, engine starts when starting fluid is sprayed in the intake. I have checked the fuel pump relay, relay is good, power is where it is supposed to be in the relay box. Of course, during the day shopping, I filled the 35 gallon tank. Well, at least when I ran it through emmisions testing Saturday morning it passed!
I have searched a little around here and found a few threads mentioning a fuel pump fuse. Is there a fuse? I have not found one but thought I would ask before dropping the tank to replace the pump if the pump is not bad. Any other ideas or tips?
