1995 Dodge Ram 2500 ProblemsNumerous Conditions May Cause Engine to Crank But Not Start
If the engine is difficult to start or cranks but does not start, it can be caused by a leak in the return side of the fuel system. This type of leak can allow air to enter the injection pump resulting in starting issues. A rubber hose on the back of the injection pump, connecting the pump to the steel hard line, that can be the source of this type of leak.
On some models a void in the rear window seal may cause a water leak. Water may be present on or under the carpet. The seal will need to be replaced if that is the source.
If a Check Engine Light illuminates indicating leak detection pump (LDP) failure, the cause is often pinched or disconnected vacuum lines to the pump. Vacuum lines should be inspected before replacing the leak detection pump. Contamination (carbon or debris) in the pump can cause failure and any hoses should be cleared before a new pump is installed.

Is it cheaper to have a mechanic order one and install it, or to have it rebuilt from scratch? On my van, a mechanic has told me that the cost of one that he has ordered--with labor--will cost me a total of 3,350.00 to install. Does that sound reasonable? Thanks in advance--
1995 Dodge Ram 2500 RecallsChrysler Recalls 1994-1999 Dodge Rams Due to Corrosion on the Secondary Hood Latch
Chrysler has recalled certain 1994-1999 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models in areas that use road salt because corrosion of the return spring on the hood secondary latch could cause the mechanism to bind in the "release position." This may cause the hood to open unexpectedly. Dealers will replace the secondary hood latch.
Chrysler has recalled certain 1994-1996 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models equipped with Diesel engines because the throttle cable could unravel (fray) or break, which may cause a loss of throttle control. A throttle that does not return to idle may lead to unexpected acceleration. Dealers will inspect and replace the throttle cable and upper bell crank lever.
Chrysler has recalled certain 1994-1996 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 light duty pickup trucks because they were built with an ignition switch and wiring that may overheat. Dealers will install a relay and overlay harness.
