Q: Engine will not remain running on 2004 Dodge Ram 3500

My truck just die the other day, I thought it was the fuel pump, so I replaced it. Engine started and I drove around the corner, it died again. I installed a new fuel filter, it will start, but dies after a few seconds. Anyone out there have any clues as to what the malfunction is?

It is very likely that your fuel system fuel transfer pump (fuel lift pump) is failing. It is attached to the rear of the fuel filter/water separator housing. There was a retrofit kit to Install a In-Tank Fuel Transfer Pump.
My truck was doing that...especially when I would get down to 1/4 tank and slow down or stop....I had it all checked every thing was fine changed fuel filter and it still kept dying and was hard to. Get running again and to stay running ....I put diesel kleen in the fuel after every fill up it cleans ur injectors and. Keeps them from sticking and my truck doesn't die any more plus I got my power back cuz it was runiing real runs like a different truck u should notice a difference after a couple of times putting it in the tank....this at least fixed my problem anyway...hope this helps oh and don't get the lucas brand get the one power service brand
