      Another mechanic question

      So this morning my wife calls and said the pick up died out on her way home from work. So I go to where she is stalled and try go start it, after checking oil and such, and it starts and runs for about a second or 2 then dies. I'm thinking a fuel issue, probably the pump? It has 270k plus miles and I bought it used so don't know if it has ever been replaced. So my neighbor and I go and tow it to the mechanic in town, who is gone till Saturday, ugh! Oh well, it is what it is. Just trying to get some ideas on what a few of u mechanically inclined fellas on here think. On the tow into town I could here a humming sound, with the key on to steer, sounded like the fuel pump trying to pump every so often? I know every time I turn the key on in that pickup, I can hear the fuel pump, but couldn't this morning! Thanks.

      On my 95 dodge the filter is part of the pump. In the fuel tank. Wasn’t hard to change. 4 bolts for the box. Couple wire connectors and gas fill tube. Off she came

      No. Never heard of that before! Even if it worked, still need to replace it. It broke down only a half mile from town, so no biggie to tow it.

      If you don't hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the ignition half way that's most likely the culprit. Otherwise I'll go with a bad alternator. Have replaced a few of each in my day, pump went out after a long trip after I got home and parked while bad alternator had me stranded on the side of the road.
      Plugged cat or fuel filter will cause hesitation/loss of power but not stalling of the engine in most cases..

      Pounding on a Dodge fuel tank works too. You'll get about 2-3 miles with each treatment. Works in a pinch.
