99 24 valve got it saturday on tuesday it just died and wouldn't start back up it cranks though no check engine light and the code machine threw no codes..it leaked about a quart and halfor more of oil but 3 days later dipstick still reads above safe level
.I can hear the lift pump kick on and run for about 30 seconds about I bump the ignition I can't tell where it leaked the oil from though..when Iturn the key on oil pressure rises right above the 0 pressure line every mechanic I call says check fuel but would that explain the oil spillage and no oil pressure
That's what I have been told but what gets me is the oil spillage it happened as soon as it died when we were pushing it that wouldn't have anything to do with the vp44 would it and no oil pressure build up the guy I bought it from said he put a new lift pump and vp44 in it about 10 thousand miles back guess I'll check the filter tomorrow and see if its getting fuel to eliminate that but what could have spilled oil and the dip stick is still above safe level
Well I had it towed to my buddies shop smokin okie diesel and found out the fuel gauge was incorrect and just didn't have enough fuel..it was pumping it to the filter and slowly leaking into the motor so put fuel in it and got it started and hasn't died since lol so rookie mistake learned not to trust a dodge fuel gauge..and a for the oil it is just the vacuum pump ..getting it rebuilt..thank you for all the suggestions they will be definitely helpful in the future

There is a new type seal for the vacuum pump shaft that has two sides (lips) on it to cover the groove that the original seal made in the shaft. It's about $4 at Southern Plains Cummins in OKC. At least it was a few years ago when I did my 2000 model truck.
