Hi every one. I'm a diesel mechanic for the last 22 years
I've owned this 02 dodge auto for four years and it had been trouble free till now.It has 220000km on it and the throttle pedal goes dead for second every once in a while. it gets worse when its hotter.
I got the codes read at the dealer and he came up with code p0215 injection pump timing failure and lowfuel pressure from transfer pump. the service tech said that the transfer pump pressure is too low it starves the injection pump for fuel and that takes out the injection pump. He suggested to change to the fuel tank mounted kit for $568.
Is this kit worth the money?
Or should I mount a Carter 4600 in the frame or buy the FASS kit?
How much is the FASS kit?
This truck has a Edge ez module and has lots of power for what I do. Every thing else is stock.

I would recommend installing a raptor lift pump, lifetime warranty for a decent price.

Bernie I am on my 3rd lift pump and second VP44. When it is starving the injection pump you are doing damage and its only a matter of time till it goes belly up. I would not spend the money on the fuel tank mounted kit as it gives pretty low FP as well. Never personally used a Carter but imagine its a good pump. I switched to a Walbro.
Either way do little research on this topic there is a lot of good info on here.

Good Luck.

I would recommend the FASS or Airdog. FASS makes an HPFP model which is just the pump and it will cost you less than that intank piece of junk from the dealer. Both the FASS and Airdog have lifetime warranties as well.

All of the suggestions here will work; except the one you are getting from the dealer. Those intank pumps won't meet the pressure requirements stated in the service manual right out of the box.

:agree2:

Yeap the AirDog 150 is the best route. It give you a full fuel system (New lines, fittings, pump, filters, water separator, and even new pickup tube)

Here is my write up...

i had a problem with my ip and i got the airdog to aid in delivery i was told by the dealer that they reccomend the in tank unit but the airdog will insure that there's enough presure being supplied to the ip.
