1999 Ram 2500 24v Cummins, 47re, 4x4, fass 165 lift pump, edge comp box, 150hp Hot VP44
Howdy all, was at a big car show today, and did a big burnout, at the end of the burnout, the truck shut off, wouldn’t start. It got hot but not out of the comfort zone. I’m having ecm problems (wts light refuses to come on anymore and weird starting) I put some fuel in the truck, bled the system, no fuel to the injector lines, I unplugged the up, plugged it back in, and got fuel to the lines, enough to get the truck started. Truck ran perfect, let it idle for a while make sure it wasn’t gonna die, then drove home, about 5 minutes later I got dead peddle, and CEL came on (couldn’t read the code because I left my reader at work), peddle came back about 5 seconds later, cel went off. I’m just curious if the ecm got hot, and is causing problems, or if it’s more likely the vp fried itself. I have felt like the vp hasn’t been sending as much fuel as it should consider the modifications I’ve made to the truck. Fuel pressure never dropped below 18 though! Hasn’t been under 10 psi since I got it 2 years ago.
