I took my truck into a mickey mouse garage as my starter blew. When I came back my truck would not start. I towed it home and started looking at the truck. I replaced the fuel filter which was really dirty but still nothing. I am now trying to locate the lift pump which I cannot see. I can see the fuel line going in a bracket and coming out going to the filter but no lift pump. I am attaching a photo of where the fuel line go into. Sorry about the pictures bad quality. The bracket shown is where the fuel line goes in on one end and goes out to the filter on the other. It is made of cast aluminum. Where is the pump. I cannot see andy electrical connections or an external pump
lift pump is in the fuel tank. keeping the tank full of fuel will keep the pump cool and prolong it's life.you have to drop the tank to access the pump.
I couldn't get your pictures to load but I'm sure your '99 is the same as my '02 the lift pump is located on the drivers side of the engine...just follow the fuel lines and you can't miss it...assuming that your truck is stock! Once you find it, remove it, and bury it in your back yard(if it's not the problem, it will be soon!) Now you can install a "real" pump and a fuel pressure gauge. Have you checked for codes?...key on/off three times...leave on at three and read the odometer.

Hi I just talked to the dodge parts dealer and he informed me that they dont make the lift pump in the front by the drivers door. He also informed me that it sounded like my truck had already been converted over where being the lift pump is now in the gas tank. I also have an error P1689.
he didnt say by the door. stock oem pumps will be located bout 6-10 inches behind the fuel filter housing, and bout 6 inches lower. good luck. how long have u had the truck, if uve had it for bout 3-or more years, i doubt its in tank. hope ya figure it out.

I just found out the same problem I think dealer put pump in tank. All that is at original lift spot is aluminum block with in/out fittings What did you find out?
Sounds like you both have already had the Dodge replacement lift pumps installed in the fuel tanks. You will have to drop the tank to replace it. It was hardly a fix when Dodge did this, as they fail just as often, and a lot of time they starve the injection pump, too. Not to scare you or anything If it is in fact a lift pump failure, I'd go with a FASS system, which does away with all that mess.
tank needs to be kept half full of diesel to keep pump cool,so it wont burn up.
