'02 HO - missing/hesitating
I have an 2002 Dodge 3500 6 speed. I had a new lift pump installed in December. Over the last few weeks the truck has started for the lack of a better term - hesitating or missing. No smoke (blue or black present). Seems to do it more in lower speeds (below 50 mph) than it does above that.

i agree, same exact thing happened to me, the dealer put a lift pump in and was just a temp fix. then they put the VP in a week later under warr. the vp is bad.

As for the lift pump ditch stock and get aAirDog or a FASS there is no cheap way of doing it trust me. I've replaced 5 stock pumps trying...
The here is how to replace the VP44...
