2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Fuel Pump
Your 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 gets gas from the tank to the engine thanks to the fuel pump. The fuel pump takes gas from the back and brings it to the front where it's injected into the engine. However, fuel pumps can eventually fail, leaving you in a jam. If you need to replace your fuel pump for one reason or another, AutoZone has all the 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 external engine parts and fuel pump replacements you could need.
Signs of a Bad Fuel Pump

Or you might notice that it's time for a replacement if your engine suffers from low gas mileage, if it sputters, there's a humming noise from the back, or if it doesn't receive fuel from the tank at all.
