DODGE RAM FUEL PUMP PROBLEM

1990 Dodge Ram • 180,000 miles

Bought a dodge ram van for a wk truck. But was told it might need a new fuel pump. Bc it was starting and then while driving. It wd cut off. Sometimes not starting right back up for several tries. So replaced the fuel pump. Before we replaced it.U couldnt hear fuel pump coming on at all. Now you DO. But now. Fuel pump comes on. But van wont turn over. What now? Tried evryting I can think of. Charged battery. Im now expert by any means. But have no money to be blowing on this now either. HELP!

First lets clear up a few things since there seems to be a lot of confusion. Are you aware that "crank" and "turn over" are the same thing? Many owner's are not. Some people incorrectly think "turn over" means to turn the ignition switch. You hear the fuel pump run for one second after turning on the ignition switch, but the engine doesn't crank, is that right? If so, what happens to the brightness of the head lights or dome light when you try to crank the engine? Do you have a manual or automatic transmission? Which engine do you have?
