Get on hard pull or pulling something out that's stuck it spits and slooperers. Consistent miss. 2000 dodge 3500 4x4. Thanks in advance.

Maybe you could provide a little bit more information.  Does this happen only when you are pulling something out?  Does it ever happen outside of pulling?  Do you have any engine fault codes?  What is your fuel pressure doing during these events?

Simple things to check would be air filter and fuel filter, but if you can provide any mods that are on your truck that would be helpful.

Yes to the mods and codes. But on a personal note, what is a "slooperer"? That is a new one for me.

No mods and no codes. It is straight factory. For instance I was not doing it on purpose to see if I could power braket I only done this to pull it down!! So when doing that it goes to missing poorly and starts acting like a dirty fuel filter. Filter is changed and clean. 350 miles on 25 gals of pulling a livestock trailer,7x24 ft. stock trailer. So a decent size trailer pulled pretty decent until a hill. 60 mph down to 50 mph pretty quick on a moderate hill. No black smoke at all. This truck doesn't smoke at all. Like I said it's all stock expect for the ranch hand bumper and the flatbed that I put on it.

Not sure on fuel pressure. I need to put a mechanical gauge on it.

Not for sure on fuel pressure.

I believe that should be gat minus the g. Looking "at fuel pressure".

Sounds like low fuel pressure to me which is going to lead to a new VP44 which will cost you a cool 1200$ or more. Maybhve already killed ur pump. Did you scan for codes with a obd tool or just assumed there was no codes becuase of no cel? 

 

OT: @Hawkez seen u have a FTE resonated? Thinking about installing one to reduce highway cabin noise. How do you like ours? Could I get an exhaust sound clip?

Scanned for codes and nothing showed up. We scanned with 2 different scanners to double check it. Nothing.

I like it a lot.  I don't have much cabin noise or drone.  I'm not sure what an exhaust sound clip is.

I agree with most here I would check that fuel pressure ASAP. These trucks are known to start and run without a lift pump. Hard on the VP44 being you have no codes your lucky right now. I would get a fuel pressure gauge in the cab and see what is going on.

What is good fuel pressure for a Cummins 24 valve? I have 10 psi at idle but goes to nothing under load damn near. Thankyou in advance.

Yup there’s your problem. You need 18 22 psi at idle and 14 16 wide open throttle. I would get a Fass or Airdo fuel system as the stock on will just keep going out. It will be a surprise if you didn’t ruin your Vp44 yet. Replace lift pump and then see wht happens.
