because they are built to the absolute minimum spec like pretty much everything on the current dc vehicles and when you do that to increase profits you have to expect the failure rate of these items to go up a little. -- if at first you dont succeed youre not cut out for skydiving i have a 2004 dakota 4.7 v8. after about 50k miles on the truck my fuel sending unit started acting up. once my gas guage gets to about half tank it drops to empty and the gas light and fuel lights come on. they stay on until i turn the truck off and back on. any reason why this would happen dodge dealership cant give me a answer. and since i have 62k miles on my truck now my and i did not buy the extra warrenty on the truck i will have to pay the $400 for the part as well as for them to put it on. i am just trying to figure out why it would have went out so soon.. mike houston .

now that depends on what type and how much mileage you put on it now doesnt it. -- if at first you dont succeed youre not cut out for skydiving a comparison of variuos model and engines loaded and unloaded and then will do a cost per mile too when comapared to diesels at current fuel costs. it is a imformative not a race. oh right... to further your quest to prove that diesels are more expensive to operate. good luck with that... .

$400 for the part as well as for them to put it on. i am just trying to figure out why it would have went out so soon.. because its an electrical part and following one of the fundamental laws of the universe sometimes shit happens. .
