Other Dodge owners confirm my experience. The fuel injection pump and transfer pump was replaced. The contact stated that while attempting to park, he applied the brakes but the vehicle would not stop. The contact owns a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500. Also, the turbo charger was broken and the fuel injection pump was bad. Was quarter tank and empty.
I have noticed that this occurs when the weather changes drastically or the engine has been worked and is hot. The failure mileage was 64,000. I'm sure the transmission will be next, I've been putting special fluid additive in that, this seems to help with smoothness of shifting and power. The vehicle was not taken to have the failure diagnosed. There is a good reason why Toyota is taking over the market. The failure recurred and the dealer only paid half of the cost to replace the injection pump.
The cummins engine is first class all the way, the interior is styled very nicely and proves very useful, and the exterior styling is just mean. A computer scan at a local repair facility indicated a possible problem in the injector timing circuit or in the pump system. Mine just broke 200,000 and I can still count on it to go to work every day and pull our 18,000 pound Aux. The dealer is blaming the problem on the fuel. Neither the local dealers want to acknowledge this situation, nor does conoco.
The paint in the bed did not match, not even close! Here, you can find parts, accessories, and components designed specifically for trucks with the engine. Currently it has become more consistent. The vehicle was repaired by the dealer s. What happens is the engine does not respond to the fuel pedal input. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and the diesel injection pump was repaired under the warranty. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and informed the contact that the vehicle was no longer under warranty. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars for comfort is because it's a heavy duty Diesel truck, suspensions are a bit stiff, just didn't feel right giving it a perfect rating for that even though it's not any worse than any other heavy duty truck.
Drove 43 miles on a friday afternoon in traffic to find a dealer with a product as advertised, in better condition than many others i saw and worked with me on price. Also, the turbo charger was broken and the fuel injection pump was bad. The failure mileage was 271,500. I have also experienced problems when turning into traffic the loss of power and unable to accelerate has caused other drivers to perform drastic braking and maneuvering to avoid collisions. This first started around 36000 miles after a long highway trip coming to a stop after which the engine stayed at idle and would not accelerate.
Fuel gage no longer works, empty at half tank of fuel now. The failure mileage was 64,000. As a result, gasoline is not being pumped; therefore, the vehicle stops and continues to lose power. Dodge denies there is a problem. The failure mileage was 61,000.
The only thing I hated was there was more mileage on the car over almost 3,000 miles than posted online and what I was told over the phone. Even so, you still need to be sure you are updating your Cummins engine and performing maintenance on a regular basis. The manufacturer was contacted on both incidents and they paid half of the 2nd repair. Highway driving is much higher mpg. The dealer stated that the injection pump timing was failing, which affects the transfer pump. I need a direct response from the manufacturer.
The cab corners matched but was simply paint on rust and the rockers were treated the same but with white paint on this blue truck. What happens is the engine does not respond to the fuel pedal input. The contact stated that the fuel return line from the injector pump was cracked at the fitting location. What occurs is a fluctuation, and the ability to control the accelerator with the pedal, from a fluctuating ability, to an all out loss of power whatsoever. However, the fuel company conoco conducted an investigation and to them, the problem is not fuel based.
I use my pickup to haul and tow many different trailers, including our 40 ft. As a result, fuel was leaking from the vehicle and it would not start. The front suspension system was replaced by the dealer. The manufacturer was contacted on both incidents and they paid half of the 2nd repair. A computer scan at a local repair facility indicated a possible problem in the injector timing circuit or in the pump system. What occurs is a fluctuation, and the ability to control the accelerator with the pedal, from a fluctuating ability, to an all out loss of power whatsoever. The failure mileage was 271,500.
