Cummins Diesel losses accelerator mostly when weather is cold

Driving along usually near the begining of a trip (5-20mins), suddenly you will feel the truck surge, ever so slightly and then..wham, no accelerator, touch the pedal and NOTHING happens, but the truck is still running!... pull over and restart, engine light is on, and pedal is back... this will happen while I am driving....anywhere from 30-50mph! Any suggestions?

Disconnect your alternator. I had a similar problem with a 2001 Ram 2500. I found that the alternator was surging and causing the automatic trans sensors to disengage the trans creating a slipping feeling. This may be the cause for your problem.

This is referred to as a drive by wire system. meaning you have no accel cable. it uses a sensor on the gas pedal and on the pump. probably the pedal sensor going bad need to check the code and go from there

5.9 2005 Dodge cummins diesel - smokes - cold or warm. Any suggestions on where to begin??


What color smoke? Blue means you are burning oil, possibly worn rings or valve seals. Gray is excessive fuel from worn injectors. White is antifreeze usually means headgasket.

I have a chevrolet dmax/diesel 2005 and it won't accelerate at all. it was fine until a few days ago when I was driving and it suddenly stopped accelerating. so now I can go up to 30 mph and that's it.......


When My Dodge Cummins Diesel did that it turned out to be the fuel lift pump. That truck had 2 fuel pumps. Not sure about the Chevy, but it sounds like the exact same symptoms.

How to start 92 npr diesel in cold weather


You will probably need some Ether based starting fluid. You may have to remove air filter to shoot a 2 second blast into the intake - but first try shooting the air intake with the 2 second blast and start vehicle. Diesel fuel tends to thicken in cold weather and a fuel additive like Lowes diesel fuel treatment may help keep your fuel fluid in colder weather. In cold weather, like on a night of clear skies causing low temperatures, a block engine heater will help to keep your fuel fluid - along with the diesel treatment. Block heaters are not too difficult to install depending on your vehicles configuration and how much room you have at a freeze plug, and are well worth the cost.
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

My Diesel Golf lacks power and acceleration on hills, can you advise what the problem is?


The problem could probabely be the diesel filter, try replacing it.
If there's no difference thn best would be to service the injector pump and the nozzles.
