SOURCE: Bad Creaks, Moans, and scrubbing in y truck when i go over speed bumps or turn.

You need to rent the ball-joint removal/installation tool, a ball-joint removal fork, and a foot pound torque wrench (at either Autozone or Pepboys) and you need to borrow or buy a rack 3/8",1/2" metric sockets, I think a set of E-torks, a good size hammer, a repair manual (for directions and torque specifications), and a good jack and stands.

SOURCE: water leak 2003 dodge 2500 diesel

What you are seeing is the water pump (often mistaken as an idler pulley). It is a very simple change. Remove the belt, loosen the two bolts on the water pump ("diamond shape with pulley on front"), pull the water pump out, and reverse steps. You may want to drain your coolant into a very clean or new bucket first or you will loose good coolant when you pull out the pump. Once water pump is in place, replace belt and your good to go. Tools needed : Belt removal tool or 3/8 inch drive/ratchet with extra long hangle or cheater bar, and i believe a 10 or 13 mm socket for the pump. NAPA carrys a lifetime warranty pump...i suggest it.

2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins 5.9 leaking fuel. Engine still runs just fine, but fuel leaking heavily from under the cab(not close to the fuel tank).


There are several fuel connection points in the fuel lines which run from the tank to the fuel pump through the left frame rail. Check these connections and look for any damage to the fuel lines. Additionally, the fuel filter on the left rear of the engine has a water bleed off knob on the bottom. This knob could also leak by the left front corner of the cab.

Fuel Filter

The recommended change interval for the fuel filter on all models is 60,000 miles under normal service. Severe service will require more frequent changing of the fuel filter.
The filter is located in the passengers side of the engine compartment.

CAUTION Before disconnecting any fuel lines, be sure to open the gas tank filler cap to relieve any pressure in the system and wrap a shop towel around the fuel line fitting before opening. Observe all fuel handling precautions.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

See Figures 1, 2 and 3

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Wrap a shop towel around the fittings and using a proper wrench, slowly loosen the fuel line fittings.
  3. Remove the 2 banjo bolts from the fuel lines.
  4. Remove the fuel filter clamp retaining bolt and the clamp.
  5. Remove the filter from the vehicle.

It is very important that ALL of the fuel line banjo bolt washers be replaced every time the banjo bolts are loosened. If the washers are not replaced the fuel lines will leak pressurized fuel causing the risk of fire or explosion.
  1. Install the new filter in position and tighten the clamp mounting bolt to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).
  2. Attach the banjo fittings with new washers in place. On Legend and Vigor, tighten the fuel line flare connector to 28 ft. lbs. (38 Nm). On the remaining models, tighten the banjo fitting bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  3. Start the vehicle and check for leaks.

Car works fine untill left overnight then wont start in the morning have to prime the diesel with the inline suction device under the bonnet then starts and runs fine


Air is getting into the fuel system allowing the diesel to drain back to the tank. Check fuel filter is tight, look along fuel line for leaks at any of the joints etc.

Check the fuel heater and the intake air heater.
Your injection pump or your injectors may be getting weak
There may also be a leak in the fuel system that is allowing air to enter it.

1999 dodge diesel 2500 seems to have a fuel related problem.


Please clarify the "loosing power" does it lose power and shut down or does it loose power but will idle? Your Cummins is electronically controlled so oil condition is important, fuel leaks, oil leaks, leaks in the air ducting between the turbo and the intake, sensors, water in the fuel. Do you get an engine light when this trouble happens? Dodge uses a lift pump to carry fuel to the the injection pump, is it working?
