SOURCE: Charging problem on 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel

I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours

SOURCE: 1994 chev truck 6.5 turbo diesel with long hard

There is a cold start solonoid in the injection pump on the 92&93's. this will cause a hard start, and run poorly till warms up. It does something with the presure in pump which advances it.

SOURCE: 94 f350 7.3l turbo diesel looses oil pressure as rpm increase

Before you spend money on a new gauge. Get an oil pressure testing gauge for $20 , remove the oil pressure sending unit and test the oil pressure. If oil pressure at idle and 3000 rpm's is a-ok via spec's ( big money repair items) then its either the gauge a clogged or defective sending unit or the circuitry. (little money repair items)
You can also have this done at a repair shop.

SOURCE: 1996 f250 7.3 powerstroke has rough idle on starts

it sounds like to that it is either worn/ old injectors,dirtly HPOP (high pressure oil pump) oil worn HPOP pump or dirty fuel filters or fuel. you can take truck to a qualified diesel shop and they can do a buzz test on your injectors and see if they need to be replaced with a buzz test the tester will buzz all eight injectors with engine off and you can hear the buzz of the injectors then it will go through and buzz each injectors individually in firing order to der determin witch ones are bad. the bad injectors will be alot quieter than the other and most testing equipent will show what they are running at. hope this helps.

What makes a 1995 Turbo Diesel GMC Yukon accelerates on it own?


There should be a control unit on top of the engine that controls this to keep the engine at a certain temp which runs off the engine block temp sensore. I would try changing the sensors first located on the drivers side front of cylinder head and in the goose neck on top for one of the thermostats.It wouldn't be a bade idea to change the thermostats too at the same time.

Have you checked the PCV system?? If its stuck in the closed position then you will lack power and turbo boost. A vehicle needs 3 things to make it run proper; FUEL,FIRE and AIR. Try that and see if it helps.

2001 Ford F350, 7.3 Diesel, 6 speed manual trans. Starts and idles just fine but when I let out the clutch the engine dies when the rpm reaches about 1500. Even in neutral it dies when rpm is slowly...


I want to say APP , If the Cam sensor degrades or is out of range it will do this, I wish I could hear it,The turbo can also do this, just make sure all turbo connection are clamp down, and there is no leak from any of the tubes

The Turbo Charger does not seem to engage .I was led to believe that after around 30 miles per hr. it would be like haveing a passing gear. Oh yes the car is a 1984 Nercedes SD 300 series Desiel.


The turbo charger has more to do with rpms than road speed.The turbo uses exhaust gas leaving the engine to push more fresh air into the engine thus creating higher compression and more horse power.You should feel some boost above 1500 rpms if everything is working properly.If not then you should have the system checked by a dealer or a good diesel shop.Good Luck!

MY 1989 BMW TURBO DIESEL IS IDLING AT 1.800 RPM AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHICH PART OF THE ELECTRONIC SET UP TO CHANGE. THERE IS ONE MULTICONECTION ON THE PUMP SIDE AND A TUBULAR (RESISTOR) TYPE BOX...


On most cars, the idle control is on the throttle body, and that is where the idle adjustment is.
I'd buy a service manual for your car, it will tell you everything you will ever want to know about your car.

2002 duramax will heat up underload but not at idle any ideas why


No diesel I have ever owned will heat up to operating temp while idling. I have had semi's and dump truck and a Dodge with a Cummings turbo diesel. If you don't idle a diesel up to around 1200 rpm while sitting the combustion chamber temperature will drop because the diesel does not ignite fully at low rpm. You may also notice after an extended period of idling 1/2 hour or more that when you pull away the exhaust will be whitish blue because of the unburnt diesel fuel sitting on top of the rings. Also extended low idle will wash down the cylinder walls with unburnt diesel and remove the oil from lubricating the cylinders and rings. Hope this helps you understand why your diesel won't heat up while idling. Mike
