    I have the same problem. Fuel leaking out of filter head around heating element wires/plug. This part is obsolete and I have called over 50 wrecking yards with no luck. Dodge will sell there fix for $1200. If you find someone who has them or the heating elements please let me know. magerstlc@yahoo.com

I am trying to replace the fuel filter on my 1999 Dodge Ram 24 valve Cummins engine. It looks like the lid of the housing canister for the fuel filter is fixed, so do I just remove the top center nut so...


You are correct. The nut on top of the canister is loosened and the canister drops down. First - disconnect the electrical pigtail for the water sensor (at the bottom of the canister. Second - turn the water fuel bleed valve (yellow) near the top front of the canister to control spillage when you do remove the canister. The new filter comes with new O ring seals. Moisten with claean diesel and install. Add clean diesel to the newly installed filter and you will have an easier start up.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins Diesel?


It is located on the driver's side of the engine. You will see a yellow handle for the fuel/water separator drain valve at the bottom of the filter housing. The black plastic top unscrews and the filter can be pulled out.868820e.jpga75da07.jpg

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?
