Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck

1 Answer

Mileage calculated by computer is wrong

I have an 06 Dodge 3500 Diesel. I have 2 problems.
First the mileage that is listed by the overhead trip computer is ''way off''.
Secondly, the radiator is low but when I add some fluid it leaks out and now the temp gauge goes to hot when the engine is not hot.

06' dodge 3500 5.9 cummins will not start unless you spray it with starter fluid and when it starts it has some black smoke and some white smoke try to accellarate and it will stay high.


not sure if it has anything to do with it but my ford diesel did the same thing and it was because my oil was low. the oil pressure ran my injectors. dont know if dodge is the same way. also my air filter needed replced. Good luck!!

I have a 06 dodge ram 3500 with Cummings diesel.


you have what is known as an open diff. or worn out clutch packs in a limited slip. most makers put in a open diff because its cheaper and handles better. if you did not pay for it on your invoice your stuck with stock unless you put it in your self.

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
