There is a good chance that one of the injectors are leaking and needs to be replaced. It's common on the cummings for the injectors to leak if there is a lot of idle time. Good luck and keep me posted.

My 2004 cummings diesel starts & stalls I replaced the fuel filter canister type and truck was fine. Now it shuts off and restarts after sitting a while?


the engine is starved for fuel,are you sure you put on a big enough capacity fuel filter,they come in different capacities,or you could have a pin hole in the line somewhere letting air into the system,or the fuel pump could be getting weak,you can test this with a fuel pressure tester

I have a 1999 dodge 2500 cummings diesel truck that will idle but when I accelerate it acts like it is not getting enough fuel


  • First check the fuel filter and if the fuel filter is almost 6 months now is the time to replace it.
  • Then drain the fuel tank also.
  • If its still have questions feel free to reply to this solution.

I have 2004 dodge 2500 with 5.9 cummings it has excessive blow by and blowing oil out slobber tube what is my problem


Loyd

I have 2004 Dodge 3500 w/ 5.9 Cummins , at about 80,000 miles I had excessive oil fumes coming from underneath the hood of the truck . Fumes came from the slobber tube . Took it to the dealership . At first they replaced the fuel rail . Problem got worse . Took it to the dealership again , Oil pan dropped , engine head removed , fuel tank checked , at my cost at first . Results , number one piston top pitted like some took a pick axe to it , parts of piston rings missing , number six piston top clean , but parts of the rings missing as well . This took 17 days for the dealership to find out and to agree to have the engine repaired under warrenty . 14 more days to order and install new engine and turbo . 31 days in total to repair an engine that is defective . Two other engine were in the shop at the same time with the same problem . I now have 100,000 miles on the truck and only 20,000 miles on the new engine with the signs of the oily fumes showing up again . So , rings crack , pieces make their way out of the engine block thru the turbo , back pressure in the crank force the oily fumes out of the slobber tube . That has been one of the problems I have experienced with my Dodge Ram . I am not impressed with my 2004 Dodge , however , my 1995 Dodge Ram was great . Is the new Cummins Engines a true diesel with a replacable cylinder sleeve ?

I hope that this is not your problem , but the fastest way is to check compression in each cylinder and crank case pressure .

Getting diesel in oil


Sounds like you might have a bad fuel injector that is dumping fuel in a cylinder that is running down the cylinder into the oil. Could be a fuel pressure regulator that is not holding it's pressure causing fuel to do the same thing.

Is it running good? Smoke a lot?

How to remove the oil pan on a 2004 dodge ram 2500 diesel


What motor is in it? Mostly have to take all the oil pan bolts out, undo the motor mounts and raise the motor up enough for the oil pan to clear the cross member. make sure you don't have too much in the way when you raise the motor, as you may break something.

1999 dodge ram 3500 cummings turbo diesel will not start.


Diesel engines fire on compression alone (usually 400psi).The Truck may have air trapped in the fuel system.When you perform any fuel system repair on a diesel it is going to take alot of cranking to get the air out. You can take the breather loose and shoot a VERY small amount of starter fluid in the intake and it should start. Do not use starting fluid much as it can damage the engine. Good Luck.

I am looking for the I.A.T. Sensor location on my truck


If your looking for the Intake Air Temp/Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor (IAT/MAP)(2003 model year and up) It is on the top of the intake manifold, just to the left of the #3 injector fuel line. There are 2 small Torx screws holding it.
