    thank you for replying to my comment about the 2006 dodge. I just can't believe anyone would be that deceptive,to sell a vehicle that is not running right.
    We called the dealer, he told us to take it to the dodge garage and he would work with us. Hopefully that means, we wont have to go it alone. We just drove it home yesterday and the problem started.
    Thanks to this site for getting input for me.

You can bet they turned it off right before you got it, so the light would not be on when you picked it up.. In order for the light to come on, the computer runs tests. if a test fails 2 times, it turns the light on. they knew it had a problem, period. If you have a contract I think you have 3 days to back out. I am probalbly wrong,but try it anyhow, bluff them. Tell them you want it fixed. Car dealer or private sale??? if its a private sale, you may be stuck. Call dealer be nice and tell them the light is on, play dumb and tell them you want it fixed, dont sign anything.

    if its a delaer, talk to the sales manager, if you cant get him to do anything, talk to the general manger, it cant hurt to ask. dont be any kind of *** about it, just be nice, explain you thought you were buying a truck without any problems. the squeaky wheel gets the grease ; )

Need to fix my 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 dually,6.7 Cummings diesel, check engine light code P2002

P2002 - Diesel Particulate Filter Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1)
Description: The powertrain control module(PCM) monitors the efficiency of the diesel particulate filter for a concern. The efficiency of the filter is determined by the amount of restriction in the filter for a certain exhaust flow rate. The diesel particulate filter is preconditioned for 5,000 km (3,107 miles) before the PCM begins to monitor the level of restriction. The test fails when the measured level of restriction is less than the expected level calculated by the PCM. Possible Causes:
  • Dirty air cleaner element
  • Recent manual or thorough diesel particulate filter regeneration
  • Aftermarket accessories and performance modifications
  • Modified tailpipe
  • Exhaust leaks before or near the diesel particulate filter pressure sensor
  • Leaks in the diesel particulate filter pressure sensor connecting hose
  • Damaged diesel particulate filter
Diagnostic Aids: Check for leaks in the exhaust system. Check for aftermarket exhaust accessories and performance modifications that decrease the exhaust restriction. If a new diesel particulate filter was recently installed, verify the diesel particulate filter parameter reset procedure was carried out.

Serious understeer with 96 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually

Are the tie rod ends tight? Is the trac bar (frame end) tight? The steering boxes on these trucks require more input that a 1/2 ton truck or a car. How is the alignment? The caster on these should be set to about 5 degrees, the original specs allow a lot of wandering.
