It sounds like to me your fuel is bleeding back and cavitating your injector pump.
I would think that there should be some sort of check valve on the fuel system to keep that fuel in the injector.
Please let me know what you find

Cummins diesel in 2001 Dodge is cutting out and mild surge. code#s are P0500,P0370 P1693


you have codes related to the pcm, transfer pump and a vehicle speed sensor. these could be related or all individual issues. related issued could be wiring, untill you start doing testing it will be hard to tell.
start cheap and test the speed sensor first, then you can clear the codes and continue on any codes come back.


Disconnect the PCM harness connector(s).
Disconnect the Vehicle Speed Sensor harness connector.
Note: Check connectors - Clean/repair as necessary.
Measure the resistance of the 5 Volt Supply circuit between the VSS harness
connector and the PCM harness connector.
Is the resistance above 5.0 ohms?

I have a 98 dodge 24 valve cummins. Truck would


Harry,there are two failure modes for your problem. If you get a C.E.L. when the problem happens, you will be able to retrieve the codes and will probably find TPS circuit failure codes.The TPS (or APPS) has a flat spot and at the magic position, will drop the engine to an idle.A couple of full throttle applications on the pedal will usually cure the porblem for the moment.Replace the sensor assembly (very expensive).The other mode is a similar drop to idle but without a C.E.L. This is usually corrected by shutting the truck off and re-starting it.This indicates a brain failure on the VP44 injection pump.The solder joints become crystallised on the circuit board from excessive heat cycles. This will create poor connections on the board and cause a loss of power and drop to idle.You can either replace the pump (also very expensive) or if you are mechanically inclined, you can source a brain and solenoid assembly and replace it on the pump. Hope this helps. Ken

The check valve on the fuel line at the filter housing may be leaking back not maintaining pressure when the engine is not running.

Possibly the emergency fuel shut off valve, heavy impact is intended to shut fuel supply off, may be getting faulty, sometimes really rough bumpy roads can shut supply off, check your manual to see if equipped.
