SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 2007 Dodge cummins diesel blowing white smoke on

'07 cummins engines are not to smoke at all. Cold, hot or upside down. If its smokin, its broken is the motto. '07 's are common rail fuel systems. I think you may have the DPF and the DOC exhaust system needs looked at. If no codes, have the dealer double check with ENSITE or comparable programs to check the engines crank and cam possitiion sensors to make sure they have the same rpm. you could have one going out. If just at startup you have smoke, may just be valve seals leaking. Good luck hope this helped.

by the way unburned fuel is black not white, thats oil...

SOURCE: number one injector bank on 2006 dodge cummins

you'll notice on your valve cover gasket there is two connectors.. the one up front is your 1-3 the one in the rear is your 4-6... you can remove your valve cover and check the connections from the injector connectors to the
connectors on the valve cover.. check for an open.. however you could also have a fault internally in 1 of your injectors in that bank as well.. hope this info helped..

What makes a 04 envoy run hot and lose oil?


A hot running engine is usually caused by a cooling system problem. Make sure the coolant level is full and the thermostat.. rad fan.. radiator cap and water pump are all functioning correctly. Make sure there are no restrictions in front of the radiator to obstruct air flow and coolant circulates properly throughout the radiator. As for losing oil, check for the obvious..... Leaks. If no major leaks and you have a high mileage engine, suspect the oil to be burning within the engine. A constantly hot running engine can also cause the oil to break down quicker resulting in consumption, especially if oil changes are neglected

My engine oil was changed by the RV dealer where I bought he 2007 Winnebago View with a 5 cylinder diesel. The oil is "black" and not clear like I am used too. Is that normal? Also if I have to...


If it is a cummins engine use Shell Rotella oil 15/40. This is what cummins recommends. Use the same if a mercedes engine. Black oil in a diesel is normal so don't worry.

Overheating


It's going to run hot, especially in hot weather but one big thing is what kind of coolant you are using. If it's dex-cool ( chevy and gm brand ) get it out of there and put some pre-mixed good coolant / water mix and it will help a whole lot. Just had the same problem with my 02' blazer. If the water pump and thermostat have been changed you should not be having a problem.

Cooling System


No you have air trapped in the cooling system, rasie the front of the car up as high as you can get it, fill the coolant bottlre to the top and run the engine for about 15 minutes at a high idle, let it cool down, it should purge itself of air once it is cool, make sure your radiator cap is good.

Dodge Cummins Diesel


short to ground from the signal wire. resistance to ground makes the needle move. if grounded or shorted to high(+) could cause irregular reading. if your gauge is mechanical you could have an oil filter thats bypassing into the oil cooler and not completely being filtered. good luck...

1991 dodge colt won't idle when engine is cold.


probably oil, it may be too thick when it's cold but once it warms up it liquefies and your engine runs smoothly. you could try changing oil, I'm guessing if you have a high performance oil the chances this is the problem may be greater since high performance things are usually geared towards working well when everything is hot
