Hi my name is Tom and I am here to help.

If a pressure device work and then does not, I suspect the sending unit is at fault. Like the binary code for computers, it works or does not, nothing in between. If you would like I could walk you through this easy fix.

Let me know if I can be of further help.

Why do i not have any oil pressure at a idle on a 2004.5 5.9 cummins?


If you have LOST Oil Pressure (Verified by the Gauge), then you could either have a clogged Oil Passages and no oil to move or worn Bearings or a Bad Oil Pump. DODGE has a HUGE ISSUE with SLUDGE. Adding a FLUSH (I actually use Diesel Fuel) in the Oil (2 quarts of Diesel for every 6 quarts of Oil) (this has worked for me for years and taught to me by a NASCAR OFFICIAL. Do not DRIVE the vehicle, but let it Idle for 20 Minutes while Monitoring Temperature. If the Oil Pressure is Truly ZERO, then Raise the RPM to get Oil Pressure UP to prevent any damage (lowest RPM to get Oil Pressure). After doing this for 20-30 minutes, Drain the Oil and change the Oil and Filter. Use a HIGHER OIL (20W-50) and see what happens. If the Oil Pressure goes up, then you probably have a clearance issue with your Main / Rod Bearings... If the Pressure goes down to Zero after it raises to Temp, then you need to change the Pump and Bearings.... Good Luck

2005 dodge 3500 5.9 cummins,it died driving down the road.will not start blows white smoke trying to start.oil leaking at back of turbo,checked turbo bearing seem fine.


You have a blown turbo.You have to replace the turbo the oil is going into the turbo and being recycled into the engine and being put into the cylinders if you keep driving it the way it is you will eventually blow the engine. It will high RPM and be running on oil it is called a runaway turbo. It will burn every ounce of oil in your engine in a matter of min utes and your engine will seize up before you know it.It is an exspensive part to replace but it is a very easy thing to change even for the most un mechanical person.Make sure you change your oil & filter at the same time because you will probably have diesel fuel in your oil as well.The bearing does not have to be bad in order for the turbo to be bad.

1999 dodge diesel 2500 seems to have a fuel related problem.


Please clarify the "loosing power" does it lose power and shut down or does it loose power but will idle? Your Cummins is electronically controlled so oil condition is important, fuel leaks, oil leaks, leaks in the air ducting between the turbo and the intake, sensors, water in the fuel. Do you get an engine light when this trouble happens? Dodge uses a lift pump to carry fuel to the the injection pump, is it working?

Engine replacement


any of the non computerized aka 12 valve cummins will interchange going from the p7100 pump on the 94 to the ve injection pump on the 92 may mean rerouting some of the fuel lines to hook it up. make sure you use all the sensors from the 94 engine though so all your gauges read correctly other than the fuel system the engines are identical though so should have no issues doing this

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
