The p1690 is the transfer pump code I believe. Unfortunately the engine will run without a good transfer pump for awhile. Eventually the main injection pump will fail due to lack of fuel pressure. The main injection pump requires 6 psi minimum. When the main pump fails and this is the unfortunate part it's trash. It is possible you just lost enough fuel psi that it died and a 160 dollar lift pump will fix you up. I would suggest a fuel psi gauge on all 98 and a half through 2002 dodge diesels. A 80 dollar gauge can save you about 1800 dollars and that 1800 is if you do it yourself.

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.
