I would look more at your injector pump than the lift pump....Dodge does have a problem with there fuel delivery ( not enough consistent PSI ) which in turn takes out the injector pump mainly because the pump has be running to lean...So look at replacing your delivery pump with something 14PSI or greater, unfortunately sounds as though you will have to get your injector pump either replaced or rebuilt

Hi my 2006 3.2 blows puffs of un-burnt diesel smoke intermittently after it has been driven in traffic


have the variable vanes in the turbo checked for correct operation
there is an actuator that is vacuum
electrical sensor controlled and the vanes may be sticking at slow engine operations as on traffic
the smoke color indicates incorrect air/fuel ratio and the turbo is a point to investigate

have you looked into the injectors, or injector balance? glow plugs just preheat the cylinders before you start turning the engine over. if the injectors are dumping too much fuel it will run rich and blow black smoke, lean it will dump white smoke, same as if it has an internal coolant leak, but smell different. Ford has had problems with EGR systems on some of their diesels, being an older truck how many miles is on it? and the front fuel tank could have a bad fuel pump, pretty common for them to do what you have described. Also might want to have the timing looked at on it! It ignites off of pressure, and if the timing is off it will adversely affect the ignition of the fuel which will make for hard starts, and poor running. there is a lot that needs to be looked at to figure this one out! could be quite a few different things. Good luck!

Diesel wont start


1. Make sure that the battery is fully charged.

2. Check the fuse for fuse # 30. This is the fuse for the:
Fuel Heater (Diesel only),
Wastegate Solenoid (Diesel only)
Injector Driver Module Relay Coil (Diesel only)

3. It is not uncommon for the fuel bowl heater (little wire in the bottom of the fuel bowl) to go bad. If the fuse is burnt, you can pull the small plug on the back of the fuel bowl to get around a bad fuel bowl heater.
As far as fuel leaking, a common problem is the water separator valve behind the fuel bowl. There are o-rings in there that tend to go, especially now that we're burning the ulsd. Do a search on water separator, and you'll find volumes of information and how-to's to swap out the o-rings.There's other reasons that you could have a fuel leak, but that is where I would start first. And welcome to The Diesel Stop.

Hope these helps and have a great day!

Have you changed your fast idle valve or air idel control valve I would change the air idle valve because it is the one with an electric sensor.

It's time for a Italian tune up!

The blue smoke can be one of two thing.

oil drop from the valve stem (from engine head to cyclinders)
or
diesel soot collect inside the exhaust system.

===
I will take a 5-10 minutes high rpm (not redline) ran on the highway.
Pay close attention to the rear view mirror and look for black diesel soot.
=== I will use Diesel Cleen or similar product to condition the fuel. (keep moisture down)
Use the recommended amount of SEAFOAM oil additive to condition the valve stem seal/rubber parts.

I can not rule out excessive blown by.
Can you get a diesel compression tester?
When was the last valve adjustment?

Please post the actual odometer on the engine and I will follow up on it.

Have you had the injector recall check carried out? There is a problem with these injectors and this produces the symptoms you are describing. I suggest that you contact Isuzu direct for help. They have been very helpful in the case of my trooper
