Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #1

Dec 132013

Ram 2500 Laramie 5.9L Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 164,000 miles


Truck has been bullet proof for 10 yrs…only water pump replacement and usual tires/brakes. All synthetic after 5,000 miles. K& N air filter. Lucas fuel additive. Truck dies after running 1/2 minute. Had been idling slightly rough. SKIM Codes activated: P0628 (low voltage at lift pump) & P0633 (chip key sensor). Alarm works, and it would start. Replaced the filter/pump in tank with O.E.M., no Chinese crap on this truck. Replaced fuel filter near engine block. STILL A PROBLEM. It's now at the dealership..waiting to get screwed.

Seems this is a repeat problem, fuel sending issue. At least I got 165k before it died.
