Ram 3500 Diesel

  • 42,560 miles


Diesel, 5.9 while driving at 50mph the check engine light illuminated and shortly there after the engine stopped running all together. I was able to safely stop the pickup along the shoulder of the roadway. I noticed the smell of diesel fuel and the left side of the engine was covered in diesel. After my pickup was towed home I researched the symptom and discovered I wasn't alone with this issue. It seems the bolt that holds a clamp around the fuel line to the number four cylinder backs out allowing movement or vibration to this fuel line and a leak develops in the high pressure line and diesel fuel to spray into the engine. In addition to the potential fire hazard from the diesel fuel the sudden loss of power is very concerning. I found several posts on forums regarding this same issue. The parts guy at cummins said he has sold as many as 6-7 of these fuel lines per month. I can only imagine how many fuel lines were sold at the Dodge dealerships around the unites states.

2007 Dodge Ram 3500. Consumer writes in regards to warranty claim the consumer stated he would like a written explanation as to how the banks Ram cold air intake and the banks tech- cooler intercooler system caused the failure, since that was the basis for his denial of warranty coverage. The consumer was informed the failure was due to vehicle modifications. The consumer stated he has been to the dealer several times, due to fuel starvation issues. The vehicle was said to have been repaired. However, 10,000 miles after the 100,000 warranty had expired the consumer began experiencing problems again, which led to the injectors malfunctioning again. The consumer stated it would cost $5,1000 to resolve all six injector issues. The consumer was informed all six needed injectors needed to be replaced in order to have the proper balance of fuel injected into the engine. Updated 03/20/12 updated 03/29/12.
