#157 of 852 Dodge Ram 2500 04.5' surging no check engine light on
May 26, 2007 (11:26 am)
I have a 2004.5 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel it's been in the shop twice they changed the MAP sensor the first time with no change.The second time they said nothing was wrong!The problem is at about 1500-2000 RPM the engine surges like it wants to die.It had the Edge Juice on it and it kept giving me injector problem codes so I pulled it out now there are no codes but it surges every time I come to a stoplight or at 15-2000 RPM.When I get into the throttle it seems to clear up.I have a buddy that said it may be the crank shaft or cam shaft sensor?It has Air Raid cold air intake,6" magnaflow exhaust,40" tires with 20" wheels,air bag suspension,14" lift fit,dual Fox shocks all around,dual stabilizer arm, I have ordered the Bully Dog Triple Dog with outlook monitor,CFM intake,BD lift pump,I am considering a set of Dynamite injectors 90hp.With all this time and money invested and it runs like crap I'm going nuts HELP!!!
#158 of 852 Ram 3500 accelleration problems
May 28, 2007 (5:43 pm)
I have a 2004 3500 4x4 Dodge Ram Diesel with about 63000 miles. On occasion, decreasingly, I lose almost all power and cannot accelerate - but, the engine keeps running at a low idle. If I pump the accelerator, power is soon restored - this can take anywhere from 2 or 3 seconds up to about 30 seconds. I have changed the fuel filter - the problem hasn't stopped although with passing time it appears to happen less frequently. The check engine light comes on, however, if i stop the truck overnight, with plans to have the truck computer checked - the check engine does not come on and the computer shows no history of problems.
#159 of 852 Cummins stall no power

I Have a 2002 dodge 3500. Intermitingly the rpm will not go above 1500 especaly on a steep hill. It also seams to surge in the morning (cold) and on the hwy. The surging isn't really noticeable but its there. I'm thinking it's a fuel delivery problem but not sure?

Well here we go with all kinds of problems. At about 30,000 door locks kept opening and closing. took to the dealer and were supposedley repaired but truck had no power. complained and complained until I guess it burned out the turbo because they had put the wrong codes in the transmission at this time. At about 68000 kms the dealer replaced burned out turbo. Ran okay but not great. Should say that we put on 30 hp chip at about 7000 kms. Now this spring while driving check engine light came on and had no power. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the lift pump and the injection pump. After about 1000 kms while driving down the road the other day if completely stopped on me. Started right away again and I continued about another 50 kms. I drove it around town all afternoon shopping. On the second last stop when I started it...it was surging. I drove about a block to my next stop and shut it off. When I finished at that location, I went to start it and it died 3 times before it would run. When I did get it started I could only get 40kph out of it. Had it towed 400 kms back to the dealer. They say it had a weird code. What I don't know. They unhooked the chip and say it runs fine. It runs out of warranty in about a week...so I need any advice I can get. Could it be the engine control box? Anyone else had similar problems?
#161 of 852 truck stops when at 1/4 tank of fuel
Jun 09, 2007 (7:56 pm)
Here is an ongoing probelm my dad is having with a 2002 3500. When he gets to about 1/4 tank of fuel it stops and won't start again. He has had the lift pump replaced and about 4 injection pumps replaced. The last fix was new lines to the injectors. It has 129,00 kms on it. He has it chipped...but even with the chip removed he still has the same problem. Any ideas?

I'd say drop the tank and look for a problem there. If it happens at 1/4 tank no matter what else happens or changes, then the computer may think it's empty.

#163 of 852 95 2500 Turbo Diesel Oil Pressure Problem
Jun 17, 2007 (7:17 am)
In the early years, the oil pressure built up and shoewd 40 psi fast on the guage after the engine was started. 230,000 miles later it takes a couple seconds to show pressure build up after the old girl starts up. Now that is from a cold start after she has been sitting overnight. Warm engine even after sitting an hour or so, you crank the engine the oil pressure appears asap. Wear in the oil pump allowing oil column on the suction side to drain back into the pan, losing prime? Any other idea's? Other email address is Sailhighseasaol.com. Bill
#164 of 852 dusted dodge?
Jun 20, 2007 (5:56 am)
Here is my story,
I have a dodge 2500 with the cummins desiel, the truck is driven empty
and gets approx. 200-300km per day, empty. No after market parts on
engine or exhaust. The truck gets regular service and I have been more
than pleased with it, good mileage ,good power, starts great, no
complaints...until, On Jan6, 2007, the truck has 159,225km and I am
driving home and there is a slight knocking which increases in the space
of 20 seconds, there is a loud explosion and fire, I get the truck
pulled over and open the hood and shovel snow onto the fire to put it
out.............towed to dealership......get call back two days
later, Dodge dealer, we are sorry the engine has been dusted and ran
out of oil and seized we refuse to cover the warranty. They removed the
turbo and head to make this call. NOTE: there is three large holes in
the block just above the oil pan,where you can see a loose connecting
rod. They refused to remove the oil pan and simply stated they have
seen dust in the air intake and they measured the cylinders (without
removing the oil pan at any time) and have come to the conclusion it has
been dusted; NOTE: we have had 2 -4 feet of snow since november 1.
I had the engine replaced at a private dealer and had the oilpan removed
to survey the damage. We found an oilpan full of oil, we found the two
bolts which hold the connecting rod on the crankshaft, in the oil pan,
one slightly bent, threads intact on both. The motor had been using no
oil previously and the oil had been checked approx. 200km before this
Can you shed some light on why this happened and has this happened to
I am currenlty fighting for warranty,
#165 of 852 Re: 2500 tires 35s? [huwenfut]
Jun 20, 2007 (12:22 pm)
I know it might be late, but I just joined this forum, I have a 04/2500 dodge with a 5" procomp lift and 35's, the 35's will rub badly when turning or running on uneven ground if you dont have a lift. The 33's fit nicely and dont rub, I ran them previously and they looked great with a stock truck.
hope this helps,
#166 of 852 02 2500 cummins. No acceleration!!
Jun 30, 2007 (11:11 am)
problem has started recently...while driving the truck will loose controle of the throtle. You can floor it and the truck does nothing. The truck will remain at the same speed that u were traveling, when it started acting up. While doing this if go up an incline the truck will loose speed and rpm at a pretty quick rate. When this happins the truck has no boost and wont build any either( according to my gages.)
To get this problem to stop, you have hit the clutch and floor the trottle one or twice then let out on the clutch and the truck will take off again. Ive checked the fuel pressure and it is fine. I would extremely appriciate if anyone could share some knowledge and clue me in one how to fix this this problem...
