fuel guage is broken for the second time. first was under warranty in 1999. the sending unit was replaced. now it is broken again but the dealer says it is out of warranty and will cost $$$. after speaking with other owners and some mechanics i found this to be a common problem and feel it sould be a recall item.

my complaint concerns my vehicle and several thousand others that belong to members of the turbo diesel register. the reason im writing is in hopes that we can get a safety issue addressed, and corrected once and for all. there has been a repeated trend over several years now concerning the lift pump (fuel transfer pump) utilized in the 2500/3500 cummins diesel application. i am a member of the failed lift pump club and have experienced this lift pump failure on my 2000 3500 dodge ctd. this failure causes the truck to loose power and sometimes die. this can be life threatening if the truck owner is on the highway towing a loaded trailer. i how own a 2002 3500 ctd and would like this design problem corrected. i am not alone in this concern, there are thousands of 1998.5 - 2002, 24 valve cummins turbo diesel owners that are concerned and have complained to dodge about this problem with no resolution. this can be documented by going to the turbo diesel register on the web. http://www.turbodieselregister.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=75368&perpage=15&pagenumber=2. *nlm

dodge ram lift pump failures failure of fuel system fuel oil transfer pump (lift pump) leads to immediate engine stalling. when towing (as which truck is designed for), upon engine shutdown at hwy speeds, immediate loss of power brake and steering performance. this leads to loss of control of trailer and/or load. property damage and fatalities would be dependent upon drivers experience level while towing. mfg (damilerchysler) knows of the problem, in some cases will replace pump dependent upon detailed proof from vehicle owner. not all dealers following company policy and is will actually flat refuse to address that a problem exists, even though the mfc has issued a tech service bulletin (tsb). *nlm

i purchased a 2003 dodge 2500 with the so cummins' diesel engine. i noticed the strong smell of diesel fumes when idling with the fan and/or air conditioner on. i have only had the truck about forty days. i assumed the smell was because the engine was new. i noticed small plumes of oily residue forming on the windshield above the air vents. i had the truck detailed and the inside windshield polished. the plumes appeared again after several days. they are not water vapor because they remain on the windshield after the truck has been parked for hours. i can only assume that my wife and i have been inhaling raw diesel fumes for over a month. the truck is currently at the dealer's shop in an attempt to fix this. he has no idea where the fumes are coming from. i don't think i want to keep a new vehicle where the ventilation ducting is saturated with diesel residue. it has 1,955 miles on it.

2001 dodge ram 2500 diesel truck. there have been a large number of problems with the fuel systems on these trucks. dodge has not done anything to correct the bad design of the fuel pumps. my truck like others has run very well, but the fuel pump has gone out, the truck began to act up when i would get to 1/4 of tank left in diesel. the fuel gauges have become a major problem on these trucks as it begins to malfunction and display incorrect fuel amounts. which in a diesel if your run out of fuel you begin to have major problems. the fuel pump design on the 2000-2002 diesels was changed to a electronic system. this new design of pump system which consits of the lift pump and the injector pump, has not been very relieble. the mechanic which has worked on my truck has stated that thier is a major problem with this system on these trucks and a recall is needed to remedy the problem. a internet message board (http://www.turbodieselregister.com/) has also acknowledged the problem and has contacted dodge on the issue. unless the dot becomes involved and issues a recall on these trucks, i feel dodge will not step up and take care of the problem.*ak
