the dodge 2500 and 3500 pickups equipped with the cummins 24 valve diesel has a defective fuel pump that can cause problems with the vehicle without notice. the trucks involved are '98.5 through '02 models. these pumps last as short as 30,000 miles. dodge knows of this problem and has refused to acknowledge it. this can cause a loss of power un-expectedly and create safety issues. it also leads to a much more consumer costly fix in that if it isn't replaced in time, the injection pump will fail due to lack of fuel flow. the excess fuel flow that the lift pump normally supplies is responsible for cooling and lubricating the fuel injection pump. the replacement of the injection pump can run $3,000. i had to replace mine at 40,000 mi as dodge won't replace it until it fails or has so low of pressure. as stated above, letting the lift pump completely fail or get into the low pressure range that dodge will replace it, the damage has already been done to the injection pump or the truck will fail to run or quit unexpectedly. thank you for any help you can give us. sincerely chris reynolds. *nlm

lift pump failure in 2002 dodge diesel pickup. loss of power followed with bucking/surging. this led to sudden drop in speed while towing an rv on the freeway. managed to get over to the right side as traffic was light and got off at next exit. could have resulted in accident if traffic was heavy. from what i've heard and read, this is a very common problem with these trucks and maybe should be investigated. *nlm

purchased a 2000 dodge intrepid from dadeland dodge in miami, fl. the car is qualified for the lemon law 3 months after purchase, but unaware of such a law and never filed. now it is too late. it is now i decided to take action since the engine blew on 04/12/03. my brother in law was driving and the engine just stopped without warning. i called for a tow truck to be taken to the dealer. the car has about 65,000 miles, and the extended warranty should have covered the repairs; however, the dealer declined. i ended up paying $2,714.87 to get the engine rebuilt. in addition, i also don't have a car for 2 months, and disputed with the dealer and extended warranty company during that span. *la

my dodge ram 2500 diesel truck loss power and would not run well at all. i asked archer dodge on jan 20, 2004 to find and fix the problem. a fuel transfer pump, part # 5080885aa (replacement pump #) was installed for a total of $500. the failure of this pump in this vehicle is common and is documented in an article by chuck arnold "what happens to dodges". failure of the injector pump, a $2000 replacemnet job is common when the charge pump fails, i was lucky. dodge recalled defective pumps installed in all trucks built 7 days prior to the day my truck was built. i feel i got one of the older pumps for one thing and that dodge should pay for the work. the other thing is that there is no idiot light or guage telling you there is a problem with the charge pump. i am looking for a retrofit so i can monitor this pressure and prevent damage to my fuel injection pump in the future. this engine should run for 1,000,000 miles and i dont want the possibility of a $3000 workover every 60,000 to 120,000 miles ( the estimated length of time before failure for the charge pump.) failure of this system is total and if it happens at the wrong place could cause loss of life, fire, and serious personal and property damage. i would like to see dodge recall all units and retrofit them with a device that monitored the discharge pressure of the charge pump, notifying the driver that a failure of the fuel system is eminant. this could be done with an additional gauge or even a engine warning light. i have called dodge and opened a complaint #12000342, but i did not get the satisification of hearing that it was a serious problem to them. if it is common knowledge that this failure occurs, why not alert the customers of dodge that it is a probem. even though my truck was not recalled, it appears it should have been based on what i have learned from other owners and dodge. thank you for any assistance you may be able to provide.

the computer "pm module" and related components keep failing on my new 2002 dodge intrepid. the last time this happened i was in rush-hour traffic and the car died right in ther middle of the freeway while traveling at 60mph. this put me direct risk of an accident. the pmmodule controls the ignition coils and the fuel pump and fuel injectors and throttle positioning sensor. i have had the car serviced for this problem 3 other times and the dodge dealership where i bought the car has not yet fully been able to fix the cause of the problem just the after effects. *ak

1. the first incident, may 11,2000 was a recall for the replacement of the transfer pump due to premature internal armature shaft bushing wear. this was a recall by dodge. the second incident occurred august 24,2004. 2. the failure causes the vehicle to run extremely rough, and makes the vehicle was not drivable. failure at highway speeds would cause a sudden slowdown of the vehicle. 3. in both instances, the transfer pump had to be replaced. currently, this vehicle only has 31,000 miles on it. the cost to replace these pumps can be extremely expensive to the vehicle owner. this appears to be a significant problems with dodge trucks which have the cummins diesel engine.*ak

i recently experienced this while i driving with trailer in tow and had loss of power. being followed by traffic i was unable to accelerate up the hill. i have also experienced problems when turning into traffic the loss of power and unable to accelerate has caused other drivers to perform drastic braking and maneuvering to avoid collisions. what happens is the engine does not respond to the fuel pedal input. i have checked the codes on the dodge ram 2500 equipped with the 5.9l cummins turbo diesel and have found a p0216 code indicating the bosch vp44 injection pump is not communicating with the ecm. there appears to be a defect in the vp44 computer talking with the ecm. this was not the first time the "dead pedal" issue occurred. this first started around 36000 miles after a long highway trip coming to a stop after which the engine stayed at idle and would not accelerate. currently it has become more consistent. i have noticed that this occurs when the weather changes drastically or the engine has been worked and is hot. i am starting to believe that the computer mounted on the vp44 is losing connectivity due to the computers susceptibility to extreme temperatures. i have researched failures concerning the vp44 and have noted that on the cummins isb engine there have been many failures of this integral engine component. this engine is found in many other applications such as school buses, rv's, and light duty truck applications. after researching the multiple failures the majority of the fixes for this issue has been to replace the vp44 injection pump. i would encourage the nhtsa to investigate said issues and take appropriate action to remedy the faulty equipment on this engine. this is a significant safety concern which needs to be resolved due the engines applications in school buses, rv's and light duty trucks. -regards chad mckinney
