problem #2

Ram 2500 4WD 6-cyl Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 53,087 miles
2004 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel pickup all six injectors have went out twice and Chrysler has refused T do anything about it. The first time they went out the pickup naturally died and the power steering went out at 75 mph on a curve in North Dakota causing a near accident. As a result when the injectors went out it filled my crankcase with fuel which poses a possible explosion factor. Chryser blamed it on my chip but it happened again with out the chip leading me to believe there is an obvious design flaw that could lead to the possible death of the operator.

Ram 2500 4WD 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,000 miles
I have a 2004 Dodge Ram cummins turbo diesel truck. Around Aug 14 2006 I had a fuel injector fail. The result is a crankcase full of fuel which exits the engine out of the overflow at the rear of the engine, this in turn causes fuel to cover the rear of the engine and underside of the truck. Again last weekend Sept 17th I had another failure. I believe that the combination of fuel and hot exhaust is a fire waiting to happen. The dealer other than a warranty repair denies that there is a problem but on various web sites I keep hearing about others having the same problem. I think this is a time bomb waiting to happen that could kill or severely hurt someone from a resulting fire.
