Written by the factory, this is the original manual that Dodge mechanics used to train new mechanics how to troubleshoot fuel injected diesels. Learn about fuel characteristics, additives, winter fuel issues, injector testing, injection pump, injectors, electric fuel transfer pump, fuel filter, fuel lines, fuel tank, Cummins engine controller, JTEC, ECM, sensors and sensor diagnosis, intake air heaters, and turbocharger (operation, service, wastegate, air filter, and emissions).
Some portions of the book cover all Dodge Cummins diesels back to 1989, explaining how the engines have changed over the years, and others focus more exclusively on mid-1998 changes (when the book was originally written). For example, the opening chapters review diesel fundamentals and review what kinds of issues can cause exhaust smoke, which applies to 1989 and newer models. A subsequent section focuses on the Bosch VP44 fuel injection pump, which is new for 1998. This book has the most information on the 24 valve engine introduced in mid-1998 and continued through 2002. It often addresses how the new diesel differs from 1989-1993 and 1994-1998 models. With step-by-step instructions, clear pictures, exploded view illustrations, schematics, and specifications, you will have the information you need to get your project on the road and keep it there.
