I would like to know about one ignition issue in Cummins. Last week I was driving the truck to my home. At a particular point, I felt some acceleration issues, in the next moment the ignition went off. The vehicle was at normal speed and the road was not very crowded. So I could stop the vehicle safely without more troubles. My truck is a 2007 Dodge Cummins 5.9. What could be the reason behind this? I was thinking of consulting some local mechanics to solve this issue. But my friend told me to call the company straight. Which option would be better?
Dodge Ram/Cummins diesel owners continually strive for fuel economy and towing power. We've had an extensive discussion on these subjects and continue to seek best ways to improve performance and fuel efficiency. Our 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 with 5.9L turbo-diesel has been an ongoing test bed for fuel efficiency, performance and towing ability...We have maximized torque and performance through software tuning, improvements in towing ability, altered axle gearing and fine tuning tire diameter to match gearing. Use of oversized tires has driven many of these choices. As a practical consideration, all changes and modifications to the truck have respected OEM design and engineering. The baseline has been factory Mopar/Cummins diesel tune and factory equivalent gearing. In the interest of Cummins Ram truck owners who use oversized tires and a chassis lift, I have put together tuning tips, axle gearing comparisons and carefully picked wheels and tires that provide a framework for matching tires and gearing for fuel efficiency. The how-to HD video illustrates additional pointers on proper tire mounting and balancing for large, heavyweight or oversized tires. Here is the entire article and permanent URL page at the magazIne.
