Default i hate the #%&@%$ dealer!!!

o.k well after my truck sits over night it will fire ok but will stumble into a start and smoke like a freaght train (white smoke) for a few then start to clear up...truck runs fine but we all know i have an injector/injectors bleeding the rail into the cylinders....now i take it to my local 5 star and of course i drop it off tel them the symptoms a week later he tells me it didnt act up for them...i go to pic it up and godamnit stumbles and smokes when i started it. and by the time i went back in it was clear and i have no codes what do i do besides give them my truck for days on end and how do i get my injectors looked at? its like pulling teeth out of a grizzly bears mouth...sorry i just felt the need to rant

Yea...but don't you work for a dealer like I do? [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laughing.gif[/img]

Not knowing what they have done, there are times when we look at a truck and can't duplicate the problem. It sucks, but does happen sometimes.

Chad, I warned you about trading in your Diesel Power magazine "truck of the month." [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/whistle.gif[/img]

Can't you just take your truck to someplace like a local injection shop, a Cummins/Freightliner dealer, Fleet pride, or a Peterbuilt dealer and get the injectors tested? Maybe not Peterbuilt so much, unless that's your only option.

Especially if the dodge dealer doesn't seem to know anything.

CSIXER,

It sounds like you actually have a one-star dealer (if that) and they don't have a knowledgible diesel tech in the place. This is a tune that you hear repeatedly on this forum.

First of all, make sure that you have tried the killer dose of injector cleaner (with MMO) and driven the snot out of it. That will often clean out fouled injectors. If that hasn't worked, you need to find another dealer and turn up the heat. Give the other dealer a shot at it, and then if you are not satisfied, take it up the ladder. Tell the dealer that you want to talk to the district service representative. This will usually get results.

It's unfortunate that some dealerships are not competent in servicing the Cummins diesel. Keep us posted.

Good luck.

Have fun getting another dealer to be any better. (No offence to any dealer mechanics).
Your best bet would be to remove your injectors yourself, pay the hours labour to have them bench tested, then have the results sent to your dealership.
Explain to your dealership what you are going to do befroe you do it. Also ask them if they have a Injector test shop they recommend.
Good luck keep us posted

As CTD says, good luck. Dodge does not think there is anything wrong with the injectors so they aren't interested in fixing them.
