Default 6.7 diesel problems

We love Dodge trucks. I have an 04 5.7 Hemi- It's Great. Had an 05 5.7- was great. My boyfriend has 2 2007 Dodge a 3500 Dualy 5.7- Great, But just purchased a 6.7 Cummins Diesel 2500- I'ts a lemon. The first ever in our experience as Dodge Truck owners.
Purchased the truck in June of 07 and it has been to the service dept. 3 times. With the check engine light on and while it is on it consumes lots of diesel. The Service Dept. re-programmed the computer, etc on 8-9-07 since then the check engine light has turned on twice. Now on the overhead message board, I get a message that only 80% of engine capacity is working. In addition to wasting lots of diesel, it is a major incoveninence driving this vehicle to the service dept. while the service dept. is already overloaded and no to mentionloss of use for the vehicle.
With the excellent name that Dodge has kept in vehicle performance, maybe they will either recall the emmission problems which keeps causing this problem or do the right thing and not be like some of the other vehicles and be considered to sell lemons.

if it gets to the point where he's getting ready to trade it in. . .get him to find a 5.9L. while the 6.7's do show alot of promice, there are still alot of bugs to be worked out, the 5.9's have been, and will always be a good choice for reliability.

also no emissions BS. . .but I will also say there are a few here that have had zero issues from their truck. . .it is truly a gamble even when you have an engine that has the track record the ISB's have.

This is the very reason why I purchased my 2007 Dodge with the 5.9L in June of this year. I had to contact 65 dealers in the NEto find one to my liking.
The 5.9L is simplya great motor with long history of reliability.

2007 Dodge Ram 3500 6.7

Well, I have the same problem…but went to service four times…it’s in service now as I write this. Computer has been re-programmed and gas mileage also gets really poor when check engine light comes on. I’m about to claim “Lemon Law” on this truck. Also had an ABS problem. What a major disappointment. Nothing like spending 50K and having it in the shop 50% of the time. Don’t get me wrong….I love this truck but someone needs to get this problem fixed.

You need to make sure that you are using the right diesel fuel. If you are not using ultra low sulfer diesel fuel, the problem will never go away. Read on the pump and make sure it says ULTRA low sulferdiesel.

How much highway driving do you do? The computer won't burn off the soot in the DPF unless you get some highway miles in there, at least that is how I think it works. I know they had an update to the computer that helped fix this issue.

my dad has a 07 6.7L 3500 megacab shortbed dually which has been in the shopmore than50 times in the last 9 months. (no exageration!!!)he has filed for lemon law and they are just jackin him around! [:@]he has made calls to his dealership managers sat down with them, called dodge directly, the states attorney and everything here to there. he has been back to the dealership 3 times this week. he's had the particulate filter changed 2 times, reset computer codes every time, pulled the original turbo out and put in a new one, updated computer codes, flashed the computer i dont know how many times, and he's been to the dealer 3 different times in one day before. go in in the morning with check engine light on, they'll flash the computer, he'll pull out of the lot and the light would come on within 2 miles. and on and on. you get the idea. we have had NOTHING but mopar vehicles since 1999 and love them. weve had 7 or 8 2500 5.9 cummins and NEVER a single problem! i have a jeep my mom has a jeep my girlfriend has a jeep and weve all had them since 2000. we love dodge and chrysler products, but never expected this from the new 6.7 diesel. he loves the truck even though he's been through all this crap.

Wow, Sorry to hear of all the problems with the 6.7L. Hopefully they'll get it all straightened out real soon. I'm sure they are still working the bugs out with these new engines and all the new pollution control equipment on them. I bought my '07 2500 with the 5.9L last May 2007. According to thesalesman, there was only one left on the lot with the 5.9L at the time. The other pickups had the new 6.7L. If I waited any longer, I probably wouldn't be able to get one with the 5.9L in it.This is my first Dodge diesel pickup and I love it. I've had no problems with it (knock on wood).The '95 GMC 6.5L diesel that I had before can not hold a candle to this truck, even though the old truck had been a good truck for me.

All this negative 6.7 talk is making me nervous. I have had mine for 4 months now, and have 5,150 miles on it and havent had any problems other than an oil leak and now my stereo. How many miles did your dads truck have on it before the problems started?

I bought my truck new from the dealer with 4900 miles (dealer demo) and have put another 3000 trouble free miles on 'er in 6 weeks. Not a single CEL for me so far. This is my daily driver and weekend camper tow rig, I always put in ULSD from a reputable station and always use my jake brake.

Of course you know I just jinxed myself ...
