Default major problems with 6.7 cummins

to all who are in the market for buying a 6.7 with all of that emission junk on the exhaust, DO NOT. I am a pipeliner working in chicago area. My contractor bought 10 of these 07 dodges' with the V8 cummins, they have all stalled andbrokedown and are currently being replacedby ford gas burners. Here's why, YOU CAN NOT IDLE THESE ENGINES. yea that's right, a diesel work truck that you can't idle. That's useless.


thank god i got one of the last ones

The 6.7 Cummins is a V8? I thought it was an I6.

all of these trucks started acting up after 1000 miles, engine lights coming on, then starving for air or fuel and finally stalling. The dealer told us we couldn't idle the trucks. it's 100 degrees, i'm in chicago traffic dead still, i'm gonna turn the truck off, right

The problem you were having is now resolved it just took a new program on mine and I havn't had trouble since. Anytime they come out with something new give them a little time to work the bugs out. I am sure they will do fine.

I would really like to hear from someone who has had both engines (close in years also). I am curios about how they drive.

I agree, new product, new issues, new fixes.
