There’s nothing more satisfying than a good turbo system.
Known for their versatility and toughness, diesel engines are the first choice for many truck owners—and among those engines, Dodge®/Ram® Cummins® turbo diesels consistently rise to the top of the pack. Since 5.9L engines produced between 1991 and 2010 provide reliability you can count on, don’t trust their repairs to anything less than top-quality service
There’s a reason diesels typically utilize compound turbo setups instead of twin turbochargers.

It is specifically engineered for use in smaller American diesel pickups, vans, cars and SUVs.
Before the EPA started snooping around, there were relatively few restrictions on diesels. That’s starting to change.
There are a lot of 2009-2015 diesel Jettas, Bugs and Golfs hitting used car lots even after the Dieselgate scandal.
Rislone Diesel Fuel System Treatment (P/N 4740) includes the equivalent amount of additives as full bottles of: ULSD sulfur substitute lubricity additive; injector and complete fuel system cleaner; UCL pump and injector lubricant; anti-gel cold flow improver; fuel stabilizer and water remover; and cetane booster and diesel treatment.
Tenneco is supplying the complete hot-end aftertreatment system for diesel applications, which includes the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst, the mixer and the SCR-Coated Diesel Particulate Filter with an SCR substrate in a fully-assembled module with sensors.
One of the most overlooked preventive maintenance items in a diesel engine is the coolant system. Maintaining the coolant system is just as important as an oil change – in fact, the coolant condition in a diesel engine may even be more important than in a gasoline engine.
The increased use of EGR valves has led to a bigger problem with soot. So, in order to trap the soot, the government has mandated that all trucks built after Jan. 1, 2007, have a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and a catalytic converter. In simple terms, the DPF is a huge screen that traps the soot coming from the engine. This filter looks like a rocket shell underneath newer trucks. The DPF has temperature sensors and pressure tubes used by the PCM to help in determining when the DPF screen is full. When the DPF needs cleaning it undergoes what is called “regeneration.”
One thing that has been discovered with diesel fuel injection is the higher the pressure at which it is injected creates more efficiency. The purpose of common rail injection is to deliver high-pressure fuel to the injector. Fuel in a common rail system will be injected into the combustion chamber through the injector nozzle at pressures as high as 28,000 psi. This is far from the mechanical systems of the past that would inject fuel into the combustion chamber at 2,000 to 3,000 psi.
