Cummins 5.9 l Fuel Pump diagnosis and repair options

The fuel system of a Cummins 5.9 l engine is a bit more complicated than what you would expect from a diesel engine. The engine actually needs two separate fuel pumps. The lift pump draws the fuel straight from the fuel tank. It is then syphoned to the main injection pump which feeds the engine.

With such an elaborate system, there’s more chance of something going wrong. If and when it does, you need a good mechanic to sort your problems out. San Diego County can rely on PCE for all diesel related troubles, whether it’s cars, boats or other machinery.

6.0L Turbo Repair: Common Turbo Problems and Upgrades

When Ford 6.0l Power Stroke first appeared in 2004, it was considered revolutionary because it achieved quicker turbo response while meeting the strict emission regulations. At the time, it outdid competitors such as Chrysler’s Cummins and GM’s Duramax. However, the engine proved to be a little bit more volatile than expected, so ultimately it had to be recalled several times. Many problems that kept arising even lead to a number of class action lawsuits.

Still, 6.0l Power Stroke is still widely used today and it perfectly normal to say that it’s considerably safer and more efficient than back in the day.

How is that possible?

Guide to 6.6l Duramax Fuel Injector Repair, Replacement and Common Issues

When it was released back in 2001, the 6.6L Duramax engine was considered the apogee of diesel engine design. The fact that the original design has not changed, but has only been improved upon, speaks for itself. However, before all the modifications the later models were equipped with, Duramax was not problem-free.

In our previous article, we’ve talked about some of the most common issues early models suffered from. And most of those issues had one word in common: injectors. Injectors for 6.6l Duramax diesel, especially in its earlier incarnations, had a bad habit of failing before the engine reached a certain mileage.

A failing injector can cause a number of problems, most commonly leaking fuel into the engine. As these injectors were often very expensive and difficult to repair, the manufacturer was forced to extend the warranty and improve the design.
