06 Rough idle

have an 06 cummins with a rough idle truck has no trouble starting no codes had injector drop test performed and all dropped the same... smoothes out when driving or at 1000+ rpms looking at the engine at idle the truck shakes more than the engine... can hear a slight knocking coming from bottom towards back of engine but changes pitch when pushing in the clutch... was told truck has a dual mass fly wheel i think thats what it was called and heard that they get out of balance and cause similar symtoms. any one else agree or have any other ideas to what else could be the problem have had this issue for about 2 years also have had a smarty on it and it didnt seem to make a difference with a chip at all. any ideas would be appreciated

Im having this same rough idle issue and when I rev it up it sputters and slowly rpms drop. Other then that its smooth in higher rpms just as yours.Everything has been serviced/inspeced on mine so I am curious what other have found also.

Good luck!


There are springs in the dual mass that wear out mine were but that didnt fix it. Just did injectors too, but my truck was down so long i forgot what normal was.
Check ac wires?
Fca?

i have talk to sheid diesel industrial beans diesel and several other and they all agree injectors my truck has all the same issues and sometimes it runs really well no white smoke ever and smoothes out around a thousand if i rev it up is slow to return to idle as if it almost bounces back to idle something else you guys should watch is your tach on start up mine will be below idle then i rev it up and it moves up a bit closer to idle but my truck does sit all week since i have a work truck.my truck has 115,000 they all say that around 135,000to 150,000 you start having return rate issues with the injectors everybody varies a bit but all agree on injectors.

hey i just got my 06 6 speed stnd. in sep. and had the same exact thing happening, pulled the trans and found my flywheel was screwed! The springs in there where so worn out it was unreal! for some reason, that makes no since on a diesel, they put springs in the stock flywheel and with that much torque they wear out fast... i only had 89K and they where worn out.... i went with a valair dual disk (kinda wish i had a single now due to bein noisey) came with new flywheel, bearings, clutch.... You dont want to put off changing your flywheel/clutch due to it can come apart and destroy you trans., bellhousing, and possibley your block.... not to mention the toll its taking on your crank and bearings... You can just change your flywheel but might as well change your clutch and all.... more cost/time effective....but btmn line id bet money its ur flywheel.... (and fyi i didnt belive the first 3 ppl that told me this)

Your clutch is smoked, mine did the exact same thing. Get a new clutch, preferably South Bend or Valair, before it takes out your transmission case.

I agree, it's sounds like your flywheel is coming apart. I had 2 buddy's with 06 trucks that both had the flywheel problem.new flywheel and clutches did the trick.

I know this wont help but i too had the rough idle and replaced the clutch, yes the spring were wore but didnt fix it. Had 3 injectors fail the test. Truck ran fine other the the slight rough idle...

If id do it over again i send injectors to exergy FIRST, spent over $5500 in clutch, jectos, arson (thought it was FCA, if not is upgraded)
Test fees, dealer test fees, rail guage......

If the noise changes when you push in the clutch, then YES. It is a clutch issue.

If you have a rough idle with slight knocking noise and it doesn't change when you push in the clutch pedal then it is most commonly injectors.
