Get the cold cranking rail pressure measured.
these will not start if RP is below the cutoff start RP, ECM will not turn on the injector pulses, no pulses no diesel squirty.
common problem in these high mileage Dodge Cummins that have not had the loving care of a meticulous owner who ONLY feeds it absolutely clean and NO water fuel plus runs the best filtration and water separator.
best choice to take it:
1. several specialized disel pickup shops in SD that do R Cummins.
2. last resort Dodge dealer shop, have them ONLY measure the cold crank start RP and if they get it started, the cylinder contribution test.
DO NOT LET THE DEALER DO ANY REPAIRS ON THE ENGINE. READ THE HORROR STORIES ON HERE.
Post results here of tests.
You're at the mileage of worn out tit nipple leaker injector nozzles, hard starts and a quick engine killer
and of leaking injector return valves, hard starts and poor performance.
Crank sensor wiring is often damaged by a broken flying fan belt. can't easily be seen. same as smashing the new sensor, no worky.
