2001 5.9L Cummins Engine cuts out while cruising

Please Help!

My 2001 5.9L Cummins cuts out when I'm cruising (40-60mph only) and I can't seem to get a good diagnosis. It feels like the transmission is slipping but I had the transmission checked and it's fine. The engine has little hiccups where the rpms slightly jump up rapidly yet the truck doesn't pull forward. This will happen for a fraction of a second many times in a row, then go back to normal for 20 minutes or so. If I accelerate at all the symptoms immediately go away.

Any ideas?

Turn the keyswitch On-Off-On-Off-On then look at your odometer for P-codes.

could be fuel related if you are losing power may not be getting any fuel along with the cutting in and out also check the throttle senser if thats of course you don't have a cable. good luck by the way is your truck smoking of any color

Sounds like APPS but unfortunetly could be fuel pump related. Obviously injection pump, but if it is gone I would question the strength of your lift pump.

Hi, I had a similar problem and narrowed it down to the MAP sensor. Truck would lose power and surge at highway speeds and through intermittant engine light. I pulled the sensor out, cleaned it with sensor cleaner and it has worked flawless since. If the MAP sensor isn't detecting any boost pressure it tells the computer to cut fuel supply. If your not sure, you will find the sensor right near you fuel filter on the side of the engine. I hope this helps!

I am having similar problems. I have taken to the "go to" guys concerning fuel delivery in Dallas.
They first re-flashed my computer and cleaned the grounds twice which only seemed to help temporarily.
Then They removed a supplemental fuel pump. That didn't work.
Then they dropped my tank and replaced the in tank pump. That didn't work.
Then they thought it was my gas pedal position sensor so they replaced that.
That didn't work.
They for some reason could never duplicate the problem and after spending almost 2k in repairs they told me to bring it back when it was doing it all the time or threw a code.
They also said these symptoms were not typical of a injector pump problem.
I am as frustrated as hell and know you must be too. Hope you get it figured out.

Do you think this is the torque converter lock/unlock issue? If so, this has been hashed over many times and it should be pretty easy to fix. In fact, check out the stickied post at the top of the forum and there is a bunch of info. to read through.
