Wow, unreal!
And on the upside, if you do want to upgrade, that truck will be of significant value for years to come still.

What I want to know is where on earth you find a 13 year old truck with 18,500miles on it (4000miles into your trip)?
You find Grandpa's garage queen last month that Grandma hasn't driven in 12 years?

steelhead1 DAP is trying to rebuild their retailer reputation with the diesel pickup crowd after selling low quality non spec Bosch low pressure injectors build for farm tractors as real 5.9 Bosch high pressure quality injectors.meeting Cummins required specs of their high HP pickup engines HPCR fuel system

I will definately be a returning customer.

EEnvy Sounds like #5 is your problem. Also make sure to check the radiator fluid. If it’s low the white smoke during start up could also be radiator fluid leaking into the cylinder.

steelhead1 CP,
have fun on the rest of the vaction and trip home with the young family.
Always scarry upsetting broke down on the road thousands of miles from home especially with young family.
Don't trust the rest of the injectors on long trips, at least pull and have tested. Exergy or BBI are the ONLY ones I let touch Bosch HPCR injectors, complete full range test across pressure Min to Max, flow and they can even heat the injectors to reproduce engine heat effects. Any moron can test the old mechanical spring pop injectors.

Morons that screwed these fine Bosch HPCR injectors were the cheap bean counters at Chrysler Corp and GMC who went cheap on fuel filters. Bosch engineering told them, commercial HD 2 micron dirt filter and mandatory water separators meeting Bosch specs. But no, the cost cutting bean counters in the auto industry screwed you the diesel pickup buyer. Reason Bosch NEVER warrantied these to the diesel pickup companies. Chrysler always covered their own warranty injectors with their krapola wrapped in tacos and spread black bean grease injectors in the Saltillo Mx. plant. Dodge is incapable of rebuilding any precision parts. They can't even build a HD pickup with a decent front end on and safe steering.
Dodge Cummins Ram, break out another $10,000 after a long walk and tow.

GAmes Good news. Good troubleshooting.

CumminsPowered Thats great news.
My understanding, the light will clear itself after at least 5 starts and driving runs, if there is no active code. Its my experience when I have left off sensor plugs.

So how did you know that that particular injector was defective? I must have missed that in the thread. I thought you were originally replacing all 6.[/QUOTE]

My buddy has a diesel shop back home in Pa, he told me pull the valve cover and take one lead off of each injector one by one and start it up and see if the motor runs worse or stays the same. I started with number 1 injector and took the lead off. Started the truck back up and touched the wire to the injector on and off and the motor ran noticeably worse. Ran worse until I got to cylinder #5. There was no change on number 5 so we figured that had to be the problem cylinder.
