Cancelled my order when I realized the 2019's used the CP4.2 pump. I will move forward as soon as a CP3 kit is available or Ram changes to something different.

daemon I'm just going to slap some magnets on the CP4 and keep all those metal shavings in the pump. Problem solved.

Man I'm glad you had that qualifier at the bottom. I was born pretty stupid and near eight decades later still wonder when "smart" starts. It took clean to the DEF lubricant for my old brain to engage.

Friend has reported to me through another forum that he is aware of two CP4 failures in the 2019's. No substantiation on my part and I did not read the earlier posts on the topic here. A few have gone on the Ecodiesels but very few. One Ecodiesel just crossed the 600,000 mile mark (hard to believe but a transporter) with no pump issues.

I bought a 2019 and am aware of the possibility of having a survivor kit for the issue. If available the day after warranty runs out, I will have one.

Nothing is going to be fixed by Chrysler, I guarantee it. This pump has been in use since 2010, at the least, maybe earlier and it continues to fail in the same way it has from day one.

o be clear, this kit will not prevent the CP4 injection pump from failing, but what it will do is prevent failure of the rest of the fuel system in the event that it does fail. When the CP4 fails, metal particles from the fractured pump are forced to be sent throughout all secondary parts of the fuel system to include the fuel rails and injectors, most notably the injectors.
Fords, Chevy, Rams, VW's... all have this pump and all fail in the same nasty manor, its just a matter of time.

I do like their solution...

What the Disaster Prevention Kit does is reroute the direction of fuel that is responsible for lubricating the rotating assembly back through the factory fuel filters. Because of this, in the event the pump does fail, the contaminated fuel will be forced through both filters, which will capture these particles, inevitably saving your injectors.
I would still advocate using 2 stroke oil (or fav lube of choice) in the fuel. I used it on a TDI I had years back that had this pump and monitored the ash level in the DPF, no ill effects in the 50k miles I ran it with 2SO before selling it.

Looks like 13-18 was relatively safe with only some early SCR issues and vibration issues...

Of course, now we got the cp4 on the 19. We are always just trading problem A for problem B if you think about it. [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/images/smilies/smilies-2008/confused013.gif[/IMG]
My 2nd 24v gen been pretty reliable. Has 250k on it. Converter got burnt up (my fault) around 160k. Had whole trans built, been towing about 26k lbs combined for the past 90k miles with no issues. Burning thru brakes was my biggest expense towing that weight. New truck has exhaust brake so haven’t had to do brakes yet. Clutch did fail on new truck at 24 k miles but a dual disk and single mass flywheel fixed that. So far no other issues, was disappointed in the new trucks performance before the tuner was installed.

akhr Just came across this on tdr. Glad have a 4th gen g56. Hopefully the new rams won’t have the same issues but going to wait on getting into one. Also bummed out they ditched the g56 but wasn’t surprised. It was only a matter of time.
