    I have a 2006 Cummins with maybe 10k miles on the rebuild now. It seems to burn a lot of oil. If I’m sitting in traffic for 10-15 mins without moving and rev the engine a big cloud of grey smoke comes out of the tail pipe. I really don’t know what could be causing this problem because the...

    I have a 2000 Cummins that I can’t get power to the power windows or the blower motor. My electric locks do work. I’ve check the fuses and they are good. I took a test light to the fuse block and I’m not getting any power there. Any info would be great.

    II recently bought a 2006 Cummins with a 6 speed. I have noticed that every time I start the truck there is a really unsettling sound. I sort of sounds like the rotating arm ally is hitting some sort of debris and it’s scraping around the bottom end. The weird part is that it is very irregular...

    Recently did an overhaul on my 5.9 Cummins. Everything went smoothly and had no problems assembling. Before dropping the pistons in I checked each ring gap and everything was perfectly in spec. Only put brand new parts into the engine... nothing was reused. Truck started right up on its first...

    Hey guys, I got a 2006 5.9 with about 6400000km (398000 miles), it has been rebuilt thanks to a shop not fixing a faulty injector we told them about and then left the motor trashed. But that's not what I'm here to talk about, the truck is farley stock, it always had a cold air intake and high...

    Hey everyone! I live in Colorado and was thinking about doing a muffler delete on my 06 5.9. Could not find any emissions laws to see if I would fail emissions because of visual inspection. Thanks!
