Anyone know how long is the warranty on my 06? I got it in August with 23,000 miles on it. It now has 32,000 miles, originally registered in June/2006. No warranty book with it as it was a Chrysler Repo. I have 2 very loud injectors that get very quiet with 2 stroke oil in the fuel, very loud without it. Totally stock truck. Thanks in advance.

So a 2006 with 116000 on it should technically still be under engine warranty from dodge ? If it has never been modified ?

3yr- 36k, after the 36 there is a5yr 100k on the motor. if you can find it and read it carefully the 100k starts after the 36k, but they will try to say different
I just read the warranty info and see what you mean..although im sure the dealer will interpret it another way.

Does this mean my 03 ram with a 7/100,000 cummins warranty is good untill 2013 or 136,000 miles? I have just assumed the 7/100,000 cummins warranty ans the 7/70,000 powertrain warranty started from day one....

Has any one confirmed this at the dealer?

Anyone else have experience with this?

I read on another diesel site someone who tried to argue this with the dealer and the dealer insisted the 7/70 they had started the say they bought the truck. Therefore they would not warranty the problem as the truck was past 70,000 miles.

Warranty after 100k

I think the 100k engine warranty is through cummins, which is gonna start from day one or mile one.
But if someone finds out different please please let us
know. This could be a big help to alot of people.

The 5yr/100k starts after the 3yr/36k runs out. It says so in black and white in the dodge warranty book.

Quick question too. My truck has a little rough idle, when you slightly hold the revs about 300-500rpm higher than where it idles it smoothes out. I was thinking about bringing it to the Dodge Dealership.

2 questions.

1. Do you think it could be an injector? One of my so called diesel fanatic friend said he thought so.
2. Do you think I can take it in too Dodge with the Banks on it? If i have to pull the banks out, what do i do with the egt probe and all the loomed wire I spent all that time cleaning up the whole thing to make it look stock?

The 5/100k engine warranty is a dodge warranty. Dodge buys the engines from cummins with no warranty from cummins.

1. Check this thread for your rough idle. http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/3rd-gen-powertrain/38315-rough-idle-hard-start-solved.html it helped my rough idle. It could be a injector though.

2. Unless you know the service guy at the dealer take off the chip before you take it in.

Just to clear up all your confusion...

The 5 yr/100k starts counting down from mile 1 and takes over after 3/36. So after 3/36 you can get your engine worked on at dodge for a small deducatable after 3/36 coverage stops and before 5/100k. At 100,000 miles, you are all out of warranty. No more, over, bye-bye. 100k is where it stops. NOT 5years or/100k after the 3/36. Don't believe me?? Go to your dodge dealership with a 6 year old truck with 119,000 miles and a broken engine, you will get nothing done for free.

Not sure I follow . . . the warranty booklet pdf posted earlier for the 2006 model year Ram says under "Cummins Diesel Engine Limited Warranty":

"C. When It Begins
The Cummins Diesel Engine Warranty begins at the
end of the Basic Limited Warranty, on either of the
following dates, whichever is earlier:
• the date your truck has been in service for
more than 36 months; or
• the date you've put more than 36, 000 miles on
the odometer."

Call your local dodge dealer and ask them. After 100k miles or 5 years after you buy the truck, it is all over. Don't just take my word for it. :thumbsup:

I guess the key words are "up to" in the warranty language:

"A. Who Is Covered?
You are covered by the Cummins Diesel Engine
Limited Warranty for up to 5 years or 100,000 miles
on the odometer, whichever comes first."

So a low mileage driver keeping under 100k would have five years beyond the first 3yr/36k, but anyone cracking the 100k barrier is finished? In effect making the Cummins warranty a 5yr/64k warranty, or "up to" 100k on the odo. I see what you're saying.

You wouldn't have five years beyond the 3/36. It all expires five years after buying the truck or after 100,000 miles. Like I said, a dodge dealer can explain it better than me...
