The 5.9L with CR (common rail) was introduced in 2003. The use of a high-pressure fuel system is diagnosed by system to make an accurate assessment on what failed. The low pressure, and return system are checked and procedures are explained. The Cummins 6.7L is also instructed along with additional emission controls and electronics. 


Note: There has been considerable changes on the 2014 and later RAM trucks. The Cummins 6.7L has an updated turbocharger and injectors do not use IQA codes. Strategies and differences will be discussed. Aftertreatment issues with SCR are vital to understand and will be instructed.
