Use your Smarty to pull the code(s) that you might have. Then post them and we will assist you every way we can!

My list shows P0253 is Injection Pump Fuel Metering Control A Low. That sounds like a fuel supply problem to me. Sounds like you are on the right track.

Now that I had a shot of digging in other boooks I can't seem to find a diagnostic for the P0253 for CR engines... I tried guys...

As for the VP44 fuel its a internal VP 44 problem which typically cause by lack of fuel pressure which in turn causes wear to occur to internal parts.

Kind of like say a engine will run on low oil pressure but how long till the bearings are wiped out same thing applies to Bosch VP44 Injection Pump...

Did you go with the airdog and do you like it? And why? I am looking for a new supply pump and could use the education. Thanks

AirDog is a smaller pump over FASS... AirDog tucks right up behind a transfer case neatly and the skid plate protects it from flying debris or offroad debris like tree limbs and rocks. FASS is difficult to find a safe mounting location because of it large size.

Bought a Raptor- should be here Tuesday. Hope I like it. Also bought that "overflow valve" on the back of the p7100, paid $95 for it. Found elsewhere alot cheaper or told by some to just stretch the spring and reuse it. Thats what they mean by education costs.

Do you know symptoms of overflow valve gone bad? I am curious if maybe that is a big part of my problem.

Stretching the spring is a temporary fix. Did you get the valve from Cummins? Some of the symptoms of a bad overflow valve are:
  • Low rpm miss/instability
  • White smoke
  • Hard starting
  • Low power

Here is a TSB about the overflow valve: http://dodgeram.info/tsb/1996/14-07-96.htm
