Default How long did your first Bosch VP 44 last?

About 2 years ago I replaced my lift pump with an airdog 100, this would be about 76,000 miles on the truck. I was trying to do preventative maintenance and get more life out of my Bosch vp44. The airdog runs a steady 18 psi so i'm ok with fuel. Then the dead pedal started up about 2 months ago. So i replaced it with timbos apps, first test drive did good the first 10 miles then dead throttle started in.
So i check the dash for codes , turn the key on and off 3 times for display of trouble codes. 1693 came off and also got 0216. So i bought lucas treatment and served it up with a double dose. Right now I am at 98,000 miles, and trying to go as far as i can.
Any advice?
Thanks much, Noel.

I had 220,000 miles on my Bosch VP 44 went it died and I didn't have any codes when it died.
Sometimes the low sulfer diesel makes my truck a little jerky on the throttle so I use the Walmart 2 cycle oil or FPPF in the tank it helps.
Cummins Rep. here in Houston said the Lucas fuel injector cleaner is a little hard on the rubber diapham on the Bosch VP44.

1693 - Companion code
0216 - Fuel Injection pump timing failure (high fuel supply restriction, low fuel pressure or possible wrong or incorrectly installed pump keyway)

Noel, the first thing I would try is clearing the codes and see if any come back. If you use an OBD II reader you could also look at the freeze frame from when the P0216 code was set and then you will know how long it was there. Try going to a local auto parts store and see if they have a scanner to borrow or if they will do it for you. Sometimes there are codes that the key trick just don't seem to want to show. T22,000 miles is not very many miles for the pump. Now to figure out the dead pedal issue.......

I am still on the original VP44 injection pump in my truck. I replaced the original LP at 84k with an AirTex pump. I change the fuel filter every other oil change, or when the fuel pressure goes below 13 psi for more that 10 minutes at once. I keep a fuel filter in the truck ready to change it out.

I also started running 2 stroke oil at 1 oz to 1 gallon, and it has helped the noises in the engine.

Currently, I have 99,999 miles on my truck.

I am going to add the two stroke oil.
Put the oil on my walmart list. I havent driven the dodge in about 10 days. The ac unit is out so i've been driving the ford. Catch 22, the ford gets about 9 miles a gallon pulling the work trailer, dodge gets about 13/14 mpg, dodge pulls it better and is also funner to drive.

About two weeks ago i reset the apps, unhooked the batterys, cleaned terminals while they were off, and hooked it back up, then turned key on and slowly pressed acc pedal.

No dead pedal until yesterday,
Surfing around today i found this statement;

This procedure has shown to help the Dodge Cummins 24 valve ISB engines. It is basically teaching the fly by wire accelerator on these trucks to reread the position of the pedal and it's limits. Most complaints this will help with is poor acceleration, improper shifting, bucking in 5 and 6 speeds. Has been known to increase fuel mileage in some instances.

1. Set parking brake
2. Disconnect negative battery cables on both batteries
3. Turn ignition key to run(to drain any remaining capacitors)
4. Let truck sit for 30 minutes( this is the recommended minimum)
5. Return ignition to OFF position
6. Reconnect both batteries and secure, not a timed event
7. Turn key to run position(not start) and depress accelerator pedal slowly all the way to the floor
8. Allow pedal to return to top position slowly
9. Turn ignition switch OFF
10.Release parking brake


I will try this tomorrow.
Just a little different from Tom and MoparMan writeup. I'm trying all the little steps. LOL
Thanks for the writeups!

That is one procedure to reset the APPS. There are a few variations, but they all get you to the same place.
