2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins 2wd
« on: January 11, 2015, 08:39:38 pm »
so  I made the fatal mistake at work again this week... I started browsing craigslist.

Found a 2005 cummins 2wd truck. the ad said:

I have a white 2005 5.9l Dodge Cummins 2500 truck, 156,000 miles. It is broke down, I have heard everything from a dropped rod to a bad oil pump to a backed out flywheel bolt. the engine starts and runs, but has a knocking noise coming from the bottom of the engine where the engine and torque converter meet. I have had the torque converter checked, flywheel checked, engine checked, and the best anyone can say to me is to get a new engine which i am not financially willing to do. The truck itself is in good condition, infinity sound system, spray in bed liner, air shocks under the bed for heavy towing, leather electric heated seats, heated mirrors, 6 disc cd changer, hide away goose neck hitch. I am tired of dealing with it. Once I get the title for it I will sign it and mail it to you.

 I don't know whats wrong with it, you will have to pick it up with a flatbed trailer. Cash only, once up and running the blue book value is close to $20k. If you have good knowledge of these trucks then this is the truck for you. Come get it!!!


-

So I looked at it Thursday and decided to give it a go. Finally got it home tonight. It knocked real bad and would not even get itself up on the trailer (had to winch it), got it to my house and drove it into the driveway and the knock went away. That seems to be suggesting a fuel related issue of some kind.

gonna see if I just got a heck of a deal, or if I got screwed. Hopefully its a deal and I have a new tow rig.

pretty sure my neighbors would complain I am running a used car lot, except none of them ever seem to stay gone lol  :laughing7:

I do want to try and save a little to put down on a few acres outside of town, but that will take a while.  If other members lived closer to DFW I would not have to worry as much about that  :evil6:

I believe his exact words were "Scary" lol

Ernest has been giving some advice, so I am starting with basics, check fuel and send off a oil sample for testing.

I am going to remove the inspection plate and check the flex plate as well.

after that it's down to leak down test/ compression test, then remove injectors for testing and injector pump for testing.

it's parked outside right now so just have to take it slow.
