The latest ram diesel lawsuit claims the company is negligent. This class action suit was filed after a Seattle law firm found that FCA US had intentionally misrepresented emission levels of the truck’s 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel engine. The CP4 pump is a part of the fuel injection system, and it uses fuel to lubricate the interior cam and rollers. As the CP4 pump wears out, metal shavings begin to disperse throughout the fuel injection system.

The proposed class-action lawsuit alleges that the diesel after-treatment system in the Dodge RAM has a “flash” defect that causes soot to build up.

The flashing of the power control module allows the soot to build up, lowering the truck’s fuel economy. The automaker and Cummins have denied the allegations, saying previous recalls should have addressed the fuel economy issues. The Environmental Protection Agency has already ordered the automaker to fix the problem.

According to the class-action lawsuit, the Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks were equipped with a 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel engine. However, Fiat Chrysler told dealers that no remedy for the condition was available. The Safety Recall Notice did not state when truck owners will have their vehicles repaired. This is why a class-action lawsuit is important. If your truck has a problem with the engine, you should contact the manufacturer immediately.

The federal regulators are looking into complaints regarding fuel pumps in Dodge RAM Heavy-Duty diesel pickups.

The faulty pumps can cause the vehicle to stall and cost thousands of dollars in repair bills. Although no deaths have been reported, one owner reported a similar experience to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. He was left with his newborn in a freezing truck after the engine failed and he pulled out of his garage. Then he saw flames coming out of the fuel injection pump area.

In the United States, a proposed class-action lawsuit filed by Dodge Ram owners alleges that the company is negligent for installing the defective diesel engines in the truck’s engine. The manufacturer, Fiat Chrysler, and Cummins, the EPA, and the government have a duty to warn owners about the effects of faulty diesel trucks. The automaker has responded to the lawsuits by notifying car owners of their claims. The settlement was approved by a California federal court last week.

The lawsuit claims that the CP4 fuel pump in Dodge RAM diesel trucks with Cummins 6.7-liter engines is defective.

This “imminent safety risk” could prevent the truck from running, and the lawsuit seeks damages for the drivers who purchased the defective vehicles. The plaintiffs are eligible to receive compensation for their losses and damages. The case is being investigated by the Federal Trade Commission. The court will also consider the merits of the case.

The plaintiff’s lawsuit has filed a class-action suit in the US District Court for the District of New Jersey, alleging that the CP4 fuel injection pump in Ram trucks caused a defect that caused soot to build up. The CP4 pump has been installed in the truck’s engine for years, but the lawsuit claims that this defect can cause sudden engine shutoffs. The automaker says that the problem is so serious that the automaker failed to warn consumers about the defect.

The CP4 pump in a 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine is faulty.

This is a potentially life-threatening defect, preventing the truck from starting or running. A faulty CP4 fuel pump can lead to a vehicle’s engine shutting off unexpectedly while driving. The automaker is now facing a class-action lawsuit over this problem. It has not been able to make a decision yet, but the class-action case may help owners recover financial damages.

The Ram Diesel lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. The class action claims that the diesel after-treatment system has a “flash” defect, which causes soot to accumulate in the engine. The flashing of power control modules causes fuel economy to decrease. While the lawsuit claims that FCA should have taken steps to remedy this problem, the company has defended its products. The complaint is filed in the district court in Michigan.

    I own a 2011 Ram 3500 with the 6.7 Cummins engine. I have not been notified of, or offered any information on this lawsuit. Is there a way I can receive this information from Chrysler or the Law Firm handling this case?

    I am an owner of a 2018 Ram 3500. While driving just past Gallup New Mexico my truck sputtered and lost power going up Hwy 40. Spent two nights in front of dealership waiting for service. The service advisor said I should get rid of the truck because he has seen so many exhaust system failures on Ram diesels with exhaust particle filters. There was only 21828 miles on the truck at the time. They changed two fuel filters and offered no guarantees that I would make it back to California. Wow!!

    We have a 2022 Dodge Ram 3500 Big horn. We bought it specifically for hot shotting. We bought in April 2022 with 10 miles on it. In November the truck lost the power to pull loads at all and will not go above 55mph. We were told it’s the Def system (diesel emissions). $5000-$8000 to fix it and is not a long term fix. We were told we have to do the same thing after about 60,000. The truck now has a 100,000 i.e hot shot hauler. It’s a brand new diesel so we believed this truck would be good for 300,000 to 400,000 miles with no major repairs for at least a year. We have started losing everything because the hot shot business is done since we do not have a truck to pull loads. I will never buy another Dodge! Paid $72,000 less than 9 months ago.
