New guy here in the market for a Cummins!
Hey guys, my name is Dave and im currently in the market for a diesel truck. This is a great forum u guys got here and there's a lot of good info. Ive been reading thru all three sections of the diesel engines (ie ctd, psd, dmax). Right now im really leaning towards buying a dodge 2500 diesel either a 12 valve or a 24 valve. Now the question i have for u is which valvetrain is better of the two? Also ive found a lot of the 5speed equipped ones and i was wondering if this is a good route to go. Ive heard that dodge early auto trannies were pretty weak. Also what other common problems have u encoutered with the 98-02 models motors? I work on Cummins powered generators and they are the most reliable engines ive worked with but now id like to get into a truck that i can have some fun with and tow my Mustang that ive been building. Well any help is appreciated and i cant wait to start burning some oil!
