4x4 5.9l cummins
Dodge Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 2 years ago
HI, This is usually caused by a faulty VSS(vehicle speed sensor, located at the rear of the transfer case. In addition to its signal used for both the speedometer and odometer, but also for transmission shifting parameters. You need to check for broken wiring going to it and repair as needed. If ok, replace the sensor Please remember to rate service using the rating page so that I may receive credit. Thanks

Dodge Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 2 years ago
HI,
Yes. The VSS signal is used for speedometer/odometer, tachometer and shift parameters

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
