Where is the ECUs...

Where is the ECUs located on a 1998 Dodge 2500 diesel and is it difficult to replace? Approx. how much does a rebuilt ecu cost for this Dodge?

Mechanic's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Dodge Mechanic's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).

Is it difficult, where is it located on the engine and what does a rebuilt ecu cost?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the engine? And when was it last serviced?

The engine has 186,700 original miles on it and is a Cummins 509 I th ink.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your B2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I would like to fix it myself and it has not been serviced for this problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, everything I have sent you so far is pretty straight forward, thank you

What Customers are Saying:

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.
