I have a 2006, 2500, 4x4 with the cummins and the automatic.

Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006, 2500, 4x4 with the cummins and the automatic. It has a vibration under load, which almost dissapears when you let out of the throttle. It started at higher speeds like 70 mph and I thought it was a tire balance problem but has since worked it's way down to now as soon as it shifts into 2 gear it begins and gets worse as speed increases.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

Original trans, approximately 110,000 miles on it, no leaking and fluid level is correct, fluid is not burnt, cherry red.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I replaced the rear U-joints as the rear most was bad, thought that was it, also replaced the pinion seal as it had started leaking, the vibration was still there, pulled the front drive shaft to eliminate front U-joints, no change. The serpentine belt tensioner appeared to be vibrating with the truck on jack stands so I replaced it, no change. Frustrating!

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

No, I think that's it.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. I had a 2010 Ram Cummins in the shop a few weeks ago with a similar problem. It ended up being loose transfer case to transmission bolts, so make sure those are good and night. The other things I see causing this is the rear driveshaft center support bearing (if equipped) or the U joints on the rear drive shaft, so check those also. Hopefully this information will help you.

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.
