Not your 12 valve diesel
By glilley on


2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 SLT 4dr Extended Cab LB


The 24 valve diesel is underpowered and prone to very costly repairs due to the fuel pump problems. I have had to replace 5 lift pumps and two injector pumps. At both times Dodge stated that this was fixed. Only after I did some aftermarket add ons did the dead pump syndrone stop. The truck needs several improvements to be reliable. Lift pump repacement, bigger fuel lines, etc. And why is it so loud with so little power?

Best Features

The truck with several aftermarket add ons can be an enjoyable truck, like power chip, boost pump, intake, exhaust, injectors etc. All this at a price.

Worst Features

Go back to the 12 valve design. It was easy to work on and cheap to keep. What is with all the noise with no power? Weak brakes,electronic problems, and fuel pump nightmares
