    NewWell they are saying the fuel pump needs to be replaced as well as the fuel module. Which is fine but then they want to drop the tanks and clean out the tanks and make sure no metal is in the tanks and making it through to the new pump and fuel module. If they drop the tanks it’s a $9200 hit. I’m wondering if I can get away with just replacing the fuel pump and the fuel module. Keep in mind the check engine light came on and westopped the truck within 100 miles at the weyer cavelocation in VA. Excel truck group. What to do.....

    Its just horrible that you get a check engine light code, you run a bit and the damage is already done. Definitely will be changing out Fuel pumps often from now on. your better off.

    What did the fix cost you if you dont mind me asking. I got them down to $7800, flushing the whole fuel system, cleaning out the tanks, replacing the fuel pump, fuel module, etc. What hurts the most is being stuck in the mountains of VA while the repairs are being done. I should be out of here by Tuesday they said.

    On a Cummins ISX 15 fuel pump can take out the engine. Now that's what I call bad.

    The great thing about Detroit DD13/15, the metal has a hard time getting into the engine to destroy the truck completely. One of the main reasons i didnt go with Cummins.
