a friend of mine said he has had problems with his 2002 diesel leaking oil and adding up to 7 quarts on a trip from louisiana to wisconsin and he only has 30,000 miles on it. a friend of his was complaining too about his leaking oil too.....this was really discouraging to hear when i'm considering on trading my 1500 ram in on a 2500 cummins, anybody have any information on this????


thanks, avehulin

I haven't heard of any problems. The 2002 and 2003 cummins are completely different engines.

When we got our new cummins they all seemed to ' consume ' oil, but didn't actually leak oil on the ground

That amount of oil leaking is not normal. First question, is the 2002 still under warranty? Can you tell where the leak is coming from or the location? Give some more information, maybe we can help.

that was what my friend told me, dodge was going fix it under warrenty, he did mention they replaced the seals....i was just wondering if any readers had heard of any related problems with the cummins.....i don't want a cummins if the history is that bad. unless there is some way to prevent this from happening? i guess my question is "was this a lemon or is the cummins known for leaking" i've always heard nothing but good talk about the motor...i really want it in the 2500 too.
thanks, future diesel owner avehulin

Are you considering buying your friends truck? If you are, then I'd want to see what the dealer did to fix the leak. The Cummins is an excellent motor.

My 99 doesn't leak/burn a drop,as is the case with most,you're freind has got a problem that needs fixed but no this is a not a common problem.It's not a "leak-troit"or a 6.0 Power-stroke,which seem to come standard with oil leaks...Doug
