Those who are experienced drivers of Dodge Ram Trucks (especially those equipped with the Cummins diesel) are well aware of the fact that the stock steering is something that tends to feel completely imprecise and sloppy. That feeling is something that gets worse as your truck ages or if you are running oversized tires on your outfit.
From performance upgrades you’ve added after-market wheels and bigger than stock tires, combined with driving a modified diesel is quite hard on its steering system including the steering box, steering linkage, ball joints and wheel bearings.

Often times “too soon” steering components will deteriorate and will make your whole vehicle feel worn-out, wobbly and generally unsafe.

Late model Dodge Diesel trucks utilize a Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT). A VGT turbo is designed to have the turbine housing expand internally as the engine RPM increases. This allows for the turbo to spool quicker, easier and sooner in the RPM range. As RPM increases, the actuator on the exterior of the turbo expands the size of the turbine housing by opening vanes allowing for cooler temperatures. When the vanes open, this increases the internal dimensions of the exhaust housing and reduces drive pressure and heat.
If the engine is at an off idle rpm, the VGT allows the user a substantial benefit in stopping power. At higher RPM’s the VGT can close at the vanes in the exhaust housing at the appropriate time which creates a significant amount of back pressure in the cylinder. This back pressure functions as an exhaust brake and slows down the engine and the truck.
Many users fail to understand that the daily use of the exhaust brake feature on the Dodge diesel is vitally important to the longevity of the turbo. The experts at Source Automotive understand this and highly recommend to each customer with a VGT to use the exhaust brake feature every time the truck is driven. They recommend this because diesel fuel generates soot. Soot is sticky. Over time, the soot buildup within the VGT can cause failures which damage the function of the VGT. Daily use of the exhaust brake will help the VGT avoid soot building up on the moving parts.
Often when the VGT fails, the vanes will stick in one position. This creates a tremendous problem for the driver. Imagine trying to drive your truck while it is stuck in first gear!
While some have attempted to clean the VGT to regain its function, cleaning has not shown itself to be a long term solution. If this happens, the best solution is to replace the turbo.
Fortunately, Source Automotive has teamed up with High Tech Turbo to offer a line of new, upgraded and remanufactured VGT turbos. If you find yourself with an non functioning turbo on your Dodge Diesel, give the experts at Source Automotive a call and they can help you choose which option is best for you.
When it comes to improving the performance of your Dodge Cummins, use caution and get expert advice! Many aftermarket components can do severe harm to your engine or drive train if they are installed improperly or without consideration to the strength of the remainder of the truck.
For instance, when selecting an aftermarket programmer for your Dodge, it is important to understand that the programmer may have the capability of creating more power than your transmission is able to handle. In some cases, the owners of new programmers are excited about the new found bulk of power that they have found. Shortly after the upload of the race program to the ECM, the transmission fails. Source Automotive has the experience to avoid these costly mistakes. Over the years, they have helped many who have made these costly errors.
In one incident, a programmer was added on top of another program. This is called “stacking.” This caused the timing to be advanced to a dangerous level and after one pass at the drag strip, the engine had melted pistons!
Do not let this happen to your expensive Cummins engine! Ask the Experts at Source Automotive which program is right for your needs and what program parameters should be avoided. Learn from their advice! They can help you avoid costly errors!
