    I have a 08 5500 and the MAP sensor went out in November. Dodge din't have the part. I was told it would be Jan before it arrived. I am now told it will be the middle of April. What is up with Dodge that you can't get parts? What problems could this create with with the engine?

    I think dodge is having a real problem with the 6.7. They have a emission systems prolem. They made ultralow emission and they are getting cloged up!! They could be on back order or making a better one. I was told to run with gakbrake on all the time. Also don't idle truck for more then 10 min. They said that in spring they sould have a pcm/ecm update and should fix the prolems

    Go to Cummins and get the MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) sensor. Don't EVER go to a Dodge dealership to get a Cummins part.

    A. It's cheaper, and...

    B. It's guaranteed to be a genuine Cummins replacement part. (Guess where Dodge goes to get all of their Cummins stuff?)

    The problem is that the truck only has 4000 miles and they won't warranty it if I do it.

    Call your local Cummins dealer to see if they have it then cause a stink at the dealer if they wont go get one for you.
