a couple of weeks ago my dodge ram diesel all of a sudden just lost power. i couldnt get it to go above 60 mph..stepping on the accelerator only made it lose more power...had it towed to dealer where they said the injectors had gone bad..130,000 miles..bill would have been over 5k..injector price was $895.00 each ..dealers price...to make a long story short the bully dog triple power pup was messing with truck computer..mechanic unplugged it from truck and now problem is no more..ive had the bullydog in the truck for years and never had a problem with it...its a great product..more power..better fuel mileage..dont know why this happened but i do have a email into bully dog..if i hear anything i will post...thanks....

Diesel fuel is notorious for water and other junk in the fuel. I'd say the fuel system needed cleaning, the Bullydog is probably not to blaim. Diesel injectors run at extremely high pressures and wear out quicker than gas injectors do. The B.Dog may have went bad, only one way to tell. Plug it back up and see what happens. I'm leaning towards dirty fuel system and/or bad injector(s). That's just my guess from watching automotive shows like Trucks and Gearz.. LOL..Take it for what it is worth. I'm interested to see what some of the other guys with firsthand knowledge have to say.
