Hope it really is nothing. The Pat Blue is a great color, I'm just a bigger fan of black, and yeah, we love our trucks as much as you do

Hi,
A diagnostic code should indicate what area is causing the problem. A bad lift pump will cause you lose power, especially going up hill. It will also cause difficulty in starting vehicle.
I had a malfunction light come on with my 2001-5 speed MT-turbo diesel-3500 awhile back, but I also lost my accelerator at the same time. The truck continued to run great, but no footfeed. I shut the engine off for about 5 mins and then restarted. It worked normal afterwards.
I took it to a Dodge diesel tech and the computer memory said it was the throttle positioning sensor causing the problem. The tech troubleshot the sensor ( electrical wiring ) and could not detect a problem. He advised to continue operating the vehicle until there is a consistent issue and then maybe have the throttle positioning sensor replaced or atleast find out if it is an electrical problem. The sensor can cost up to $500.00. The engine malfuction light was reset and I have had no problems since. The tech did mention that if it was an electrical problem, it could also orginate in the computer.
I was only charged $86.00 . He didn't want to replace the throttle positioning sensor when in doubt of the problem.
My vehicle is operating great.

I would try to clear the codes if the mechanics did not already do so. You can do this several ways, with an aftermarket programmer (Superchips, etc), a shop with a scan tool can do it, you could buy a scan tool at most any automotive store and do it, or i believe that you can unhook both batteries, touch the positive and negative cables together and turn the key to the start position, this should clear all memory of the dtc. But having gone though this with my truck it will probably involve a new injector pump and lift pump (which is likely what took the injector pump out. I went with the FASS 150/150 lift pump and should never have any problems again.

P0216 (Injection Timing Control Circuit Malfunction) Code
this is something that i read on another site, i have had no experience with diesels
some different reasons for this code are
could be the lift pump, the injection pump, or air getting in the fuel lines

a lot of diesel owners are adding a fuel pressure gauge

I had an 02 and I had added all the gauges so I could monitor fuel pressure and my injection pump went bad at 49k, still under the 100k cummins warranty. It didn't cost me anything but had it been out of pocket, it would have been around $2k. If you are paying for it yourself, do a google search on hot rod vp injection pump. These are the OEM pumps that have been modified and will not fail. The P0216 code is saying that the electronics on the pump have failed. You will also need to replace the lift pump and I would recomend a relocation kit that will move the pump back to in front of the tank where it should be. These lift pumps are pusher pumps and are not made to be sucker pumps from where they are located from the factory. Once you move the lift pump and install a "better" injection pump, you will not likely have any other problems. Its a great truck and a great motor, so don't get discouraged.
