Technical Service Bulletin: 1998 5.9 L Cummins Fuel Filter Requirements
Model(s): 1998 Dodge (BR/BE) Ram Truck
Bulletin No.: 14-02-98
Date: March 27, 1998
With the introduction of the Cummins 24 valve electronically injected engine, a new VP44 injection pump was also introduced. The VP44 injection pump requires finer fuel filtration due to tighter tolerances within the pump.
Whenever a fuel filter is replaced, make sure the replacement filter is P/N 04883963AB.
The new style filter (P/N 04883963AB) can be used on 1997-98 12 valve engine applications.
