1995 5.9 turbo diesel auto/ rpm fluctuations???
 
Hello,

I just bought a 95 Ram 2500 with the 5.9 turbo diesel and 229,000 miles. Just lately the rpm gauge began to constantly flutter up or down when cruising around 45-55 and at around 75 mph. It will jump up or down 500 rpms and feel like it cant decide what gear to be in. I cant tell if this is an engine, tranny or computer probem... Can anyone help me?

Thanks

~Ben

its an ALT [alternator] problem or the wiring / the diesel takes the TACH signal from the ALT
