    2015 Ram 1500 ecodiesel engine code P026C

    Just got a service engine light on my Eco. I put a code reader on it and its throwing code P026C. I found some sketchy info on the net that says Fuel Injection Quantity- quantity lower than expected. Last oil change at 11500 I changed the fuel filter I know have 19000 on it. Has anyone ran into this? Is this possibly a fuel filter change or injector issues? Thanks in advanced.

    You can attempt to clear the code and see if it comes back. If so, then there are (obviously) other complications. Possibly bad fuel? Since it says "quantity", not quality, it could be a sensor for the EGR, TPS, or the injection pump itself.
    I think first try to clear it.

    It's a huge investment, just take it to the dealer and have them fix it correctly at zero cost to you.

    I cleared it, came back with about 15 minutes of driving.
    It may not be a big diesel, but it's a smart diesel!

    I would replace the fuel filter, it's cheap and the process of elimination that you can do yourself very easily and not get a bill over 100 dollars from a dealership and when you start your truck stand next to the fuel tank and listen for a loud whining noise, when a lift pump goes bad folks usually hear it whining first .
    BTW I read your other post about leaves in the air cleaner intake causing codes , Thanks for sharing

    Thank you hope its not that drastic. But only a little over a year with less than 20k on it so should be covered under warranty if that's the case.

    Hey guys here is a follow up so far. After a 2 week stent of my truck at the dealership, first attempt for a fix was a bust. They replaced the injector pump and a couple fuel lines. Got it back and within 100 miles the code came back, its at the dealership again, see what happens this time.
