Depends on the direction of the wind. I could do the same trip every year, one year I had a tail wind all the way home, and had an extra 1/2tank of fuel when I got home. That only happened once though.
I'd still like to see how programmers push 30% more fuel threw an injector nozzle without raising the rail pressure like they all advertize the don't,and only move timing 2-3 degrees,also you only have so long to inject on duration, but make 25-30% more power, I call BS on that. That's why most guys that run programmers don't hardly see 100k without injector failure, and hotshotters running stock, pulling hard get 200-400k on a set of sticks. This is just an observation on the diesel sites over the years, and my conclusion. :B
Sounds like you need some positive caster, those machines are good, but a test drive is better. If all you had to do is read number displays to be a good alignment guy, you could be a pro in a day. Get someone else, and tell them the problem your having, and have them put in some more caster if it feels nothings changed, not all vehicles respond to the required general settings. Some times I used to add positive to the right front when folks constantly drift to the side of the road, and complain about it. Some roads seem have too much run off angle in them , and will drift you off the road when you let go of the steering. It's kind like give the customer what he or she wants. I have over a 100k my truck, and I won't let anyone touch my alignment, it's perfect from reading my tire wear, and the way it handles, I wouldn't care what an alignment machine says.
I don't get what the pictures are trying to show me? What is that white stuff all over the place? Never seen that before? :h
My 4x2 Dmax works just fine. :B
So does my Dodge, and I enjoy the lack of servicing the extra differential,transfercase,shafts or cv's, better fuel mileage,superior tire wear ,and lower mounting position of my hitch,but to each his own.
Bottom line, you pull your heads off in a few thousand miles, and your top end is a carbon gooey mess. I've seen it before pulling a motor apart after a guy used B100 a couple months. The older engine's injectors will fire right threw the juicy carbon mess, but the newer diesels don't like it too much, cokes up everything. The money you save will be spend in new injectors, or at least cleaning them every couple months, cleaning the piston tops , and heads. Not worth it in my opinion.If you have old mechanical injectors, you can just let it ride, and probably get away with it for many many miles. I'd use maybe B20 even though Cummins says B5, but that's it.
I unlock several phones a month, mostly Iphones, but a lot of Androids too. I buy the unlocks, then sync. with Itunes, and Apple unlocks it for you. Not a hack, Apple does it for you. Jail breaking Apples, and rooting Androids are a whole different thing. I have my HTC rooted, HTC's website shows you how, they don't care anymore. This is a real setback for some folks if they leave the country with a GSM phone. I get customers that travel outside the US all the time here in FL., and they plan on getting a new sim card and number in the country they visit. Just another way of sticking to the consumer,must be some of that change we've been waiting for.
My 98.5 had a Dana 80 locked up due to a roll pin, the 5th gear backed out. KDP issues.. I couldn't keep the POS running...SOLD 109k miles
The new Ram has AAM axles . I have seen them melt the paint on the diff cover.. They run way to hot. Weak pressure plates..even at stock power. Brakes every 50k miles.. I see axles/tcase and emissions systems overhaul in that timeframe. CRI on a CTD are expensive
My PSD had 331k and was still running. I should have kept it.. AWESOME truck but slow.. even with a 6spd and 4.10s some hills would have me down to 28mph..floored running 2800rpms.. but the truck never had issues
I will get a 5th wheel in the 14-16k range loaded. My GN trailers with 26 6' bales comes in just shy of 40,000lbs with the trailerPlates in the diff. don't even slip unless you turning , or one wheel loses traction, take a long time break one of those, unless your racing on an oval track.
Its a great conbination. Cummins & Aisin. Dodge got it right with this combo. To bad their auto trans still sucks....
Are you saying the Chrysler auto trans that is behind the 6.7 Cummins in the pickups sucks?
Please explain.Living in the 80's.:R
I've notice when you use a TransGo, or an electronic shift firmer on a 4l80e, the 1-2 shift gets real firm, but the 2-3 shift stays about the same. So it's rev, clunk, then slide into 3rd. It's liveable, but not completely perfect. I even rebuilt mine with new clutches, and mic'd the plate stacks perfect, and it still shifted like that, even with the whole valve body rebuild kit, and mods.. Also , the lube circuits on the 2000 and later have been upgraded by running oil tubes directly to the main bearings. The main problem will be oil seal hardening, and blowing out of the clutch drums(like all autos), you'll hardly have a hard part failure, even the rear planet gear's thickness has been increased in later models. I'd use any recommended fluid, and just keep it cool as possible.
OLM = Oil Life Monitor
OCI = Oil Change Interval
My Cummins has over 100,000 miles and 5000 hrs on it and doesn't burn any oil.Neither does mine at 120k, not a drop. Now my CTS Caddy I have to keep a close eye on, it loves that 5w-30 synthetic Mobile1 I have to use in it. Think they have a deal going with Mobile.
