RE: 2019 Ram Reveal

Yep the first thing my wife told me when I got my Eco was you'er NOT going to change the exhaust on this truck....do you hear me! Happy wife happy life LOL. I liked the way my 04 sounded with the glasspack style exhaust myself, the wife not at all. My next truck just might be a 6.4 2500 with a Flowmaster exhaust system, maybe a 2019 after they redo the HD trucks.

RE: Ford finally releases specs for F-150 3.0L diesel

Bock VW was under investigation in early 2014 and the EPA on 09/15/2015 issued a notice of violation of the Clean Air Act. I can tell you first hand VM could not supply the engines needed to fill orders until late 2015. I had to wait four months for my truck and in 2014 people were waiting up to six months to get their truck. The slow down in EcoD sales was do to our own dieselgate. Although in the Rams there was not a cheat, but we failed to report some of the AECDs that all diesel engines have. This stopped all sales for the 2017 EcoD trucks by order of the EPA until late 2017. if there was not customers out there wanting a smaller diesel Ford and GM would not be getting in this market right?

RE: Ford finally releases specs for F-150 3.0L diesel

As does the EcoBoost engine! The 2014 had it's share of engine issues yes. Care to look at the EB's record in both engine failures and recalls? The only engine issue I have had was a coolant solenoid valve that was repaired under the powertrain coverage costing my nothing. That would be the only major issue have had some minor issues like the drivers puddle light and the fog lamps shaking. Both replaced under the 3/36,000 coverage at no cost. Why do you bring up the EB? I never mentioned it. I'm more concerned about the reliability of these small diesels. I just hope the Ram isn't any indication of what to expect from the Ford. But just for the record, the longest EB engine failure thread I could find was only 6 pages long. Because the 3.0 is not out and the and the 3.5 had far more issues then the 3.o EcoD did. Maybe if you take your blinders off you could see that. Most of the Ram EcoD issues were in the first six months with the later 2014 trucks and on not having any more problems than any other engine out there today. As for Fords 3.0 diesel I hope it has a good launch but I would not buy one for at least one year. That is what I did with the mine. I would never buy the first year of a any vehicle. Let the free beta testers get the bugs worked out then you have a better chance of not getting a problem child.

RE: Ford finally releases specs for F-150 3.0L diesel

we have a guy over @ ram1500diesel.com that has a 2014 EcoD and tows RV's for a living. He has almost 350K on the clock here is the list of major repairs in the first 250K miles, Light switch, tail light bulb, alignment 196,000, Lift pump - $158 part 230,000 replaced chalky serpentine belt 250,000. So these little diesels are nothing to turn your nose up at. There is also a 141 page thread at ram1500diesel . com called Eco diesel engine failures. 141 is a lot of pages. And I think you forgot to list the recalls. Nose up. As does the EcoBoost engine! The 2014 had it's share of engine issues yes. Care to look at the EB's record in both engine failures and recalls? The only engine issue I have had was a coolant solenoid valve that was repaired under the powertrain coverage costing my nothing. That would be the only major issue have had some minor issues like the drivers puddle light and the fog lamps shaking. Both replaced under the 3/36,000 coverage at no cost. I have had one recall that I received a free grill cover to protect the intercooler from freezing in the winter. the other to did not pertain to my truck. But this thread was about the new Ford 3.0 diesel not Rams. And sorry Bock but I was told by a Ford powertrain engineer at the 2014 North American Auto Show AKA the Detroit Auto Show that ford would not be bringing a diesel to the f150 and I reported that fact right here! So what Ford was telling it's dealers is NOT what Ford was telling the public and that is what I based and will base my post/posts on! Don

RE: 2019 Ram Reveal

Here are the facts on the 2019 Ram 1500. As for the EcoD Ram said last year it will be a some time after the first of the year. Still locked up by EPA. There is no 6.4 option even though FCA seems to have a fixation on building fast vehicles with big engines that make sh!ty mileage. Would think that the 6.4 in a Ram 1500 would be a no brainier for our* CEO. The Ram powertrain is now based on a 48-volt system, and provides faster stop-start as well as regenerative braking. In addition to better economy, the system provides some extra torque when it’s needed most — during a launch and when the transmission is shifting. A new, patent-pending front splayed frame rail creates an efficient energy-absorbing structure for all types of crashes, including front-offset; frame-mounted high-steel tire blockers behind the front tires force wheels outward in an impact.

RE: Ford finally releases specs for F-150 3.0L diesel

ShinerBock, you pretty well summed it up but I don't see any mention of the diesel costing around $4,000 more to start with. It seems like that would work out to about $50/month on the pretty common 7 year loan. I just did rough calculations in my head, please forgive me for not being exact. I didn't add that in because you mainly get the cost of the diesel option(or an option for the matter) back on resale and because interest rates can vary. Many still offer a 0% financing as well. But yeah, it is added costs to it depending on the interest rate. And the cost of a equally equipped f150 with the 3.5 EB and 10 speed cost more then the Ram EcoD and make a whole lot less mileage to boot!

RE: Ford finally releases specs for F-150 3.0L diesel

Just like Ecodiesel owners turned it into an ED holy-er than thou thread when this thread is specifically about a Ford diesel? The very same thing that Dodgeboy also does in Ecoboost threads? Dude you should learn to read. I said Ford will have a winner with this engine I didn't bring the EB into this. I was just posting a comment to Troy's post eight pages in no less. Sorry you can't figure that out. The only thing I said was that Ford decided they were going to fallow (copy) Ram's lead and jump into the 150/1500 diesel market like I said they would do way back in 2013 LMAO! Ford kept saying they were not going to build a f150 diesel all the way up to 2016. As for the EB threads I stay out of them until the Ram bashing starts and then I may or may not post something. Get your facts straight if you are going to talk Sh!t about someone pal. I have to disagree with you there based what I have seen with my own eyes. I don't think this Ford diesel will be able to tow 11k in extreme conditions within a limit that is acceptable to most. So do tell ShinerBock what have you seen with your own eyes? Ford's diesel is not out and the Ram EcoD tows trailers just fine. Again, we have a guy over @ ram1500diesel.com that has a 2014 EcoD and tows RV's for a living. He has almost 350K on the clock here is the list of major repairs in the first 250K miles, Light switch, tail light bulb, alignment 196,000, Lift pump - $158 part 230,000 replaced chalky serpentine belt 250,000. So these little diesels are nothing to turn your nose up at. Don

RE: Ford finally releases specs for F-150 3.0L diesel

ShinerBock my comment about Ford copying Ram was do to the fact the Ford came out and said they will not put a diesel in their f150. I was even told that at the NAAS in 2014 by a Ford rep. Then after Ram could not supply enough Ecodiesel trucks the first two years of production Ford decided it would jump on the band wagon. As to GM they dropped the 1500 diesel trucks what in the early 90'? So Ram didn't copy them. I can tow my 6800# boat at any speed I want and at 70 mph I'm still making over 13 mpg doing it. Now yes this is a boat not an RV and if I slow down to 60 mph I make over 17 mpg. You can't make that mileage in an EB towing We have guys towing way over the tow spec with these trucks without a single issue (not that I agree with it). We even have a guy running a 2014 Ram 1500 Laramie 3.0 ED towing RV's for a living with well over 350,000 miles on his truck! So sorry not only are these capable but they are the best riding trucks on the road today. When the EB came out I was very vocal about my doubting Fords EB would last. I also came on here and said that I was 100% wrong and Ford hit a home run with the EB engines. Don

RE: Ford finally releases specs for F-150 3.0L diesel

I don't see much practical advantage over the base Ecoboost. Not much MPG gain, much more potential headache. Much like the EcoDiesel vs Pentastar. Drive them back to back, the Pentastar is faster and can tow nearly the same amount of weight. Just a few MPG difference on the highway. Never mind the high premium to go with the Babystroke or the EcoDiesel. These new gas V6 trucks are bargains. Great economy and decent power. Thanks! Jeremiah x2 Well as an owner of a EcoD and having driven many a 3.5 Ram V-6 I can tell you first hand the EcoD wins hands down in every segment! With any diesel off the line power can not be touched by a gasser. As far as towing goes, the little EcoD will run circles around the Pentastar both in towing comfort and fuel economy. The only place a NA V-6 gas engine should be is in a car not a pickup! Now when FCA finally gets around to adding turbos to the Pentastar then we will have something. But that's not going to happen until the Big Italian Weenie retires and takes his millions with him.

RE: Ford finally releases specs for F-150 3.0L diesel

If I were to buy a F150 I would most certainly go with a 3.5 Eco Boost. With 125hp less and 30ft/lbs more torque and a little better fuel economy I don't think they'll sell a lot of them compared to the Eco Boost. If I wanted a diesel I would go with a F250/350 6.7 Power Stroke. This new diesel uses a timing belt to drive over head cams compared to the Eco diesel and the 5.0 cummins that uses timing chains. Have to disagree with you here Troy. The Ecoboost can not hit it's reported EPA mileage unless you are willing to drive it like a 90 year old grandma. Ford is saying they are looking at 30 MPG out of their little diesel and I bet they will make it. Well in certain models with an Eco final gear ratio. With their new 10 speed and a 3.31 gear they should be able to hit the 30 mpg. There is no way a 3.5 Ecoboost can come anywhere near that in the real world. There is a reason Ford copied Ram and put a 3.0 diesel in their f-150, it's because they are great little engines and Ford's 3.0 should make it to the Ward's top ten list when it comes to market. If I make it to the Detroit Auto Show this year I see if they have one on display and get some pics of it. Don

RE: Ford Ecoboost to 6.2L Economy

Again, that was not what you originally said or posted......you keep "double speaking"......The EB recommends premium for heavy duty usage, it is not the same advisement or context as the 6.2 in the F250, which does not refer to usage, but to best performance, which all the recent owners manuals for the more recent generation of Ford powertrains suggest. And to state the obvious, a 7000# truck does not perform as well as a 5000# truck with similar power......I never suggested it did either. The EB manual says for best performance. I don't find where it says premium is required? Here is an excerpt: "Premium fuel will provide improved performance and is recommended for severe duty usage such as trailer tow." And here is an excerpt from the 2017 F250 manual: "For best overall vehicle and engine performance, premium fuel with an octane rating of 91 or higher is recommended. The performance gained by using premium fuel is most noticeable in hot weather as well as other conditions, for example when towing a trailer." They look like they are both saying the same thing to me. My F150 is almost 6000lbs. So yes, there is at least a 1000lb difference, maybe a little more? But I haveeeds contemplated that, too. I've towed with much more weight on the F150 than I did on my recent trip towing with the F250, including 4 more people and all of their carp...which I promise weighed more than 1000 lbs. This last trip was just me and one of our dogs. Have to say I do not read it as the same. What I take from the two passages you posted is that the EB only needs premium fuel when towing or under severe duty usage. But the 2017 250 and most likely the 350,450 and 550 trucks should be run on premium fuel all the time "for best results". That does not mean you have to use premium fuel but to achieve the best results from your truck you will need to run premium fuel. Don

RE: I guess I will be driving a new Ford tomorrow

OMG really, what part of "Yes it is a good engine, heck even a great engine. But Bullet proof it is not! Just like anything made in large numbers under high volume there will be the occasional bad engine coming off ANY assembly line. Ford's plants are no different then any other car companies.". As to posting a link, that was done because otherwise I would hear, where's you proof. GM, FCA and every other manufacture has engine failures. It is a fact of life, how it is dealt with is the question. Don So by.....buy WTF you want.

RE: Billet Fuel Cap for Ram CTD?

Anyone using the aftermarket billet aluminum gas cap with o-ring on the later Ram Cummins trucks? Looks like a good idea to replace the little red plastic cap which can blow away if you set it on the tonneau cover! They're all over Amazon and Ebay This is a plastic cap with a tether from Mopar. Cost is around 17 bucks. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/20161014_035332_zpss2rjzodv.jpg height=300 width=500

RE: I guess I will be driving a new Ford tomorrow

Glade they are getting you back on the road sooner then six weeks! As for the guys that think this engine is bullet proof you might want to slow down on the Blue Kool-Aid a bit! Yes it is a good engine, heck even a great engine. But Bullet proof it is not! LINK to 6.2 Engine Failures Just like anything made in large numbers under high volume there will be the occasional bad engine coming off ANY assembly line. Ford's plants are no different then any other car companies. It is quantity first then they worry about quality. We have a Toolmaker that took his two week vacation and started a job at a Ford plant. After one week he told them to "take their job and shove it" and came back to work for FCA. He will tell you "if you think FCA is screwed up try working for Ford. They are a joke!". This is not BS and as you will note in the last quote he said he thinks FCA is screwed up too! And before you go thinking GM is better I know first hand how GM is run. My Dad put in over thirty years at the Toledo Powertrain plant. He would come home and tell me stories that would make you turn red with anger. He drove Fords most of the time he worked at GM and bought a 91 Ram after he retired not a GM. He does like his Cadillac's though LOL So stop beat the drums boys because if any of you knew what really goes on in the auto plants you would by a horse and buggy! Don

RE: Off Road Mashup: ZR2 vs Raptor vs Power Wagon

Back in the day I ran Dodge Ram Chargers and took them off roading with some buddies of mine. The only thing that could out do my Ram was a buddies fj40. That thing was a beast in any off road environment. Heck he could forge water over the hood. I had to make up a cover to protect the stupid ballast resistor from getting wet and stopping the truck dead in the water! The one thing I noticed is Ram is the only one that has a shield protecting the fuel tank. Found that a bit strange. I also don't understand why they didn't use the Ram Rebel instead of the Power Wagon. No the Rebel does not the same off road components that the Raptor and Power Wagon have. But neither does the GM ZR2. Here is a sisde be side test of the Power Wagon and the Rebel. The Reble did very well. http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2017/05/can-a-ram-rebel-keep-up-with-a-power-wagon-in-the-arizona-desert-.html Still think it came down to the tries on the Power Wagon myself Don

RE: I guess I will be driving a new Ford tomorrow

OK I have to ask, how can it take 30 days before they can even get started on it. I mean after all, all we hear on this site is how all of the Ford guys never have to take their trucks in for warranty service, ever. Heck we have guys claiming they are still running their factory brake pads and rotors after 150K miles! This dealer must only have one or two service bays....that has to be it. All kidding aside, as carringb posted, file a notice of intent under the lemon law and see how fast Ford gets your truck fixed for you! This is for Washington States Lemon Law site. Link to PDF What is a "Lemon"? Your vehicle may qualify as a "lemon" if it has one or more significant defects that have been subject to a "reasonable number of attempts" to diagnose or repair defect(s) covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. The law covers only defects that "substantially impair" the use, value, or safety of the motor vehicle. A manufacturer is required to repurchase or replace a vehicle with a "nonconformity" or "serious safety defect" after a "reasonable number of attempts" to diagnose or repair the vehicle have occurred when requested by a consumer. A Lemon Law arbitrator can determine if a consumer’s request is justified under the Lemon Law’s standards. At an arbitration hearing, the arbitrator will expect to receive proof of a consumer’s claim for each defect that occurred in your vehicle including the type and the claim categories. 4. Days Out-of-Service Days out-of-service are accumulated during attempts to diagnose or repair one or more "nonconformities" or "serious safety defects." The vehicle has been out of service due to diagnosis or repair meeting this claim category when: •A total of 30 or more cumulative calendar days for diagnosis or repairs have occurred •At least 15 of the days occurred during the period of the manufacturer’s written warranty and during the "eligibility period" • To add to cumulative days out-of-service a nonconformity or serious safety defect must have been subject to diagnosis or repair at least once during the "eligibility period Don
