RE: Ram ecodiesel problems?

Mich800 seems the to be catalytic converters and EGR coolers from what I have seen on the other forums. Have not heard about the fuel filter housing issue with the Cummins, what is the issue? I work in the QC department now and can tell you we have vendor sorts going on every day. Just like every car company out there, yep even GM Nutz SMH. No one has incoming inspection anymore, the vendor certifies the parts are in spec and they come in to the plant and go right out to the floor. If an out of spec part is not caught during assembly it ends up in a vehicle and is just a ticking bomb for the customer. These again is the way it is done at ALL the car companies no mater the brand. Don

RE: Ram ecodiesel problems?

Bucky I hope you don't go to work for another dealer then. They all have recall parts that are on back order. GM more so then FCA and Ford. I did say this " Getting parts seems to be the biggest issue with this engine. Only one plant is making it right now and parts are hard to come by. " What do you do for the dealership? Not supply chain management I'm guessing ;) Now a days all manufactures share parts from the same vendors. So when******happens the vendor not only still has to supply the assembly plants but now they have to make parts for the recall, not an easy task. The only issue I have had with my truck was the U-connect froze up. When I stopped for coffee I turned the truck off and when I restarted it a few minutes later it was fine and has never done it again. I do have to take it in for the ECM DEF re-flash one of these days. Not a big deal for me but I'm sure some other people would make a big deal about it. Don

RE: Ram ecodiesel problems?

So now that it has been confirmed that Mustangshawn is nothing short of a liar we can move on right? BTW look up his youtube account and watch some of his videos, he claims to have owned two Ford F-150 ecoboost trucks that were noting but junk, his words not mine. He also claims the same thing about his GM/Chevy trucks he has owned. Ram Trucks voided his powertrain coverage do to him hacking his truck up and adding two different tuners on his truck. :) Hi Bob, no Bob "dragging in the early Ecoboost will make you feel better about the Ecodiesel??????" it was meant to point out that ALL new models will have some growing pains. As far as the buy backs, all but two that I'm aware of where do to repairs taking over 30 days to complete. Getting parts seems to be the biggest issue with this engine. Only one plant is making it right now and parts are hard to come by. Don

RE: Ram ecodiesel problems?

After doing a little research with a buddy of mine that was thinking of buying a new Ram with the ecodiesel... I thought they were doing pretty good? This was just some of the highlights. I think if anyone was going to be getting one of these I'd wait for a while until they get it sorted out. I can't help wonder what happened to the Edmunds long term tester, cp 4.2? Edmunds long term tester ->Ram ecodiesel on the hook Fuel system replacement -> Major fuel system problem No idea what went wrong here, but we will find out. Fumes in the cab making people sick -> ecodiesel makes me sick There was/is an exhaust tube that can split. An new design has fixed that issue. No smells in my 2015, all the one I have seen are 2014 trucks and are being addressed. 2014 ram 1500 ecodiesel in cab exhaust smells explained This guy is the same clown that posted he switched to Ram because his Ford 150 EB X2 were junk, along with his two GM/Chevy trucks. Now his Ram is junk, he is a self claimed expert that is nothing more than a hack. Note the next two "issues" are from the same "fuel system export" idit. Upset owner with quality issues -> poor quality Blowby -> Blowby video The Eco diesel is not having anymore issues then the Ford Ecoboost did when it first came out. Oh and BTW I know of at least five Ram Eco diesels that have been bought back by Ram without ever having to go to court. So at least Ram is taking care of their customers! Don

RE: MPG test ecoboost vs ecodiesel

Here's some more video of the 2.7 EcoBoost vs the 3.0 MV motori diesel. Just for the record... Let's call this a Ford commercial so Don doesn't get his undiroos in a knot. LOL Link Tory Tory Tory Tory Tory......what part of this are you not getting my ole buddy...ole pal? The Ford with it's twin turbo powered gas engine will toast the Ram single turbo diesel engine every time. Now if we put the same turbos on the Ram I wonder what would happen :h:@ you tell me. Two different goals here Troy. One is going for fuel economy in a pick up both loaded and unloaded. The other is going for speed and that's about it. Yep it out tows the Ram and it is faster than the Ram. You win I'll make sure to keep my junk Ram in the right lane with the fourways going to warn all the Ford buys that a slow moving Ram Eco-diesel is on the highway. Will that work for you Troy? I bet you are the kind of guy I used to have pass me towing all the time. Then later in the day you would pass me again, why because you had to stop for fuel two times to my one time. Have a wonderful Ford day Troy! Don Oh BTW the "Manufacture Plates" tell us that is a Ford sponsored event Troy. But it's OK anyone that dares to talk bad about Ford is just a hater right Troy? Love ya man. Now I have to pull those "underoos" out of my A$$ LMAO

RE: MPG test ecoboost vs ecodiesel

Yep looks like FCA and Ford are five years, 100,000 miles and GM is six years 100,000. Was sure they all had ten year coverage. But they all have the same issue with rust Ford GM Ram Hope you don't think buying a Ford or GM will solve your rust problems! Actually, buying a Ford would, in fact, solve the rust problem. The aluminum body doesn't rust (or so I've been duly-informed by the corrosion protection engineering manager). It may oxidize or corrode, but it does not rust. ;) Rust is, by definition, oxidation of a ferrous material. Was referring to the pre-aluminum bodies, but yep no rust with the new bodies, just oxidation and corrosion. Think back to the GM's with the bumpers that would fall off from them no placing a plastic shim between the aluminum bumper reinforcement and steel mounting bracket.

RE: 2015 F150 Off Road Snowy 4x4 Review

I always see commercials and videos for 4x4's and think but I could drive a Buick through that, this one is no different. Powdery and not so deep is fun to play in, it's the 18-30 inch storms with heavy wet snow that weed out the wanna be's. So that's why they used the Ford in that video then! :W:W:W:W:W:W

RE: MPG test ecoboost vs ecodiesel

Well zealot, explain why my 2004 with 150,000 miles had ZERO rust on it? I live in NW Ohio where they heavily salt the roads and spray a brine solution on the roads! But again no rust on my vehicles or any of the 13 other Chrysler vehicles I have owned. So if your Dodge rusted out why didn't you get it repaired under the 10 year 100,000 mile rust through protection, you know the same coverage that ford and Chevy gives their customers? Don

RE: 2015 F150 Off Road Snowy 4x4 Review

LOL Tory, it's all good brother, cool video not sure who had more fun, the dog or the driver! Would like to see them do that with the Ram equipped the the air suspension. Looks like my lowly Ram as something in common with the great and mighty F-150.....they both run the same slippers! :B Don

RE: 2.7L EB vs 3.0 ED 0-60

Not sure why you think I'm complaining, the Ecoboost is one fast engine. As it should be with two mini turbos spooling up! As I said before, I tosted a F-150 EB off the line in my Ecodiesel, but he walked by me like I was standing still by time I was in fourth gear. No doubt about it, they are fast, but as soon as you start using that boost your fuel mileage goes right in the toilet. Don Momma had given me the green light to buy a SRT Challenger if i wanted. Just could not see myself not getting a boat load a tickets in that thing and having to sell it to pay the fines and insurance. Just like most Ecoboost owners, you just can't help yourself. Heck, I got a ticket in the new truck two weeks ago, this thing rides so much smoother than my 2500 04 Ram that you don't realize you're going as fast as you are.

RE: 2.7L EB vs 3.0 ED 0-60

Yes these trucks are not similarly equipped so you have to form your own conclusion. Having said that It's probably very difficult for these auto guys to get exact equipped trucks. No it's not, that event was a Ford sponsored event Troy and you know that. They had 5 different Rams and five different GM or Chevy trucks. Notice the truck that they us for the drag race was a blue Outdoorsman with 3.55 gears. The truck they used for the MPG segment was a Laramie Longhorn with the 3.92 gear in 4X4. Every Manufacture is going to make sure their vehicle comes out on top. Funny they only ran a 1/8 and not a 1/4 mile LOL. Ford marketing, OK our truck looks really really good in the 1/8 mile run so lets use that. The up side is most of the sheep will never question it and think it ran a 6 second 1/4 mile run. OK go ahead and flame me. Don

RE: What was Ram thinking

Ok I wasn't even going to comment anymore, but since Don threw me under the bus I simply stated my opinion along with other RAM owners negative opinion about this latest design release. I didn't even see Don smack down the current RAM owners in this thread who made negative comments about Dons' companies latest design release, but I guess they as usual get a free pass. :h One more time Don.... Control the angst my friend! :W God I love you Troy, hay do you work as a spin Doctor? This BS all started after I posted my comment and yes took a shoot at the fact that SD is stamped in 6 or 7 places on their trucks. My point was why is that OK from a design stand point? What did that get me 5 different people jumping down my throat because I dared make a negative comment about their vehicle. Hell I even had a Chevy guy jump on me and I said I like the looks of the new GM/Chevy LOL! I don't care if you make your feelings known about the new Laramie Limited, I also don't like the the badge on the tailgate. My bet is that will be addressed. But don't try and make me out to be the guy that only posts negative things about Ford. He who is without hater posts, cast out the first comment. LOL Don

RE: MPG test ecoboost vs ecodiesel

It's been a long time since I saw an analog gauge (except possibly the voltmeter) in any new vehicle. The pointer is typically driven by a stepper motor and points wherever the computer tells it to.You'll see some do a full sweep on startup. Possibly a self-calibration? You're correct, when you see the needles on your gauges sweep back in forth they are calibrating. Lets put things in predictive, these videos are done at a Ford sponsored event! Watch all of them and you will notice a few things, one when they do their drag and slalom race they use a different Ram than they did for the Fuel milage test. Don't fool yourself no manufacture Ford, Ram or anyone else are not going to put a test together for the media without first doing them privately and figuring out how to make their vehicle come out on top. Here some more pop corn for you guys. LINK Don

RE: MPG test ecoboost vs ecodiesel

Or take a look at older Fords, GM/Chevy's, Toyota, Honda, Mercedes and every other brand out there. They all rust, every last one of them. That is unless you take care of them. My 2004 Ram with 150K on it had zero rust on it. Why because I took care of it. Waxed the door jambs, the door frames and would wipe them all down once a month with a damp rag weather permitting. That truck looked as good the day I sold it as it did the day I picked it up new. Dog Trainer, I would love to talk to your dear friend, because I know for a fact that all of our vehicles are protected as well as the other manufactures. Now does that mean there could not be issues? Yes there can be! The 2001-2004 Stratus, Sebring and Avenger are an example. They ALL rusted out at the front of the hood. Why, as the bodies were dunked in the E bath, there was no opening for the solution to make it to the very front area inside the hood lip. So there was bear metal left untreated and it would rust. It took 3-4 years before it showed up and was covered under the 10/100,000 rust coverage. The fix, add three stamped holes so the rust inhibitor could coat that area. Anyone that has any vehicle that rusts out from the inside out (not from chips in the paint or improper body repairs) and their vehicle is less than 10 years old and has less than 100,000 miles can get it fixed under warranty.

RE: What was Ram thinking

Correct me if I am wrong but there is not a single location on the 13 and newer trucks that say DODGE. Only place on my 11 is the little cubby above the stereo. My 2015 it reads Ram. No where does it say Dodge, not even in the owners manual. Lets clear the air here though. Some of you assume I'm mad, I'm not, I think it's kind of funny that there are a few on this site that feel they need to post negative things about anything Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, Jeep or Fiat. Now when they do, than yes I will respond, Troy can not help himself and it is kind of funny too. The others that make comments about rusting and try and back their statements up using "well I know this guy" Or "I was walking the dog and I came across this guy" whatever. When I post about Ford , it is from MY experience not second, third or even fourth hand. I was treated very poorly by Ford and their dealers. Go check my posts, I don't get on Ford threads and post smack, to bad the same can't be said for the few others on this site. Truth be known, I was done with Chrysler back in 1989 until a found a small dealer that actually cared about his customers! Everyone knows I work for Chrysler, I don't hide that fact. It does get very tiring when you have grown men that act like high schoolers bashing people just because they think it's cool. Grow the hell up! If you don't like FCA then don't buy their vehicles, and stay the hell out of threads about them! As I said, I don't TROLL the Ford threads so why do you TROLL FCA threads. Makes you look piety and stupid IMO. Don

RE: What was Ram thinking

Now fast forward and it's interesting (actually sad) how Bloomberg (or whatever his name is who is in charge of RAM today) want's RAM trucks to distant themselves as far away from Dodge as possible. You should learn to use Google more Tory, it was under Fred Diaz that Ram became it's own Line. Executives at Chrysler have stated their intention to compete in the semi-trailer truck category with Ram, a possibility that is aided by Fiat's ownership of Iveco and an already available network of Dodge dealers. Even though the Ram trucks are marketed separately from Dodge cars, Former Ram Division President Fred Diaz stated, "Ram trucks will always and forever be Dodges. Ram will always have the Dodge emblem inside and outside and they will be vinned as a Dodge. We need to continue to market as Ram so Dodge can have a different brand identity hip, cool, young, energetic. That will not fit the campaign for truck buyers. The two should have distinct themes. I don't understand why some have an issue with the Ram truck being it's own line. The SRT is coming back under the Dodge banner this year. The Dart and Journey are getting an SRT version. 2015 is the last year for the Dodge Caravan and Avenger. Chrysler will only offer the minivan after 2015. Don

RE: MPG test ecoboost vs ecodiesel

The surprise is that the diesel did not beat the gasser by more than it did. 2.3 mpg (less than 10%) is not nearly enough to make up the difference in diesel costs. No surprise at all, test apples to apples and see how it works. The Ford was a super cab that weighed in at 4920# and the Ram was a crew cab that weighed in at 5840# that is 920# difference! Then add in the fact that the Ram had 3.92 gears and the Ford had 3.55 gears. From the story " Both trucks cruised effortlessly, but the Ford was actually running closer to 1,700 rpm at 65 mph. The Ram was humming at around 1,900 rpm. " Funny my truck has the 3.92 gears and @ 60 MPH it is turning 1550 RPM and @ 65 it is turning a tic over 1600 not 1900 why the difference? I'll give Ford their due, the Ecoboost line of engines have turned out to be very good engines as well as being fast! But fast does not equal good fuel economy. BTW why do they pump the sound of a V-8 into the cab via the radio lolThe MPG is pennies compared to the big assss rust holes in the fenders and tail gates. I'll never buy another Dodge. Maybe take care of your vehicles and they won't have big assss rust holes in them. None of my vehicles have rusted out, well there was that Ford Aroestar that rotted out. all vehicles will rust if you don't keep them clean, yep even a Ford. You guys are funny.
