RE: 2007 GMC 2500HD HEATER CORE PROBLEMS!! help

There are only 2 times I can think of that I would use Bars Leak...If we were stranded 200 miles from the nearest civilization and my wife was going into labor, or I was just trying to limp a vehicle to the salvage yard. I don't want anything in my engine that is designed to plug things. X2 Time to take it to a GOOD shop, be it a dealer or service center. This is not going to be a easy nor cheap fix. I would request that I get the old heater core back even if it cost you a core charge. Then carefully cut it open and see just how plugged up it is. The fact that you let a shop flush it and swap out the DEX Cool makes it on you even if there was some kind of GM coverage. Keep the core cut it open and see what it looks like, my bet it's all plugged up. Don

RE: Time to give up my DW, I mean DT (Dear Truck)?

Well I had a 2004 2500 Ram Cummins that really needed nothing, had kept up on maintenance (more than needed truth be told) but I just could not see using a HD truck made for towing and work to drive back and forth to work. If you have not done anything to the truck, trans service, antifreeze, brake fluid and gear lube changes then you are or should be looking to them. As someone else posted, ALL of the rubber bushing are in need of replacement and have been for 150,000 miles now, along with shocks and all rubber brake lines and on and on. You can figure about $7,000/$10,000 to bring the truck back to it's "glory days" so you have to figure out, do I need a HD truck and if so is it worth putting this much money into it. At this point only you know the answer to this question and if you asking, I would say no. Don

RE: UPDATE! Picking up the 2015 Eco-Diesel Friday/Saturday! :)

Bamaman1 it's only 22 pages if you change your settings ;) It's all good, I understand Ninebikers point, heck I even posted the wrong spec from the owners manual! This new (to North America) VM 3.0 diesel engine has some very stringent oil requirements and needs to be followed to the letter if you do not want to damage it. But here @ RV.net if a thread does not get derailed every couple of pages it wouldn't feel like home now would it guys? ;) Hay Tory here is one for you ole buddy! I bought a $52,308 (sticker) truck and FCA/Ram does not even put a damn fuel filler cap on it! There is a green plastic plug stuffed in it! The dealer is supposed to remove it and throw it away! I asked them to leave it in place until my aftermarket cap shows up! :M BTW the lie-o-meter shows 17.9 MPG now, with half a tank of fuel left, can't remember the mileage though. About 50/50 city highway. Don

RE: UPDATE! Picking up the 2015 Eco-Diesel Friday/Saturday! :)

What oil are the Jeep Cherokee owners using? My 3.2L V6 uses 5w20 dino oil, the 2.4L I4 uses 0w20 synthetic. I think he was meaning to say Grand Cherokee not "Cherokee" IB. The GC can be ordered with the VM 3.0 diesel the Cherokee can not, not in the US/Canada anyway. The 3.0 diesel uses oil meeting the ACEA-C3 specs. As Ninesbiker pointed out any oil listing the ACEA-C3 spec can be used in the VM 3.0 diesel engine. Interesting enough I called Amsoil and talked to someone in their technical service department and was told that at this time Amsoil does not have a oil that meets the Chrysler MS-11106 specs!? But on their own website it states; Manufacturer Approvals BMW Longlife-04 MB-Approval 229.51 Porsche A40 Recommended for: API CF/SN/SM... ACEA C3 Ford WSS-M2C917-A GM dexos2™ (supersedes LL-A-025 and LL-B-025) *Chrysler MS-10850 (supersedes MS-10896)* Renault RN0700/RN0710 Volkswagen 502.00/505.01 * note the spec that supersedes the MB spec is not the CS-11106 spec. So is the CS-11106 the same as the MB-229.51 spec? Don

RE: UPDATE! Picking up the 2015 Eco-Diesel Friday/Saturday! :)

Looks like I quoted the gas oil spec not the VM 3.0 diesel oil spec! :o For best performance and maximum protection under all types of operating conditions, the manufacturer recommends engine oils that meet the requirements of Chrysler Material Standard MS-11106, and that are approved to ACEA C3. Only use ACEAC3 SAE 5W-30 Synthetic Low Ash engine oil meeting Chrysler material standard MS-11106 or Pennzoil Ultra Euro L full synthetic 5W-30 motor oil,which is recommended for all operating temperatures. This engine oil improves low temperature starting and vehicle fuel economy. CAUTION! Your vehicle is equipped with an advanced technology Diesel Engine and an emission device designed to limit Diesel Particulate Emissions from being released into the atmosphere. The durability of your engine and life expectancy of this diesel particulate filter emission device is highly dependent on the use of the correct engine oil. I would highly recommend that anyone owning any vehicle follow what the manufacturer recommends if they want to keep their warranty intact. There are many oil companies that meet the MS-11106 or ACEA C3 spec.

What oil are the Jeep Cherokee owners using? If you are asking about the Jeep "Grand" Cherokee with the 3.0 diesel then yes they both use the same oil and filters.

deleted. Quoted the gas spec not the diesel spec, see post further down for correct spec. Sorry for the confusion, Don

RE: UPDATE! Picking up the 2015 Eco-Diesel Friday/Saturday! :)

Have logged well over 1,000,000 miles on my vehicles. Never have "warmed up" anything. Of course I have ran AMZ/OIL in most all my vehicles. They do not have any oil or anything for that matter for the 3.0 ED yet. Sent them an e-mail asking when they will be providing parts and fluids for it and will let you know what they come back with.

RE: UPDATE! Picking up the 2015 Eco-Diesel Friday/Saturday! :)

Here is what the Diesel Supplement Owners Manual says, Engine Idling Avoid prolonged idling, long periods of idling may be harmful to your engine because combustion chamber temperatures can drop so low that the fuel may not burn completely. Incomplete combustion allows carbon and varnish to form on piston rings, cylinder head valves, and injector nozzles. Also, the unburned fuel can enter the crankcase, diluting the oil and causing rapid wear to the engine. So from here on out I will use the remote start when I'm outside the turnstiles heading to the parking lot. BTW I never hot rod the truck when she is cold, just a fine lady it's best to bring her up to temperature before pouring the coals to her ;) Don

Not to mention start up idle times in the winter. I usually start it up five minutes before I walk through the gate at work if the temps are below 35*.

RE: Pentastar v6 Turbo is coming

The 3.6 Mopar V6, is a great engine. Has a variety of applications from Jeep, minivans, sedans, pickups. Lot's of punch as is...can only imagine what it will be pushing out turbocharged. One of the JD Power top ten engines, if I'm not wrong. Not sure about JD Power but it was a three time Wards winner but did not make the cut for 2015. The Ecodiesel was a top ten winner in 2014 and 2015. My guess is you will see the Pentastar back on the list for 2016. Don

RE: Pentastar v6 Turbo is coming

From what I have read it will not be a twin turbo and I'm not sure why :h. Would think they would follow Ford and go with two small high RPM turbos not a single turbo, but then what do I know. :) Don http://www.allpar.com/news/index.php/2014/08/pentastar-boost-coming

RE: 2014 F150 Ecoboost Review

I have too agree, the 3.55 is not going to feel the same as the 3.73 and will show up in off the line feel. I have yet to see a dog EB and have to say all it takes to get a EB driver going is for a Ram to pull alongside of it. ;) Just had one dust me sunday morning! :B Pulled alongside of him at the stop light and I told my DW watch this. I looked over at him and as soon as he looked over I nodded and it was on like Donkey Kong! Light turned green and he was gone in a flash, DW said yep you never stood a chance! LOL They are fast but then I am driving one of the slowest trucks out on the road. :C Don

RE: UPDATE! Picking up the 2015 Eco-Diesel Friday/Saturday! :)

The front bumper has a bunch of sensors on it, like the rear does. What are the front sensors for? Auto parking or ... ? No "ParkSense® Front / Rear Park Assist System The ParkSense® front / rear park assist system uses sound waves to detect nearby obstacles in and near the rear path of the vehicle to help you maneuver in tight spaces at parking speeds. Audiovisual indicators in the overhead display in the rear of the vehicle alert you to the proximity of most larger, stationary objects that might be outside your line of sight. Always check entire surroundings before backing up. ParkSense is a registered trademark of Chrysler Group LLC. Before it is asked there are two buttons under the radio to turn them off for trailer towing. You can turn the rear or front off. Don

RE: UPDATE! Picking up the 2015 Eco-Diesel Friday/Saturday! :)

OK first a report. My first tank of fuel netted me 18.3 hand cal. Put 317 miles on it at the fill up with just a tick over 1/4 of a tank left. Not great but then it is brand new and after she got 100 miles on her I was not babying her, not beating her but put my foot in it. No issues to report at all as it should be. The idle is very smooth now, would like to see better heat out of the butt warmers, my wifes 200 are a lot warmer than my trucks. I would say her warm setting is my hot setting. Other than that she's a keeper! Now for the pics! :C http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/DSCF3226_zps51bf022c.jpg height=750 width=750 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/DSCF3224_zps5e7dbd12.jpg height=750 width=750 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/DSCF3222_zpsbcc7e691.jpg height=750 width=750 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/DSCF3232_zps06843fc6.jpg height=750 width=750 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/DSCF3227_zpsebe51f1d.jpg height=750 width=750 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/DSCF3228_zps26b5c7fe.jpg height=750 width=750 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/DSCF3229_zpsf548e363.jpg height=750 width=750 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/DSCF3233_zpsc867ec96.jpg height=750 width=750 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/DSCF3235_zps9cbac4f6.jpg height=750 width=750 http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/DSCF3236_zpsebd03cb4.jpg height=750 width=750 These four pics are for Tory...look Troy no damaged rockers or any overspray!

RE: UPDATE! Picking up the 2015 Eco-Diesel Friday/Saturday! :)

What is the heater plug adaptor for? Block heater? Yes, it for the block heater. E-Bay has the cords for sale at a good price too. Yep the block heater. My truck was ordered with the cord but I want cut off the end and install one of these. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/2004%20Ram%202500%20Cummins/2123393740034694626OfYyEy_ph_zpsd415ec4a.jpg height=250 width=250 I installed it on the lower front valance of the bumper of my 04 and it worked out great. However I'm not sure it will fit there on the 2015, if not then it will go under the hood. Just do not like a cord hanging out the front of the truck. There is a guy that installed one into the rear bumper and it looks factory. Don

RE: UPDATE! Picking up the 2015 Eco-Diesel Friday/Saturday! :)

Wow someone needs to get back on their meds or something here. OK so we have been on 12 hour days and I have been installing upgrades to the truck as they show up. First the Husky weathertech liners, then mud flaps and finally the Bakflip cover that came on wednesday. Only thing left is the window tinting and the heater plug adaptor under the hood and she will be all done. I will post pics sometime late saturday as I have to pick up mama's new Glock 26 from the dealer by 2 pm. Thanks for all the comments and well wishes, so far so good. Have to say the bed liner from line-x came out great and the other mods look fantastic on the truck! Don

RE: Who needs sway control

I always wanted to drive a HD tow truck Jimbobjoe! Someone must of forgot to tell him those things on the side of the doors are mirrors, and you might just want to look out them once and awhile to see what your load is doing...or maybe not....either way he will be looking for a new job next! Don
