RE: Ball bearings!!

Well I'm in the rust belt and just finished an oil and filter change. At 145,600 miles not one bit of rust on the oil pan, but I wash my truck at least every other week if not every week in the winter. My oil change cost me almost $160 in parts, 15W40 Amsoil full syn. and their filter, the extended 25,000/12 month. have a sample all bottled up ready to ship out Monday to Blackstone Labs. I did add 2 quarts of the HOT SHOT'S SECRET Stiction Eliminator other wise it would have been $125. Don

RE: Ball bearings!!

Not sure how one hub can cost $2100 what I would question is who told her or called it a "wheel bearing"? It is a hub and any dealer would call it a hub. If they are replacing both you might hit the $2100 but not for one. Did she in fact take it to a Chrysler dealer? If so please PM me. Don

RE: New to us TV, Tahoe vs. Expedition vs. Durango?

A 119" WB IMO is to short. I have seen too many SUV's flipped on their side towing 30' and larger RV's. They are not a good TV for longer RV's. Can they be made safe, yep. HD vehicle sway bars, e-rated tires and HD trailer sway control. But for the cost to do that, you can get a much better TV. Most crew cabs have a WB of 148" to 168" and are much better suited for towing a 30' and longer RV. For the OP and his current TT any of the SUV's will tow it and tow it very well. If he knows that he is not going to upgrade his TT any time soon then go for it. Find one you like and if it's a Durango go with the 5.7 NOT the 4.7 you will be much happier with the Hime. Don

RE: New to us TV, Tahoe vs. Expedition vs. Durango?

Hello, there is one thing that a lot of rv'ers do and you have a chance to avoid their costly mistake. I have been there I went through this as well. That is the upgrade bug. Here's what happens. The children get a little older and they start wanting to bring friends along with them. The next thing you know the camper is too small. So now you're looking at upgrading to a much bigger camper. Maybe you're looking for bunks. Maybe looking for rear living. But inevitably most people do upgrade to a larger trailer at some point in their experience. Right now you have the opportunity to find a 2500 suburban or a very nice Ford Excursion. These two SUV's will give you plenty of capacity to carry people, gear, and larger trailers in the future. That said. Any of the halfton suv's will pull your current trailer. I am a huge fan of longer wheelbase for towing a trailer. So I would lean more towards a suburban then I would say Durango or Tahoe, the Expedition EL would be a good choice. Thanks, Jeremiah I agree 100% with Jeremiah, unless you have no intention of upgrading the Durango size SUZ's are not good for a longer (over 26') RV. The WB is to short and unless you spend tons of money on towing adds you are going to have sway issues. Now if your going to stay in the 26' or under range, the Durango is a very good tow vehicle. If not look at the larger SUV's or crew/quad cab trucks. Good luck Don

RE: GM suspends two engineers in disciplinary action

The engineers were the fall guys. An executive made the decision not an engineer. No different than when Lee Iacocca while at Ford saw the cost to replace the Pinto gas cap that could cause a fuel fire in an accident and decided it was cheaper to pay off the lawsuits and did not make the change. Ford did not replace the defective fuel caps for a full 8 years. When Iacocca went over to Chrysler we saw his approach to car making with terrible K cars. Iacocca stated "safety does not sell" as though that excused his criminal conduct. He should have gone to jail but the people at the top never do. Small peanuts though compared to lying about WMD's and causing the needless deaths of tens of thousands of men, women, and children, all for the sake of US oil companies' profits. Just a few facts for you. One the gas cap was not the issue, the placement of the fuel tank was the cause of the fires. http://users.wfu.edu/palmitar/Law&Valuation/Papers/1999/Leggett-pinto.html "The controversy surrounding the Ford Pinto concerned the placement of the automobile's fuel tank. It was located behind the rear axle, instead of above it. This was initially done in an effort to create more trunk space. The problem with this design, which later became evident, was that it made the Pinto more vulnerable to a rear-end collision. This vulnerability was enhanced by other features of the car. The gas tank and the rear axle were separated by only nine inches. There were also bolts that were positioned in a manner that threatened the gas tank. Finally, the fuel filler pipe design resulted in a higher probability that it would to disconnect from the tank in the event of an accident than usual, causing gas spillage that could lead to dangerous fires. Because of these numerous design flaws, the Pinto became the center of public debate." The highlighted part in the above text is the reason the Pinto's tank could rupture in a rear end collision. If hit hard enough the link bar bolt punches a hole in the tank. The fix was a plastic shield to protect the tank also the bolt was shortened and turned so the head faced the tank. Don

RE: Clogged EGR Valve at 19k miles

And they all have the same EGR issues, even the Ford 6.7. It's not just a Ram Cummins problem. Don

RE: Trailer Life Article - 5.9 Cummins engine

Nope, 145K + with the anti-freeze and all hoses changed two years ago. Had the dealer check it each year after the five year time limit and each time they told me see you in a year. My Dad has a 1991 that has never had the anti-freeze changed with no signs of any issues, other than the headliner dropping. Dad is from the ole school, if it's not broke, don't mess with it. I'm the polar opposite. Can you link the story, I love a good fiction story form time to time. :B Don

RE: Clogged EGR Valve at 19k miles

Can't do that. At least on the 2007 Rams there is a flaw in the transmission programming that has never been resolved. Turning the EB on in town often causes the tranny to slam hard when slowing from around 35mph. Not just a little harsh...it slams!! This has been reported by numerous people. Something in shift points is changed when using the EB and/or T/H mode. I can only use either when on the highway. I talked to one of the quality engineers (powertrain) and he said there are several flashes that will take care of this. The correct flash is determined by your VIN. Take it to your dealer and ask them to check to see if your truck has an update to take care of your problem. Don

RE: Out with the old.....

Congrats... I'm surprised you were able to get the aisin tranny. A quick check of the major truck dealers in my are shows 8 trucks with the 850 torque Asian trans. There is not any issues getting a truck with the Asian 6 speed. Don

RE: Clogged EGR Valve at 19k miles

Yep at the price of their fuel filters ($165 installed) they should have a whole lot of confidence I would think! That thing is as big as the one I have on my Ram. Her S-80 has the dreaded surging idle. So now that it's warm again I'm going to have to pull the TB and clean it. It's about an hour job to do but the stealer told her that it would need to be replaced and quoted her over $1,300 to do it! Have to say after buying it for her I would NEVER own another Volvo ever again. These things have the poorest quality I have ever seen. I would get her a Kea before I would buy anther Volvo. Don

RE: Clogged EGR Valve at 19k miles

John my DD has a Volvo S-80 and in the owners manual it says to use a good fuel system cleaner with every tank of fuel. Cummins "does not recommend" using any fuel additives but if you want to they are OK with it. As far as idling a diesel cold. There is nothing wrong with doing that and in fact it is recommended as long as you kick the idle up to at least 1000 RPM. My Ram (and yours) also has a fast idle feature to do just that. You turn on the cruise, hit set and the idle bumps up to 1000 RPM. You can push the + or resume button five times to bump it up to 1500 by 100 RPM increments. You should never let a diesel set and idle under 1000 RPM's for any extended time as unburnt fuel can and will end up in the crank case and dilute the oil, no mater what the outside temperature is.

RE: 2014 Ram Ecodiesel

Where are you finding the payload capacities for the ecodiesel engine? They aren't included on the pages I found at the Ram trucks web site. Yes they are, I posted a link and directions on how to find them. Find my post then click it go to t by e bottom of the page and click on load more results and you will find them. Don

RE: Diff. lock-Because I've never seen it, it doesn't exist

A true "locking Dif" is not a good thing to have for a daily driver. If you lock or flip that switch on dry pavement you are going to end up with a very expensive repair bill on your hands. Read your owners manual before you try it out! BTW Ram and Jeeps also can be ordered with a "locking Dif" they are on the Power Wagon and can be ordered on most Jeeps. But again they are not a good idea for the average driver. When I was driving truck we had a driver that flipped the "LOCK REAR DIF" on the tractor backing into a loading dock and forgot to unlock it. Cost him his job and the company a very large repair bill! Note, there was snow in the parking lot and he was having trouble backing onto the dock so he locked the dif. When he got back out onto the road and dry pavement it was game over. Tow bill and replacement rear dif cost the company over $3,000 or so they said. Don

RE: GM suspends two engineers in disciplinary action

It's a little hard to blame this on the Government since the problem started in the early 2000s well before GM became Government Motors. However, the unions are still owners, as far as I know, and they were there through the whole thing. While some engineers may have tried to cover it up, the worker bees are the ones who installed the product, albeit at the direction of the engineers eventually. Nothing good is going to come of this for GM but I'll bet they get through it just as Toyota has. Are you freaking kidding me! You want to try and push the blame on to the line workers and the UAW? The UAW has no control over the day to day operations of GM! Do you work for the Government? Sounds like an A-Typical republican response, blame it on the Unions and the workers. Give me a break. Here is some reading for you. Time line for this. 2001: GM detects the defect during pre-production testing of the Saturn Ion. 2003: A service technician closes an inquiry into a stalling Saturn Ion after changing the key ring and noticing the problem was fixed. 2004: GM recognizes the defect again as the Chevrolet Cobalt replaces the Cavalier. click the link to read the full timeline. GM has been asked to issue a "Park it recall" but is refusing. DETROIT -- A federal judge in Texas today declined to issue an emergency order forcing General Motors to tell owners of 2.6 million recalled cars to stop driving them immediately. A ruling on the matter could come next week instead. GM told the court that it has conducted more than 80 tests showing that the cars it is recalling for faulty ignition switches are still safe to drive, so long as nothing else is attached to the ignition key. GM CEO Mary Barra told a Senate subcommittee this week that she would allow her teenage son to drive one of the cars before it is repaired. LINK
