RE: Ford recall

Troy the 2012 Charger I drove for two weeks had the T shifter and I didn't have any issues with it. The funny part about this is the fact that Audi uses the same type shifter and their customers don't seem to have a problem. Must be Audi customers are smarter and understand how to read a display. My wife should sue FCA she got out of her 300 left it in drive and the car ran into the garage door. Thank goodness my truck was inside and the door hit the hitch and stopped the car. BTW her 300 has the rotary knob and she takes full responsibility for NOT shifting the car into PARK! I will say it does take some getting use to not having a shifter but the learning curve for semi intelligent people is very short! :W Don

RE: ram 2015 rear cargo camera

Which radio do you have? If it is the 8.4 press the settings soft key on the screen and you will find the camera settings there. You can also look in the owners manual and it will give you step by step directions on how to set change the camera settings. You can also go here and find information about it. http://www.driveuconnect.com/ Don

RE: Ford recall

That dial selector for the transmission was a bad idea from the start. But, give an idiot a rubber mallet, and I bet he'd find a way to break and anvil. Too bad it is not the dial selector being recalled. It is the ZF T selector, some people are not smart enough to look at the read out on the dash to see what gear they are or are not in. It's much earlier nowadays to blame the manufacturers for your own actions then it is to take responsibility for them. But it does give the weak minded people something to talk about. Oh BTW Nutz how many vehicles has GM recalled? Oups I didn't go there did I? LMAO. Don The affected vehicles are the 300, Charger, Durango and Grand Cherokee all with the ZF 8 speed and ZF T handle floor shifter.

RE: 2017 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel HD

Yep 6300# +/- 200# for fuel and four adults and that little 3.0 diesel will still run down the highway at 70 in OD. The only time I use the TOW/HAUL mode is in the city. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/20151111_150325_zps9zuq4khw.jpg height=350 width=650 Shiner you may want to look up your information on the baby Dmax! It's a 2.8L not a 4.0! That would be why it won't be in their 1500 trucks. They are getting a 4.5 diesel in the 1500 2017 or 2018. GM’s Steve Kiefer, vice president of global powertrain, recently told Automotive News they are looking at bringing a diesel to the market. With their stable of diesel engines and a 4.5L V8 diesel already designed, GM could answer the growing MPG race quickly in their light-duty Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups. “We are looking closely at diesel entrees in that segment,” Kiefer said. “In fact, I heard the term ‘dust off’ that 4 1/2-liter at one point. That is certainly one of the options. Clearly, we have a portfolio of diesel engines.” A 4.5L Duramax V8 diesel was developed before the company went into bankruptcy in 2009 and was subsequently shelved. Dusting it off and adding some modern improvements like reducing displacement and adopting new friction-reduction technologies. But it’s been so long, we wonder if perhaps the upcoming 2.8L Duramax could serve as a possible replacement. Read more:LINK I bet they wait until they (Ford/GM) work the bugs out of their ten speed and it drops to a 4.0l not a 4.5L. The only reason to go diesel in a 1500 is for the upcoming EPA mandated truck fuel mileage increase. I look for ram to up the 3.0L to a 3.5L to remain competitive. But with larger displacement means less fuel mileage so it's a dual edge sword. Don

RE: 2017 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel HD

That's the part people on here don't get. I have been saying for years that Ram does not play the in-between game that Ford and GM play. Unfortunately for Ram there are people that don't understand that they are buying a half ton on steroids but paying for a 250/2500 weakling. If you have to add HD payload and HD tow packages to get you wannabe 250/2500 then buy the correct tool for the job. You will be a lot happier in the long run trust me. Don

RE: 2017 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel HD

I think it would also depend on agility. I would be OK with the bumper step, but I wouldn't want my father trying it. Looks like a broken ankle or a fall waiting to happen for a guy in his 70's. He would be far more secure and comfortable using the tailgate step. Doesn't Ford have a patent on the tailgate step?, and I doubt GM or Fiat want to pay for license, which means they'll have to change it enough to avoid patent infringement. Does ram offer any type of tailgate step today? I loved the tailgate step I had in my 2010 F-150. The newer one is the bee's knees, since the pole is hidden with the actual step. As for RAM, no. But I just went out and bought an amp step for the back which works pretty well and I like over GM's solution (which still has the step fairly high. https://c1.rt-static.com/images/products/amp-research-bedstep/thumbs-480x360/amp_research_bedstep_tailgate_step.jpg You cam get that same step under the Mopar brand but not on trucks the dual exhaust! :( Don

RE: Changed plugs on my V10

Every pluged I ever pulled at or near the 100K mark was just like the OP said, Gap was way over the limit and some the electrode was noting but a nub! I'm with Dodge Guy and would never go past 100K, I you can do it yourself and you can't afford to pay to get it done then maybe you have bought the wrong vehicle. Robertsunrus there is a little trick to getting to the back plugs, remove the inner wheel well and there they are. Same with a timing belt/chain water pump and everything else. Don

RE: Dennis Dillion Dodge

My dealer makes no money off the vehicles I buy but this is offset by providing him with F&F numbers so he can sell more vehicles. Don I guarantee your dealer still makes money when you buy vehicles from them. If not, they would already be out of business. Don't kid yourself. However, you are probably getting a better deal than many schmucks that walk into a dealer and don't negotiate well. Nope I can guarantee my dealer is only making the $800 FCA pays them to push the paper work. I work for FCA and we buy under the dealer invoice by 5-6%. The pricing is posted on the bottom of the "Dealers Invoice" along with the Friends & Family (1-1.5% under invoice pricing). This way a dealer can not pull a fast one. Don

RE: Dodge Diesel oil changed - color of new oil

I agree with the 3rd gen 2004.5 and up comments about soot. But draining your oil over night will not fix the problem and here is why. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/s-l1600_zpstwww3dnj.jpg height=500 width=500 Notice that large indent in the pan? There is no way you are ever going to get all of the oil out of that pan. Even if you let it sit for a week! I ran 25,000 mile oil changes in my 2004 Ram with filters ever 5,000 to 10,000 miles (according to how much towing I did) and always sent a sample to black stone at 10,000 miles. My reports always showed the oil could have gone past the 25,000 mile mark but I never did. I wish I could find the pics of the upper half of my engine during the valve adjustment. The guy at the Cummins shop could not believe my truck had 120K on it. He said it looked like it only had 25,000 miles. Don

RE: Dennis Dillion Dodge

Minnow not sure why a dealer would not want to at least come within a grand of what another dealer is selling for. Even an on-line dealer, they all buy at the same price. Selling more vehicles only increases you order allotment. However the big dealers can get away with selling at the Friends and Family pricing without needing an employee to get them a number. This only moves vehicles as the dealer only makes around $800.00 on the sale. The F&F and the E.P. pricing is under the dealer invoice so FCA pays them to push paper work. They make their money (the on-line stores) by selling the customer extended warranties, Vin itching (cost is less than $20.00) and parts and accessories at inflated prices. Than there are those fees that may or may not be legit. Bottom line if you are not being treated fairly at a dealership than find one that will treat you fairly. My dealer makes no money off the vehicles I buy but this is offset by providing him with F&F numbers so he can sell more vehicles. Don

RE: Dennis Dillion Dodge

Goducks good point, guess I've been spoiled having about thirty dealers within 30 miles of us. A few have closed, but for the most part there are at least there dealers of every manufacture here in the metro Toledo area. As for my dealer I stop in order what I want and when it comes in sign the papers and go. No BS no do you want this or that, heck this last truck I ended up ordering two trucks. When they came in, I picked the one I wanted and he put the other on the lot. He even gave a 3 year old Liberty off the used car lot to drive for 3 months since my 2004 sold so quick no charge. Don

RE: Dennis Dillion Dodge

Yep going to an out of town/state dealer and then finding out they were trying to pull a fast one, would make me find a good local dealer. Then what if you need to take it in for warranty work. Are they going to give you a car to drive or make you wait for the work while their loyal customers take priority? That deal may not turn out to be such a great deal after all. Buy local and support the people that support your home town. Don

RE: Dodge Diesel oil changed - color of new oil

The oil drain plug on these engines are indented so not all of the oil will drain out of the pan and this is what is discoloring the new oil. With 13 quarts is will not affect the new oil. Don

2017 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel HD

With Ford expected to add a diesel and ten-speed to their aluminum-bodied F-150s for 2017, Ram engineers are working hard — likely focusing on many different bottlenecks, rather than a single technology. When 2018 comes, there will also be a “commercial” version of the Ram 1500, with enhancements for heavy duty work cases. The chart below suggests that a Ram Commercial version of the 1500 will appear earlier, but that would likely show up separately if it were true. (The years appear to be calendar years, not model years.) There are also hints of the diesel gaining in towing capacity, possibly through gearing, calibration, and possibly upgraded internal parts upgrades could push it beyond 10,000 pounds (it’s currently rated at 9,200). It is unlikely that the eight speed will jump to ten any time soon. ZF’s chief executive already dismissed that, saying the rewards were lower than the costs — and this is coming from a company that supplies Rolls-Royce. Link Don

RE: F150 Ecoboost Reliability

OMG you guys are funny, the man asked for information from "actual owners" so I directed him to the correct forum where maybe he could get some true information without all the back and forth BS that happens here. If anyone cares to look at my very first post on this thread I never slammed the EB I answered a comment about Fords transmission castings and why they leak (any make for that matter) and even gave the EB some praise and made a comment about the fuel mileage and got slammed by the Blue Oval Mafia. So if you want a like children I'll play along. Here is my very first post and would have been the last if you guys had played nice :B That is do to porosity in the casting. Most likely your case was one from a cold die at start up after a long week end or shutdown like Christmas break. The other cause is poor ventilation in the die itself. That is what Ford gets for going with Ryobi Die Casting. As for the EB they have turned out to be very good engines, other than the poor fuel mileage over what Ford claimed they would make. You can have Eco or Boost but you can't have both! That would be why Ford is joining Ram and adding a diesel option to their F-150, fuel mileage nothing more nothing less. Don Spud1957, Yep the Ecodiesel had some issues with the 2014 trucks, some engines got out with improperly torqued #5 rods that has caused some engines to grenade leaving some customers on the side of the road. Not a good thing to happen and there have been some bought back mostly do to parts availability or lack there of. Most States have a 30 day limit that a vehicle can be in the shop (total over one year), after that it is classed as a lemon and has to be bought back. I had only heard of one 2015 with a blown engine but the owner has admitted to having double tunes and full deletes so that is on him. As for Tory's comment "Anyways it's interesting Don is keeping a close eye on this thread" Hard not to when you keep asking "BTW... Where's Don? (aka perrsburgdodgeboy). " Love ya Man Don
