RE: Common issues with Dodge 6.7L or Ford 6.7

Thank you all for the constructive posts. Just to clarify, this ISN'T a what truck is best kind of post. I'd simply like to know about the common issues to each model and what to watch for. And thank you all for telling me about this. So the 2013+ Cummins 6.7's went to a DEF system and that seems to be more reliable and get better mileage. Were the 2007-2012 problematic? 2008-2010 they all had emission related issues. 2011 MY forward is what you what to shop for. Even then Ram waited till 2013 to use DEF or SCR emissions. I've found a few 2011-2012 6.7 PSD's around me for a good price, but the mention of the high pressure pump issues spook me out a bit. Are the issues random? Yes pretty much a small percentage for Ford and GM. But the earlier 2011-2012 I would avoid as those seem to have a higher ratio fail rate than the newer MY's. Thanks again.

RE: 3rd gen Dodge exhaust brake with auto trans

I'm pretty sure the 06-07 trucks don't need anything else to keep the Converter locked. Different factory programming than 05 and older. Correct 06 was the first year.

RE: First trip and first major failure

Did it ever have a diesel additive added to your fuel? Most of the failures I've heard about on the Mafia forums they simple stop without sending metal through the entire system.

RE: Potential Thor Palazzo Purchase

Run, Forrest, Run.....it's a 2015 that means that it could have been sitting for 3 years... Or 14 months. I really don't think ANY manufacture produce vehicles 3 years predelivery. Although 2009 was lets say rather slow :W

RE: 2019 Cummins in Ram: 2 significant & simultaneous milestones

What's important is they're now built in the USA with the best medium duty engine/transmission to date. First off your PSD is made in Mexico and your best medium duty transmission is only claimed by YOU without a reliable link which you never have.

RE: Tire Valve Stem Extenders

I had Alcoa one my previous Ram that replaced the leaking cheap plastic ones. Worked for 10 years of my ownership. LINK

RE: 2016 vehicle quality ratings released

Why are all Fords, Chevy and GMC all grouped into one spot? Ram, jeep, Fiat and Chrysler are separated?

RE: Ford F250 6.2L V8

With 5th wheels the question generally not what it can pull, rather what can it hold weight wise on the rear axle. Known as "pin weight". A good ball park figure is 20% of trailer weight but it is getting larger the past few years with bigger fivers. Having said that I've seen much worst combinations all the time. You should be fine IMO at those posted weights.

RE: EVIC symbols? Bad fuel or coincidentally something else?

I would take it for a check up at the local Cummins or Ram dealer. Explain what happen. If that ever happens again park it and drain it don't drive it :W The delivery company has insurance for this kind of mistake by a driver. Then there is always the "sniff test" before you pump :B Good Luck If I have to go around sniffing nozzles at every gas station I'm going back to gas, LOL Your engine your money, but $10k, $15k or $20k whatever your engine costs a little whiff will spot gasoline every time. Guess I better not mention the "match test" :W Notice the winks and big smiles. Moral of story, another reason to buy new vehicles :P

RE: 2019 Cummins in Ram: 2 significant & simultaneous milestones

I bet they still have plans for that ISC 8.3 going into something down the road. I guess weight would be a issue tho.

RE: Is ram air suspension needed?

A general rule is the pin will be 20% of the total weight. 20% of 16k would be 3200 lbs on the pin. Although a SRW would most likely handle it nowadays I'd go with the DRW just for the stability in the mountain roads. YMMV

RE: engine brake while towing?

Oh no I've created a monster (or two!) That's okay, it's been rather slow this year. Guys needed some good keyboard drills anyway :W Just be glad you have a exhaust brake. They were not common at all about 10 years ago in pickups. I heard the other two camps talking about grade braking transmissions etc but I knew first hand my Ram had the best braking truck on the market. Forward ahead a decade they all have em now. Guess who had the "better idea" :B Anyway use it and enjoy the nice cool service brakes very little. OBTW sold the Ram with 120k miles with OEM brakes with about 50% towing 15k lbs in the Rocky Mountain states :B NEVER ride your service brakes down a grade like someone suggested. Hit em hard if needed, then let them cool just like trains.

RE: New Ram redesign

I took the Cummins 6.7 factory tour at the CMEP plant at Columbus, IN today. Word is that they will no longer build the 6.7 for Freightliner for the 2017 model year as they do now. It will be built at another plant, can't remember what one. Big news is they are working on the 2019 6.7 Cummins for the RAM trucks. The Columbus facility will only be building the 6.7 for the RAM at the Cummins Columbus Facility for 2017 and beyond. Soooo your saying the 6.7 will still be available for the lower end DP's ? There is a bunch of MH's using the 6.7 power plant mated to a Allison 2500 or 3000 lately.
