RE: Ram 2019 3500 diesel

I’m looking at this left over and asking people’s opinion . I’ve been a GM guy so not to fimiliar with ram One huge reason not to buy the Ram, Bosch CP4 fuel system. GM dropped that system in 2017, Ford will have a new fuel system for 2020.

RE: 2020 Chevy HD 1k mile MPG

The other impressive part of the MPG on this video is the fact that there is about a 2000ft difference in elevation between Redmond OR and Loveland CO. Obviously ups and downs in between but overall it is an uphill drive. It will be interesting to find out if the 24 mpg is doable on some of our mountain highways where the speed limit is 55-65.

RE: Current GM / Chevy Reliability

I'd get a Tundra in a second if they made one that had the capabilities I'm looking for. For the current / recent GM diesel owners....how much trouble have you had with various electronics (Mass Air Sensor, O2 sensor, xmission range sensor, etc) on your vehicles? That's the kind of stuff that is just going bad in waves on my current truck. All of my Dmax trucks have been pretty much trouble free. My 03 needed a water pump, flasher module and blower fan resister at 11 years old and 150k miles. The last two have been completely trouble free 2012 and now 2018... I really love the L5P! I personally wouldn’t buy a diesel with that CP4 hpfp. It was always in the back of my mind when or if it was going to go boom... only reason I traded my 2012 for the 2018, glad I did.

RE: 2020 GMC

Well maybe the truck builders are finally listening to the RV crowd for a change: Just got a brochure on the 2020 GMC HD trucks. 1. They have finally made the bed rails lower 2. They have a bed camera to see your 5th wheel hitch. 3. 10 speed Allison 4. All types of options for camera views with trailer I know, it all costs money but at least it is avaliable. I may be in the market for a new one. Yes. I was happy to see that they lowered the bed rails too, until I looked over the specs. They only came down .100" from the previous model.

RE: 2020 GMC

My dissapointment is their failure to offer adaptive cruise. I have grown to really appreciate its function while towing in heavy traffic. They are upping the bar though in other features like their camera system. Just reading about it makes me think they will have it all over Ford in that department. They seem to have a lot of well thought out features, plus increased payloads in the 2500's and 3500 single rear wheel. The 2500 diesel now has an 11,350 GVWR which is one ton territory. My 2019 Ram 3500 has adaptive cruise and all the cameras as well And.... a Bosch CP4.;)

RE: New Ram/Cummins vs GM/Duramax on the IKE

Allison 10L100 1st- 4.54 x 3.42 x 910= 14,129 lb-ft 2nd- 2.86 x 3.42 x 910= 8,900 lb-ft 3rd- 2.06 x 3.42 x 910= 6,411 lb-ft 4th- 1.72 x 3.42 x 910= 5,353 lb-ft 5th- 1.48 x 3.42 x 910= 4,606 lb-ft 6th- 1.26 x 3.42 x 910= 3,921 lb-ft 7th- 1.00 x 3.42 x 910= 3,112 lb-ft 8th- .85 x 3.42 x 910= 2,645 lb-ft 9th- .68 x 3.42 x 910= 2,116 lb-ft 10th- .63 x 3.42 x 910= 1,960 lb-ft Thank you for the correct gear ratios. I have been trying to find them to no avail. I still seems that 1-6 are underdrive, 7th is direct, and 8-10 are overdrive. So even with a 3.42 rear end the GM was sending more torque to the wheels than a Ram 6-speed with a 4.10 rear end. You're welcome. I found them here-> 2020 Silverado press release

RE: New Ram/Cummins vs GM/Duramax on the IKE

Torque multiplication of the Ram Aisin 6-speed w/ 4.10 1st- 3.75 x 4.10 x 1,000 lb-ft= 11,275 lb-ft 2nd- 2.00 x 4.10 x 1,000 lb-ft= 8,200 lb-ft 3rd- 1.34 x 4.10 x 1,000 lb-ft= 5,494 lb-ft 4th- 1.00 x 4.10 x 1,000 lb-ft= 4,100 lb-ft 5th- .77 x 4.10 x 1,000 lb-ft= 3,157 lb-ft 6th- .63 x 4.10 x 1,000 lb-ft= 2.583 lb-ft 1-3rd are under-drive gears, 4th is direct, and 5-6 are overdrive. Torque multiplication of the GM Allison 10-speed w/3.42 1st- 4.70 x 3.42 x 910= 14,627 lb-ft 2nd- 2.99 x 3.42 x 910= 9,305 lb-ft 3rd- 2.15 x 3.42 x 910= 6,691 lb-ft 4th- 1.80 x 3.42 x 910= 5,602 lb-ft 5th- 1.52 x 3.42 x 910= 4,731 lb-ft 6th- 1.28 x 3.42 x 910= 3,984 lb-ft 7th- 1.00 x 3.42 x 910= 3,112 lb-ft 8th- .85 x 3.42 x 910= 2,645 lb-ft 9th- .69 x 3.42 x 910= 2,147 lb-ft 10th- .64 x 3.42 x 910= 1,992 lb-ft 1-6 are under-drive, 7th is direct, and 8-10 are overdrive. The Duramax was winning the torque to the wheels battle even with a 3.42 and it was also winning the horsepower battle according to the manufacturers ratings. Allison 10L100 1st- 4.54 x 3.42 x 910= 14,129 lb-ft 2nd- 2.86 x 3.42 x 910= 8,900 lb-ft 3rd- 2.06 x 3.42 x 910= 6,411 lb-ft 4th- 1.72 x 3.42 x 910= 5,353 lb-ft 5th- 1.48 x 3.42 x 910= 4,606 lb-ft 6th- 1.26 x 3.42 x 910= 3,921 lb-ft 7th- 1.00 x 3.42 x 910= 3,112 lb-ft 8th- .85 x 3.42 x 910= 2,645 lb-ft 9th- .68 x 3.42 x 910= 2,116 lb-ft 10th- .63 x 3.42 x 910= 1,960 lb-ft

RE: Ram CP3 swap

I have not heard of a newer Ford/Bosch issue. I realize you want this pump to be reliable because Cummins is now using it. You really have to give your head a shake, 2017 F250 CP4 BOOM!

RE: Should I have control arms replaced?

Wheel noise could be a bad wheel bearing. If the body isn't rusted out I would highly doubt the frame and control arms are an issue.

RE: 2015 GMC Sierra Denali-catastrophic fuel pump failure

Appreciate all the suspicious minds here...nothing fishy, nothing more to the story. Google BOSCH CP4 fuel pump and read the stories..... Not a maintenance issue....... Huntindog said it best, not a GM vs. FORD rivalry. As consumers at the mercy of these HUGE CORP, we are the ones who lose! Well aware of cp4 issues. The issue here is GM is telling you its not covered when its clearly printed in the warranty booklet they provided with the truck. You have 5 years or 100K miles coverage from GM on the complete Duramax diesel including fuel system... Post up your RO, I'd love to see why its not covered.

RE: 2015 GMC Sierra Denali-catastrophic fuel pump failure

Something smells fishy, perhaps we are not getting the whole story? I have never had any issues getting GM to warranty anything. They even replaced my buddies LB7 injectors after the special warranty period was up. Maybe someone didn't maintain the fuel filter? I would like to see a pic of the RO where it states not covered under warranty.

RE: 2015 GMC Sierra Denali-catastrophic fuel pump failure

Had a catastrophic fuel pump failure in our 2015 GMC Sierra Denali 2500HD Diesel......lost all power steering, brakes, etc. Dealer wants $12000 to repair! When the pump fails, metal shavings go thru entire fuel line, etc After researching online, GM knew about this (CP4 fuel pump) issue before we bought our new truck in 2015! We were lucky this happened at our seasonal campground & not while towing our 5th wheel in traffic. Posting this as a warning to all of you with a GM diesel 2011-2016 Your warning should not be limited to the 2011-16 Duramax. 2011-current Powerstroke diesel 2019 Ram with Cummins Jeep/Ram eco diesel Titan with Cummins Am I missing anything here? Looks like GM is the only one to drop the CP4 in the last three years...

RE: 2015 GMC Sierra Denali-catastrophic fuel pump failure

No extended warranty, not covered on drivetrain! Thanks for all the info....still trying to get them to pay for costs! Going to try the suggestion for "goodwill warranty" money as suggested Interesting that the fuel system is not covered under drivetrain warranty? It is, someone needs to read their warranty booklet a little closer and not listen to the dealer. My 2015 warranty booklet page 10 under 6.6 Duramax Diesel Engine Coverage: - Diesel Fuel Metering System injection pump, nozzles, high pressure lines, high pressure sealing devices.

RE: Mind teaser, tech issue..

Bad clusters can do some crazy things. A loose ground can drive you crazy. Anybody worked around the engine area recently besides you? X2, look for a bad ground.

RE: 2020 Powerstroke upgrades

New fuel system too, I guess Ford was tired of the issues with the Bosch CP4 as well.... As far as I am concerned, the engines in all three trucks are pretty much bullet proof, it's the fuel systems we all should be worried about.

RE: F150 Ecoboost vs F250 Diesel mileage

I just did a 800 mile trip through the rocky mountains hauling a similar load to yours (18' trailer, skid steer with implements. My SRW 3500 returned 12.2 mpg. I am with ShinerBock, 11-11.75 mpg
