RE: Air Filters For Your Trucks

"Fleetgaurd oil filters are still made in the USA and I can try to get my Fleetgaurd rep from Cummins cooperate on this thread to prove it." Would you like to make a friendly wager??? I said "FleetGuard oil filters are not made in USA any longer so that is another reason I switched" I should have said 5.9/6.7 FleetGuard StrataPore oil filters are not made in USA any longer so that is another reason I switched. You made a blanket statement and so did I but you know what I was referring to. So please prove me wrong. So you are saying apples and oranges, I am talking quality here as to why I buy what I buy. Simply no comparison with the NAPA/WIX. You should know how important it is to have the BEST filtration for your fuel with the cost of injectors in our modern cummins trucks. HAPA Gold does NOT compare to StrataPore or NanoNet Fuel filtration plain and simple. The StrataPore for our trucks has been made in Mexico for at least a couple years now. Now have your friend tell you so and report back please. Nope, the media may be made elsewhere, but the rolls of media gets shipped to US to make the filters. No need to lecture me about filtration. As a person who worked in the filtration department at Cummins, I learned more in a year than you likely will in a lifetime. I know the importance of filtration, however, many place too much importance on things like branding and just reagitate their favorite brands marketing BS they were sold on. When it comes down to it, just changing your oil at a proper time is way more important than getting a filter that collects just a few microns more. You will likely never keep your truck long enough to even notice the difference it "might" make in longevity. There have been hundreds if not thousands of heavy duty Cummins diesels go millions of miles using plain old conventional media filters. In regards to medium duty engines like our Cummins, there have been many 5.9's and 6.7's that have gone over half a million miles on regular conventional "poor quality" media oil filters. Also, in regards to the fuel tilters you pictured above. Ironic how to "low quality" Napa filter looks exactly like the standard media Fleetgaurd filter in the video below of a Fleetgaurd rep presenting the two. Hmmm, I wonder where Napa gets that filter?

RE: Air Filters For Your Trucks

FleetGuard oil filters are not made in USA any longer so that is another reason I switched. Totally get there are only so many battery manufacturers. They do make batteries to the spec people want so batteries can be different. The MOPAR FleetGuard air filter has changed numbers and is improved to meet the 19 and newer specs. To give you a comparison of filters my friend had someone change his 13 RAM Fuel filters. When I went to remove the engine mounted filter I no way could pull it out by hand. I had to pry it out. The filters were NAPA and a side by side comparison can tell you the FleetGuard/MOPAR filter has more filter media. Things may be made by the same company but the quality can be different! No comparison between the filters. NAPA/WIX and MOPAR/FleetGuard There are two variants of that filter. The synthetic media version(FS53000) and the standard media version(FS43255). Both made and still offered by Fleetgaurd and is sold to various other filter manufacturers. Just like how FLeetgaurd offers a good and best version, so do many other filter suppliers like the standard Napa version versus the Napa Gold version. So what you are comparing in that picture is the synthetic version versus the standard version so it is not apples to apples when comparing each brands re-labeled product. Fleetgaurd oil filters are still made in the USA and I can try to get my Fleetgaurd rep from Cummins cooperate on this thread to prove it. I just had a meeting with him on next years pricing. They have had some supply chain issues forcing them to get filters from other factories for a short period of time or move product to different factories to meet demand, but they typically sell product in the same region they are produced. The N/A product comes from the N/A factories, the South American product comes from the South American factories, the Asian product comes from the Asian factories, and so on.

RE: Air Filters For Your Trucks

Nope just wanting the best product available. Example I used to run the FleetGuard Stratopore oil filters but since the AMZ/OIL-Donaldson are a better filter i have switched. Don't think you will get a better stock air filter than the FleetGuard/MOPAR. But what if the Fleetgaurd/Mopar is the exact same as the Wix coming out of the same factory? I bet if you did a little research, you will likely find that they are procured from the same company. Contrary to popular belief, filter manufacturers do not make every filter they sell. Many times they will buy from a competitor and relabel it if it is cheaper to do so or if the competitor still has a patent on the filter. Since Mopar does not make their own filters and Fleetguard doesn't make this filter, they are both likely getting this filter from the same company that Wix is also getting it from. It is like vehicle batteries. There are only three major battery manufacturers in the US. Clarios(used to be Johnson Controls), East Penn, and Exide. These three make all those battery brands people fight over claiming one is better than the other. The last time I visited Clarios(who makes our branded battery for my company), I saw interstate batteries come of the same line as Motorcraft batteries. The only difference is between each brands good/better/best batteries which may have a different virgin lead content. is bonded, and/or has some other accessory like a handle. However, all "good" batteries from every brand comes off the same base battery line, just like all of the "better" comes of the second tier assembly lines as well as the "best' coming off the tier 1 assembly line. In regards to Fleetgaurd's Stratopore, they actually sold this synthetic media to many other competitors when it first came out because these competitors did have the means to make it. This synthetic media was made specifically to Cummins' spec so even if Donaldson or Amzoil has a better filter media(which I don't think they do based on my data), it will not do anything to extend the life of your engine so it is basically pointless especially if it costs more. If you can show me where the Donaldson/Amzoil filter will extend the life of my engine X amount of miles more than the Fleetgaurd, then I might be intrigued.

RE: Air Filters For Your Trucks

To date I've only used Fleetguard filters except for the fuel filters, they've been Mopar. That said I use Fram filters in my wife's 10+ year old Pilot and that car has been stupid reliable since we bought it new. The Mopar fuel filter under the bed is made by Racor who also makes it for everyone else(even Fleetguard) since they still have a patent on it. The Mopar fuel filter in the engine is made by Fleetguard. So technically you are using all Fleetguard.

RE: Stupid TPMS!!

Same on my Ram. Only problem with it is I get the idiot light all winter because I drop my rear tires to around 60. Suffering a quarter inch idiot light and a warning ding at startup isn't the end of the world, though. Buy a Bluetooth OBD reader that will pair with your phone. I have OBDLINK MX, but most will work. Buy the AlfaOBD app on your phone. Get your 4 digit key code(the one for your key fobs) from the dealer parts/service department. You may have to show proof of ownership. Use AlfaOBD to set the TPMS to whatever threshold you want and then reset the body control module with the key code. No more light until you reach the threshold you set it at. You can also code in some other things on your truck or any Mopar vehicle as well depending on your make/model/year. I can PM you my personal phone number if you need help with the process.

RE: Air Filters For Your Trucks

No one here even mentions Wix. Why? Simply NOT the same quality as MOPAR or FleetGuard. I posted the one I run and I think by now you know I am a pick MoFo just order it and be happy!!! I will bet you money that all three are likely made at the same factory and/or use the exact same media just dyed a different color. In fact, Mopar doesn't even make their own filters and contract it out to other filter manufacturers like Wix, Fleetgaurd or Purolator depending on who has the lowest bid for that particular filter. This happens all the time in the filter industry especially when it cost less money to buy and re-label a filter from another company than to create all new factory lines and machines on a low margin item.

RE: Air Filters For Your Trucks

No one here even mentions Wix. Why? There are a lot of reasons and most of them have to do with people going with what makes them feel better. That is the reason why some buy OE or a certain brand over anything else even though they have no data to support that using anything else will decrease how many miles their engine will last versus the OE. Does the WIX let more contaminants in? Maybe, maybe not. If it does allow more contaminants, is it within spec to were it will not decrease the life of components or the engine? If so, then what's wrong with using it? If one can show me that filter A will decrease the life on an engine over filter B(not just let more contaminants past) then I would be more inclined to change my mind. As with most things, a topic like this has more to do with subjective feelings, here say, or "that is what my daddy used" rather than actual data, testing, or real world experience of running multiple type of filters in a controlled environment. If someone only uses one brand all their life, then how do they know if something else is not just as good if not better?

RE: Air Filters For Your Trucks

I can’t remember the last time I changed an air filter on a pick up. If the air restriction indicator were to ever get close to red I’d take a look at the filter and depending on what it’s plugged with I might consider lightly blowing the filter out with compressed air and throwing it back in again. I believe a dirty filter does a better job of filtering than a new one. This is correct. A dirty filter actually does a better job at catching contaminants than a clean one. It just has less flow than a clean one.

RE: Air Filters For Your Trucks

K&N is a bad choice be it gaz or deezal! As noted, it not bad at filtering. It's the oils that get on the sensors after it. Like you MAF, manifold pressure sensor etc. That's the issues you will have. Especially if you over oil the filter. Better to use best quality paper AF you can get ahold of. Marty True story, my MAF got oil on it and sent a code on my LB7 years ago. Most codes were not due to oil on the sensor. It was from the sensor being out of range. Most sensors back in those days were narrow band sensors meaning they only read a narrow range and anything out of that range(like more air) threw a code because it would mean that the truck had to guess on how much fuel to add. You do not have the same issue with todays wide band sensors that have much larger ranges. If auto manufacturers were so worried about oil in MAF or MAP sensors, then they would not sometimes put them after the oil dump for the positive crank case ventilation or the EGR valve which introduces spend exhaust gas. I can guarantee that these two things would put these sensors through more oil and contamination than an oil bathed filter would. This was my MAP sensor on my BMW diesel car. It was located in the intake after the EGR and oil dump, and all that black oily soot on my fingers came from the sensor. Nothing wrong with it. I just cleaned it and put it back. https://i.postimg.cc/7ZqsnhWC/20190427-111114.jpg height=600 width=350

RE: Air Filters For Your Trucks

Well that is a predicament.... Do you trust the maker of your truck.... Mopar -OR- The maker of your engine.... Cummins Filtration(Fleetguard) On another note, being that we are very large Cummins and Cummins Filtration(Fleetguard) dealers and purchased hundreds of millions from both each year. We just received notification that Cummins Filtration(Fleetgaurd) will soon be separating from Cummins after over 70 years of being apart of Cummins. Of course they will still be very involved with each other, but Cummins Filtration(Fleetguard) probably needs to do this to be a larger player in the aftermarket filter industry. As far as what I use. I have had an AFE Momentum intake with a ProGuard 7 filter in my 2014 Cummins for well over 100k now. I have used similar oil bath filters on several past diesels that went for hundreds of thousands of miles without a turbo issue so I am not sure where some people are getting that they will ruin an engine. Not sure if their response comes from first hand experience or second hand here say.

RE: Ultimate payload monster?

I understand what you are saying. I have owned and worked trucks most of my life. But I have only bought 2 half ton pickups and 1 F 350 new. (And the 350 was at a real deep discount because the paint was damaged when the dealership burned) I bought 3 Macks for a job. 16&44s, GVWR 50. But all hauling was off-road, or on closed hiways. I licensed them 24,000, and if they had to be moved, drove myself, because the "drivers" I put in them did not have CDL. (They made good money for part time work) But no matter what plate I put on them, the GVWR did not change. At the same time I was running 3 Fords, where I had bought single axle tractors, changed front axles, cut and spliced the frames to make long enough for bed, and 44,000 rears. I used cab and engine from the newer trucks, but can not change the 80,000 GCVWR on ID plate. But I was still legal, and the state weight watcher would not even pull out the scales when GCVWR was around 110,000 You can only re-rate the GVWR by the manufacturer at the time of a new vehicle purchase or by an "upfitter" who is finishing up the build on a cab and chassis truck. Outside of this, it is very hard to change the manufacturers GVWR especially if it is used. Here is a good article explaining it further. As stated, down-rating a truck is harder than up-rating one in many cases because vehicles below certain GVWR's have to abide my certain emissions, CAFE, and other federal mandates like braking distance which higher GVWR trucks may not have to abide by. However, higher GVWR trucks have to abide by added regulations on the back end. Re-rating GVWR: Why and How it's Done

RE: Ultimate payload monster?

"Trucks have outgrown these classifications and limitations yet the manufacturers ratings are restricted by them regardless if the trucks can actually carry more weight." EXACTLY!!! Or have the manufactures decided to badge their trucks lower than what they should so they make the ads look better? And with the weight of all the comforts pickups did not have when most where used to work, need the extra GVWR to haul the same amount? All the F350s I had GVWR was 10,000. But both Fords that had "superduty" badge had 850 in VIN. We de-rate GVWR's in the medium/heavy-duty industry I have worked in for decades all the time. Many of our customers will de-rate their trucks GVWR to keep from having to pay added taxes and registration. For example, I had a mining customer that mainly hauled heavy in the mines, not on the roads. While he needed capability off road, he did not need it on road when transferring the truck between mines. So bought a class 8 truck and de-rated it to a lower GVWR to save money. It is completely legit and happens a lot. Another example is many oil field trucks that are speced out with heavier duty axles to handle the abuse of lease roads, but have a de-rated GVWR since they don't tow enough to warrant the higher GVWR on road. Same goes for many of our medium duty fleets at our nine Ford dealerships. There are certain rules that trucks over 10k GVWR have to follow that trucks under 10k don't due to how the laws were written and how outdated they are versus the capabilities of todays trucks. Many of those who wrote these laws didn't foresee trucks being as capable as they are today and there has been no effort to change these laws by the states because it is a revenue stream. Take the 26k combined GVWR law and needing a CDL. If a fleet is towing with an F350 with a GVWR of 11.5k and the trailers GVWR is over 14.5k (11.5 + 14.5 = 26k) then the commercial driver needs a certain CDL in most states and added regulations are placed upon the driver as well. Even if he is only towing 10k in this instance, the trailer's GVWR and the truck's GVWR puts him at 26k. However, if you de-rated the F350 (which Ford has an option for) to 10k or used a 2500 with a GVWR of 10k, then no CDL or added regulations is needed due to these same laws not applying to 10k and under trucks. This is why I said in my earlier post that it would be suicide for a truck manufacturer to stop offering trucks under 10k GVWR because fleets would stop buying them. The only one's who really bicker about these weights and think the 10k is actually limit of a 2500 are recreational towers, not fleets who do it professionally.

RE: Ultimate payload monster?

The vehicle classification system has not changed in decades while the vehicles within those classes have. Trucks have outgrown these classifications and limitations yet the manufacturers ratings are restricted by them regardless if the trucks can actually carry more weight. What we call a SRW 350/3500 used to be a class 2b vehicles with a GVWR of under 10k. It would be suicide for vehicle manufacturers to stop making trucks with a GVWR of under 10k due to all of the old laws and regulations that go in affect once you go over 10k. I think people mistakenly believe that the number in side of the door will tell you what class it is in. This is false. Today, 150/1500 trucks are class 2a, not class 1. Class 250/2500 trucks are in 2b and in class 3 now. You can have a 350/3500 truck de-rated to a class 2b with a GVWR of 10k. A F450 is in class 3, and even some F750's are in class 8. The numbers are just a name of the model and the limitations of vehicles in certain classes has more to do with outdated laws than actual safe carrying ability. And no, the manufacturers GVWR rating is NOT enforced by the law. Only the registered GVWR and road axle limits are enforced by law.

RE: 1/2 ton towing a 5th wheel

FYI, the sticker on the door jamb is as useless as tits on a bull if you replaced your stock tires/rims with ones that have a lower rating. It also goes out the door if replaced any suspension components with a lift. Case in point, my nephew replaced his stock rims and tires on his 3500 with 35x12.5x20 BFG T/A KO2's which has a max rating of 3,195 lbs. The 6,390 lb combined rating of the new tires had a lower rating than his stock axle rating of 7,000 lbs which effectively lowered his GAWR making the number on the door sticker worthless. It actually put him below the rear GAWR of my 2500 which is 6,500 lbs.

RE: Speed limits

From what I understand going over the speed limit legally requires the use of emergency lights except in specific instances. Those instances require the police to have a judge approved warrant with the time and route on it. Nobody, including police, should be expected to break the law intentionally. If the law is unreasonable the law should be fixed, not ignored. Loose enforcement of the law leads to subjective and selective enforcement that is too often corrupt or can give the appearance of being corrupt. More than ever we need police to avoid the appearance of being corrupt. Just think how much violence could have been avoided in the past year if police had watched their appearance more closely. I grew up in Huntsville, Alabama and remember when their police department sought certification about 35 years ago. The first thing that they had to do was give up all official policies that were illegal. Can you imagine what would happen to a company that had policies that required illegal behavior? And think about how it undermines the very authority that the police represent. I am strongly in favor of law and order. But it should be reasonable and clear and it must apply to EVERYONE equally. And that includes judges, other police and especially lawmakers. Actually, since those people are the ones responsible for the laws they may deserve an extra dose of enforcement instead of the total immunity that many are privileged with now. I understand that being a law officer is a tough job and that many work too many hours. Some of that needs to corrected but keeping a clean image would take away a lot of the disrespect that they suffer from now. I am not aware of a federal law stating that lights and sirens must be used. I know that Texas law does allow police officers and other first responders to exceed the speed limit without lights if..... "Speed Restrictions Sec. 545.365. Speed Limit Exception for Emergencies; Municipal Regulation (a) The regulation of the speed of a vehicle under this subchapter does not apply to: (1) an authorized emergency vehicle responding to a call; (2) a police patrol; or (3) a physician or ambulance responding to an emergency call. (b) A municipality by ordinance may regulate the speed of: (1) an ambulance; (2) an emergency medical services vehicle; or (3) an authorized vehicle operated by a blood or tissue bank." As stated, a police patrol is exempt from these laws. Other state's laws may be different as well as local city/county laws. I know most people assume they lights are required, but as with many other things like people assuming that you can get ticketed for going over the manufacturers GVWR, it is just an assumption, not reality. As I said before, it is not black and white as many assume it is. There are many state and local laws that allow them to speed without lights in certain situations and areas so technically they are not breaking the law when used in this manner. Having these laws apply to a regular citizen that does not do the same type of work is just asinine.

RE: Speed limits

I understand every cop can justify breaking the traffic laws to do his job better, but where do you draw the line? If a salesman runs a few over, maybe he can make a extra demo today. What is his limit? If I crowd the traffic lights, maybe I can dump 6 loads today instead of 5. Should I get a pass for that red? Something that is overlooked is while your drunk, me or my salesman also face civil penalty for our actions. Our insurance will pay to the limit, then it is on us to pay. Until laws change, the cop has no money on the table. This is why it isn't just black and white. There are many grey areas where one person's opinion will say that they shouldn't and another's says it is warranted. I feel that one can't just say that no cop should go over the speed limit without their lights, period. These people are either very ignorant to the situations of what an officer faces day in and day out. That is like me telling someone else how to do their job even though I do not fully understand all aspects of their job. Then you have to ask who should be in charge of drawing that line and what politics, knowledge, and/or biases are driving their perception. Many people here said they should not do it period, but most do not have much knowledge about the job. It is a slippery slope and there are I feel many more important things that should be addressed first because they are bigger problems than a cop doing 10 over. Now keep in mind that I agree that there are bad cops that do break the law because they feel that they can. However, these types of officers are generally hated by the other cops as well because it gives them a bad name. It is extremely hard to get rid of these types of officers in large metro areas with unions. While the unions do a go job at protecting good cops, their rules and regulations that the departments have to follow also protect a percentage of bad cops. So it is one of those cases that in order to have the good, then you have to understand that it will also come with a percentage of bad as with most things. Expecting 100% good is just an unrealistic expectation.

RE: Speed limits

I have no problems with a cop doing 10 over without his lights on. There are a lot of times where they need to get somewhere in a hurry, but it does not constitute the use of emergency lights. Many people just assume that they only do it because they can, when in fact there are many instances where it is needed. A friend of mine who was a Sheriff assigned to graveyard shift DUI had to this all the time. It is a lot harder to see if someone is swerving and drunk looking from the side of the road so he had to catch people while he was driving. He would come up to a batch of cars and check their driving. If they were not swerving or acting erratically then he would speed up(many times over the speed limit to catch up) and go to the next batch of cars. He got many drunk drivers off the road doing this versus those who waited on the side of the road just checking radar. He also did this when he caught a DUI suspect and they resisted a breathalyzer. Case in point was one accident wear a drunk driver killed four members of a family of five. Only the young daughter remained alive and in critical condition. The drunk driver refused a breathalyzer so my friend had to get a warrant for his blood to be drawn at the nearest hospital. Every second counts and the longer you wait the lower his blood alcohol level gets. It is imperative that he got there fast as possible so the @$$hole does not get off from killing a family, but it does not constitute emergency lights. Then there is my dad who was a police officer for over 30 years before he retired several years ago. When he was a sergeant, he had to stay readily available to his officers when they needed him which were anywhere between 3-9 officers on a shift. When he got a call where one of his deputies needed his assistance, then he had to rush over there so they can get their problem solved and move on to the next task. Many times he got multiple calls from different deputies. He would use his lights when it was a true emergency, but many times the call did not warrant emergency lights yet he still needed to get their ASAP. Being short handed as he was, the longer the deputies were on a call, the less deputies he had available if an emergency did pop up. So no, I don't care if they go over the speed limit without their lights because I know there are many instances that warrant it. These are just a few off the top of my head.

RE: 2013 Ram 6.7 With Some Motor Issues

One has to ask why Cummins/Holset can't fix this problem. This problem has been going on since the 6.7 was introduced. They did come out with an updated actuator, but heat is the major culprit here. Back in 2007 when they came out with the 6.7L, it actually met the 2010+ emissions while the DMAX and PSD only met 2007. They did this so they did not have to spend money engineering the engine again to meet another round of emissions regulations. However, this caused a lot of issues with carbon build-up in EGR valves and the turbo because these systems were basically doing what the EGR and SCR do today. This also caused a lot of heat which burns up the Cummins electronic actuator. The reason why they went with an electronic unit was that they needed to meet the aforementioned 2010+ emissions without an SCR and they needed better control of the air pulling through the EGR and heavy use of the EGR created more soot. Ford and GM did not use a fully electronic actuator until recently. GM with the L5P and Ford with the 2021 PSD so time will tell if they too have the same issues once the trucks get more miles on them. Ford also had turbo/heat issues with the 2011-2014 trucks, but it was not related to the VG actuator.

RE: 2013 Ram 6.7 With Some Motor Issues

Did the dealer say their actuator was a reman? Or is that supposition? Seems strange dealer would be putting reman parts in, but who knows. If it come with a warranty, it maybe the best option on all accounts. This stuff is so frustrating I’m sure. Cummins has reman. We sell it all of the time and the part numbers generally end in RX. They also have new parts but have a core attached to them with parts numbers ending in NX. The reason for a new part having a core is either because they don't want that part to get into the market so others can make reman versions or they plan to make reman versions later on once there are enough of them out.

RE: 2013 Ram 6.7 With Some Motor Issues

Sadly, it's usually the turbo's actuator that causes that sort of thing. Yep, and that is the reason I replaced mine with a fixed geometry turbo. Turbo and high flow pulse manifold only cost $1600 and I did it in one weekend. SweetLou, the dealer might tell you that you have to replace the whole turbo, but you can just replace the actuator and have it calibrated. OE is about the only way to go on the actuator. If you replace both then I would go with an aftermarket turbo like the BD Screamer or Calibrated Power Solutions Stealth turbo. They have slightly larger blade profiles and larger housings that have benefits like lower EGT's even if you don't tune your engine for the added potential. They will cost a few hundred dollars more than a new OE turbo. It is odd that you did not see a check engine light because a faulty actuator will generally throw one. That is the reason why I thought it might have been fuel since there was no CEL mentioned.
