      Hey Burla, I drive a 2014 Ram with the 5.7 and only 16K miles. I have the hemi tick (minor) and have been using Mobile 1, 5w20 with mopar filter 889. I change the oil and filter annually but that averages less than 3K miles between changes. Want to switch to Amsoil signature 5w30 and a synthetic filter. What filter do you recommend with part number. Am I on the right track?

      Hello Burla. I have a 2019 1500 w/hemi. It has 682 miles on it. Yes, 682 miles and ticks for 30 seconds anytime I don't start it for more than 36-48 hours. I saw a post with your name on it about perhaps overfilling the oil by 3/4 of a quart. Was this a suggestion that would apply to me and my truck. I couldn't tell / see the history of the post. Thank you in advance.

        So molybdenum is what oil industry uses for "dry starts". The only moly additive that is the same moly in engine oils that I know of is lubegard biotech. This in theory should boost your moly and cure this. What oil do you currently use?

        I used to have the exact same issue and on my last oil change I actually used an oil low in moly. Valvoline 0w40 European formula. I also used half can of MoS2 and 10 ounces of Lubegard biotech. With factory fill which was 0w40 pennzoil it would tick or clatter even after was semi warm or a short trip. Never heard a tick or clatter after usual of Lubegard biotech

      Hey i saw in a thread that you recommend Redline Oil to help with preventing Hemi tick. Is this an additive or a brand of oil? If its a brand what weight and synthetic or non? Thanks!

        Redline is a high additive high performance oil, so you want the high performance line. It has esters and PAO base oils and high doses of molybdenum and zddp. There is nothing on the shelf like this oil, motul is the closest thing. You want 5w30 and yes it is synthetic, but not like m1 it is real synthetic.

        Two things you can treat as possible solutions and usual suspects is pcv valve and piston rings. I'd definitely get a new pcv valve asap and run redline si-1 for two tanks with 91 octane. Another thing to try is a sea foam treatment through the vac lines, see chris fix youtubes. This will help carbon on piston rings, this plus new pcv valve gives you a real chance. I like Pennzoil HM oil 5w30.

      Burla, I want to thank you for all your posts over the years and replies to my recent questions. I decided to go with PUP 5W30 and a purolator boss filter I have been running the last two oil changes. I think it's just valvetrain noise for now. Going to try adding the extra 1/2 quart & see if that helps. If not, I will try Lubeguard Biotech. If that doesn't work, then I will try the Redline. Anyway thanks again!!

      Burla, I have a 16 stinger yellow sport (crew cab) 5.7 ... I am interested in a bumper like the one you have in your avator / member pic.
      I would like a winch on mine as well. I wanted to ask what your solution was to the excess well well that is exposed once you remove the bumper - and do you have any advice on a skid plate or skid plate package for the sport 4x4's ?

        I can't remember what I used to cut the fender, maybe tin snips, but that was simple. I would have to say I feel the fab fours full wrap is a bit heavy for our front suspensions, If I was going to do it over I'd look for something else.

        awesome bro, yes uoa's on amsoil transmission fluid are the best out there, simply does NOT loose viscosity.

      Hello,
      I'm new to the forum. I am moving from CT to FL and I'm debating on selling my Hemi. I've owned it since 2007, she has 206k miles, some rust on the drivers side fender. Everything underneath has been replaced from the Tranny to the rear end, lifetime warranty. She's all set engine wise and brought up date. What should be my asking price and/or settling price? Thank you for time :)

        I would need more info, like year of hemi, is it a 1500? Does that lifetime warranty transfer? Most likely somewhere between 5 and 10k dollars. Just check Craigs list when and where you sell it. If I was you, I would sell it in CT because you will get a better price, especially if it is a 4x4.

      Hey Burla,

      Running 5w20 PUP and Wix sp filter . No issues. Truck Hemi at 24k. Keep it going or switch to redline and RP synthetic filter?
      Any opinions on tonneaus ? Sick of backflip bs and poor customer service.
      Thanks for all your posts and great knowledge-

        You are in warranty and if it isn't broke so maybe not fix it. 5w30 PUP is very close in viscosity and except for the invoice there is no way to do an analysis and tell them apart at the end of a run. Go to parts store buy a couple oil changes worth, copy invoice, and swap weight.

        I am a dirty monkey, so I'm not a big tonneaus guy, the only one I'd mess with is a linex'd diamond back.

      Burla: OK, where do you get the MD sealing tape that you so kindly showed me in your reply to my thread I posted ? So far ( knock on wood ) I have NO interior damage or water marks in/on my headliner. Maybe because I got right on drying up the seat & headliner as soon as I noticed it & duck-taped the hell outta EVERYTHING on the roof & 3rd brake light. Thanx. Tom Slick
