    Oil Filter and Oil Shortage?

    A service manager friend of a large independent shop gave me the heads up that they were having issues ordering oil filters (out of stock). I read on another forum that oil producers are having issues with the additives package supply chain. One of the posters stated that their local Walmart was...

    Free OEM front bumper 2016 2500 Laramie Hemi (sensor holes)

    Thought I would give my HD brethren first shot at this. Two caveats: 1. It’s located in Houston so local pick up only. I will not ship this (it’s huge - that’s what she said). 2. Minor damage = lower lip was pushed in an inch during a carwash tunnel incident. No damage to chrome however. You...

    Black oil after 5,000 miles

    2016 2500 5.7 with 110,000 miles. Engine sounds great; no tick (even cold starts). New PCV valve, oil catch can and I keep a close eye on the air filter. I run either PUP or RGT on 5K oil change interval. Experimented with OEM, WIX XP, Bosch, Fram Ultra, Mobil 1, Purolator Boss filters. Oil...

    6.4 exhaust manifold project

    Buckeye, You are doing the right thing by taking it to a shop. If you accidently drill through the heads then you have a bigger / more expensive mess on your hands! Hope you get the truck back on the road. Keep us updated.

    6.4 exhaust manifold project

    Sorry for all of your troubles. I replaced mine at 106,000 miles. I think they broke at 95K. Passenger side was bad; driver side came out no problem. Didn’t trust my skills so took it to a shop. Used aftermarket studs / bolts and Mahle head gaskets. Will see how long this set up lasts.

    New spark plugs @ 100,000?

    2016 2500 5.7 plugs at 106K: The tech said the plugs looked pretty good due to quality fuel. I fill up at Costco all the time and switch between premium and regular.
