    Molylube

    I used to use Liquimoly MoS2 but switched to Lubegard Biotech. Research Biotech on bobistheoilguy. Not snake oil.

    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

    Hemimann - bought the vehicle new; I was not vigilant about oil changes in the beginning and relied on the oil life monitor so the dealer fill semi-synthetic oil was changed every 8,000 miles. I started doing my own oil changes around 30K and have been changing every 5K intervals Fijicorey and...

    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.

    AVS bug deflector

    I thought the Steelcraft was the biggest bang for the buck: one piece 6 gauge steel for $759. The welds aren’t that pretty but it looks great from 5 ft.

    AVS bug deflector

    I assume it doesn’t do much for rock chips but I am getting desperate. I read it helps with the bugs. Maybe if I drive 100mph I can generate enough force to affect the trajectory of the rocks.

    AVS bug deflector

    My old AVS deflector gave up it ghost at 108,000 miles. The adhesive gave way and the damn thing was flapping in the wind like an injured seagull at highway speeds. I ordered another AVS (made in the USA). This one had a more aggressive design. My hope is that it would help prevent cracks on...

    2018 5.7 Tach fluctuating

    Had the same thing happen on my 2016 2500 5.7 except it was the speedometer fluttering when I did 70 -75mph. I wonder if this is related.
