    Crappy glued brake pads

    Another pair of poorly glued ebrake pads. Seems real common on these 4th gen rams. My 15 ram only has 50000km on it and I noticed it would occasionally lock up when reversing, someone on this site suggested this may be because of shoe material separation and I believe they were right. Not that I...

    Camshaft replacement Loftmarte 53021726AE

    Looking at a low budget camshaft change out on a 14 1500 with 200000 miles on it. I see exhaust valve pushrod has about 0.150 play on it between push rod and rocker arm. I checked Amazon and they are showing a complete cam/lifted kit, gaskets etc for about $650.00 seems reasonable but open to...

    Gauge cluster screen replacement.

    Just wondering if someone may know where to get these little replacement screens? This one is from my 2014 SXT. I am sure other years would fit. This is the panel in the middle of the gauge cluster. Rick

    New to me, 2015 RAM 1500 Short Box Regular cab 4X4. Pitfalls and Joys

    Oil Change frequency

    Curious as heck. I have a 2015 Reg cab short box. I changed the oil at 33000 km now I am at 43000 km a year later. My oil change gauge shows 50% life left. Do I change by the oil life gauge or kilometres driven. Last change was with synthetic. Just wanting to see what the consensus is. Not...

    2015 Header recommendation and 02 sensor

    Hi Recently purchased a 2015 Regular Cab Shortbox 4X4 with 32000 km and the 5.7. I realize at some point the exhaust manifold bolts will break. I am thinking that at that time I would put on long tube headers. Looking for recommendations for a manufacturer, and what do you do with the O2...

    Just bought a 2015 with 32000 km . (20000 miles). Any pitfalls from the long term owners to look out for? Is this still in the hemi tick era? What does the fuel mpg to be expected? Anyone know what refridgerant is running in the A/C unit, blows cool not cold. Rick

    Eco Boost Turbo Lag

    I am soo happy with my GDE tune. I took out the GDE and sent it away for an update and with the stock ECM back in it literally hated driving it. So slow and unresponsive, scared to merge into traffic..

    P0404 Input needed

    My 07 5.7 was showing P0404, so I replaced the EGR and cleared the codes. I travel about 80 km and the light comes on again, so I pulled the PVC and cleaned the PCV and the housing. Also at this time I remove the PCV tube and it is clean and unobstructed. Bolt it all back together clear the...
