Oil change
so i did my first oil change and dealership added an additive and they said next time they were going to add a fuel additive because of engine sludge because they say the gas is horrible and for the hemi the additive will help

any one else heard of this ????

Nope. Chrysler doesn't advocate additives in their fluids. Sounds like a scheme to charge extra though. I don't believe I've ever seen a sludge complaint from anyone with a Hemi.

YEAH maybe i will opt out of this additive bull , they put an additive in my oil though

hear of that ?

Not from a dealership, I haven't.

Todays oils and gas are full of additives don't see any engines with sludge anymore unless they were really abused...I'd stay away from them.

Sludge takes more than a few miles to build up, and, a massive amount of neglect and stupidity.

high heat and cheap oil is most common sludge builder not neccesarily neglect and stupidity.just dont buy your oil at the dollar store.synthetic oils will keep engine clean and even reverse sludge buildup

I ain't buyin' this at all. Sounds like a revenue generator for the dealer.

How is a fuel additive gonna help with sludge? Sludge is formed in the oil, and unless you had 30k miles on your 2011 Ram before this first oil change and you somehow managed to rack up these miles with nothing but 10 minute trips, you don't have sludge.

Fuel addetives will only clean injectors and carbon buildup on top of the intake valves!
