New Recall k36 found it today at Dodge dealer - REAR AXLE FLUID DRAIN-BACK FLOW RESTRICTOR - Pic
 
Went to the dealer for a problem with my RAM (RPM’s going up while sitting on idle) and found a new Recall on my paper work. RECALL K36 it is for the rear axle pinion bearing for 2011 Dodge built through December 04, 2010. Contact your local dealer as soon is possible. The service tech told me that they will install a new axle cover.

They had to order the part and they will do it next Friday. They asked for half day to do it. :confused:

Good grief. Half a day. That's going to end up being two days without my truck due to my work schedule. I'll have to wait until I get my bike back from the shop.

nah, too far. I'm on Lawn Guyland. The problem is, I don't trust any of them. So I gotta do a little homework and a bunch of phone calls and find out which one will try to stick it to me the least.

How long do we have before the rear blows up and falls off the truck?
Is Dodge saying this is a get it taken care of ASAFP?
