windshield wiper noise

2012 1500 Bighorn. Windshield wipers started making a weird noise. Almost sounds like a spring being stretched or vibrating. Anyone else had this and know what to do about it?

Windshield Washer Fluid

my washers froze up with whatever comes with the Ram. kind of disapointing to have a new truck and not have the washers work. I had the same thought and poured in a quart of isopropal alchohol....

maybe a block heater

It seems that when it gets below about -10 or so it is hard to get better than 14-15 mpg even after it is warmed up. I'm sure the winter gas contributes but we have been on winter gas for a while...

Any Tips for Improving Gas Mileage

another idea is to drive 10% less. probably most of us could cut our driving by 10%. that would be the same as increasing our mpg by 10%.

warm up?

I never warm my truck up. I just drive off slowly for the first couple miles. I have been thinking of adding a block heater so the crankcase would be warmer when starting out in the morning.

Do our trucks have synthetic gear lube in the differentials...

MPG has gone down with the cold weather and I was wondering if switching to synthetic gear lube in the differentials and transfer case would help. Any thoughts?

Ok ok just a thought for better gas mileage

It won't work. Here's why: the engine is about 30% efficient and turns the alternator which is about 60% efficient. the alternator produces electricity to separate the oxygen and hydrogen. the oxygen...

windshield washer not working

Don't know if there is still some summer fluid in there that is frozen out if the pump crapped out. When you activate the washers can you hear any sort of motor sound? Don't have a heated garage and...

Pricing on 2014 Diesel

I have the roll up tonneau cover. I like it but it rattles in the wind. My friend's 3 piece doesn't make any noise.
The best option I got is the backup camera. I also like the 4 wheel drive auto...

I made a 300 mile round trip last weekend, 70 mph, including 4-5 stop signs and 5 miles of gravel road. Reset the EVIC and it says I got 20.3 MPG. Running 87 octane with ethanol. Truck is stock and I...

So you have the towing package and the integrated brake controller but don't have a receiver hitch? Are you sure you don't have 2x2" square hole under your bumper? If so then just get a receiver...

How about a mod to keep MDS on?

Try to get the local dealer to match

In my case I ended up buying from my local dealer. He actually got the vehicle from one of the other dealers I was talking to. I think if you are patient and don't give in too easily you can get...

12 or 13?

I have a 2012 Bighorn and the one thing I wish I had is power folding mirrors. It's a tight fit through my 16' garage door with the wife's car on the left side. I heard that the 13's have power...

Never noticed it

I have the 32 gal tank and haven't noticed any sloshing or jerking. I always fill to the max and drive until the Evic says 0. Usually have about 3 gallons left - put in about 29. I'll have to check...

91 non-oxy

I think it would be interesting to try 91 non-oxygenated gas and compare to 89. If the mpg was better it might be worth the increased cost. I've never seen non-oxy 89 but that would be ideal.

Does anyone know how the MPG is calculated? Is it averaged over the last 10 miles or something?

I made a similar decision last month

Was looking at the 2012 F150s. I liked how they look on the outside better than the ram. I didn't even test drive a Chevy because of how they look. After reading everything I could find I decided to...
