Coolant spelling and AMSOIL

The change to AMSOIL can't possibly cause a coolant leak. Hoses wear and small cracks develop.
Do you see and smell coolant is there just some condensation?

You could have made better choices

At 1100 miles your should have changed the FILTER, if you had any "break in" concerns. But nothing to obsess over. At 6K, if the oil was (as I suspect to be true) the color of iced tea and your...

Depends on filtration requirements

If you have the K&N, the filter can be washed at any time and anyplace. Maybe a strong dusty period, or high pollen time or poor air quality. So the K&N can be washed more frequently and as needed....

Screw on filter relocation

You'll see online filter relocation kits if you insist on larger filters, which I don't fault your for.
If you want the oil in your truck analytically clean, look into AMSOIL's (or similar brand)...

Pull really hard, yank it

Did you try the foolproof "yank on it" technique. Finds wobbly steering apparatus, bent tie rods, blown shocks etc.

Pull and Yank on it

Don't let your mind go in the gutter. With the truck on flat ground with the rear brake on, grab the wheel and "twist" clockwise and ccw. See if you hear and feel a clunk.
Then if you can, jack...

Fuel and oil to blame too

There is no rationale in suggesting or assuming (etc etc) that 5w-20 oil formulations "should be pretty much all the same across the board" (exact quote). Oil chemists for one company and refinery...

No reason to be scared

Some of the valve rattle is because of the so called "oxygenates" (corn alcohols) in your fuel. Odd combustion activity at low temperatures.
Plus very hard metal used in the valves.

Just let...

Measurements would be required

To determine what the OEM amp is doing, cables/wires, speaker design, crossover, speaker material, basket, input source etc - would all have to be understood. So your question would be difficult to...

Factory shocks are JUNK

I"m bowled over at the amount of truck owners with OEM shocks. You see the oil leaking out etc.
The BEAUTY of shocks is how easy they are to upgrade. ANYTHING is better than OEM.

Very sensible method

This is what I do, as suggested here. When you have the tires rotated just STICK YOUR HEAD in the wheel well and look at the pad lining.

You can also take note of vanishing brake fluid; but some...

How would you suppose a "performance chip" gets enough (or causes fuel to be burned sufficient to yield) 3 more miles per gallon?

Something "magic" going on in the combustion chamber? What would...

Fabulous project

You can count on one hand the RAM owners who take the time to change the diffy fluid - so good job.
You could at least share the brand you used.
Spill the beans on the suspension goodies.

Paranoid fantasies

There is just something consistent on car/truck forums about the first oil change - a certain insecurity arises.

Myths abound about break-in activity. My favorite assinine comment is: "Vary the...
