You could drop the pan and see if the pickup screen is plugged, but you may have a main bearing starting to go. I'd hook up an alternate pressure gauge and see if the pressure is really what it...

Hi, I have a 2003 Ram 1500 2wd with the 4.7. Lately when I'm on the highway my truck seems to go in and out of O/D, ( I think 5th and 4th). It happens on level ground and downhills. When pulling any...

Has anyone with a first gen 4.7 had any trouble getting their Superchips Flashpaq to connect with the truck's PCU? I cannot get mine to connect. I get an error message "unable to connect" .

All the chips are a resistor that goes into the IAT line that tells the ECU that the motor is cold so the computer runs a richer mixture. That's it. So you pay $69 for a resisitor that cost them...

Check out a long block from S & K Engines from Spokane. Try their website. I love mine. They update all the weak parts with newer designs while they are refurbishing the motor.

Oil can be blown anywhere under the hood from a leak. Air from the grill is blowing all different directions under there, the oil is going to go with it.

Look up under the front bumper and see if you have wiring running to the fog light mount holes. If the truck used to have fogs, there is a good chance the wiring is still there.

If your 02 sensors are old change the upstream ones. When mine went bad it ran like crap and I got a p0300 message. Use OEM sensors.

Why not pull the valve covers and look? And while you're at it give it a leak down/ compression check. Those things will answer a lot of questions.

Take my advice. Buy ONLY the OEM reservoir tank. I bought a new aftermarket one from ebay and it leaked from the moment I put it on, to save $20. Now I'm back to a OEM tank, stock cap.
