Morning everybody -
Yesterday noticed erratic idle on my little '13 hemi express. Popped the hood and found - the back two green screws on the throttle body were sitting about a half inch out. Both of them. Straight from Saltillo plant. Read on this gets much better.
So I get the 8mm and remember someone said this has a plastic intake. Yes it does. PLASTIC. So I take the front two out and pull the throttle body off just to look. The screw holes are straight plastic. There's not even a metal thread sleeve down in the plastic. So I keep my comments in my head and reassemble it. Read on it gets better.
So I remember in the old days that we reset the PCM on these trucks whenever anything was apart or whatever. So I go over to the PCM and unlatch the right harness and it pulls away. When I go to unlatch the left harness, it makes a cracking sound - and pieces of plastic fall off and out of the latch. I tried to reattach it and it won't relatch and is now apart.
How about that? new '13 express with a broken non serviceable wiring harness from the factory 10K miles.
Ya'll have a good day.
