I'm not sure what your particular dealer will recommend but you should double check what they say you need to do against the owners manual and the diesel supplement. As for warranty issues, just keep all the receipts from where you purchased any fluids, filters, etc. and you'll be fine.

Hey randy..the process is the same for the the ETC on my 05 5.7L except i will only use brake clean! and dont have to worry about the IAC...so it is most likely easier?

like to hear back soon plan to do this tomorow

This was easy. My 1996 360 Magnum had the occasional overly rough idle after 117,000 miles. Even on good days it idled a little rough. I've owned this truck since '96 so I know the throttle body hasn't been touched. I remember how smooth it idled back in the late 90s. After three hours, including a trip to town for parts, this process seemed to smooth it up a bit. It still isn't perfect, but idle seems to settle at a lower RPM now and my tach needle doesn't bounce as much. Initial throttle response seems a bit improved. I'm anxious to go on a trip to see if fuel mileage was effected. My next step is to pull off the manifold. It looked pretty gummed up. Maybe I can find some improvement in cleaning that as well.

While you have the manifold off, I strongly recommend changing the cap, rotor, and wires. They're SO much easier to get to.

If you were completely insane and hated your ram you could try this.
Call me crazy ,but I don't think "shrapnel" should be the main ingredient of anything you put in your engine.
Did you read the reviews on the products ha ha?!

I'm trying to get the Throttle Body off. Can anyone tell me how to take the cables off without breaking the plastic things?

Also there is a hose or something that is on the front near one of the sensors (maybe vacuum line). how do I get that off too?

Thanks guys

Nice, I'm doing some work on my TB but I scratched the bores and scratched the plates bad and plate screw heads snapped off.

How is the IAC removed? and cleaning it will result in smoother idle? hoping to do the tb and IAC both tomorrow. might just do the tb mod while I have it off as well.
