  5. Brake caliper fail after pad replacement

    2013 Dodge Ram Forum
    A good mechanic would of taken the caliper off the mounting bracket, cleaned it good with spray, greased the slides, checked the pistons, and made sure it was working before putting it back on vehicle. A parts changer will not do any of this. This is why I do all my own maintenance. Just did all...
  6. DEF consuming a lot, EcoDisel 2018 Laramie Ram

    2018 Dodge Ram Forum
    its only a matter of time anyway before the DEF corrodes the tank heater sensors and will have to be replaced anyway. It is happening to Ford ,Gm, and Ram. I know of all three that have problems with the sensors corroding. They have no fix,they simply replace the whole tank. GM has a new...

  9. I Can't Believe This

    2019 Dodge Ram Forum
    The larger the tank the more gas is needed to keep the fuel pump submerged in fuel so that is does not burn out. This is why people burn up their fuel pumps by running them too low on fuel.

  13. Very little coasting

    2015 Dodge Ram Forum
    Everyone with a 8-speed transmission, that trans is a learning trans and will adjust over time to your driving habbits. I have a 2014 Chevy Cruze diesel for a daily driver and it does the exact same thing with coasting. It downshifts, or transmission brakes, call it what you want.
