Hi - I've owned my Dodge Ram 1500 for 1 year and a half. I have accumulated 14000 miles. All recalls have been completed and up to date. I've been following and communicating with Shawn for about a year now. Shawn has really helped me understand and prevent future problems from pointing out regen monitoring and preventative maintenance.
I finished a medical program Amerillo Texas and planned a trip up North when a problem that was pre existing (Def trouble code on computet) said I had 200 miles to get the truck serviced or else engine would shut down. I was driving North on 93 in Idaho and the town ahead of me was Salmon Idaho - just by luck they had an outstanding dealership that took care of me - they completed all of the recalls - they changed the catalytic converter, cleaned out the Def tank and filled to full with fresh fluid, cleaned the EGT injecter, and checked the steering wheel harness for chaffing recall. All trouble codes were gone when I ran a diagnostic with my Edge Cts.
Just recently I made the mistake of putting Rain-X in my wiper tank, the full indicator is shorted and showing full and the the sprayer isn't working but the motor is - I have service scheduled at the local dealership here in Missoula Montana.
It was important for me to wait and get my truck serviced up North because I wasn't impresses with the shady mechanics down in Texas. If you want to see me and my truck pulling my Lance 2285 trailer up the mountains go to BriarRabid on g+.
Oh yes, one more thing - the hot chip sounds like it's the real deal :)
- the cam problem has me concerned! You would think that Dodge would have a service bulletin out on this
- both of my puddle lights are out

Welcome Russell..

We're glad to have you.. Sounds like you have found a good dealer. It seems those are hard to come by for a lot of people! Stick around and enjoy the site.

Thanks - she's running good but I see possible storm clouds off in the distance - I really do believe Dodge should have a service bulletin out on the cam sprocket

I have to get working - so I was heading to Coeur d Alene ID - I have priorities - I was taking the shortest route on state road 64 through Rangely CO up through Vernal UT into Wyoming - so I just nipped the North Eastern part of your state - I don't have much time and have to get moving - in the future after everything gets settled it will be different :)

Yeah I here you - I wanted a no frills company truck - the way I figured it is the less bells and whistles the less that can go wrong - if I could do again I'd have skipped the air ride and opted for your suspension set up - but I will say that 4×4 has proven it's value to me

What in the heck I going on in your life? You disappeared 3 months ago. I thought it was settled you were going to colorado, I still have never met a single ecodiesel owner in person to this day, I thought for sure you'd be first.

After talking with people whom I've know and respect I decided to change my course - and my course isn't for sure yet - location, quality of life, and opportunity are my guidance - right now the truck is giving me the same problem all over again - the comp is telling me I have 200 miles before the engine will shut down - this is really pisses me off - I'm really wondering if the hot chip is the solution to this mess as it bypasses the EGR

celtic tuning, raw performance in canada will do anything you want to the ecu for $500, they'll delete the ear out, dpf, scr, tune it, anything.

I thought you already had the hot tune from gde russel? I'm stuck with emissions equipment due to being in CA but am interested in doing the gde tune if anyone ever comes out with an aftermarket oil cooler to make me less weary going forward.

Got the truck back yesterday, Def problem was a loose connection on the exhaust pipe - they replaced my puddle LEDs no charge
Wiper fluid problem was hose had become disconnected - so all is working perfectly - ran diagostic with edge Cts and there were no trouble codes - EGT'S are stable across the board - first regen was right out of the shop and took awhile to complete, I suppose that was due to the fact that it wasn't regen in properly before the fix and was soothed up badly - engine is running like a sewing machine :)
