You should have gotten rid of that thing awhile ago.
I also have never heard of any issues using Amsoil as long as the viscosity is correct? I don't know enough about it yet to know if I would want to use it in my Allison tranny for my duramax, but I am open to feedback on that from Nick and anyone else who has used it in diesel trucks and HD trannies. I do think Amsoil has good stuff for the differentials and I'll be switching to that here in the next few thousand miles.
You really think where it was built matters? Same equipment and tools used to assemble the vehicles at the various factories.
These little things will not properly jump start a gas or diesel V8 engine and it's low voltage can cause damage. You need a REAL jump box, something like this: It is important to look at the number of required cranking amps (CA) before buying a jump starter, That’s especially true in a diesel engine, which is harder to start. The required CA varies with the size and/or type of the engine which you are looking to jump-start. If insufficient, you won’t be able to start your engine no matter how hard you try. Today we’re looking at the best portable jump starters for diesel engines. Diesel Engines have a bigger compression figure than Petrol Engines. So, they require a significantly greater number of CA than gasoline engines of the same size. According to an estimate, diesel engines require double cranking current than the petrol engine of the same size https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000KPSA0W/ref=as_li_ss_il?ie=UTF8&linkCode=li3&tag=turbogadgetre-20&linkId=e065bf83c7d6a105b4618a84a8f6a62c&language=en_US&th=1
My suggestion- Reboot the thing and start over! Take the battery cables off, leave them off for an hour, then touch them together (to discharge whatever power is left in the system, no it will not shock you unless you have 2 batteries and the other is still hooked up) then reconnect the battery cables, start her up and see how she does now. Keep a written log as well, noting what is happening, when it happens under what conditions.
They couldn't sell them. Probably because they are so ugly. They are the ugliest truck out there. I have no doubt the Diesel engine was magnificent in them. But looks matter. Look at their sales numbers: Pretty shitty, eh? I'm surprised they haven't discontinued the Titan altogether, but maybe we'll see them do so in the next year or two.
