  1. Maintenance Question

    If the E core was truly bad, and mind you that GM has been using them for around 3-4 years now, on MILLIONS of oil changes, wouldn’t you expect to see lots of engine failures by now?
  2. Cut the oil filter open and take a look at the media inside. That should tell you if there is a problem.
  3. Brake Errors During DPF Regen

    I’m guessing you already did this, but completely REMOVE the “camper wiring” that the RV dealer installed and see if your problem goes away. If it does, go from there. My guess is the RV dealer eff’d something up if all that started right after they worked on it. Make sure you check for wiring they may have accidentally spliced into, then removed when they realized that didn’t work. Those insulation displacement connectors can wreak havoc on automotive wiring if not installed correctly. Also, if this is a diesel, why did the RV dealer have to screw with anything? It should have the correct trailer brake/connector already from the factory?

    I’ve been to Pittsburg, no thanks...lol, just sayin.

    I’ve got real world experience owning both trucks. So I know my driving habits haven’t changed and it’s literally 1mpg difference between them both.

    I’ve got a Tundra with a 5.7L. It gets a consistent 15.5 - 16mpg with 85% of that in town driving. My 2014 Silverado got 17 and spent 85% of the time in the shop getting fixed, lol. I’ll take the 1mpg hit.
  7. Oil pan crack

    I agree, casting flash...not a crack. The leak is elsewhere.

    In my opinion, the Tundra is the closest thing to a real truck you can still buy. Great V8 that hasn’t been eff’d up by using stop start tech, DI, cylinder deactivation, exhaust flapper valves, or any of the other doo dads that just cause issues later on. The 6 speed tranny is legit and extemely intuitive. The 4.30 rear axle is rock solid. It’s a tried and true truck that some say is dated, but I think it’s nearing perfection with thought out incremental improvements. I’ve owned one for 3 years now and it’s not needed anything but oil changes.
  9. 90k and discounted 20%....that’s how they do it.
  10. Sounds like a universal joint failing.
  11. Tundra rides way better than the K2 Silverados. Hopefully the T1 generation rides better with the new suspension setup.
  12. 4 years now GM has been using those piss poor seats. The cloth seats are not terrible, but the leather seats feel like your sitting on plywood with seams sewn into places where they should not be. I’m curious to how the 2019 seats feel...

    Looking at the pictures above, the interior looks rushed and cheap with lots of black plastic on a top of the line model. Maybe GM can hire the interior design team away from Ram, they know how to design an interior for sure...
  14. 2018 5.3L engine knock

    When my Xfer case went out at 20k miles, they installed a reman unit. I thought it was BS as well.
  15. White Smoke on startup

    The Ram has a fantastic ride to it and the interior on the new 2019 Rams is unreal.
