  1. I drove my truck about 500 miles, round trip, yesterday on the interstate. Got stuck in wreck traffic. The temp got up to 168*F. When we got moving the temp dropped back down to around 158*. Never did the temperature get above 168* the entire time. I saw 96* on the outside temperature. My truck managed to show 23.1MPG on the DIC. Take from that information, what you want, but I would say for myself, I am satisfied.
  2. I'd be interested to know if it worked for you when get around to doing it.
  3. Sounds like we are on a similar path. I pull a gallon (vacuum) out the dipstick.
  4. Hoping for 200k out of mine too. Or at least until I retire which is quite a few more years.
  5. I saw this video the other day and thought it might help you.
  6. Just hit this mark on the way home tonight. I did the transmission thermostat flip over the weekend and wanted to see how it effected the trans temp. We went to Knoxville and did a little running around. When we got back to our exit, we stopped by Chick-Fil-A and sat in line for a few minutes. The trans temp got up to 158 but then on the 5 mile drive back home it dropped back to 153. Hopefully that will help with trans life along with my 15K mile/1 gallon trans fluid change out.
  7. I did the transmission thermostat flip. We took my truck to Knoxville tonight. Ran around a little. We stopped by Chick-Fil-A and sat in line for a few minutes. The trans temp got up to 158*F while in line. That was the highest I saw during the whole trip. We live about 5 miles away from Chick, the temp dropped back down to 153*F before we got home. So it is cooling and maintaining pretty cool. I am pretty happy with that outcome so far. I'll still do my 15k mile one gallon transmission fluid change. It's cheap enough and easy enough and may help. It cannot hurt.

  10. The fluid may never make it to the radiator. Leaving the transmission, when it gets to the thermostat housing it will take the path of least resistance and get sucked back into the transmission. Flipping the pill, blocks the short cut and forces the fluid to the radiator and then back to the transmission.
  11. You have to have 2 original keys? I bought my truck used at the dealer and only got the one key.
  12. I'll have to drive it to work one day next week and see how it acts. It used to be about 195*F when I got to work. It's about 40 miles one way.
  13. I cut the lid out because oil came out of my truck so fast the tiny hole could not handle it. I have since gotten the Fumoto valve and that is no longer a problem. I always drain the pan back into the empty oil containers and take it back that way. I built this rack and put the pan handle over the 1x4 and let it drain into the used container. Easy peasy.
