  1. Hemi vs ED Review

    RAM 1500 Diesel General Discussion
    Many of you here know me from my long term ownership (3+ years) of an Ecodiesel. Two months ago, I traded it in on a Hemi. My main motivation was to get a 4WD pickup, but I was also a little scared of the lower end failures on the ED, didn't like the soot untuned, and didn't like the potential...

Dealer now says "oil viscosity too low, will not allow regen. "must change oil and do manual regen." Oil and filter chgd 4000 miles ago! I...
