But I generally detest people who drive in the middle lane when no one is in the right lane. And it doesn’t seem to matter if they are pulling a trailer, driving an RV, etc.
    When pulling my 24' travel trailer, and there are 3 or more lanes, I never travel in the right lane. I have always considered that the merge/exit lane when in urban areas. I have no interest in dodging vehicles getting on or off the freeway at 60+mph. When/if people learn how to merge with the flow of traffic I will reconsider my position. I am not expecting that to happen any time soon.

    Did you have air suspension at the time?

    Quickest and basically a for sure answer ,remove your oil filter and check for metal shavings in between the pleats, If you spun bearings there’s going to be metallic particles...

    I agree. A "blown motor" because of lower end failure, typically will still start if turns over. I've seen running engines with holes in the block due to a rod coming loose.

    Please allow me to apologize. I should’ve said that I detest it when people do this, not that I detest people who do it. It takes time and effort for me to communicate better.

    Having said that, it’s clear we shall not agree on this topic. Reminds me a bit of the lane ends, merge right argument where people get mad when others occupy the lane that ends up to the last minute. That’s what should happen, IMHO. How many miles is “socially acceptable” to abandon that lane and extend the line?

    Aside from my own thread hijack above, I will certainly follow up with what is reported. The dealer did not call me today but hope to hear something on Monday. I will also update the title and/or thread to reflect that in case I got over zealous with my prediction. I do specifically recall thinking how much I like my truck earlier that morning and I hate being the worry-wort on the eco-d scare.

    Thanks,
    Z

    Well since there is oil on the dipstick you didn't take the lower end out! As for warranty, mine has 8 years or 120,000 miles as I bought the truck with the Mopar bumper to bumper warranty that covers everything with a $100 deductible. I have had vehicles go well past the 250k mark and have had (all Fords) drop engines under the 36k mark. Shit happens when you have hundreds of parts spinning at high RPMs for miles on end. After you get the report back as to what is wrong with the truck let us know.

    Good luck.

    Add another one to the list...

    My truck did the same thing when the lift pump quit. When it happened I immediately feared the worst. I was able to get it running after awhile (died 2 more times on the way and feared I would fry the HPFP but didnít) to get it to a ram dealer. Paid their $1200 as I was hours from home and my tools out of warranty. My truck was at 130kish miles I believe. There may be hope yet. At your mileage, if the lift pump hasnít been replaced... I would not be surprised. Donít add it to the list just yet.

    If only it were as simple as a reset! Here's my thread that includes pics of the parts and the repair bill.
