Good time to drain out a bit of fuel from the fuel filter into a mayo jar to check for water/etc and check air filter. Before I had the DEF deleted, we would clean the DEF injector with warm water and a paint brush. Whenever I change fuel filter or even drain out a bit, prime it for 6 key cycles. Sorry, I don't trust any dealer to do this, unless they let me go in the shop and watch. My other shops are happy to have me show them how to service an Ecodiesel, actually thanked me. I'm happy to pay 1/2 hour labor for an oil change and supply oil and filter. If I wasn't anal before, owning an Ecodiesel ,has made me that way, haha.
    Couldn't agree more! I'm the only one that will do that stuff.

    Another oil capacity question.

    I stopped allowing the ram dealership quick lane “oil change specialist earl” change mine after they filled mine with chevron delo after I SPECIFICALLY told them it was an ecodiesel and at that time required euro L. This was when it was a wash to have them do it or order everything cost wise. The oil change guys are generally relegated to that task because that’s “about” what they’re good for.... and you and I are both better lol.

    Take a white paint pen and put a line down the cap and onto the the filter housing. The "seal" will be broken once the cap is removed and most likely the lines will not line back up perfect.

    Or just tape a dollar bill to the cap when you take the truck in.

    You'll know if the filter's been changed.

    You guys are lucky, you can bait them with a $1 dollar bill, we have pockets full of loonies and twoonies, ($1 & $2's).

    But US guys have pockets full of pennies. So I would call it a draw.
