    Hello, I am looking for a new engine for my 2015 JGC Ecodiesel. There are tons of engine part numbers out there. Anyone know the differences? 5158050AI vs 5158052AE I can get the first one without a core charge, and the second one has one. Is it because the '52' has the upgraded EGR, etc...

    Long story short, 1.5 months out of an extended Mopar and factory warranty, the "low oil pressure" light came on and my Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel lost all power. Towed to dealer, $1200 later in diagnostics, they say the Turbo isn't spinning up. During diagnosis, they found "shavings" in the oil...

    Hello, I have recently bought a 2018 ram 1500 ecodiesel after years of having a hemi. Im looking to maximize the mpg as I drive 100 miles a day for work. I'd say 90 miles is highway and 10 miles city. I'm looking to see if there are any tunes out there that won't fail me at inspection..or is...

  7. RAM 1500 Diesel Tuning
    First, I am not a mechanic. I can't even find the sparkplugs on my 3.0L EcoDiesel. I bought a used 2015 RAM 1500 Laramie Longhorn a year ago with 27,000 miles on it. 33,000 now. I bought not knowing that the engines are prone to develop serious issues on occasion. It had 1 undefined recall...
  8. RAM 1500 Diesel General Discussion
    Hi everyone, I bought my truck with 58000 miles. Bought the extended warranty because of experiences I’ve read about. Okay so up until this point I’ve changed oil twice, fuel filter once and air filter. Everything has been excellent with my truck. Last week driving around going up a small hill...

    Hello everyone, I've had my 2015 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel for 26 months about to crest the 80k mile mark. I purchase it Aug '18 with a very low 24k miles cpo, haven't had a single issue. The only replacements outside of normal maintenance have been tires, a battery, and the egr. Still on the original...

    Has anyone tried to do a suspension lift kit that is NOT the 4in BDS that keeps the air ride. Really want a 6 inch lift to fit 37s and would love to do without the air ride overall given I've had the truck a month and already replaced 1 air bag. That being said most to all kits say they will not...

    My trucks been making an odd whistling noise when I accelerate, sounds like it could be the turbo. Used to only do it around 2300+ rpm but just today I started noticing it as low as 1800 rpm while accelerating. Had the EGR cooler recall done a few weeks ago as well as #3 glow plug replaced, not...

    Hey everyone! Just wanted to announce a new project I have started called "ECOBRAP". We are a YouTube channel and social media platform that aims to reduce the carbon footprint of racing (Yes, barking up the wrong tree, I know). But the purpose of the channel is to show that we can still have...

    More on this, but after weeks of -5 C to -30 C weather, my Ecodiesel suddenly would not turn over. Got it towed in to the dealer and they said that the engine needs to be replaced. More details to come on the cause as I learn more. The issue apparently is that the cold weather cover for the...

    So I posted a few weeks ago about my fan going crazy, my coolant being low and obviously having a leak. (well obvious to you guys) Made an appt to have to looked at in dealership in Monroe, WA near Seattle because I live in the middle of nowhere and the closest RAM dealer did not have level 3...

    Last night I took my new 1500 EcoDiesel out for a little photo shoot under the stars. The photo is a 15 minute exposure showing the rotation of the earth thanks to the star trails. The only editing done to the photo was to lighten the foreground up a little since there was no moon last night...

    Yesterday morning I traded in my 2004 Nissan Frontier for a 2017 Big Horn EcoDiesel and am absolutely loving it! It's a 2 wheel drive in granite crystal. In the two days of owning I've put about 200 miles on it and I'm already getting 27-29 MPG average. Being a 2017 the dealer was willing to...

    Good Evening Everyone, So I have a 2014 Ecodiesel 1500 with 66k on it. Purchased it not running with the assumption the cam gear had spun. After checking timing and a compression test I came to question the hpfp. I sent it out to be tested and it was bad (high pressure valve had failed). Just...

    I am five months into ownership and have been lurking here for awhile. Definitely enjoying the truck so far, coming from a Ford F-150 5.0L that was getting 13-16 mpg most of the time I owned it. I'm getting good numbers around town back and forth to work, and good highway numbers at 55-65 mph...
