    So the Ram Towing Capacity shows me 9600 lbs but that's always on the safer side of things, I'm wondering if anyone has tried towing more than their officially listed capacity? Thanks,

    I’ve got a 2016 Ecodiesel. I bought it Dec of 2020 with 85k miles. It now has 135k. I’ve been everywhere from the Canadian border to the Mexican Border in this truck, through the rockies and across the desert with no problems. I am a mechanic by no means, so hopefully i can find some help here...
  4. RAM 1500 EcoDiesel 3rd Gen Towing & Hauling
    Hi, I have a 2016 EcoDiesel Outdoorsman tuned + deleted and I'm hoping to tow around 7000 lbs with it. After doing some research it seems that lots of people are towing 8000+ lbs no problem but there's no mention of how their ecodiesels are spec'd (tunes, suspension, other upgrades, etc.) I'm...

    I am new to the ecodiesel life. I purchased a 2018 Ram 1500 ecodiesel 4x4 at the beginning of January 2022. 90k miles (powertrain warranty is almost up) No check engine lights or anything on dash. I began noticing that the transmission seems to slip, and then hard shift into first/2nd gears...

    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...

  12. 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...

    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...
