  3. Ecodiesel Engine Replacement Due to Freezing

    RAM 1500 Diesel General Discussion
    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...

  6. My New EcoDiesel 1500

    Introductions
    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...

    RAM 1500 Diesel Mechanical
    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.

    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...

    After years of owning a Ford, I'm really liking the Ram EcoDiesel trucks. After reading on the forum and checking them out, I've decided on a Laramie Longhorn. Unfortunately, the standard interior looks like Roy Rogers just moved in. Does anyone have any tips to "de-western" the longhorn? Do...

    RAM 1500 Diesel General Discussion
    We bought our new truck (2015 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel) in October and soon after the purchase the Check Engine Light came on.
