    Question Wax/Paint Care

    What are you guys using for wax/exterior care these days? Both my truck and wife's car exterior need some TLC. I've really grown tired of the wax getting into the plastic and leaving the white haze. Seems inevitable no matter how careful you are. I've seen lots of advertisements for the spray...

    Hissing Under Hard Acceleration

    Hey guys, been a while! Admittedly, i do not wrench on my 2011 like i used to on my 7.3, so trying to see what i could be getting myself into here before i try to address the problem. Yesterday, i was towing a trailer with golf cart (maybe 3000 lbs total, so not much) and i started to notice a...

    garret turbo

    Just my 2 cents...i had the WW installed on my stock turbo of my '02 and all was fine for a few years. Eventually, the turbo went south and it was clear that the shaft was out of balance based on the markings from where the wheel was hitting on the housing. Had a rebuilt turbo put in and had...

    i used to go motorcraft until they changed their warranty (which i believe was 3 year free replacement and prorated up to 5?). it was either that or o'riley's super start brand has the exact same warranty. in any case...super starts are in there now.

    Oil Leak From Drain Plug

    Highly unlikely that it is anything else, but could be the o-ring on the drain plug has gone bad. In any case, if you don't want to mess with having the dealer replace can pick up a metal pan on ebay for about $60 and do it yourself. Not all that involved, i just didnt want to mess...

    Insulating a Camper Shell

    there's a company called hothead headliners that makes headliners for jeeps because they have no insulation. Might see if they could make you something? My parents have this in their wrangler and it has made a night and day difference in the inside temp.

    Oil Leak From Drain Plug

    Took it in to the dealer...sure enough...oil pan was bad! They replaced it with the newer pan that is metal now so all is well. My service guy also noticed the egr cooler was starting to leak, so i got a new one of those along with new coolant at 85k miles! All under the 5/100k warranty. Good...

    Help Needed Folding Bed Cover Advice

    I ended up going with the BakFlip F1. Great fit and finish, but its leaking pretty bad. Currently in the process of making a warranty claim so we'll see what happens.

    Oil Leak From Drain Plug

    My 2011 has the hard plastic oil pan and squirrely plastic quarter turn drain plug. For a while now, I've had a little leak from where the plug is and assumed it was the o-ring going back on the drain plug. So, i went ahead and just purchased a new drain plug and installed when i did my last...

    Help Needed Folding Bed Cover Advice

    Leaning towards the BakFlip F1. Seems to be the most heavy duty in terms of latch system, dent resistance and overall quality. Gotta find a deal on it now!

    Help Needed Folding Bed Cover Advice

    In the market now for a folding bed cover. I've looked at quite a few and not sure what direction to go. I currently have a low profile toolbox filled with stuff and really hate to lose that storage space. I know there are some covers out there that offer integrated tool boxes (bak flip has...

    EGT codes

    have you had the recall done? those codes seem familiar to the EGT sensor failing that causes the truck to go into limp mode. Now, if you were running it hard or towing, might be bigger concerns like Joe mentioned.

    2015 6.7 foam pre filter location

    If you open up the air filter box and pull the air filter, it should be under the front part of the filter directly under the "thinner section." It is stuffed into the air box. I took mine out once and never put it back in. Seems like an unnecessary restriction...the stock air filter should...

    Check Coolant Additive Warning.....

    Really seems to be the case, which is sad. I really enjoyed the "small" feeling this place had and the community aspect of it. Certainly learned a lot from some pretty stellar folks on here. I think it maybe is because a lot of us have upgraded to new(er) rigs that we just can't tweak as...

    Fuel Additives

    yep, i still run power service in mine almost every tank. I go off the back of the bottle, but generally run about 8 oz when i fill up my 25 gallon tank. 8 oz apparently treats 30 gallons, so might be a tad rich but i would agree on the power aspect...seems to be a little snappier when i run...

    When to get concerned?

    if you're running synthetic, you dont even need to bat an eye at it until it gets up to 240*. I've read about others pulling their 5ers over a steep pass in colorado and 240* is where it topped out. like dave said, 5k is nothing ti even blink at.

    Bilstein 5100 Series Shock Absorbers

    I put a set of these on my truck at about 50k miles as my stock Rancho ones had been shot for a while. I immediately noticed a difference in the ride as it felt more like it did when it was new. I've read they rancho ones go out pretty quick.

    Question What did you do to your truck today?

    2 new superstart batteries from o'reallys? yesterday. This is now the 3rd set of batts in the truck. First motorcraft ones had to be replaced after 2 years because one was leaking acid ready bad. Put 2 superstarts in there in 2013 (3yr free replacement and then pro-rate up to 84 months), and...
