Does anyone run a bypass oil filter on their engine? Can't seem to see anyplace to put one. Using a return line thru the oil cap seemed like an easy way to return it. OH, where to mount it. Baldwin...

Ok, I get the message. No used motor oil, regardless of how clean. I am guessing that only certain injector cleaners are acceptable. Costco has, hmm, I think it was Chevron injector cleaner. Is it...

Good information to know. Going back to the use of used engine oil in the fuel, seems like I read that oil filters clean the oil down to 25 or maybe it was 15 microns. I can use a fuel filter from...

About the 2005 Dodge diesel

A camshaft grind? What ever it is, I sure notice a difference in the exhaust smell vs the older 5.9 engines. What surprises me about this set up is the distance between oil changes. Seems like the...

Well, from the one reply, it sounds like this is 'normal'. What is different with the common rail engine that causes this to occur? By pass filter using tp would be interesting to try. Sure don't...

Oil is black too quickly

Have had 2 97's and a 99 Dodge Ram with the diesel. Bought a 2005 with less than 67K and hoped it to be the one I take to the grave. At 69K I changed the oil and filter, exactly when the window...

Doesn't look too pleasant, but better than having the contacts fuse together, ruin the starter and melt the wiring around the fuel solenoid. Seems like I got by cheap on that episode, only about $500...

That makes sense, I thought IIRC was another make of rear end, but it was not mentioned before. Guess I will have to take up texting to get another step into the 21st century. Good info to know.. JH
