  1. 3rd Gen. Non-Powertrain
    New to forums hope this is the right spot for this discussion. I’ve combed through the threads and no one states their “fix” I disconnected my batteries while it was running the other day and it died immediately. Reconnected batteries now it only cranks. Also battery and fuel gauge are not...

    On my 07 yesterday I drove downtown for an errand and on the way home I felt a few small kicks or surges in my truck. First it was going about 70 then it continued maybe once a minute and in every gear once I would stick to a steady speed it would occasionally get a surge. At first I thought it...

    Hey everyone, any help is apprecaiated here. I have a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 with the 5.9 24 valve. It is mostly stock with a 5 inch exhaust and S&B intake. Also has a Airdog FP 150 lift pump, otherwise completely stock. Yesterday I noticed as I was driving to work up the high way that my egts were...

    Hey everyone, new to the forum and I got a couple of questions. Just bought a 2006 2500 5.9 with 125k on it. I've been noticing since having the truck, the transmission has been shifting hard. Not bad... just slaps pretty good between shifts (but not all the time) and jerks pretty good when...

    I have noticed that my MIL turns on when I drive in the snow. Today my wife used the truck to go to work, there was a big snow storm here in Chicago and her Mazda 3 wasn't going to make it out the driveway. She came back and the MIL was on, also happened on another occasion when I drove it in...

    Hey all, just thought I would share my little project I just completed. I installed an 1/8" thick aluminum sheet onto my tailgate to create a flat work surface. Got tired of things falling over, drinks spilling, being uncomfortable to sit on, and hard to clean. I had my local metal supplier...

    Hello everyone! I’m having this issue where my abs and brake light chime on the dash either once and stays on or constantly chimes on and off. Also my brake lights stay on for a few seconds longer after stepping off the pedal. Any ideas where to start?

    I hope you can hear the sound in the video I don't know how else to better explain other than it's like a faint low pitch kind of whistle. Almost sound like a turbo when it first starts spooling but definitely isn't. It does it at idle and every throttle position and speed. Best I can tell is it...

    Long story short a shop replaced the engine coolant sensor cause it was leaking when it went in for trans work. Ever since the sensor has been reading 60 degrees cooler than it actually is. So around operating it reads 125 degrees. From my understanding 03 has a different sensor than the years...

    Good evening ladies and gentlemen, For a week now I've finally had my truck back up and running. Had a rail relief failure plaguing me. Ran great starts every day, no loss of power. Runs better than ever. However starting Thursday morning wouldn't crank. No codes, no lights, no fire. She all...
  11. 3rd Gen. Performance Parts Discussion
    Hello everyone! This is my first post. I have a 06 automatic 4x4 with 140k miles. The previous owner installed an Edge cts3 insight monitor only. It works really well but for most of the gages, I'm not sure what I'm looking at, for example around what range the engine load be around? Without...

    I have a 2003 SO with only 127k on It and was wondering if anyone has ever built the SO version of the common rail? Or at least performance mods. I got an Edge Cs2 tuner which is alright and 5in exhaust. Just curious on what others have done or thoughts on what would be good mods for it

    Trying to remove and replace my coolant overflow tank on 2003 ram 3500 5.9 dually. Had a little issue. What is the best way?
  15. 3rd Gen. Powertrain
    I am going to be swapping my 04 DCLB 1 ton over to a dually axle in the nest couple months. What all do I need? I know I need a rear end out of a dually but my suspension should be fine because the truck is already a 1 ton? Will a different gen axle directly fit? I also do not need a bed because...

    Hello all, new member here. My call sign is PanheadHalo. I took on the project of changing the clutch in my 2003 3500 with 5.9 L diesel and six speed transmission. Bought a clutch kit and fly wheel from Phoenix friction. Never had done this work before but I work on my own motorcycle. So I went...

    Howdy, I am new here to this forum, so bear with me.. I have a couple of questions. I’ve been looking at a few forums, but couldn’t seem to collect the right opinions I was looking for. I currently have a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 5.7 Hemi, but potentially exploring the option of a 5.9L...
