I had my fuel pump go out and have heard that many others have as well, unfortunately I don't have to much info on it...except that the code that flashes on your dash is P0628... something to look into

How Do I...

Actually I'm thinking about changing my trans fluid and adjusting the bands. A "how to" on this would be good for us beginners. Like how to remove the Valve Body to get that extra quart of fluid out. Pictures and steps from a pro or a reputable source would be great.

Valve bodys are very sensitive.I like I'd leave it alone.Dosen't take much to warp one.I'd let a shop use a fliud exchange on it quicker then I'd monkey around with the valve body.

I think cablights install would be nice and the fuel filter step through would be good to add. Plus common things like 'How big a tire can I run without a lift?' would be good.

How about brakes?

I've done plenty of brakes in Honda's, Ford's and even done a few Chevy's, Jeeps and VW's but never on a Dodge. With these prior vehicles, most needed something odd like torq sockets or some goofy tool to pull back in the piston in the rear calipers because of the E-brakes.

Can come one post a how-to on brakes so some of aren't surprised when we take the wheel off? It sure is nice when you know exactly which size socket or goofy tool one needs to get the job done, instead of having to run to a store after the wheels are off.

Thanx!

I can tell you that there are no special torq bits or any other required for the brake job. But remember that our brakes have twin calipers so you will need something to press one back in and hold the other. Make sure that you take off the cap on the brake fluid reservoir so the fluid can fill it back up as you press in the calipers. I usually use a C-clamp to hold one and large channel locks to press the other back in. And don't forget to replace the cap when you are done (they are around 25 bucks at the dealer ship, trust me, I know).

Actually you don't want the fluid to push back into the reservoir, this will contaminate the ABS with the old dirty overheated fluid. Instead put some fluid in an old bottle, ( soda bottle will work fine ) , open your bleeder and then push the pistons back. This will also flush the old fluid out of your callipers. Then just top off you reservoir with new fluid.

Talking

Monty;

I am currently working on a gauge install write up for the thrid gen trucks. This will include some 14 photos, and a compilation of the lessons learned for installing the Fuel Press, Boost, Pyro, and a Rail Pressure unit. specifically included will be information for wiring the optix units. I will also cover the installation of the earlier Diprocol units before the Optix series.

Many, many guys have had problems with their trucks, and many have still not solved it. Myself included.

Yeah, post # 23.

That guy came here, laid down some awesome info and then ran off (last activity 12/3)? That was the only thread he ever contributed to also.....?

Good write up, I nominated that one for a "Tech Facts" a while back myself.
