  1. Evidently these were not created equal... One should expect that they are when purchased from a dealer tho... This could have been a major disaster. I'm not sure what damage may have been done.. hopefully minimal as it seams to run and sound okay at this time.
  2. What's this have to do with the o-rings flattening out and becoming brittle? They were Mopar from dealer. They only had 40-50k on them. I have the original injectors in the garage with the o-rings still on em and they look great with 125k on them.
  3. Update...... So, it turns out that I had fuel mix in with my oil. The O-rings on the injectors became flat and brittle. My injectors were replaced about 3.5 years ago with 50 over and O-rings were new OEM from my local Dodge dealer. Not sure why.. Just sharing what happened. It appears that it was caught in time... fingers crossed.
  4. Thanks for the response .. I did have some vacuum problems/leaks a few weeks ago or so but I believe they were rectified. Will check into again. Anything else that can cause this or just vacuum leaks? Thanks again...
  5. Hey all.. I installed a catch can on my truck a little over a week ago to avoid the oil spots on the driveway. Well.. after one week it collected around 9-10 ounces. Seems pretty excessive.. or no? If so.. why or what is causing it? Thank you....
  6. Oh my goodness... My son (28 years old) certainly wears big boy pants. He has served our country for 7.5 years with the US Air Force and is now super busy working as a defense contractor. I didn't come here for criticism, judgement, belittling or speculation. I came here for advice for him. He is more than capable but works a lot and doesn't have enough garage space. I would help him but unfortunately he lives 2200 miles away. Perhaps I came to the wrong place.... Have a great day!
  7. Hey all... My son bought a 98.5 about a year ago. He brought into a shop for something (can't remember) and they dropped a bomb ... but said otherwise... runs fantastic. I haven't been keeping up to date with things... So, I'm here asking for guidance/recommendations as far as making sure he gets/uses quality parts... please. I don't know what a PCS BIG BORE GEARBOX is. Is this good? Is Redhead still a good or a better choice? Should he go with Dodge Off Road steering brace as well? What track bar should he go with? Dodge Off Road? Shocks? Bilsteins still a great choice? Which model? Stock height... Are all ball joints created equal? Does this quote seem reasonable?

  8. Hey guys... My truck has been giving me a hard time starting. It started happening last year and only did it when I was parked nose uphill. I remember reading something about this one time a few years back... but never heard what the cause was. This year.. a few months ago.. it's been starting hard on level ground. I have to hold the key on for 10-15 secs til it fires up. Almost like leaving it unplugged on cold days of winter. This only happens the first start of the day and only if I let it sit for more than 24 hours. Where do I start? No pun intended.... Thanks
  9. Hey John.. Thanks for letting me know I posted in wrong forum and the info. The starter cranks and motor is cranking but takes 10-15 secs to fire up. Like leaving it unplugged in the winter...
