Re: Method for adding fuel additives?

I use OptiLube XPD. The first batch I ordered was the kit with a gallon of additive, measuring hand-pump, 8oz and 16oz bottles. I usually fill at about 1/4 tank so I always have the 8oz bottle in the...

Re: First oil change some info and comments

It's always advisable to wait after you filled oil. Most engines fill oil from the top. The oil has to flow by gravity through the oil galleries to get to the oil pan all the way at the bottom of the...

Re: Method for adding fuel additives?

I'm not comfortable with that method. I prefer adding the additive just before a fill-up at the pump when the engine is off. Additives are supposed to be mixed at the right ratio. If I add it at home...

Emissions Readiness after CAT replacement

Re: MIL & P20EE again & again & again...

Why would they roll Rev-e back? Rev-e doesn't even fix anything related to SCR/NOX over Rev-d. The only items added in Rev-e is AC duty cycle and EGR cleanup routine.

Re: Sound dampening material in wheel well removal/replacement

Re: First oil change some info and comments

Not sure what are you looking at to verify the part number, but according to mopar.com 68229402AA is the correct PN for oil filter for the EXF platform (EcoDiesel) and costs $60 there.
