Re: Power Steering Fluid Low? Check your rack and pinion for weeping

My 2011 GC is at the dealer right now having the rack replaced. I had the power steering growl for a week or two and the driver side is showing a fluid leak. I'm at just over 40k miles, but purchased...

Re: Question for those who change their own oil (Hemi)

I loosen the filter and put a plastic bag over it before it starts to drip. Grab the bag with the filter trapped inside and lower though the hole.

I've done this several times and make almost no...

Re: Hemifever can now tune 2011 5.7 GC's

I got my 89 tune from Sean within an hour of completing the purchase through PayPal. I know Sean's reputation precedes him, but his turn around time is impressive...almost as impressive as the tune...

Re: How many have switched to a full synthetic oil?

I switched at 800 miles, first to Amsoil then to Royal Purple. The RP seems to have eliminated any tick that may have been present.

I'm using the Royal Purple filters as well. No problems...

Re: Diablo - HemiFever Tuning - Question?

Re: Hemifevertuning.com using Diablosport Trinity

I have installed both the 87 and 89 octane tunes and never noticed any kind of surging. With the DynoMax cat-back exhaust I have on my 2011 WK2, I'm sure I would notice it. :(
