Seafoam 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7
Saw some other videos and reviews about this stuff, so I gave it a shot.
Also there's other info about my truck included. This is on a 2004 Dodge
Ram 1500 with the 4.7 liter magnum engine with about 107k miles. Has
true-dual flowmaster two chamber 40series mufflers with 2 pipes out front
of the passenger side rear tire. Also has the Superchips cortex programmer
tuned for 87 octane performance. Hayden 12'' electric fan with the Hayden
radiator probe/switch. Also has a K&N filter with a chrome intake pipe.
Also a set of cheap-o fog lights (which i did mount correctly with some
For audio I have a Kenwood head unit with 2x Rockford Fosgate P1 12''
speakers in a hand built box powered by a 1200w Sony amp.
Future plans: If anyone ever makes a Supercharger for the 4.7 ill buy that right up.
But until then I plan on new cams and maybe some other small things. If the
engine blows I plan on dropping in an old school crate hemi, super charged
with a carburetor forget EFI haha
CAT Diesel 3116: Cold, Smokey Start-up "The Beast"
*** Comments disabled ***
I know that cranking it that hard is bad, but it won't start in the cold if
I don't. I CANNOT USE ETHER or starting fluid in this engine because it is
equipped with an intake heater grid, though it is malfunctioning.
This 1992 GMC Topkick Tractor is not in regular service anymore, but is a
backup for another truck used for disaster response, so it must be
maintained. Part of that maintenance routine is starting it and driving it
on a 50 mile route once a month to keep everything lubricated properly and
the batteries charged and exercised..
Because the old Caterpillar 3116TA motor in it does not have Glow Plugs,
and the intake heater does not work properly, it is very hard to start in
cold weather. Today was some of the coldest we've had in a while, and the
coldest in which I've ever tried to start this truck, so I decided I'd make
a video of it.

2014 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel Review and Road Test
Join me as I drive the 2014 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel, the only diesel 1/2-ton
pickup truck sold in America. In perhaps the biggest shake up in this
high-volume and highly competitive segment, Chrysler jammed a 3.0L turbo diesel V6 under the RAM's hood and mated
it to a ZF 8-Speed automatic to create the best towing rig for the money.
FORD Diesel ~6.0L & 7.3L~ Troubleshoot Hard or Won't Start Problems
This video is a fairly comprehensive troubleshooting diagnostic walk
through for a starting issue on a FORD Powerstroke Diesel engine.
~Truck Won't Start?
~Truck Takes a Long Time to Start?
~Crank No Start?
~Hard/No Start When Hot?
~Hard/No Start When Cold?
The engine used as example in the video is a 6.0L, but the same principals
and techniques apply to the 7.3L and even the 6.4L and 6.7L.

In the video I show all the steps then take it on a top speed run to see

Torque Converter Selection - Summit Racing Quick Flicks
What does a torque converter do? A torque converter is a fluid coupling
device that transfers power from engine to transmission and multiply the
torque being created by the engine.
There are three major components that make up a torque converter.
The Fluid Impeller is the only part of the torque converter that is
physically attached to the engine. The impeller creates fluid motion within
the converter to create a transfer of power. The Stator redirects fluid
flow towards the impeller. The Turbine Assembly transfers the motion
between the engine and the transmission. Another important aspect to
understand is Stall Speed = RPM when the engine sends all available power
to the transmission.
Torque converters have 2 different types of stalls that they can produce.
The 1st type is Foot Brake Stall. Foot break Stall is an inaccurate way to
measure torque converter stall.
Flash stall is the actual stall of the torque converter. Flash stall is
always listed in range which is determined by different attributes such
vehicle weight, gear ratio and tire size. The flash stall rating is the
only true and most accurate stall rating that you will find on a torque
A few rules of thumb to take from this video are: First select a converter
that stalls at 500 RPM higher than the camshaft. Converters installed in a
big block engine usually stall 300 RPM higher than a small block. Choose a
converter that will stall below the highway cruise RPM. For additional
