    Ideal coolant temperature

    The temperature is set mostly by the thermostat, I think... Peace.

    Oil leak can't locate source

    i just hand tighten and then bump the ratchet just a bit, sounds like you might be over tightening it and or their is a slight crack at the threads and that is where it is leaking past the o ring. also i always just use mopar oil filters..why use anything different????

    CEL....no code reader

    Which is utterly stupid, considering we have a computer display right in front of us. I second the "go to any auto DIY shop, or buy a code reader on Amazon" sentiment.

    CEL....no code reader

    Is it possible to get the codes with out a reader. My 2014 ram van still allows the key dance method. Hank

    Over cooling maybe?

    So, I did it. Wasn't bad at all. Dropped the pan and got exactly 5.5 quarts out like the manual says. I was surprised because I have heard so many people say that they got alot more out. Changed the filter, cleaned the magnet, cleaned the pan, put rtv on it. Bolted it back up. Ended up putting 6 quarts in. That got me to 20mm at 110 degrees F. Sorry that this thread turned into something totally different though. I appreciate the advice.

    P0303 after hot restart only.

    I want to preface... I'm not a mechanic. Why not just replace those wires rather than using the repaired ones? Eliminate the easy stuff. At least you'll know for sure if they are the problem. Maybe there is some sort of damage that you can't see, but acts up when hot after a restart. It seems to me that these new cars have tons of sensors and who knows when those sensors talk to the ECM. Maybe a hot restart alerts the computer to a problem, and it goes into limp mode. Clearly I don't know what your problem is. Just trying to help. Peace.

    I'd be replacing those wires that got hot an melted. Related? Quite possibly. Fix the known problem.
