  1. New member and owner of 2014 R/T

    Welcome aboard, hope it's as good to you as mine had been to me.
  2. Thanks for the update. Was it pricey? Did it break under stress?
  3. Still waiting for his McDonald's order???
  4. Transmission knowledge

    Make sure it says "will fit" as opposed to "should fit"...CYA.
  5. Taking a guess here, but if you convert from LED to incandescent I believe you need to use a converter to get more power, or do some rewiring for more current (or vice versa) . That was one of the requirements when I added my trailer wiring harness and if you do a search on "Tail light converting LED to incandescent" it showed its not just a plug in type of change. Looks like more work than I'd be willing to take on. Plus LED's should last longer. I personally hate electrical work so converting would not be an option for me.
  6. Caliper Bracket Craziness

    Take the time to go somewhere (semi) local to you and get it figured out right there and then. My feeling, brakes are a pretty important part and I want to make sure I get the right quality part that I need. Like you said, you've already spent over 10 hours trying to figure out the wrong part, you've spent more money on your time than you should. Good luck.
  7. I've been lurking for 3 years!

    Welcome aboard... no longer just a lurker.

    First of all... don't know why my first post came up twice. As far as warranty, register on the Dodge site and you'll see an option for warranties. Otherwise, ask Mr. Google.

    Welcome. Do the regular maintenance and most cars will do well for you OR buy an extended warranty and not worry about it... peace of mind and good choices out there.

  11. Air noise buffeting

    Are you referring to the thumping sound when you roll your back windows down a bit? And not trying to be mean, but did you really go back to the dealer for this? Here's a full explanation of that deafening sound if you're interested. It's all physics... https://jalopnik.com/why-do-slightly-opened-car-windows-make-that-awful-soun-1447498738
  12. radiator cap hose

    Head gasket problems in the past and some additive added to try to fix. Now a bigger issue at a higher expense... if it's even worth it. Good luck and let us know the findings.
  13. Have you tried calling uconnect directly? When I had a couple of issues they walked me through a couple of steps that fixed my problem. I assume they have part numbers too if needed. They were great. https://www.driveuconnect.com/contact-us.html
  14. radiator cap hose

    Did you use an additive at some point? Like a stop leak fluid? Those usually have a metal look to them and it gets everywhere (I used it before). Otherwise you could have a broken part that is going through the cooling system. First suspect would be the thermostat. I would start with a full flush and take a look at the thermostat... and probably replace. Then get it up to normal temp, turn the car off and try to listen for a hiss. If it still overheats, run your other tests or get it tested before (hopefully) the engine has major problems. When this happened to my beamer, it was a warped head... when it happened to my Ford, it was a metal T connector that was literally falling apart. One was an $11 fix, the other an $1100 fix.
  15. Alternator died

    I am going to assume that was installed(?). How much was the part itself?
