I bought my 5.9 with 65k for $5k, no pictures in ad, called and they texted me some. I bought sight unseen and couldn't be happier with it!

All I can figure is their machine is cailbrated for V8s being a 4.7L or 5.7L which I think both take 6 quarts.

And/or not changing the filter and using the metered amount.

Either way is just...

Well, I didn't expect this to take a turn on good oil versus bad oil, but I can say I've used Pennzoil, Valvoline, and Quaker State oil in over 30 cars over 40 years and never had any engine problem...

Forgot to mention, it idles noticeably smoother now, and highway-speed oil pressure went up from around 38 psi to just above 45 psi.

Hey guys!

So, I bought this 1-owner 5.9 Limited with 65,000 miles from the same dealership that sold it new and serviced it regularly for the previous owner. The purchase came with lifetime free...

Yeah, I guess ATC is not for me. In the cold winters here I set the temp control to high heat and leave it there, then adjust the manual blower as needed, usually full high fan til...

I like the advice of going to lock in 4 Low off-road, this makes good sense. I've wondered whether this would be better or worse for the transmission. I still need to add an aux cooler to the 5.9.

Thanks Timo!

It would be nice if the fluid capacity for the TC was more than 2.5 pints, it doesn't seem like enough to do the job properly for a 30K maintenance interval. I'm thinking 15K should...

What was your maintenance interval/procedure for that?

Fortunately, there is a gasket between the plate and the bracket, otherwise this might have been more of a pain to fix.

Well, maybe it's not the double cardan joint after all.

I can really get it to make the noise with input into the rear driveshaft near the t-case. Sounds like a bushing or body creak.

Is this supposed to be a grease fitting?

I can't find this on mine.

My guess is the joint got dried out from power washing underneath numerous times this winter.
