    I remodeled a house for that lady last summer.
  3. 2011 cummins problem

    I thought that may be the problem also because we changed fuel filter's twice and there was slime on them. So I had the mechanic pull the tank, it was clean inside, and at the same time we changed the fuel pump. I thought we had it for a week or so and then it started doing it again.
  4. 2011 cummins problem

    I have a 2011 dodge one ton dually, Cummins, with 165,000 miles on it. Sometimes when I am driving it seems like the truck stalls and if I take my foot off the gas and immediately accelerate and everything seems perfect. It happened the first few times when I was going 80 mph on the freeway and like I said, it only last a second or two. So I had my engine breather filter and fuel filters replaced. Two days later it happened again at 40 mph. Does anybody have any ideas what's going on. Its my main workhorse and I have been working 2 hours from home on a job and I am not sure if I can trust it. Its at the dealer right now and they are looking into what could be going on.
  5. 2011 cummins problem

    Interesting story but this is not the case here. I have my key fob and one key on my key ring. It doesn't shut off, it just stalls out for a few seconds and then takes off like there nothing wrong (almost always after I back off the throttle and then accelerate again). Sometimes it really stalls, feels like you pulled the choke on a gas engine. Once in a great while it keeps stalling until I pull over and shut the truck off. I can immediately restart the truck and everything is fine. Sometimes for several hundred miles, sometimes it may do it again within a few miles. Thanks for everybody's thoughts, and prayers would be appreciated. Todd
  6. 2011 cummins problem

    I still am having problems. I can't bring myself to throwing more money at it until I find more info about the problem. The truck hesitates or stalls only randomly, when it does its almost always on acceleration. I would love to figure this out but have drawn a blank with many mechanics.
  7. I wanted to mount my big buck but I wasn't sure where to put my legs.

    When my son was in high school, he and another boy had to do a speech. It was based on the similarities of your "Uranus" and "Your anus". One of the funniest videos I ever saw.

  14. My Pilothouse oil painting

    Looks cool. The only way I can paint is if I can use a spray gun and then everything should by covered that don't need to be painted
  15. I am in the market for a new work truck before the end of the year. I would like a 4x4 one ton dually crew cab with a dump box, plus a goose neck ball for towing my job trailers, of course a Dodge. I have been working with 2 local body building shops and they both are having a hard time with the dump box and a goose neck. Has anyone done this before? Thanks, Todd
  16. 2011 cummins problem

    I am still having problems after many attempts to fix. I will start from the beginning. I thought it was bad fuel and then it started happening again. It seems "on occasion" when I let off the gas and then accelerate it wants to stall or hesitate, sometimes it feels like when you would pull the choke on a gas engine. Some times it won't come out of that until you pull over and shut the truck, then you can immediately start the truck and it will take off perfectly. Sometimes it will do again right away and other times I could drive for 200 miles. This went on for weeks and was getting worse, then a code came up and they said it was my turbo. I replaced the turbo, ($3,000) and it seemed much better but it still has a slight hesitation, always after I back off of the gas and then accelerate. It don't have the power it normally does neither. So then we replaced the fuel pump in the tank,($600) the tank was spotless inside. The truck again seemed to run better and more power. Then it started to do the same thing, it hesitates after you back off and then accelerate. None of these things will throw a code. My mechanic found away with I think by pumping the brake to display code faults. Several popped up and one of them is the computer ($1,850) . I am nervous on spending this because we are not sure that's the problem. I had planned on getting a new truck at the end of the year for tax purposes but I hate sticking more into the truck, but I cannot sell it knowing there is a problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Todd B
  17. 1000 post

    When I made my last post on ID of the tool I realized that I am at 1000 post. Don't seem possible, big thanks to GTK and the support crew for this site. I have made several friends through this site and don't know what I would do without it at times. In fact I am sitting next to my mom in the ICU right now. We had to make the decision today to take her off life support. It is exactly what she wanted and I am at peace with my decision. She is in gods hands now.

    Thanks for all of thoughts & prayers, Mom went to meet Dad at the pearly gates Tuesday morning.
  19. Cracked Block.. ouch!

    For that kind of money you can probably buy an entire parts truck with an engine in it for that kind of money. Much closer to your location
  20. Cracked Block.. ouch!

    I have a few extra 218's but I would think there would be lots of these closer to you. Good luck
  21. The tool ID test

    Two things I noticed. The little blue end is made to slide up and down. And there is a razor blade laying on the shop table. I believe it is holder upper thingy to adjust something for correct placement

    Tuesday I called her and I could immediately here it in her voice. She was having a stroke so I hung up and called 911. I followed the ambulance in the driveway and they transported her to the hospital than onto a bigger hospital. Thursday night they took part of her scull off to help with the blood and swelling. I think she new then that she wasn't going to come out of it. My mom is 77 and can out work most men making firewood. Takes care of her own land and goes dancing at least once a week, usually polkas and don't miss a dance the entire time. Its tough to see her so helpless, but she has preached to us kids for 50 years that she never wants to be in this state. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers, it might've a long night
