That's pretty weak for a sarcastic champ like you.

That's like saying I am jealous of the Taliban riding around in toyotas

No thanks. There is no need to. You had a tundra. You bought a Ram because it has more bells and whistles and the Tundra didn't offer any significant improvements to your liking. Now you love your Ram. We get it. We all get it.

apparently you didn't read what I wrote, I said I was kinda tundra shopping since I thought I had a major issue with this truck. It had nothing to do with bells and whistles.

anyway, it doesn't matter, drive on. see ya around

nah, not bent at all...sacarsim is sometimes a little hard to pick up on the net and if you weren't in the mood to BS about it, I was just going to drop it, no big deal at all.

anyway, I had a lake of oil underneath my air filter in the air intake box which also ran down the inner fender of the truck under the air box. I found it while doing some cleaning with the hood up.

I thought, PHUCK, oil blow by, cylinder must be toast or something. I have to admit I thought, ok shit here we go fist problem and it's a major one.

so I dropped it off at the dealer I bought it from that also does all my maintenance. They had it for a day or so.

in the meantime, I was like phuck this if they have to gut the engine, I am dumping it and buying a platinum or limited tundra and calling the "american" truck experiment done with. so I started looking around and the resale on the ram was actually better than I thought so I was lining up a plat tundra mag grey for a plan B.

so I go back to the dealer and they tell me it's not oil blow by and there is nothing at all wrong with the truck. So my next question was WTF then?

It turns out, if you fill the engine oil too fast it will blow into one of the EGR or PCV vents (not sure which one is connected to this motor and the airbox) which is vented into the airbox and it goes in there. They said they see a drop here or there sometimes but mine was pretty bad. So they said they fill the oil up with a oil gun when they fill and the guy ****ed it up. They cleaned everything up nicely and said it would be fine.

I never thought something like that could happen, but I don't know all the plumbing of the hemi as it's my first one.

what a pain in the ass, just becuase some grease monkey can't pay attention.

so since it didn't blow up yet and I didn't buy another tundra yet, you'll just have to listen to my BS a little longer LOL

I really don't like the having to restart deal. But it was on my truck and was still cheaper than the truck at the other dealer without it.

Eventually I will upgrade to an aftermarket unit, but till then I just deal with it.

Mine was installed by the dealer but it's not a Toyota brand starter, maybe that's why it's different.
