Re: Since we are doing car questions...

Everything don posts is to trigger an argument, or to confirm a belief he grew up with and is trying desperately to hang on to, in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. The world is moving on, something I will admit I'm not thrilled about either, but unlike don/pops, they are the same person, you know that right, I try and learn about what's new, not always successfully, or happily, but I'm open to it, whereas don/pops is stuck in leave it to beaver/mayberry land.

More junk today. Another 5.7 Hemi eats a cam. 140k on the clock, so they did good with this one. Lol

P0303 - intake valve barely opening.

Pretty sad for a roller cam motor.

Wow, is that "normal" or is this one of those people who never change oil and beat the truck?

I don’t know details as to exactly why or what years and such, but it is a very common issue with them. You want to be sure and swap coils and plugs around on them when diagnosing misfire codes on them before just throwing a coil on them. We’ve seen quite a few in recent years. I don’t kind the “HEMI” performance very impressive, but the exhaust has a nice sound. :)

Re: Since we are doing car questions...

Blaine- The artist formerly known as Plumber Crack "(OFMC)" /

I haven’t had the joy of doing a cam and lifters in one yet. Every one we’ve seen so far the customer declined, probably traded them in for another piece of shit.

Still waiting to hear back from this guy. I’m pushing for a jasper engine. We’ll see.

Re: Since we are doing car questions...

My 5.7 was diagnosed to have a bad cam but ended up being exhaust bolts broke..was told that is more common than cam going bad

Re: Since we are doing car questions...

Blaine- The artist formerly known as Plumber Crack "(OFMC)" /

I don’t see how or why someone would confuse one for the other. They are two totally different issues, however they are both very common issues with the 5.7.

This one actually happens to have both problems.

Might have both on mine..after the repair quote it got set aside and used when needed...have been thinking of trading in on a new prius for my wife to dump it ..only has 78000 on it (edited)

Re: Since we are doing car questions...

Cam's not a major problem. Pretty easy to replace. Motor was probably abused or bad oil. Run 5W30 Castrol syntec and there'll be a lot less problems.

Re: Since we are doing car questions...

If talking on mine Don the oil was changed regularly..mobile 1 synthetic 5 30...blaine they were going on the tic when first started as being can ...then came up with 3 exhaust bolts broke..i think it does have cam probs too..never was abused but used for it's intent of pulling the camper..now my 300 thousand mile vortec still does what it has done all it's life..pulls the camper again and goes anywhere you want...

Re: Since we are doing car questions...

Umm, Don, cams don’t always come out as quick as when u were a child. That’s why people decline the repair because it’s not cheap. Can’t just Q tip this issue away. Aerostar prolly ain’t got cams, just little elves that open and close valves as necessary.

Re: Since we are doing car questions...

Chevy slapped Vortec badge everywhere so Pops in America think they really got somethin’. Better engines than hemis tho I suppose.

So what are you trying to smart off about now dipshit???..it says vortec so thats what it is called..not sure what you think you are educated in more than others but your stupidity is showing.

Re: Since we are doing car questions...

I can hear your arteries hardening. Atherosclerosis Pops. Go back to sleep.

Re: Since we are doing car questions...

Pop's proving my point. Proper care of oil changes with GOOD oil and they'll last just fine,probably.

I would hate to tell you the tales of engine abuse I've seen in my life. People like Blaine that care nothing for filters.LOL!

JK Blaine.......... I know you must feel differently about good and proper changing of oil and trans filters. I hope so, anyway.

A restricted fuel filter will pop a P0171/P0174 with freeze frame data showing that the lean condition occurred at high rpm and loads Long before it actually causes a drivability concern. Big deal.

Dude decided not to fix his hemi, as expected. @$4000 to replace cam and lifters, $7000 for a jasper.

I learned from the jasper rep that it’s actually the lifter roller that fails on the hemi, which in turn eats the cam. He said the use Hellcat lifters in their reman hemis.

Heads and oil pan must be removed to do the cam and lifters. Roughly 14hrs labor.

Don just cant wrap his head around a pump that reaches a specific pressure then returns the excess fuel into the tank. The filter could be completely plugged and the pump is just gonna go to the specific pressure then spew the fuel back into the tank.

Don doesn’t understand how his own asshole works.

You don't understand. The fuel DOESN'T return in the kind we're talking about. That's why it's called a RETURNLESS system.

Re: Since we are doing car questions...

Blaine- The artist formerly known as Plumber Crack "(OFMC)" /

Actually it’s called the bypass, but it does “return” into the tank, it just happens internally.

That's in case of over-pressure. Safety release at or near the pump, not at the returnless rail.

The fuel rail has nothing to do with an in tank pump and return.

Re: Since we are doing car questions...

Oh? You're saying it does happen at the rail? Where's the line then?
