I don't know if we missed this or not. This was back in 2013 that they built engine number 2,000,000 for Dodge Ram PickUps. It is a video that follows the engine through it's assembly. I think it is pretty cool to watch!

Ive had 2 diagnostics done at the same shop. Both mis diagnosed. Im to the sum of about $2000 in parts. I bought the truck in April from Victory Auto Sales. They told me it had a new High pressure oil pump, fuel injectors and glow plugs. when first starting up it started fine but smoked a little for a minute or two and knowing nothing about diesels at the time, I was told that it was normal for the 7.3 to do that when it first starts up. So we test drove it got back and the smoke was gone. Signed the papers gave them money, started right back up and drove home. Smoked like that for about a week and a half when it would start hesitating at a little over 2000 rpm's. and a little hiccup every 50 miles or so. It eventually got to the point where it would crank forever then run like crap. I then had it towed to the shop for a diagnostic. I paid $90 to find out my ICP sensor and IPR valve needed replaced. I got the parts from them and went to replace them when I found out that they were both brand new. I replaced them anyways, and my truck still ran the exact same, when i noticed I wasn't getting the oil pressure when starting and my hpop was low. I went and bought a melling m208 lpop and installed that. my truck started right up i went on a 30 minute drive, drove fine. parked it started right up the next morning so i drove to work. smoked a little and hesitated, pulled over turned it of, started it right back up drove the rest of the way no problems. Got off work started right up, pulled out onto the road and it quit running. once again had it towed back to the shop for yet ANOTHER diagnostic, and was told injectors buzzed and they were good, but my IDM was bad. I bought one from a buddy out of his running truck, and threw it in there. started up but ran like crap. I checked the UVCH and injector harnesses. at first when that was done it would not start. The next day it started and it sounds like its running on 4 or less injectors. It will not rev past 1500 and then it kicks from there to zero instantly. every now and then it revs to about 2200 then does the same. CEL comes on sometimes for a second then goes right away. Runs worse that it did before i checked the UVCH. Im running into brick walls face first with this truck. Does anyone here know a good 7.3 mechanic thats accurate with the diagnostic, or is there anyone here that may want to come look and help? I have no problem paying someone for an accurate diagnostic I really need help. PM me for my phone number. Any and all help is very much appreciated. Thanks
