<Rawze> the top of the old filter seal will look like it has craters and pot-holes in it if the flange was dirty when it was installed last.
<Rawze> neglected and half-arssed repairs and services... that is what ppl get then wonder later on why they have troubles. - No one at these shops cares any more.
<Rawze> everyone with bad habbits, lazy, in a hurry, and greedy for money over doing a good job.

<smorgan87> Buddy shuts the truck off, walks inside, gets a burger comes out and the damn batteries have died and are losing power by .1 ever minute.
<smorgan87> You would know the freightshaker parts house closed 30 minutes prior. So i couldnt get some replacements over to him.
<smorgan87> Any idea what would cause 6- 6 month old batteries to drain that fast on a 15 pornstar
<Rawze> bad diodes in alternator?. ECM not fully shutting down?. Bad wiring?. Bad starter or other relay?. - could be anything.
<Rawze> hsut truck off, pull all battery cables, start checking amperage for each cable while truck is shut off.
<Rawze> btw: a qualcomm unit can also cause battery drain if it is acting up.
<smorgan87> No qualcom or anything like that. Ill have him bring the truck to the house so we can check each cable for amp draw.
<snailexpress> Bad grounding or relay
<snailexpress> Each battery 130 amp x hour
<snailexpress> 4 batteries 520 amp x hour
<snailexpress> To drain them in 30 min current should be 1000 amp
<smorgan87> Best we can tell one battery shorted internally and offed the rest of em. Got new ones on their way now.
<smorgan87> What i get for buying 50$ batteries i rekon. They dont always work.
<Evotrucker> lol parked my truck cuz of the shitty spot market rates and i went to turn it on for a little while. my batteries died out on me.... Fudge... any recommendation?
<smorgan87> Well i usually buy fleetrite brand at the international dealer parts house. These were alliance from freightshaker.
<tree98> Deka makes a good battery, they also sell them under the name federated. They have a 2 or maybe it's 3 year NON pro rated Warrenty

<Class_8> Cummins isx shutting down when put into 4th gear. Anyone know what could be causing this?? Thanks
