I put a heater core in a 2018 Ram with a Cummins diesel yesterday, it had low heater temperature output. It paid 4.8hrs and I was in it 6.8 so I was now working quickly... it had weather tech floor mats, and I put them back in like any OE mat...
Thankfully I was driving when it went full throttle in the parking lot while in drive.
about pooped my pants, tried to put in neutral but hit reverse, now iam going backwards, hit drive again, tried to shut it off but can’t since iam in gear, so grabbed the floor mat and ripped it up off the floor and creeped my way out to a larger parking area to see what was going on.. lesson learned, install the front of these large mats first. Go under gas pedal and forward, then slide back and hook the clips in carpet...verify front is below gas pedal LoL..
It could have been a real bad day it happened in the shop and a unsuspecting porter or cashier was driving! Thanks God
You can't cure stupid. Or lazy. Don't waste your time trying. Just revel in the fact that you're not him.Co-workers asks for my help. Ok, fortunately the wiring issues he’s dealing with, I just went thru a few weeks back.
So I re-research it, print both schematics, hand write for him the new translated and correct connector pin outs. Here you go, this worked fir me, please give me back the documents when your done? Ok he says thanks a lot.
Later I see him with a different nicely labeled connector in his hands, how did it go I ask ?
He tells me Frank, another tech gave him this labeled connector and Frank says he wired it this way!
ok, I ask to see it and I compare it to my wiring... I find it’s pined out wrong, 2 circuits mis-wired.....see this is wrong!
So guess how he wires it up ?
complete wast of my time, then after he’s soldered and wired this circuit for the 3 time, he wants to keep my schematic cause apparently it the only one that works..
Speaking of wasting your time, I am about to pull the trigger on the 34 gallon tank upgrade you spent the time to research for me. So, I appreciate your efforts and you didn’t waste yourself time for me!

This is the old man in me rant...
On a lot of the forums I am on the most recent trend is for someone to make a post that is just a link to their youtube video. I am on a forum because I want to read about and talk about something, not just watch your youtube video. If I wanted to watch your youtube video I would go to youtube. Just seems like people trying to get other people to watch their youtube videos and not really contributing anything to the site.
That's it for my grumpy old man, trivial complaint rant today....
