problem #2

Nov 132014

1500 Longhorn Hemi V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,000 miles


While elk hunting at about 4,500 ft. elev. the weather turned cold - down to -6F, highs were about +23F. pick up started using about twice as much gas as in the same terrain in summer. I was in 4x4 low range most of the time The problem continued for about 250 miles when it warmed up to 35F. while driving home. Until it warmred up the PU didn't seem to shift right. Has anyone else had problems with gas mileage in cold weather?

1500 3.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,000 miles

My gas mileage was around 18 mpg around town and 22 on the highway.

My mileage now is around 15.5 around town and about 18 on the highway.

When you step on the gas the truck bogs down, until to push harder or let off. When accelerating on the highway you to have to push the gas down and then push it some more to get response.

I took it to the garage and was told there is nothing wrong. Checks just fine.

There is a major change in the way the truck runs and performs.
