Customer Question
Got a 2010 Dodge...

Got a 2010 Dodge Ram that has 16 plugs it's a 4.7 ...need to know if I can use the earlier type piston which is a flat top and get away with it as far as having decent compressions well as not having computer problems ? Need to know will I up or lower the compression and by how much ? The only reason I'm doing this is to put a fire out ....I got a pissed customer n machine shop didn't come thru but I have a perfect bottom which is the same except for the pistons just need confirmation if it'll fly or why it will not

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made.

i want to help resolve your issue . Follow-ups are free after ratings,give me a few minutes to gather some info on your issue

i dont think you will have compression issue but i think you would have efficient burn issue since that piston is designed to mix the fuel and air with the indention in the pistons if is two much of difference you will be setting rich bank codes

beacuse it will need to dump more fuel to get the power it is expecting to get

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
