Yesterday I took my truck to have the suspension checked out and found that I have an issue with the driveshaft. It turns out that it is defective. That has uncovered a new flaw in the driveline and it was unexpected. The problems I am having today are unusual. My truck has run for 2 straight years and 300,000 miles without any issues.

These trucks of today can run up to a million miles on one engine and all on standard monthly maintenance. Diesel is better than gasoline in this aspect. The compression of the sparks created in a diesel combustion engine are more lubricated than a gasoline engine and the maintenance is usually less.
