I posted that the first page of this discussion……GREAT article man! Thank you for posting!
Now this is directly in your article from Dodge:
"If your baby has been hibernating for a while, without a start, then the oil might gradually concede to gravity and slide down to low spots or into the oil pan. That leaves some high-stress surfaces that are metal on metal. "
I don't know man, MXS67454 is pretty smart, smarter than Dodge I'm sure and he says this doesn't happen. LOL. SARCASM ALERT!
Again, thank you posting this great tip.
If priming is not advised then why does it come recommended right from dodge? Lol.Still quite enough oil to provide suitable lubrication upon a cold start. "Priming" via the slow cranking of the engine via the starter is actually ill advised. There's a reason the most common startup has the engine spun up to around 1K RPMs right after start. This ensures the creation of the hydrodynamic bearing (created from the oil present) and the quick prime of the oil pump and subsequent rapid flow of oil.
It’s posted on dodge garage.Well on the priming issue Dodge doesn't say anything on it either way and what we are doing is actually the Flooded Engine procedure listed in the Owner's Manual.
Still think it's not a bad idea coming out of storage.
