Noone here has had luck with the optimas. That is your problem. Get rid of them before you damage ficm, alternator, and injectors.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

Unfortunately had to Sell my ......2004 KR CC SWB FX4 - Edge insight cts, blue spring upgrade, updated HFCM drain plug, XDP coolant filter, CAT EC-1 rated coolant, Custom Diesel EGR delete, CAT delete, Rotella T6

That I'm not sure about that, i'm about to change mine. I' ve got the walmart batteries in mine right now, they are five years old. I bought it with those, I might go back with the same. Alot of guys are saying duralast gold, thats a bit pricey.

I use duralast golds from AZ, I've had really good luck with them in all my vehicles.
