1992 Dodge D150 Problems

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

A condition may develop where the fuel gauge reads empty with too much fuel still in the fuel tank. Our technicians tell us that installing a new wire harness that provides a common ground for the fuel gauge and sending should correct this issue.

Brakes -- Verified

Vehicles equipped with 12" diameter rear brakes may encounter premature rear brake shoe wear. If it is found that the brake system is functioning as designed the repair would be to replace the affected brake shoes with revised parts.

Drive Train -- Verified

Pinched or restricted transmission oil cooler lines can cause transmission failure due to lack of lubrication. Our technicians recommend complete inspection of the transmission cooler and lines if this type of failure is noted.

Engine -- Verified

Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. Over time this can lead to symptoms varying from light ticking to knocking noises. Performing a fuel injector cleaning procedure can often help the condition by removing some of the piston top deposits.

Engine -- Verified

Oil leaks from the valve cover gaskets, timing cover gasket, distributor o-ring, and rear main seal area are common. The leak at the rear main seal area is generally not the seal itself but the bearing cap to the engine block seal. An oil leak could also be internal to the distributor, if oil is found inside the distributor then the distributor should be replaced.

1992 Dodge D150 Reviews

When my father-in-law passed away my wife bought his 1992 Dodge D-150. It is an LE model with A/C, automatic, 3.9lt. V6. I have driven the truck for the last 10 years without any major issues. At 203,000 mile my engine suffered a major catastrophic failure. I replaced it with a remanufactured 3.9lt and it still services me without fail. I have never had issues with the brakes, A/C, electrical system, suspension, or exhust. They simply do not build them to last like they did years ago. The original paint job faded and peeled and was redone by Dodge within two years of my father-in-law owing it, it has lasted ever since. Working on it is a pleasure as there is plenty of room under the hood and under the body. One reoccuring problem I had (before engine replacement) was the distributor shaft fit into a bushing in the oil pump that over time became out of round and would cause the rotor to self distruct as well as the dist. cap. I had to replace the distributor as well as the bushing. Dodge should have issued a recall rather than a no cost to them advisory.

great truck over 166,000 miles still runs like new
