1993 Dodge D350 Problems
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.
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.
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.
Moderate to severe engine damage may result from using non-DaimlerChrysler approved oil filters. Our technicians tell us that the neoprene compounds used in the manufacture of the unapproved filters may separate from the filter and lodge in the piston cooling nozzle blocking the oil spray from the affected nozzles.
1993 Dodge D350 Reviews
This has been an outstanding vehicle for me. I have 132,000 miles on it. The only problems I have is some sort of short with the A/C and power windows. If it wasn't for my rear sliding windows and wing vents, hot days would be unbearable. Other than that, I don't plan to ever buy another vehicle. I have owned this truck for 7 years and have traveled Florida to New York and found it to be more comfortable than any car I have rented or owned.
