Engine overheating can result from coolant leaks which are commonly found at the thermostat housing gasket, water pump, heater return tube O-ring at the water pump, intake manifold gasket, and timing cover gasket. Our technicians recommend a complete inspection of the cooling system after any repairs are made to be sure there are no other leaks.

show me how to install a 1994 dodge pick-up truck wheel bushing

This is my first car, i bought it off of its original owners, with 93K on it, it is 3 years latter and now has 117000 miles, and the AC is out, the paint on the canape is peeling, my breaks have blown, it has had a coolant and oil leak...and the steering is off by about 3-5 degrees. but! it has never left me stranded, even when my back brakes blew a leak and emptied my break fluid i could still stop it, it would run cool with out coolant. in short it has done every thing i have asked it to with out hesitation. and the response from the pedals is amazing. its only 2WD but i have passed up people stuck in snow and ice in newer 4WD rams. I LOVE this truck, and i would not trade it for the world

My papaw got this truck for me and we only had 1 tranny problem bad gear, my floor leaks and i dont like that but besides that runs like a charm oh the paint sucks though.
