1994 Dodge Ram 1500 Problems

Engine oil leaks at distributor may be misdiagnosed

On the 3.9L V6 and 5.9L V8 the engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from the intake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.

HVAC Air Flow Switching to Defrost When Accelerating

The AC/heater (HVAC) system may unexpectedly switch to the defrost mode when accelerating. This system is operated by engine vacuum and should be inspected for any vacuum leaks if this problem develops.  There is also a revised vacuum check valve available to address this concern.

Increased Oil Consumption Due to Intake Manifold Gasket Leak

On 3.9L V6 and 5.9L V8 engines, the intake manifold gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.

1994 Dodge Ram 1500 Recalls

Chrysler Recalls 1994-1999 Dodge Rams Due to Corrosion on the Secondary Hood Latch

Chrysler has recalled certain 1994-1999 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models in areas that use road salt because corrosion of the return spring on the hood secondary latch could cause the mechanism to bind in the "release position." This may cause the hood to open unexpectedly. Dealers will replace the secondary hood latch.

Chrysler Recalls 1994-1996 Dodge Rams Due to Defective Throttle Cable

Chrysler has recalled certain 1994-1996 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models equipped with Diesel engines because the throttle cable could unravel (fray) or break, which may cause a loss of throttle control. A throttle that does not return to idle may lead to unexpected acceleration. Dealers will inspect and replace the throttle cable and upper bell crank lever.

Chrysler Recalls 1994-1996 Dodge Rams Due to Overheating Ignition Switch and Wiring

Chrysler has recalled certain 1994-1996 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 light duty pickup trucks because they were built with an ignition switch and wiring that may overheat. Dealers will install a relay and overlay harness.
