1994 Dodge Ram 1500 Problems

Worn or Mis-Indexed Distributor Shaft Can Cause Surging/Bucking on Acceleration

A surging or bucking during acceleration can be caused if the distributor is moved or mis-indexed. This is a result of the cam and crank position sensors being out of synchronization. Wear of the oil pump drive gear can cause similar symptoms because it allows excessive free play in the distributor drive. The distributor drive gear and bushing should be replaced if the rotor tip moves back-and-forth more than 3/16th of an inch when checking drive gear free play.

Coolant Loss and Engine Overheating

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.

Rerouting Ignition Coil/Spark Plug Wires Can Solve Misfire/Surge Problems

On the 3.9L V6 and 5.2L V8, rerouting the ignition coil wire and spark plug wires can help solve a misfire and/or surge problem that occurs at approximately 45 mph. A service bulletin was published that outlines the specifics of the repair. It states the rerouting procedure should be performed before other repairs are done for misfires, surging or spark knock.

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 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.
