1995 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.

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."

I noticed the sticker above the drivers side window said next service due at 11200 miles. After having the oil changed, I was surprised to hear from the mechanic that the oil was still pretty decent but, I insisted on the change anyways and all ...
