2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Problems

Cam Sensor Failure Causing no Start or Stalling

On the 3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8 the camshaft position sensor may fail and cause the engine to crank but not start or it can cause intermittent stalling. A failed camshaft sensor will require replacement.

Increased Oil Consumption Due to Intake Manifold Plenum 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.

Multiple Coolant Leaks

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.

2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Recalls

Chrysler Recalls 1998-2003 Dodge Rams Due to Short Circuit in ABS Control Module Connector

Chrysler has recalled certain 1998-2003 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models equipped with four-wheel ABS because aftermarket batteries may leak electrolyte onto the ABS control module connector, which can compromise the sealing integrity. This may allow development of a short circuit in the connector, which could eventually lead to a fire. Dealers will inspect the ABS control module connector for electrolyte damage and replace it if necessary.

Chrysler Recalls 2000-2002 Dodge Rams Due to Excessive Tire Load Capacity

Chrysler has recalled certain 2000-2002 Dodge Ram 1500 models equipped with the snow plow preparation package because the tires may have gross axle weight ratings that slightly exceed the maximum tire load capacity. Dealers will provide replacement tires to meet the load carrying capacity and accommodate the addition of a commercially available snow plow and hardware.
