2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Problems
Some vehicles may develop a musty odor coming from the HVAC system, Dodge has issued a cleaner/disinfectant and a coating for the evaporator designed to inhibit bacterial growth.
If a Check Engine Light illuminates indicating leak detection pump (LDP) failure, the cause is often pinched or disconnected vacuum lines to the pump. Vacuum lines should be inspected before replacing the leak detection pump. Contamination (carbon or debris) in the pump can cause failure and any hoses should be cleared before a new pump is installed.
On some models a void in the rear window seal may cause a water leak. Water may be present on or under the carpet. The seal will need to be replaced if that is the source.
If the vehicle will not shift into, or out of four wheel drive, and the "Serv 4WD" warning light is illuminated, the front axle disconnect actuator may need replacement and a power module (TIPM) may need a software update.

2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Reviews
Love how it looks and drives butttttt only had it a week and iv bought 2 tires (controll arm broke and rubbed a deep grove in the tire)fixed it and now its sitting in the side of the rd axting like it cant get gas and my dad is getting it back here to look at it any thoughts of what it could be let me know oh did i mention it is turkey day and it broke down on me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
let me start with just saying that i have been a long time dodge fan and owned 4 different ones over the years, going down the list interior is cheaply made seats are horrible fit and finish sucks, brakes work about as good as fred flintstones, a set of ebc yellow pads helped a lot though, no electrical problems, engine has been fantastic other than 2 water pumps one at 55k the next one at 59k up to 75k on second replacement, truck has multiple displacement system, if i get 13mpg on highway im having a good day, thats doing 65-70, suspesion is horrible factory shocks went bad around 30k and lower control arm bolts froze in place had to have them cut out and replaced, a nickles worth of anti seize would have gone a long way. transfer case will not shift out of 2wd, doesnt throw codes dealer wont fix it, so if you want a 1/2 ton truck dont buy one of these, unless of course its mine.

I bought it new in 2007. 5.7 1500 crew cab. The transmission has always been a bit wierd, but never gave it much thought. just yesterday at 82,000 miles, the transmission crapped out. The truck has been well maintained and only has 82,000 miles. The transmission should not be causing issues this early in the game... Shame on dodge.
2007 1500 4.7 liter. For the money; picked it up used winter of 2009 with 32K, for 13,500; not terrible, but can't brag about it either. To be fair though, it hasn't cost me much to maintain. I just finished putting on a water pump, for $60 and a battery a few weeks ago. Everyone has already talked about the poor fuel mileage, and the rough suspension. I wish I could have found the larger engine at a good price when I was looking, but I do feel I got a good deal. AC leaks a bit, but couple cans of recharge and it's ok.
