2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Problems

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.

Water Leak Due to Faulty Rear Window Seal

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.

Software Update and Axle Disconnect Actuator Replacement to Correct 4WD Issues

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.

Chrysler Recalls Certain 2010-2011 Dodge Ram Trucks Due to a Slow Returning Brake Pedal

Chrysler is recalling certain 2010-2011 Dodge Ram trucks equipped with a diesel engine and hydroboost brake system because the brake pedal may be slow to return after brake application. A slow returning brake pedal will cause the brake lights to be slow to extinguish, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the power steering reservoir cap in order to lessen the vent pressure in the reservoir.
