1994 Dodge Ram 2500 Problems

Poor Shift Quality Between First and Second Gear May be Caused by Pressure Control Solenoid

Replacing a pressure solenoid valve in the transmission valve body may fix an issue where the transmission "hunts" between first and second gears. Our technicians report that customers sometimes describe this complaint as surging or bucking.

Engine Will Crank But Not Start Due to Fuel Return Line Leak

If the engine is difficult to start or cranks but does not start, it can be caused by a leak in the return side of the fuel system. This type of leak can allow air to enter the injection pump resulting in starting issues. A rubber hose on the back of the injection pump, connecting the pump to the steel hard line, that can be the source of this type of leak.

Vehicle Drifts/Pulls to One Side When Brakes Are Applied

Some models could have a severe drift or pull to one side when the brakes were applied. If this is not caused by a dragging brake caliper, there is a service bulletin describing the step-by-step diagnosis and many possible solutions. Our technicians note the most common solutions are performing a four wheel alignment, checking torque on suspension components, installing shims between the wheels and hubs, and replacing the suspension arms.

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.

I have owned my Dodge for five years. I only major problem I've had was the prior owner put a under drive on and as you may know this set up was a bad design and the weight cracked the tranny case. I've removed the under drive and had the tranny repaired now for laying my hands on a stock drive shaft with out breaking the bank. Any suggestions.
Bought our Ram 2500 used in 1999 with 65,000 miles or so. She had 252,000 now. Replaced the transmission once. So far engine running good. Knock on wood ! Drove it on a 3200 mile trip in May. Did have to get a ball joint repaired while there. Only major problem - inconvenience we have been fighting is getting the air-conditiong system repaired to our standards. Cooled us fine before new com...
I have owned this truck since 1994. The first year and a half were rough: 2 transmissions; one in 1995 and the other in 1996. As a result I installed a transmission cooler and it solved the problem. In 2000 I had to replace the front end suspension and re-painted the hood and roof (by the way I live in CA!). I think there may have been a paint flaw with the 94 model. Overall, the Dodge has...
