1999 Dodge Ram 2500 Problems

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.

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.

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.

1999 Dodge Ram 2500 Recalls

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 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.

1999 Dodge Ram 2500 Reviews

I bought my truck used with 85,000 miles on it. !999 dodge diesel 24 valve. I've done nothing but sink money into this truck. So much for saving money by buying used. When it runs good there is nothing like it. It's like a big strong man. It loves to tow, awesome torque. The engine is really the only thing good about this truck, everything else is cheap and doesn't last. I've replaced the fuel ...

I will never get rid of truck.
