2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Problems

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.

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.

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.

I have had to dodge trucks. One was a 2004 1500 and the one I have now is a 2500 mega cab. The 1500 was a 8 cyl. and the 2500 a hemi. Both trucks if I hit a pot hole, railroad track or anything alittle rough in the road the motor will kill. HMMMM> Payload is terrible my 2500 elcoline van carries more. The a,c system sucks.

This is the second Ram that I have owned. I will not own anything but a Dodge for the rest of my life. This Truck is the best. 5.7L HEMI. Need I say more. If Raw Power is what you want, this is the truck you need.
