1991 Dodge Ram 50 Problems

An exhaust leak and/or chirp type noise may develop from the exhaust manifold to header pipe connection. Our technicians tell us that replacing the exhaust seal ring and flange springs, along with sizing the header pipe flange will generally correct this concern.

On 2.4L 4 cylinder engines a whining noise may be noted when the engine is cold and the rpm is in the 1800-2000 range. Our technicians tell us that most commonly this type of noise is coming from the engine oil pump. The repair is to replace the front case assembly and both the drive and driven oil pump gears.

Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common and increases with mileage and over time. Symptoms can vary from light ticking to hammering/knocking noises. Performing a Fuel injector cleaning service will often also remove enough carbon build up to lessen any noise concerns related this issue.
