I do not know which fuse it is as it happens rarely. The A/C Clutch pulley is moving but the Clutch is not. If it is the fuse, which is it? If it is the A/C Relay, how do you test it? Two weeks ago it was blowing 47 degrees.
have replaced everything that has to do with cooling system except heater core and did pressure check on system and held at 16 pounds according to cap
the electric plunger valve on the back of the throtle body opens creating a massive vacum leak. this happens until normal operating temp is acheived. also on hot start up. I have replaced every sensor on the engine that sends signals back to the pcm,,,,,, Do you have any suggestions ,,,, I think the pcm is TOAST.

Last winter I got stuck in the snow and when trying to get it out by going from Drive to Reverse I sure that I damaged the first gear on the trans. Now after I come to a complete stop, like at a stop sign,if I step on the accelerater to much the truck will make a loud viberating noise untill I let off the gas. If I start out slow and easy there is no problem. I was hoping it was the universal joints wich I replaced myself. That did not help the problem. I also notice that after that first gear when I get into the second and beyond gears it run good but I can feel I vibration in my foot that wasnt there before. My question is: Can this problem be fixed or am I going to have to get a new(rebuilt)trans? Can I possibly fix this myself? The truck has 120k(all highway miles) on it and I cant realy afford to put a ton of money into it. It run great otherwise and I need it for work, so obviously I need something reliable. What would be the most cost effective solution? Thanks for your time. RK
recently installed a new oil pan on a customers truck . upon initial start up the rods or crank throws were contacting the dip stick tube , pulled it back off clearenced it now the dipstick wont go in correctly . the aftermarket pan was an SPI pan . Just wondering if there is a pan out there that you won't run into this problem with. This is the second time I've had this problem before with an SPI pan on a 408 stroker ,but that one made a little more sense.
My dodge ram 1500 haven't had any real problems but changing the muffler, u-joints, spark plugs and wires. When my check engine light first came on I had it scanned and it said mis fire in cylinder two. So I changed the spark plugs and wires. The check engine light went off. But a couple of days ago I noticed that when i pull the button and flip the switch for the lights to come on that around the button smoke comes out, but it doesn't come out the vents just where you pull the button for the lights to come on at. Then my check engine light came back on, so I had it scanned again but it says misfire in cylinder two and something about the upstream 02 level something something. I need to know what is going on and what to do.
What will cost to replace a transmission in this truck?
I bought this truck and the only way to open it is with the remote. The key they gave me only cranks the truck. It will not unlock the doors. The battery is dead and i cant get the hood up because i cant get in side. remote wont work with the dead battery. can you help? How can I unlatch the hood from the outside? Do they make a key to unlock the doors?

how you know when your catalyast converter bad?
How many rpms should i be running at 60 miler per our, it is running at 2500 rpms which seems a little high. i have changed the torque convertor can anyone tell me what else could cause this.
Sounds like something is rolling around in the front end, mostly notice it when i apply the breaks. Driving at high speeds you can't here it but when you start to come to a stop you can here it like something is rolling around. Any ideas?
