The fuel-supply line quick-connector on my Dodge Ram van is leaking and it is impossible right now to purchase a replacement of any kind.I examined it and has concluded that the vinyl o-ring is the problem,not the rubber o-rings that are also installed with the vinyl one.I'm thinking that I could cut the connector off and connect the line to the tank with a piece of rubber-hose and two clamps.....Is there any thing wrong with that idea? I mean, regular clamps should hold the pressure......part of the line is connected with a piece of rubber-hose and no clamps as original equipment.....agree or disagree?....Thanks for a prompt response.....frankiedon.

Dodge ram van 5.2L ; I have had a catalyst and evap monitors flashing on my carmd code reader for over a year.I have replaced both oxygen sensors before and aft. Driven the van numerous times stop and go etc. Do the flashing monitors mean that something is wrong or just that the monitors are not running and if they are not running would'nt that mean that something is not functioning?....Confused. Thank you .

I removed the resistor which is in the upper part of the a/c box and looked at the 3-springs.All are intact.

There is a sensor or solinoid on the extension housing of the trans. It is high up in a corner .I wish I knew what it is because it leaks fluid but I don't want to trouble it before I know what it does and if it just needs a new rubber ring.Any one knows ? Thanks for any help.

Need to know if my transmission is a 36rh or 46rh. It has electronic overdrive because it can be shut off with a button.I have gathered some info. that seems to be saying that the trans. in the 1995 to 2001 1500to 2500 v8 5.2L is 36rh.On the other hand the 1500 to 3500 1995to 2003 v8 5.2L has 46rh.It is one or the other but I can't decide.My van has a 318 engine. Is there a more specific way to be sure? thanks for any help.

Engine temp went over 240 degrees for about 3 minutes because of low coolant; it didn't appear to have damaged anything but what should I be expecting.
