my truck started missing while driving and the truck started shaking. After checking I pulled the oil fill cap and have a rocker arm that has come off. Will I be ok with pulling valve cover and putting it back on if it looks ok or should I pull the head and have head redone . I am limited on funds , and just bought the truck 3 weeks ago.
thanks jim evatt
Bought my truck from a State auction. AC wasn't working. Took it to a repair shop this time last year. They replaced the compressor, accumlator/drier. Worked great for six months. Trouble started last Sept. It would blow cold for a while then fall off till it was warm them after a while start cooling off again and get real cold then start back towards warm. Took it back three times and the last time they said my condenser was partially clogged so they installed a new one. No change but tired of spening money I waited till spring this year and took it back. They kept it for two full days and called me on the third to say they found some trash in a line and had it fixed. No charge. Picked it up and headed back to work but it didn't last five miles before same trouble started.
pitman arm,gearbox,idler arm need to be replaced after about 25k miles,when they were replaced in 2006 supposedly with new parts
Why is the labor almost $100 more on a 2500 VS a 3500. They are both the same (disk brake w/floating hub).
We replaced the front brake callipers and bled the system. After we bled the system the pistons on both calipers stayed extended and would not retract. After we take the calipers off we can manually compress the front right calipers pistsons but not the front left. If we open the bleeder valve on the front left we can compress the pistons.
cant get the bolt up after taking the drive shaft off. why?
Truck will slightly surge forward when my foot is on the brake and at a stop sign. Brake pedal does not drop any...vehicle just moves forward and then stops. I am wondering if it is a problem with the ABS releasing and then grabbing again.
my dodge ram 2500 cummins turbo diesel 5.9L wants to die from stop to takeoff and if i don't shift into nest gear at correct rpms it starts (feels like) missing, even if I do shift gears at correct rpms it still (at 60) feels like it is missing or starving for fuel. Need to find out where the fuel regulator switch is, can you also tell me where i can find it also. please help me. thanks
My father wants to know what the correct way is to adjust the head lights back to factory settings... Any ideas???
this sounds weird, but when it is cold outside ie. 0 to 40 degrees,there is a high pitched ringging heard at different times - not constantly, the ringging pitch can be raised or lowered by lightly tapping throttle pedal or say you are driving with overdrive off and decide to turn it on, you can hear the shift in transmission through the ringging,this ringging again, comes on at no real particular speed, but when it does start,you can hold the ringging sound by "playing" with the throttle pedal, is this the transmission pump or maybe torque converter? when the weather gets warm outside,you don't hear the ring at all,only when it's cold. Truck does have 185,000 miles on it.
i got about half tank of gas the other day and about i mile away it started hesitating and losing power for about 30 seconds then went awayfor the next mile or so thst i drove it.i parked it for half hour or so then came out to go somewhere when after running for about2 or 3 minutes it losses power and putters for about 30 seconds then is perfectly fine until i park it for about 15 min to a half hour it does the exact same thing every time.i went through a whole tank of gas and refilled it and it seems to still be doing it so for now im gonna try some gas additive and see.no dash lights have come on either so im hoping maybe water in the gas but thinking it should be gone after i refilled. thanks for helping
