Dodge Ram 1500 Problems
Engine overheating can result from coolant leaks which are commonly found at the thermostat housing gasket, water pump, heater return tube O-ring at the water pump, intake manifold gasket, and timing cover gasket. Our technicians recommend a complete inspection of the cooling system after any repairs are made to be sure there are no other leaks.
On 3.9L V6 and 5.9L V8 engines, the intake manifold gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.

Dodge Ram 1500 Recalls
Upon deployment the driver's front airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the driver's front airbag inflator to correct this concern. Note: this recall supersedes, in part, recall #14V-354.
Because of an undersized spline on the rear axle pinion gear the pinion nut can loosen. If the pinion nut loosens, the rear axle may seize, and/or the driveshaft may detach resulting in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a retention feature to the pinion nut to correct this concern.
The clutch ignition interlock switch can fail due to broken return springs. A failed switch can cause the engine not to start or the vehicle to move unexpectedly when trying to start the engine. Dealers will replace the clutch ignition interlock switch to correct this concern.
