RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler is recalling certain 1998 Dodge Dakota, Ram 1500, and Ram 2500 models because the bolts used to attach the cab and core support to the frame may fail.

Engine, September 14, 1998

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1998 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models equipped with 5.9L 24-valve Diesel engines because the low pressure Diesel fuel supply tube located in the engine compartment between the filter and the high pressure pump can fracture, which may cause a fuel leak. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the low pressure diesel fuel supply tube.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1998 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 trucks equipped with 8.0L V-10 or 5.9L V-8 gasoline engines. An exhaust system heat shield attaching screw is too close to the underbody fuel line. If they rub together, it could lead to a fuel leak. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak may result in a fire. Dealers will remove the underbody heat shield attaching screw and replace it with rubber adhesive. The chassis fuel line will be inspected for signs of wear and will be replaced if necessary.

Dealers will replace the front outer seat belt buckles with buckles that have been properly riveted.

Body, Interior & Misc., September 25, 1997

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1997 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models equipped with Diesel engines because the exhaust pipe may contact or be in close proximity to the outer dash panel silencer pad. If the pipe gets too hot, the pad material may smolder and ignite adjacent materials, which could result in a fire. Dealers will remove the dash silencer pad adjacent to the exhaust pipe and replace it with a thermal heat shield on the exhaust pipe.

Drive Train, May 19, 1997

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1994-1997 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because under certain high load conditions, the transmission fluid temperature can exceed the melting point of the material used in the connector. If this happens, fluid may spray onto the exhaust manifold, which can cause a fire. Dealers will replace the high temperature side of the transmission fluid cooler line connector fittings with connectors that incorporate a stainless steel retainer.

Brakes, May 19, 1997

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1995-1996 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models equipped with Diesel engines. Due to the absence of an internal check valve, the vacuum pump may allow engine oil into the vacuum hoses. The oil may cause the hoses to deteriorate and collapse, which would reduce vacuum supply to the brake booster. This may increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a vacuum pump check valve and the vacuum hose connected to the vacuum pump will be replaced with a hose that is engine oil resistant.

Suspension & Steering, February 7, 1997

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1994-1995 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because the lower steering shaft may separate from the upper steering shaft. This can cause a loss of vehicle control, which can increase the risk of a crash. If the plastic pins and metal clip are broken, dealers will add a restraining sleeve to the intermediate steering shaft in order to limit the motion of the axial steering column shaft.
