Dodge Ram 2500 Problems
Replacing a pressure solenoid valve in the transmission valve body may fix an issue where the transmission "hunts" between first and second gears. Our technicians report that customers sometimes describe this complaint as surging or bucking.
On some models a void in the rear window seal may cause a water leak. Water may be present on or under the carpet. The seal will need to be replaced if that is the source.
If the engine is difficult to start or cranks but does not start, it can be caused by a leak in the return side of the fuel system. This type of leak can allow air to enter the injection pump resulting in starting issues. A rubber hose on the back of the injection pump, connecting the pump to the steel hard line, that can be the source of this type of leak.

My father bought a 01 Ram 2500 with the 5.9L Cummins and it is now in my name. We both over 10 years of driving this truck just triped 415K and the only thing we have done to this truck is replace a fuel line, so if you are looking for a long lasting truck with motor the Dodge Cummins is the best way to go. We have pulled everything from 6KLBS boats up the steepest grades to hauling a trailer l...
Where do I start? This vehicle reinforces my impression that US made cars/trucks are poorly made. I bought my 2000 Quad Cab 4x4 w/ Cummins diesel brand new and it has cost me about $1000 per year in repairs every year. I've had the A/C malfunction at least 5 times, once under warranty. My 6 speed transmission failed at 70,000 miles - cost me $4000 to replace. Two crankshaft position sensor...
Dash cracked after 3 years. Dodge said would help but still wanted a thousand from me for new one.
