Dodge Ram 2500 Problems

Water Leak Due to Faulty Rear Window Seal

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.

Poor Shift Quality Between First and Second Gear May be Caused by Pressure Control Solenoid

Rerouting Ignition Coil/Spark Plug Wires Can Solve Misfire/Surge Problems

On the 3.9L V6 and 5.2L V8, rerouting the ignition coil wire and spark plug wires can help solve a misfire and/or surge problem that occurs at approximately 45 mph. A service bulletin was published that outlines the specifics of the repair. It states the rerouting procedure should be performed before other repairs are done for misfires, surging or spark knock.
