The AC/heater (HVAC) system may unexpectedly switch to the defrost mode when accelerating. This system is operated by engine vacuum and should be inspected for any vacuum leaks if this problem develops. There is also a revised vacuum check valve available to address this concern.

Dodge Ram Van B250 Problems
On the 3.9L V6, 5.2L V8 and 5.9L V8 the Oil leaks commonly from the valve cover gaskets, intake manifold gaskets (front and rear), timing cover gaskets, distributor O-ring, and the rear main seal area. Using fluorescent engine oil dye can be helpful in determining the source(s) of the oil leak.
The HVAC blower may operate on high speed only. This is commonly caused by a failed blower motor resistor. Chrysler has released a revised part to address this problem.
The blower motor may operate erratically and the blower switch operation has a sticky or mushy feeling, the detents almost non existent. Our technicians tell us that the blower switch should be removed and inspected for overheating. This is common if the blower motor is frequently operated on high speed as the current flow through the switch tends to melt internal the components. Also carefully inspect all of the switch conne...
Insufficient fuel pressure may be caused by particulate contaminates or other type of substances by-passing the primary fuel pick-up screen and resulting in fuel pump failure. Our technicians recommended to replace entire fuel pump module assembly as two (2) filters, primary and secondary are included with the assembly.

Dodge Ram Van B250 Reviews
Traded a Honda Accord for this van...during a very scary time when gas prices were rocketing higher. Why might you ask? Well for one, I always wanted a van like this, "Conversion style"...and 2. The Honda was a P.O.S.!!!! Paid 1400.00 for the honda, it ran good, but that's all I could really say in it's defense. Sometimes it wouldn't start, some kind of electrical glitch it had...which was the main reason for selling it! That and I thought the trans. was getting ready to have problems.
Anyways, the guy I traded with wanted the Honda for it's gas milage, since I'm only about 8 miles from work, I'm not too awful worried about fuel economy...but I do try to drive the van easy so as to milk every drop of fuel for it's potential in miles per gallon! Right now I'm trying to figure out some of the things I've noticed with the van. It has a vacuum leak that allows the air to transfer automatically to the defrost mode from the vent mode. Also, my rear blower motor isn't working at all, not sure what's up with that... I have several lights not working inside the van, not even sure how to access the bulbs to check them and see if they're blown. There's a clicking noise in the drivers side front wheel, gotta get in there and find out what's up with that. It's something brake associated, cuz mashing the brake pedal makes the noise go away, but then you "feel" the pattern of the noise you just heard in the brake pedal. The rear seat that folds down to a bed looks like it hadn't been used in years, due to rusty looking screws that raise and lower it. Tried to lower it, with no success...could be blown fuse, haven't checked yet. Other than all of that, the van runs, and rides good...no transmission issues like the honda, thank God...and overall I'm very pleased with my new ride! It's fun to drive, you feel like you're driving a huge thing down the road...feels impervious to destruction of any kind. I know of course a simple little deer could wipe this vehicle out, so I drive very carefull in all areas where this is likely to happen! It just floats on down the road like you're on water!
My wife isn't at all enthused that I picked this van up...not yet anyways...I'm waiting for the first family trip we go on together...we normally take the Durango, but I'm hoping I can reason with her and get her to try the B250 Conversion Van...it has way more room, rides better, and gets better gas milage! That Durango is a gas hog!!!
very good van it is best
coolest van around and thats a fact ed holliday red bluff
