Most reported Dodge Ram Wagon B250 problems
The distributor pickup plate may fail causing Intermittent Stalling or No Start Condition, usually when engine is hot.
Some vehicles may exhibit one or more of the following: Spark knock complaints when the vehicle is under load, various single cylinder misfire, and surge in 4th gear (around 45 mph). Our technicians tell us that rerouting the coil and spark plug wires to minimize induction effects will commonly correct this condition. If wires must cross during the reroute procedure, they must cross at a 90 degree angle.
A squeaking/clicking noise from the rear of the vehicle may be coming from the rear springs. Our technicians tell us that a kit is available including spring tip liners and clinch clips.
Delayed transmission engagement of 2 to 8 seconds may be noted after the vehicle has been parked for an extended period. Our technicians tell the repair involves installing a drainback relief valve in the transmission oil cooler pressure line.
A delayed upshift condition may be experienced for about 1/4 mile in cold weather (32 degrees F and below) and is most noticeable after the vehicle has been parked for 8 or more hours. Our technicians tell us the repair involves replacing teflon governor drive seal rings with cast iron seal rings.
Oil seepage can occur at the speed sensor or speed sensor gear adapter (speedometer adapter). A redesigned speed sensor is available and the adapter may need to be replaced.
