Mild Vibrations in steering wheel & gas pedal after 45mph & while turning left. Sounds & feels like I have knobby tires

The passenger airbag, abs, and brake lights came on in the dash, all at once and together.

I have a 1996 Indy Ram pace truck that sits most of the time (I use a battery switch as the truck has a minor battery drain due to what I believe is a short in the radio). Lately, when I start the motor, I have to keep pressure on the gas to keep it running. When I try to put it in Drive or Reverse, the engine dies...and it does so without a sputter or knock...just simply goes quiet. If I want to move the truck in the driveway, in order to keep the engine from stalling I need to keep pressue on the gas pedal, and my other foot on the brake. Unfortunately I do not have a code reader, perhaps I should purchase one and try that, but does anyone have any ideas on what's happening? Regards, Joe

i have a 1996 ram with 140.000 miles and when i put the truck in drive only drive there is a clicking noise sound like its coming from the bellhousing.The clicking noise speeds up as i accelerate.

What is the best way to raise the front end of my 04 Ram 1500, single cab, 2x4. Purchased it with spacers in front and shakles out back. I like the looks, but rides like a log wagon. Heard torsion bar key was a good way, and I am on a budget!

I have a 04 Doge Ram 1500. Past few months the truck will start acting like it will stall, all lights will dim way down. No codes has been put in place for this. I have replaced altenator, and battery and it quit. Started back up again but with my speedometer bounceing when I hit the brake and Brake/ABS lights come on. I have been told it is my computer going, but cant diagnos it because of no codes. what else can I check

I have an 2002 dodge 1500 2wd, When you first put the truck in reverse it backs up fine but if you stop and then try to go it doesnt want to go, or you have to really gas it so you have to flip it out of reverse and then back into, then it runs fine. Just got a full transmission flush about 2 weeks ago and got all the filers and seals replaced. it seems to be running somewhat better but still happens I was told i needed a new transmission but it isnt slipping and it only does it in reverse and now only 1 out of 2 times you back out compared to everytime. What is wrong with my truck????

just found problem


motor was rebuilt less than 10 months ago and now i have the clattering coming from the passenger side head which is where the original problem occured the code that has come with this problem is 0300 multiple cylinder misfire and i have no past experience with the overhead cam. if nothing else i need to find a GOOD mechanic please

Are the brake line fittings SAE or metric?

I replaced my radiator,water pump,hoses,thermostat and radiator cap. Only half of the radiator gets hot. You can touch the one side.I was told to try and put the truck on a slight hill,leave the cap off and run the truck,NO help. I took everything apart again to flush the radiator and make sure the water pump was working. Everything is. I even bought a new thermostat,no help. Does ANYONE have any ideas that can HELP? I REALLY need it. Been without the truck for 2 months between weather and work. PLEASE HELP! THANKS!!!

I have a 2000 dodge ram that I have recently purchased that has not has regular maintence performed form several years. I want to make sure this truck is in "tip top" shape. Is there a detailed list of items that I can go through to make sure it is in the best order possible.

My 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 truck had to be towed to the Dodge dealership. The factory installed security alarm will not shut off. The dealership has had it for two days and can not figure it out.

I have a 2004 Ram 1500 with a 4.7 liter motor. Temp seems to creep past its normal temp in traffic. I flushed the radiator and it still is doing the same thing. I think it is either the radiator or the water pump starting to fail. Any suggestions?

my tranmission temp'volt sensor keeps kicking the trany out of overdrive how can i fix this

how do I get to the crankshaft sensor so i can change it.

Slow leak caused brake reservoir to go low sometimes. When refilled, if I pumped to bring up pressure, a massive cloud of white smoke would come out the exhaust. Yesterday a brake line ruptured - when the van was started to limp it to the mechanic, so much smoke came out the exhaust that people thought it was on fire and came running out to look. After the van ran for awhile, all the smoke was gone. While full of smoke, engine ran very rough, but as it dissipated the engine ran fine. How is brake fluid getting into the exhaust system?

didn't make any noise was working fine parked it for the night got in the next morning and now it won't go in reverse. have checked linkage and fluid but it won't go in reverse. still have all other gears.

why is this happening?? I think fuel filter is clogged!my email is it act like it is running out of gas,I had the injectors cleaned.

truck is putting out white smoke when engine is cold. smells like antifreeze but no radiator leaks.

happens everytime I drive it!

i am trying to remove the overhead console to fix the connection of my dome light to actually engage the lamo to turn it on

we have a 1999 dodge ram 1500 v8 with a standard transmission that wont shift in or if gear. there is no griding or other noises.

hello, well very simple i took my truck to a dealer, because my abs and brake came on, but also my speedo kept jumping between 10mph and 28mph, but also my odometer reading kept adding miles while just stop or idleing, so anyways no mechanic knew what was wrong, everyone said my cluster was broken, but dealer diagnose speed sensonr in rear wheel, but unfortunaly they are charging me $400.00, because besides installing new part,they said, they are also checking my differential, and now they said, that my gears are a little damage, i ask how much? he said a cuple of thousands, is this possible,my truck only has 80,000 mles and no weird noises coming from the back or is it just a scam? to rip me off, dont know what to do. i also feel that they are overcharging me for what is being repair? i wonder if i can change my mine and tell them not to fixed and just charge me for diagnose since is only 130, and buy the part that they use. need some help please!
