How do you know if the alternator is going bad? I have replaced the serpentine belt and idle pulley but I still hear a squeaking/ticking noise. The only other thing in that area is the alternator. Could this possible be the problem. I am running out of options.

I hear a ticking/whistling noise coming from the area near that one main belt thats goes around all the pulleys. I thought it was the idle but that wasn't it. What should I try next?

while driving my 02 dodge 1500 pu the door locks started going up and down and light came on saying open door and dinging what could be wrong? thank you for any help.-Michelle


need a diagram on installing the timing chain

garage told me the drivers side wheel hub assembly was worn and needs to be replaced. need an estimate but nothing shows up under this type of repair.

Recently i've been hearing a great deal of squeaking noise coming from the front passenger side wheel area of my truck. I pressed down on all four corners of the truck and it only squeaks on the front passenger side. It occurs whenever i hit a bump, and when i turn, or if i'm standing beside it and rock that side of the truck. Any suggestions to what it could be?

I have a engine wiring problem with my 1994 Dodge Ram 1500; When I drive in forward gear the engine shakes and runs very rough...plus it back fires when I step on the gas pedal - No power at all!!

But, when I drive it in reverse gear, the engine runs smooth and fine...No back fire or running rough!!!

My truck has been parked for about a month now, because of this problem, I had a complete tuned-up in the fall of 2010, everything was fine up to this point. My buddy and I checked the spark plugs wires to see if they were not loose and also made sure the distributor cap was secure...and we checked the spark plugs to see if they were gapped right.

Everything checked out okay!

When my friend and I were just about to give up, we tried one more thing - my friend put the truck in forward gear and held the brake while giving it some gas; Under the hood there's a bunch of wires in a black curly tube on the body of the truck above the engine...I started shaking that tube of wires and the engine smoothe it self out and wasn't running rough anymore.

So, I drove it around for about 20 minutes everything was fine, I guess once the engine got hot...the problem started up again - running rough, back firing, No power when I stepped on the gas. This only happen's in forward gear, it doesn't happen in reverse gear!!

We think it's a bad wire some where,that's broken, rusty or hitting against the engine, but where do I look...what wire would cause this type of problem?

Need Help Bad!

Thank You,

Dealer want to charge me $149 to replace a defective oil pressure switch because of no reading on the oil pressure gauge. Is this repair cost in the ballpark

how do you change out the front wheel bearings and what is needed to do the job.

If we have heavy rain the truck will turn over but not fire. After the rain stops and truck dries the truck will crank like nothing has happened.

I just had work done on my truck to repair low/no oil pressure. It cost 2000.00. The next day the oil pressure needle fell again down to low/no oil pressure. What could possibly be the problem now?

I have no wipers, signal lights, tail lights or brake lights. At first it was all that PLUS headlights, fog lights, high beams and dashboard lights. I changed the wiper switch amd headlight switch, checked all fuses and relays. Bulbs are fine. What else can I do?

What is the code & where can I look to fix it?

Regardless of the settings cold air blows from the left vent and on the floor on driver and passenger sides. Warm heat comes from passenger vent

heater does not blow at all while idling but will start to blow when truck starts going down the road

i have a 2001 Dodge Ram we got stuck in some snow after we got unstuck we have no reverse and no heat can anyone tell me what it could be did the reverse go out or could it be a vacuum leak my brother told me it could possibly be a vacuum leak just wondering if anyone can help

how many u joints on it, what is the one in the center called.

temp gauge in-op. location of gauge temp sending unit.

My running lights don't work. I can't drive my truck past 5PM. I thought maybe it was the bulbs so I took them out and replaced them. I then realized the fronts are out too. My headlights, fogs, turns and brake lights all work. I checked every fuse and relay and everything was good with the exception of the cigarette lighter fuse. I have a 4 flat harness for my trailer and I even took that out just in case, but nothing. I'm thinking it must be the switch on the dash? I asked around and It'll cost me $80 for a replacement switch which simply plugs in but I don't want to risk buying it and that not being the problem. Any suggestions to what it might be?
