Dodge Ram 2500 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My family has owned Dodge Rams for about as long as I can remember, so I know the usual RPM at 70mph is typically right around 2000RPM. We bought this truck used from a guy that bought it at an auction, so I have zero history on it.
No matter what speed you're at the RPMs are always way over. It sounds really loud, like it's making an enormous effort just to go. If you press the O/D button the light in the dash turns on that the O/D has been turned off but there is no difference in RPMs or anything else.
It is also leaking oil (it seems like just while is running) not sure if it's related.
I haven't changed any parts on it as a need a better idea of what it could be before I start buying parts.
I replaced a belt 2 weeks ago. today it broke again. I can replace it but I want to know why its breaking.
I have 120000 miles on my diesel truck and had to replace the water pump this year. Then 6 months later it went out again. Now after only 2 months its going out again.why? I used a part from oReilys and I am getting suck of going through this. What could it be?
replaced fuel lift pump and started without either 20 times or so but each start cranking took longer. Now back to using either. replaced fuel rail pressure sensor did not help
what would be the size yoke for the axles and axle sizes
what would the ratio for the mix be
I bought a master solenoid kit and before I could put it on my transmission stopped shifting into over drive. So I drained the fluid and found that a plate in my over drive assembly broke apart. I ordered a new overdrive assembly and installed it along with the master solenoid kit and it still won't shift into overdrive. My transmission is a 48RE. After my test drive I could smell burnt fluid.
Pressed tow-haul mode, locked in 4th gear and blew transmission on mountain pass. Almost went over side of mountain
Going 30 miles or under is okay, but over that, it acts like its either starving for gas or vacuum leak, or not firing on all points
It doesn't matter taking the battery cables loose or sticking a computer to check it. Both lights stay on!
also replace control solenoid A plus switch still bogging itself out plus new alternator is fried
I changed the brake calipers and pads and every time I apply brakes it never stops. Why?
how much to take to a dealer to replace?
Replaced ignition switch didn't help
I am changing my transmission fluid for the first time and need to know how and how much fluid I need?
How long would the seal/gasket last
shoots codes p0252, p0251,and p1688
And when it die s it won't start for a while I changed ecm , PCM , crank shaft sensor !
It's pretty warm out and I had the ac on pretty low.
Truck came to a stop as I was exiting the freeway
Now it won't turn over. Sounds good, but just takes too long. Not sure what it could be any thoughts would be appreciated!
ac/heat work good and temp control works good , just stuck in defrost or top vents only
Do you set the timing on a Dodge Ram 2500 5.9
Several times in the past week the truck will go into a neutral like state, slowing down and finally catch again or not catch at all and I will have to pull over, turn the engine off, wait and few minutes and try again. The check engine light sometimes comes on and sometimes it doesn't. It is currently on now but our obdii only reads 8888. Mileage is 130,031. RPM will go high to 2500 but goes down if it catches again.
why would my heater block be constantly running when not on draining my battery? fring my starter? and alternator?
HAD THIS PROBLEM BEFORE REPLACING EVERYTHING AND ITS HAPPENING AGAIN what to do?

Oil pressure sometime shows good and sometimes none drove it about 5 miles had no overheating problems would it be pressure sending unit or pressure regulator spring
The 5.9 has 300k and there is a lot of blow by.
