I will be driving on the freeway for 30 minutes, the truck will be running great. The temperature gage needle is in the middle. I will pull in for fuel and it will be difficult to start. After the third attempt it will start but it won't run that great. The check engine light will go on but it will reset itself after a day or 2 of driving. Thinking that leaking injectors could be the cause of my problems, I added some fuel conditioner to correct the problem. That was a mistake. Once again I shut the engine off after running it for a while and when I tried to start it 10 minutes later it would barely run. It was running on only 10% of it's regular power. The engine temperature started to climb. I pulled into a gas station 5 minutes later and filled the tank with high test fuel and let the engine cool down. It's engine is performing the way it did before but I don't dare shut the engine off when it's warmed up and try to start it 10 minutes after. Could you tell me what is causing this condition?

Growling sound when making hard right or left turn. I've replaced both hubs twice, rotor and pad, the sound did not change. Local shop could not find the problem. He thought it might need two hoses replaced on the power steering unit, $600.00 is high for a, I think it will work.

I need to drain the radiator and can't find the pet cock.

Has anyone experienced problems with the factory radio intermittently losing power? Sometimes when I start my truck, the radio is inoperative because it is not getting power. Then again, sometimes I start it up and the radio works. Has anyone had problems like this, perhaps a loose connection in the fuse box or something?

i have a problem with my 4WD, the light comes on for high and low but it makes a loud grinding noise when being engaged, is the transfer case causing it to not engage properly? would the chain need to be tightened to eliminate the problem? or would i have to get a entirely new transfer case? the truck was from florida so the 4WD was probably not used much, thanks Nick

i have a 2001 dodge 2500. my transmission normaly shifts into overdrive about 45 to 50 mph, but today it started shifting in & out of overdrive very quickly while driving between 45 & 50 but if i go ahead and accelerate above 50 it will engage into overdrive just fine but seems to be getting worse. is this a bad sensor or could it be a bad solonoid.

Blower stopped working but if you hit a rough spot in the road sometimes it would start working again. Now it dosen't work at all. I unplugged the 2 plugs from the blower. I have power on the 2 prong connector tested with a 12 volt light. On the 4 prong connector I have nothing with ignition on and blower switch in any position. Yes I checked fuse and it shows good. I think it is the switch but I don't know to get the dash apart to replace it. How do I do this I don't want to brake the plastic dash where do I start?

The truck is a dual battery set up. The battery that is closest electrically to to the alternator continually overheats and leaks acid. It has been replaced 3 times and is not the problem. The alternator has been replaced and puts out 12.4 to 15 volts and is not the problem. The remaining battery does not cook with the problematic battery removed from the system and the charging system appears to work normally.
