Dodge D250 Problems

Air Conditioning Not Cold

The powertrain control module (PCM) may fail resulting in a lack of AC cooling. The lack of cooling could be caused by evaporator freeze-up due to the AC compressor staying on continuously or conversely, not coming on at all. Proper diagnoses of the PCM should be performed before replacing it for this concern.

Coolant leaks

The following cooling system components are prone to leaks: Thermostat housing gasket, water pump, heater tube o-ring at water pump housing, intake manifold gasket, and timing cover gasket. These are generally external, not internal coolant leaks so intermix with the engine oil in uncommon.

Improper indexing of distributor

Under light load, at approximately 2000rpm the engine could exhibit surging, bucking, or intermittent misfires. Our technicians tell us this could be caused by a mis-indexed distributor.

I bought this truck used with many miles on it. The engine had been rebuilt. So far its been a very good reliable truck. Hauled many things and even a medium sized pop up trailer with no problems. Interior is not in the best shape and appears to have been built shoddy to begin with. Exterior all the paint was peeling bad and looks like that might also been a factory issue.
