Dodge Ram 2500 Problems

Replace Pressure Solenoid in Transmission Valve Body to Fix Transmission Bucking

Replacing a pressure solenoid valve in the transmission valve body may fix an issue where the transmission "hunts" between first and second gears. Our technicians report that customers sometimes describe this complaint as surging or bucking.

Numerous Conditions May Cause Engine to Crank But Not Start

If the engine is difficult to start or cranks but does not start, it can be caused by a leak in the return side of the fuel system. This type of leak can allow air to enter the injection pump resulting in starting issues. A rubber hose on the back of the injection pump, connecting the pump to the steel hard line, that can be the source of this type of leak.

Water Leak Due to Faulty Rear Window Seal

On some models a void in the rear window seal may cause a water leak. Water may be present on or under the carpet. The seal will need to be replaced if that is the source.

never ownd a better truck

I pull a big 5th wheel over Snoqualmie Pass in Wash. with no problems. The truck is rock sol...
