my 4wd service light cam on as well as the abs and brak stability control light ??????

How do you get the hoses detatched ???

My rear end was broke in a road process so now I want to put on another one but what kind if I can't find the same kind. What other types of rear ends will fit.

I just change a egr valve on my truck when press the pedal its tight and I not getting any power sound rough like it gone dead but dosen't. want to know what i am doing wrong.

Last winter I got stuck in the snow and when trying to get it out by going from Drive to Reverse I sure that I damaged the first gear on the trans. Now after I come to a complete stop, like at a stop sign,if I step on the accelerater to much the truck will make a loud viberating noise untill I let off the gas. If I start out slow and easy there is no problem. I was hoping it was the universal joints wich I replaced myself. That did not help the problem. I also notice that after that first gear when I get into the second and beyond gears it run good but I can feel I vibration in my foot that wasnt there before. My question is: Can this problem be fixed or am I going to have to get a new(rebuilt)trans? Can I possibly fix this myself? The truck has 120k(all highway miles) on it and I cant realy afford to put a ton of money into it. It run great otherwise and I need it for work, so obviously I need something reliable. What would be the most cost effective solution? Thanks for your time. RK

i have taken all the bolts off the oil pan and it will not come off. so my question is, am i missing an another step on removing the pan.

the ac and heater only blow from the defroster not from the dash or floor what can be done

Trying to replace front pass half shaft on 2002 ram 1500. Plenty of movement at wheel bearing but can't get shaft to move at the differntial side. I believe I can see the locking ring at the outside edge of the shaft, but cannot get the shaft to move. Tried a prybar, fork & lump hammer and sprayed with pb blaster. Shaft does wiggle slightly but wont slide off spline AT ALL. Any inpoot would be great.

The Crank Sensor is showing up in the code. It is starting to stall while driving it.

Recently when I pulled the switch to turn my headlights on, the dash and parking lights came on but the headlights would not come on. I also noticed that the hi beam indicator light will not come on or the turn signals. I'm not a mechanic but I can do most repairs if I know what the problem is. Do I need to replace the switch that is located on the upper left corner of the dash or the dimmer switch on the steering column? I've had a problem in the past with the lights going out when their on hi beam. I've already tried changing the bulbs, did not help. Any suggestions or help greatly appreciated.

recently installed a new oil pan on a customers truck . upon initial start up the rods or crank throws were contacting the dip stick tube , pulled it back off clearenced it now the dipstick wont go in correctly . the aftermarket pan was an SPI pan . Just wondering if there is a pan out there that you won't run into this problem with. This is the second time I've had this problem before with an SPI pan on a 408 stroker ,but that one made a little more sense.

My dodge ram 1500 haven't had any real problems but changing the muffler, u-joints, spark plugs and wires. When my check engine light first came on I had it scanned and it said mis fire in cylinder two. So I changed the spark plugs and wires. The check engine light went off. But a couple of days ago I noticed that when i pull the button and flip the switch for the lights to come on that around the button smoke comes out, but it doesn't come out the vents just where you pull the button for the lights to come on at. Then my check engine light came back on, so I had it scanned again but it says misfire in cylinder two and something about the upstream 02 level something something. I need to know what is going on and what to do.

My 1995 dodge ram1500 p/u driver door latch/lock isn't working. The key won't lock/unlock and the door won't latch closed. I have to tie it shut with rope/bungee cords.How do I repair it myself?

my check engine light win't go off and the code says that the o2 sensor needs to be replaced--where is it?

while driving the vehicle, all bells and whistles lit up, all gauges were normal, vehicle shut down, able to push to side of road. Towed to service station, they quickly looked at it and said the engine locked up but could not immediately say why. Does this sound correct and what could have caused it if all levels were ok?
