August 25, 2011, 03:27 PM
New Belt was installed not too long ago and it sqraks alot. Also, I am getting an intermitting clunking type tapping noise around the same area. What causes this to happen? Can't figure out why it is sqeaking and now clunking tapping like noise happens? Can anyone advise if they have had the same happen to them or if they know of what causes this? Thanks in advance..
Question Asked: what can cause a "death wobble" on my 98 dodge ram 1500
July 25, 2011, 06:37 AM
I own a 98 Dodge Ram 1500 v6 manual transmision and the other day I experienced was very scary. I went over a bump and the front end of my truck shook and bounced violently, like a blew a tire out. I came to a stop on the side of the road, looked and saw my tires were fine and I looked under my truck and I saw nothing broken or dangling. I dismissed it for the time being and got back on the road heading to work. Then literally 2 or 3 days later. I hit another bump in the road and it did it again, same thing, came to a complete stop, got out and evaluated, saw nothing. I did some research on line because I am now scared to drive it because the next time I might not be so lucky. I found on the new later models they were calling their experience a "death Wobble" I have never had this happen before and it is scary to experience somthing that can all of a sudden end your life in a crash or cause a crash. Can anyone tell me without me replacing my whole front end and breaking the bank what could be the culprit? I would consult Dodge, but everyone on the web states that they deny such a problem.
