Look at their record for engine failures on several of their models. I do not want to have the same trouble. Ideal for high mileage cars. Now at 97k the thing is knocking. I took it off and found the rod inside broken. Fairbanks was broke, his Willys-Knight was always breaking down, and he needed a new car. Don't know what y'all are doing wrong but maybe babying the 4.
In 2003, buyers were able to purchase the Ram 1500 with an extended or Quad cab four-door and a 6. We changed this out and everything was fine for about 5 months. This is really good stuff! May be an oil flow issue, I guess I will do a flush and an oil change, then see what happens. I asked what they thought the cause of the problem was, the Tech said it was due to my Negligence and that I didn't have the oil changed on a regular basis. I am fed up with this vehicle.
If you're going to get into an engine that far, you might as well replace the timing chains and tensioner as well, or maybe upgrade to a double-roller chain and eliminate the tensioners. I usually experience intermittent start problems once every couple of weeks. They replaced one side and both side gaskets. Note: To go up to 25,000 miles on the same oil, for some vehicles it may require changing the oil filter 2 or more times and topping off when an Amsoil 25,000 mile filter is not available. At 75,000 miles the engine went out while going on vacation.
Turn and push until you are sure that the socket is fully engaged on the sparkplug. The thicker weight oils ie 10w- have thicker cold viscosity meaning hard on engine start up and more likely to cause sludge. I had her turn off the engine and checked the fluids and looked for any leaks, I found none and the fluids were fine. Oil Change every 6-months or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. We've done nothing … to it. Purchased a new 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad 4x4.
KenF answered 4 years ago The 4. I have contacted an attorney and will be filing a claim against dodge for this repair. . Many dealers will tell u a bad lifter or 2 and charge a few hundred and just end up replacing the stud to screw ppl. I have a 2003 Durango with 134k on it. It has a new water pump and serpantine belt also.
They called and told me to come get the truck. Drove it with well over 316k. It pulls the boat just fine but no power driving up hills on the highway without having to downshift out of overdrive to keep up to speed. So why the f--- don't they recall these engines now? My guess would be a faulty starter motor or some type of sensor??? I had an older Durango with a 5. All gauges look fine so my husband keeps driving as the truck has had no trouble prior to this. I am getting kind of worried because of the complaints I am seeing on the internet about the 4.
Works in gas or diesel engines. Do not go by vehicle's oil life monitor when using this oil. This second box connects to the throttle body. It has had a ticking noise from day one. The coil may be difficult to remove, but it will come. I told him I usually have the oil changed at Hendrick Cadillac, so he was wrong. I don't know what to do from here.
Infact new dodge now have 5w-20 weight to meet higher mpg requirements. . Change oil when Oil Life Monitor tells you to change the oil or go by the owner's manual factory drain interval. It was just losing antifreeze as fast as i could put it in. I bought my 2003 dodge 1500 4x4. Your pour the oil in the oil fill hole. Hydrobear answered 2 years ago Well.
No wonder Chrysler is going under, and as always the warranty ran out this vehicle with the 4. I received a call a day later from Crown Dodge service rep saying the truck engine was full of sludge and that I needed a new engine. Superior protection again oxidation, neutralizing acids, inhibiting corrosion, reducing wear and protects against deposits. I've towed a small cargo trail almost Every day. Love the vehicle, but I am done with the 4. Again, I found it easier to remove the ratchet handle from the extension s , put the plug in the socket and thread all of that down into the hole. Sounds like you are on the rollercoaster going up hill.
