Ram 1500

  • miles
The engine of my vehicle has a bad vibration between 1000-1500 RPM. The dealer has replaced the following components after three seperate visits: Fan clutch, torque converter, flex plate, harmonic balancer, transmission mount to crossmember, and changed the entire exhaust system to a 1997 version. I filed a lemon law claim with the manufacturer, however they now state it is a normal problem. A motor vibration will cause the engine to fail prematurely ie; broken crankshaft, or other internal components rendering the vehicle unsafe to operate and undrivable. The problem occurs when driving, in neutral, and park. Repairs attempted by the dealer have not corrected the problem.
