Ram 1500 SLT 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,254 miles

I paid $23000 cash for this truck and had no complaints until my after pump went bad and it ended up taking my engine with it. I've never heard of a water pump going bad and causing such a catastrophic failure that the engine would be completely ruined. This happened in a span of about three minutes and I got no indication of such severe over heating. With cast iron heads this probably would be a good engine, but as it is I would have to call it a fail.
