Ram 1500 Club Cab 4.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,233 miles

I bought a used 09 Ram truck from Island Chrysler Pawleys Island SC with only 37233 miles on it. It came with a 90 day power train warranty . On the first day I reported to the dealer a problem with the engine losing power and smoke poring out of the tailpipe. On the next business day I returned it to the dealer and they checked it out.

I had to take it again on 08/20 because it was getting worse more smoke. To date it has done this 15 times. I have put 3000 miles on it and changed the oil twice. It uses more than 2 quarts every 1000 miles! I called someone for help at Chrysler and have been given the runaround. Now they tell me my 90 days are up. I notified them on the first day. I am disabled and cannot afford the needed repair. They are screwing me. HELP!
