problem #3

May 191997

Ram 2500 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 40,000 miles
Gas gauge inside on the Dodge Ram 2500 diesel engines corodes and falls off after a short period of time. Our truck is a 1996 and the gauge broke in 1997. The price is too much to fix it and if fixed, was said that it would just break again. It is very hard to drive without knowing how full or empty your gas tank is. This is a very serious problem and needs to be looked into.
