problem #1

Oct 302002

Ram 2500 4WD 6-cyl Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 500 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500. The contact stated that the clutch locked up and the vehicle was inoperable. While driving 55 mph, it seems as if the clutch releases and the rpms increase before the vehicle begins to drive normally. The contact took the vehicle to a dealer approximately twelve times, but they can never duplicate the failure. The clutch has been replaced twice. The failure occurs intermittently. The current mileage was 35,000 and failure mileage was 500. Updated 01/24/08 the dealer stated wiring plug fuse blown, alarm will go off with key in ignition or not, pdc cover broken, difficult to start in cold weather, noticed a burning smell, and fuel injection.
