problem #2

Jun 012016

Ram 3500 SLT Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

Okay, The Ujoint on my truck froze and caused the rear seal in the transmission to wear and start leaking. Causing he transmission to run out of oil and distroyed it. I had to tow the truck and replace the tranission and the Ujoint. I was only able to buy a sealed ujoint so its a mater of time before this is a repeat.... I called Dodge and was blown off. I bought this truck new for 45,000.00. Lots of problems and the rusting away sucks too... What do I do? No $ to buy a different trk as it wont be a dodge. Oh yea, one day the injecter blew off and fuel all over... The transfer case kicks out of gear going down hill and the idle modulator wont modulate and paied Dodge to look at it several times + not fixed yet...NO Dodge again.
