What are the normal "downsides" to these trucks? I've been looking into getting one.. but I hear they have tranny problems... is it true?
Does this truck have any particular year and powertrain, or is this just one of those questions that is so general in nature as to be basically unanswerable?
98-01 Dodge Ram 4x4... probably goin to be a sport
bump.. help plz
Fuel consumption? :mrgreen:
lol well i need a truck... but yea jus wondering of typical problems with the previous mentioned Dodges
You were asked about year and powertrain. You managed to narrow down the age of the truck and a trim level, but all we know about the powertrain is 4WD. You have three different engines (3.9, 5.2, 5.9), two different types of transmissions (5-speed manual, automatic) and even two different automatics depending on the year. If YOU want information, YOU have the responsibility to give us something to work with. My crystal ball isn't working today. :banghead:
Let me see here.. I really don't know.. I was looking into them... I just want to know typical problems that dodge trucks have all together.. Not just one in particular.. I'm trying to see if any of them are atleast somewhat reliable.
Just pick a particular setup and ask about it. This is about as lame as
"my truck isnt working, whats wrong with it?"
However, many Dodge owners I have talked to have complained about the electrical system in all the cars, trucks, and vans produced by Dodge/Chrysler. This holds for me as well, it seems that after 10yrs the electrical system just decides it needs to be flushed down the toilet. :2cents:
the trannys are junk. even when they are well taken care of they are iffy. if you absolutly have to have one get the powertrain looked at by a certified tech, not some "fly by the seat of his pants" idiot.
