Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Ram 1500 1500 5.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,400 miles

Typical problem for the Dodge Ram 1500 is the AC evaporator under the dash. Estimated cost is $168-200 for the evaporator plus five (5) hours labor ($450-600) to remove the dash and do the work. The extended problem is the dash covers in these trucks (most years) are cracked in multiple places, so you might as well order the new dash cover ($140) and have your mechanic install it when he reassembles the dash.
