2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012012

Ram 1500 4.7L

  • Manual transmission
  • 101,000 miles

Fixed this same pinion bearing problem 3 times in my 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 about ever 30-40K miles.

Now my 2002 1500 is on it's 2nd fix in 100k. Did last almost 50k miles this time.

Last time I found a solid spacer and shim kit to replace the crush sleeve, and switched to Mopar synthetic fluid. This helped some.

The design is bad and is a known problem, but Dodge will not recall them.

Best solution change letters on the side from Ram 1500 to F150
