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.

problem #3

Aug 172007

Ram 1500 SLT 4.8L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,550 miles


When I fill my tank up all the way to full and drive approximately 15 miles the fuel gauge pegs to full empty and causes the check engine light to come on and stay on. I am really starting to hate dodge products with all the issues and glitches this truck has. Its a damn "LEMON". of course it happened right after my warranty expired. Again a prime example of piss pour quality parts. Whats next a piss poor quality designed dashboard? Too late that sucker cracked like in 8 different places. Not to mention constantly burning out rear tail lights that are supposedly the correct bulbs. Lets not forget the busted heater core.

Don't do it all the time - just once in a while. Some say its the gas cap and some say its a problem in the gas tank.
