problem #5

Ram 1500 Slt 1500 4x4 5.7

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,200 miles

I just recently got the truck back from having both cats and the o2 sensors replaced. I drove it for about app.50 mi. and the check engine light came back on. So needless to say the truck will be going back to the dealer for it's fifth trip to have what i'm sure is yet another cat and o2 sensor replacement. The dealer has accepted to replace parts even though the 3 year 36000 mi. warrant has expired...... due to the vehicles exhaust track record. Good luck to me, ya right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ram 1500 Slt 1500 4x4 5.7

The fourth time at 36,756 catalytic converter and o2 sensor failure. Every time dealer has replaced all relevant parts, as per my warranty coverage. This most recent problem was not covered by my 36000 mile warranty. The dealer seeing the on going history of the exhaust problems has elected to repair it AGAIN! with out charge to me.
