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.

1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Owner Comments

problem #1

May 192009

Ram 2500 Sport 8.0L V10

  • Automatic transmission
  • 233,000 miles


Oil pump went out, oil pickup tube was plugged. it has 233000 miles, this is not unexpected. However, there are no parts available. Parts required are timing cover, oil pump, pressure relief valve and associated gaskets. None of these parts are available. According to the dealership, all are on national backorder, with no expected date of availability or even a listed supplier. I now have a large white 7000 lb yard ornament. Dodge built these engines, but does not support them with repair parts. I now own a Ford truck with a diesel engine, there will be no more Dodges in my future.
