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 #2

Apr 012015

Ram 2500 SLT 5.7L Hemi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles


I'm on the fifth power steering pump. The first two were covered by an aftermarket warranty at the dealer. It's really not that difficult to change, but only re-manufactured pumps are sold in stores. I was able to find a brand new pump on and it hasn't failed yet. I've been replacing it about every 10k miles. This new one is going on 15k and is just barely starting to whine. This should be a factory recall but isn't yet

From the day I bought it it had this problem but got worse over time. Now it's a painto hear on every turn.

Brought it in this year 3 times and they changed the steering box,steering pump and hoses and still has this problem. Now they say they can't do anything more on it. I'm waiting for the rep. to come here to talk to but I'm sure he will tell me the same thing. There is 3 trucks that I know of with this problem. The dealer here told them when they fix my truck then they will get to them. I never saw this problem on thus web sight iis there any one else with this problem? Please let me know if it gets on....... Any one can e-mail me for more info..
