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.

After delivering vehicle to dealership for diagnosis, it was discovered that the inter cooler had failed. The dealership refused to repair it because of the installation of after market parts. The 2005 model year was the only year to use plastic end caps on the inter cooler. The replacement inter coolers are welded aluminum. The mechanic noted that he had replace other inter coolers on stock vehicles suffering the same problem I had. Not having any success with the dealership I contacted Chrysler and was informed that because of the reported after market parts I am not covered under warranty and that I am not even eligible to bring my vehicle to another dealer for their opinion. The vehicle is a 2005 Dodge Ram diesel with 20,500 miles on it. I have picked the truck up from the dealership and will be installing an inter cooler myself.

Ram 2500 6-cyl Diesel

2005 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel - the check engine light will come on. The truck will sputter and then it will finally stall out. This will happen at any time no matter what the driving conditions. The truck is in the shop now; it has been there for almost two weeks. This is the third time the truck has been in the shop for the same problem. The last time the engine stalled out, was after leaving the gas station, the truck started to sputter and then it stalled out. There were no accidents or crashes due to this problem, but it was only a matter of time before there was an accident. The dealership stated it was a computer problem. They did some adjustments, but it did not fix the problem, a new computer was ordered and installed and now the truck is not running at all. The dealership can not tell the consumer how long it will take to repair the truck.
