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 #1

Jun 102009

Ram 3500 Cummings

  • Manual transmission
  • 69,000 miles

I was having power loss on my 2002 Dodge Ram 3500 & It was still under warranty because I had the 70,000 mile warranty so I took it to the Dodge dealer and had them to check it out. The dealer told me the primary pump had burned the injector pump up and the primary pump was not under warranty so I had to pay for the new primary pump but not the injector pump. I paid $ 948.00 for a new primary pump. The dealer told me where the primary pump was mounted on the motor was building up too much heat & causing the pump to go out. This is a Dodge problem, they are the persons responsible for the building of these vehicles & should have checked this problem out before putting this vehicle out for people to buy.
