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.

Ram 3500

  • 18,758 miles


Vehicle is 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 4X4 pickup truck with 6.7L diesel engine. I was driving down hill on slippery road with foot off throttle, when applied gentle throttle pressure, the engine jerked violently several times, and causing the rear wheels to brake traction and the vehicle to fishtail. This event is intermittent, most often happens when driving with light throttle, then lifting off throttle to slow down, and when press throttle to accelerate, experience several rapid shudders or jerks from engine before the engine pull smoothly again. Vehicle has had this condition since new. This condition has been reported to two Dodge dealers, are unable to correct it, local dealer said he had same complaint from 6 or 7 other Dodge 6.7 L diesel owners.
