2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 132012

Ram 1500 LS 5.7L Hemi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,000 miles


Very sad to read that a lot of people have spent a lot of time and money trying to resolve this. The truck was bought new and was taken regularly to Dodge dealer for the first 5 years we owned it. But as it was only taken on hunting trips it only had 5000 miles on it after 6 years and there was no need to try and keep going to the dealer.

I use it more now but this problem is really growing worse every week. I think I can stop throwing new parts at the problem thanks to what I have read here . I did ask if I could get a computer upgrade but was told to go to the after market. Thanks so much Dodge.

I have a DiaboSport tune on it with a after market exhaust system with new high output cat., new oxygen sensors, K&N air systems . I also have another 2003 Hemi with 230000 miles that does not lope at all, go figure. May need to get out of the Dodge camp

We have changed sensors, TCM, repaired wiring, and it still acts up, the transmission was replaced less than a year ago.
