Takata recall having many issues with 2007 Ram 1500 4X4 quad cab. Transmission isnt acting right. Something wrong with driver front wheel assembly, can not pump more than a few cents of fuel at a time when fueling. And just recently I could not get it over 30 miles an hour. Engine did not rev seemed as if not getting fuel

After the fuel tank is completely filled and the gas station refueling pump stops about a half a gallon of gasoline will violently spray out of the vehicle's refueling tube. This creates a puddle of fuel and often sprays on me. The spray comes out of the hole you insert the refueling nozzle into. I owed a 2006 Dodge durango with the same engine that had the exact same issue. I'm sure this is a common issue with this manufacturer.

Vehicle failed to restart while parked. Fuel system relay failure is being blamed. The relay is part of the totally integrated power module system which has also failed. Owner is thankful that become was parked at the time of fact and was not being driven before the sudden failure of tipm component. Vehicle remains inoperative at current.

I purchased my vehicle 7 days ago. I have discovered a dangerous issue that only presents itself immediately after refueling. At low speeds in, turning, or while maneuvering through traffic the truck will chug and then die. Leaving my vehicle without power steering and little braking ability. It happened twice after fueling Friday, and then again three times after fueling today. Two of the three times I was in heavy traffic and was almost in a collision by unsuspecting drivers behind me. The third time I was turning onto a sharp on ramp to merge into traffic. Thankfully it died at the bottom of the ramp and not at the top where I would have been in traffic. And thankfully my wife wasn't driving, because without power steering her and my two daughters would have likely straightened out the on ramp and found themselves at the bottom of a steep bank. If this would happen while crossing a busy intersection a collision would be highly likely with fatalities for sure. The problem lasts for about the fist ten to fifteen miles of driving, and dies at lower speeds 0-25 mph. I have read about NHTSA investigations into other Chrysler vehicles presenting the same issues, and where the warranties have been extended on the fuel tanks to resolve the issue. These warranties must be extended to the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 as well in order to resolve this issue before someone is caught in traffic and killed.

Since the truck was new it would spew gas from the filler tube after the fuel pump shuts off. There is an extended warranty on the fuel tank inlet check valve. Even though my problem is exactly what is described, because my VIN number search doesnt show my truck as being invlolved in the problem, Dodge will not fix the check valve.

Truck began stalling with engine shutting off at random: While driving, at stop lights, etc. Truck would not restart for various lengths of time. Diagnosed as a bad fuel pump. Fuel pump replaced with no improvement in behavior. Diagnosed as intermittent random no electrical power to fuel pump module caused by malfunctioning tipm. Replacement is $900-$1100. Told this is a common occurrence with Chrysler/Dodge tipms, with no guarantee of non-recurrence. Total loss of engine power due to a shut down of the fuel pump module while driving did not result in an accident, but the potential for an accident was huge. Dodge dealer does not acknowledge a problem with tipms, but their mechanic has communicated that there are so many issues with tipms, that they have the part on back-order. Please look into the tipm problem and Dodge's complete control over the replacement/programming of these modules, holding owners hostage.

Engine light and gas cap light keep coming on. Replaced gas cap. Light still coming on. Independent garage says there is an air leak in line. Appears to be a reoccurring issue with fuel lines on this model that leak because they rub on housing and not install proper by manufacturer. Local dealer says it will be 1,100 to 1,400 to fix fuel lines.

I filled up my gas tank with fuel and as I was merging onto the highway, the car stalled. It continued to stall for about 50 miles. Now every time I fill up my tank it will stall on me until I drive about 30-50 miles and the tank is no longer full. It is very dangerous and I cant let my wife or family drive it for fear of stalling and having an accident.

While waiting in traffic for light to change at corner of jackson bluff road and hwy 544, conway, SC, on 4 August 2012, truck suddenly accelerated even when brake was applied. Was able to whip truck onto sidewalk at jackson bluff rd & 544 to avoid an accident. It appeared that truck engine accelerated to as much as 2000 RPM even with brake on as firm as possible.

When I fill up my gas tank fuel always spits out after the pump shuts off. It does it at every filling station I have used. It is like the tank is burping.
