problem #4

Aug 112017

Ram 1500 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,625 miles


motor cut off in the middle of the road, had it towed to 1 shop with a quote of 6500 to replace whole motor.

towed to another shop and they repaired the existing motor.

this should not have happen with only 51,000 miles on the motor. Found out later that the dodge has an aluminum block. and they complain about fords aluminum bed.

2 years out of warranty on the vehicle age, Local dealership never returned my call.

Ram 1500 SLT 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,110 miles

My engine stalled on my just as I drove into my parking spot at work and again right when I return to my house. I have to thank the man upstairs for watching over me and getting me home safely, but what an awful experience. I could have get into a accident and worse hurt someone else if this would have happened to me on the and I couldn't stop my truck. Dodge needs to offer some type of inspection program to investigate faulty TIPMs and ensure their customers are taken care of. There was a accident on the news the other day about a man that lost control of his vehicle and crashed into another vehicle killing a young HS couple inside. I don't know about you but i don't feel safe on the knowing these companies are putting these death traps on the road and no one is being held accountable. Any one else have a story like mine??

Ram 1500 4.7

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles

the day prior to the day this happened everything was fine. we went to go to the store the next morning and the truck would not start. thought that the battery was low so we had it jumped off it started just fine, so we went down the road and left the truck running the whole time and it died again. this time we cannot remove the key unless the truck is jumped off long enough to shut it off and take the key out, now its flashing in the odometer box NO FUSE. no one has heard of this around here. but the truck will not stay running for more than 15 min. dodge service dept. sucks and want to charge an arm and a leg to hook it up just to tell us its probably something dumb that a home mechanic could fix. i spoke with them and they said it would be a week before they can look at it and no loaner to use til then. something so simple that would take 5 mins. to hook up a check the trouble codes. no such thing as good deeds theses day just someone to make a damn buck and the bad part about all of this is i'm a disabled veteran with no way to get around town if i needed to and just cause i say i'm a vet does'nt or should'nt give me any special treatment at all i'm no better than anyone else.i just want my truck back and running.
