problem #1

Jun 042015

1500 Laramie Hemi V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,565 miles


I bought this truck new from my home town dealer and it has only been serviced at this dealer and has about 16,000 miles on it. After truck went wide open for the second time in about a week, called service about it and they wanted to have me bring it in about two weeks later to be checked until I insisted that it was dangerous. They looked at it June 4,2015 and told me they couldn't find anything wrong.

When I left I noticed by the trucks dash read out that air was added to the tires and the drivers front tire was fuller than the other three tires.Yesterday I went out to make the air pressure the same so I started with the drivers front and when I was letting air out some kind of black liquid came squirting out and sprayed all over me.

Being a retired disabled Aircraft mechanic/Vietnam Veteran I started checking the fluids under the hood and to my disbelief everything from my window washing fluid reservoir to my radiator had some kind of stuff in them and floating when stirred up. I know it isn't normal and I will be going to the dealer after talking with Ram corporate.
