1989 Dodge B250 5.2


Reliable of my cars


When I bought it the timing chain was so bad shape that it barely run. Changed the timing chain and the car got new life!

Transmission was once already rebuilt-ed, but because of wrong use (a500 overdrive has o/d off button, not on button!) overdrive unit went broke after 30 000 kilometers with it.

General Comments:

Dodge has always brought me back home, even when the transmission failured, it rolled to home and then stopped.

Tough to drive, pretty well performance, maybe because torque converter changed to over 2000 rpm stall version.

Got it always running, even when temperature is -30 degrees of Celcius.

Very warm in cold winters of Finland.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
