1992 Dodge Ram 5.7 Cummins turbo diesel from North America


Great engine/drive-rain, not so pretty truck, great workhorse


Transmission would not shift into OD, turned out to be the Throttle Position Sensor, which was something like $300, but the previous owner obviously neglected the truck and there were quite a few things that just "weren't right." The wiring on the thing was a nightmare, and the initial tranny work cost over $700 to work out, but it seemed to be primarily neglect that caused the failure.

General Comments:

Strong, strong truck. Dana 70 in the front. Speaks for itself and the Cummins engine is legendary. Dodge didn't do so great a job on the details, electrical is constantly falling apart, windows not working, that sort of thing. But the truck is for working and hauling. I would recommend a tranny upgrade to anyone looking to do heavy hauling with it, or you'll wind up with a transmission that can't handle the output of the beefy engine.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
