1998 Dodge Ram Pickup SS/T 5.9 from North America
Love my truck
Intake plenum gasket started leaking at about 15-20k miles.
The transmission has always had a problem. It shifts fine as long as I'm driving normal, but when I put my foot in it, it red lines until I let off. Then it shifts pretty stiff after the rpm drop a little. Shifts like this in every gear. The Dodge dealer says it could be a number of things, just have to start trying things. They aren't having to pay for it though. Any suggestions?
It had the computer stolen off of it when I got it, but I got a new one from the dealer. Not so sure they didn't give me the wrong one. Do they have a certain one for them? Any info would be appreciated. Please send to email@example.com
Love my truck. American Racing wheels with Toyo Proxis 275/60/17's. They stick like molasses. Getting unbelievable mileage out of them too.
Does anyone have any specific factory info on how many were made in 98? Also how much factory horse power?
My truck is looking a little worse for the wear. Everyone in my family has driven it, but no one takes care of it like I do. After nine years in this little town of about 7k people, it still turns heads and still sounds great with the factory exhaust.
Headliner is starting to fall and the leather seats need to be replaced; I plan on riding my grandchildren (of which I have none and no prospects) around in it. I'm only 40.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
