1998 Dodge Ram Pickup SLT 5.2L from North America
The Dodge Ram 1500 is a very tough truck
Well I replaced the track bar as it was worn out around 57k. At the same time the tie rod was junk, replaced that too.
Not a big deal, but the transmission pan was rotting off, and what I really love is that I brought the truck in for an oil change, and they didn't even see the tranny pan was all wet; very wet from the rotting. Dodge service techs must be blind. I'm shocked because they usually are quick to point out things that need to be fixed.
I love this truck. I have really had no big problems with it yet.
Seeing that it has the imfamous crappy 46RE transmission, I'm expecting it to have problems in the future, but surprisingly it hasn't had any problems, as I serviced the tranny, put new fluid in and a new filter.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
