It does have rear wheel anti-lock brakes. The dealership was unable to determine a problem, but replaced the solenoid in an attempt to repair. This happens everytime I drive the truck after it has been sitting for a while. Oncoming car spun into my lane. The consumer stated adding an alarm doesn't solve the problem.
I would hit the accelerator and the truck would not move. The third time, they changed the filter, but only put silicone on the pan with no gasket. I was going 55 to 60 mph. The pickup has an automatic transmission. Please call for customer service and availability at 1-877-866-8372 ex. After a while, it would start to sift into gear with a very loud noise. I have taken it to the shop three times.
The only way that would have been a problem is if I had to go in the ditch to avoid the oncoming car. Truck just purchased and currently in the shop pending replacement tie rods, power steering pump replacement and any other fluid issues they find to get the components working in synergy. I stated that if it was a mechanical issue, that you may not get a code. I think it was in lockup and when I slammed on the brakes the lock up converter did not have time to disengage when the tires stopped when I braked. The second time, they adjusted the electronic shifter, but it didn't help. They are unable to fix the problem and do not seem concerned with getting it fixed. The lower portion of the right side steering knuckle showed a visible line that could possibly crack.
The ride height was low in the front, there was stiff suspension, there was a loose strip rubber above the left door, the suspension bar may have been cracked, there was abnormal scalloping on the front tire outside tread, there was an exhaust pipe leak, the exhaust system components showed signs of overheating. Watched the car and it didn't hit anything. Rack and pinion leaking which is connected to the power steering pump, which uses the same fluid as the rack and pinion--both have to be repaired and replaced. The problem started at 20,000 miles. I also noticed, that when I was coming to a stop, but didn't completely stop, the transmission would hit very hard upon acceleration.
For instance, if you lose a tire on the road. Truck will restart no problem. The engine idling was harsh when moving the shift into reverse. The pickup does not have all wheel anti lock brakes. Dodge had a tsb for a faulty transmission filter that would crack. Truck was just over 3,000 miles over warranty but Dodge would not cover the repair. The tires are studded snow tires.
In that situation, deep snow in the ditch plus the plow berm, I would have had to accelerate to get through it and keep the pickup from going side ways and possibly rolling. Now truck is stalling when coming to a stop but only when I first start the truck up in the morning. Vehicle has a non-serviceable transmission cooler. At a later time the contact's husband put the vehicle in park and it popped out of gear. Also during in cold weather the vehicle when in drive wants to take off by itself and you have to press the brake pedal down hard to keep it from taking off into traffic. Put in neutral, started engine, put in drive, accelerated and drove fine.
I was told that the tranny had a problem with the filter allowing the torque converter to back bleed and that they put in a filter with a check valve to fix the problem. Check engine light just came on today and truck is a the mechanic. Please call for customer service and availability at 1-877-866-8372 ex. . We are also having problems with the transmission, not shifting into 4 wheel drive--our prior vehicle was also a Dodge Ram 1500, in which we had tie rod issues and major automatic power transmission and power steering fluid issues.
Vehicle has a non-serviceable transmission cooler. Please call for customer service and availability at 1-877-866-8372 ex. If you have any questions please call. The problem was intermittent and occurred every month and a half. Braked hard, moved right, oncoming car spun back towards their lane, continued past car. I now have more power, but I am still getting some hard shifting when I slow down and then speed up. The first time I was told that since there was no code, that it was fine.
The tie rods are broken and connected to the rack and pinion fluid, which ultimately led to the tierods breaking due to fluid leakage. In drive and 4 wheel drive engaged. The vehicle was taken to dealer to be inspected. It has been to the dealership on at least 3 occasions, 1 with me duplicating the problem. Once I have driven the truck a few miles the stalling problem goes away. However, no repairs have been made.
