WILMINGTON, DELAWARE -- I have had this truck since new. I drive this truck daily to and from work about 40 miles round trip. Developed a slight coolant leak from cracked reservoir bottle. Replaced bottle with new one. It has 124,000 miles and started running poorly & check engine light came on. I had scan test performed and found engine misfire code on cylinder #4. Replaced the plugs. Ran great for about a month (800 miles). Then during a trip to work the truck started running bad then horrible and had loud banging sound. It was so bad I had to shut it down.

I had it towed to my repairman and after checking he said it appeared to have a head gasket or cylinder head problem as well as a valve seat(s) may have dropped to explain the banging sound. He said this was fairly common on these engines. He quoted me a worse case scenario to replace two cylinder heads at $1200.00 What should I do?
Dashboards are cracking on 2002 Dodge Rams. I have read that I am not the first to experience this problem.

Chrysler should do a recall on this problem since the American people were good enough to bail them out when they were having financial problems.
I have 2001 Dodge Dakota 2 wheel drive. At 40,000 miles I had to replace the wheel bearings, upper and lower ball joints and tie rod ends. I had after market ones put in and at 130,000 there still going. 3 Replies - Latest reply on 02/20/2010Add reply

ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- I have had my Dodge Ram for 5 years now. In that time I have had a faulty spare tire wench (jammed and was unusable), faulty power steering hoses (leaked), faulty air conditioning unit (broke internally twice), faulty door seal (leaks when it rains), faulty grab handle on the drivers side door pillar(it came off in my hand), and faulty sunglass holder latch (fell off). I will NEVER buy another Dodge product as long as I live. The blend door on my ac unit literally fell apart. After spending $1000 to repair it, the recirculation door has fallen apart. Now they want me to pay $800 for them to fix their own cheap workmanship. Dodge the Dodge!6 Replies - Latest reply on 05/15/2007Add reply
