Re: Lost all gears while driving, transfer case?

Go the truck back on Saturday. Once they got it apart they found that the seal around the pump was leaking, it had been that way for 2-3 years because it made a very slight whining sound, it finally came out and lost all pressure.

Re: 14+ Possible Fan Clutch failure?

Here is an easy way to tell if your fan clutch is working correctly or not: 1) The fan clutch should stop spinning almost immediately when you shut the engine off, if it keep spinning the clutch is worn out. 2) With the engine off you should be able to turn the fan by hand, if not the clutch is lock...

Re: 3 Gen Stainless SRT Exhaust Stud/Bolt PNs?

I had one broken stud that needed to be extracted the nuts holding the heat-shields on were rusted solid so they had to be cut off. I could not get the right side header out of the wheel well so I d...

Re: Radiator Hoses: To Change Or Not?

Since you can't always visibly see if a hose is going bad I would replacement them just for peace of mind. I would also recommend replacing, if you haven't recently, the thermostat, the thermostat inlet tube, and the radiator cap and heck you might as well throw in a new serpentine belt while your a...

Re: 2006 Dodge Ram Power Wagon Title

The 05-09 PW is a Dodge Ram 2500 5.7 Hemi with one of the following packages SLT 26P or Laramie 22L. It was marketed as a distinct model but technically wasn't so when you run the VIN it will show as a 2500 SLT or Laramie. See my window sticker below.
