Question about Chrysler SRT

2 Answers

I own a 2005 dodge ram viper pickup truck srt 10 which i bought 2 years ago. The problem is vehicle vibrates when braking at any speed over 20mph and the steering wheel shimmies from side to side After i purchased truck, about 2 months later in 2007. I had the brake pads and rotors repla ced with vehicle having 16,000 highway miles no city driving on vehicle. and since then I've had to change the front brakes every four weeks. Just today I picked up the truck from marino chrysler in chicago and they tell me again it's a brake situation I truly think it's not a brake situation but something causing this wearing of brakes please HELP.

This One is One Of Two Things

1. Change The Rear Brakes!!!!!! Thats Right When Your Rear Brakes Are Worn You Go Through
Front Brakes Like Crazy As They Are The Only Way Your Car Can Really Stop.

2. Check The Brake Master Cylinder If Its Off It Will Make Your Front Brakes Do All The Work.

Have you had the rear brake operation and condition checked?
if they are not working correctly it will make the front ones do all the stopping and cause overheating which makes for the pulsation you are describing. also restricted brake hoses on front brake calipers can cause this. even "sticky" calipers.

Free online auto repair manuals

Go to Helm.Com

Spend the big dollars & buy the factory manuals,
that are of value to you.

Anything free or any other source of info, is useless
& of no value & may not even match your vehicle

why are you guys telling him to check his shift cable when this vehicle uses a hydraulic clutch? it's likely 1) hydraulics are leaking or 2) bad synchros. try replacing the hydraulics and clutch first. if that doesn't work out, you may need your ****** rebuilt.

If your engine light is on find out what code it is reading. Do this by turning the key on and off three times leaving it on the third time. The code should read in the odometer. Then take the code and look it up on line or go to Auto Zone who will tell you what it means. I had the same problem, the code was 320, crankshaft sensor, I bought a new one and replaced it. No more problems. This seems to be a common problem with crysler/dodge vehicles.
