When you find the freeze plug that is leaking, you will need a sharp and tough instrument to drive a hole into it and pry it out.
The steel is about 1/16 - 1/8" thick.
Go get a new one to see how thick it is.
With a hammer and some kind of punch or tough screwdriver, drive a hole into the center of it and pry it out.
To put the new one in, there are 3 kinds I know of, maybe more.
One is simply a steel disc, shaped like a rounded dish.
You hit it in the center after it is inside the hole, which would hold it it.
Another is a cup shape. Again, this kind you would take a socket the size of the inside of the plug and carelfully drive it in, being sure to keep it going in straight all the way around. Liberally coat the hole with grease before you try.
Also, putting these two in a refrigerator freezer will help if you shrink them with the cold.
The third kind is a fancy plug of rubber and steel you put in the hole and screw it tight.

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Dodge ram 2500 diesel I can not get

First I thought it was the fuse panel or the power module but with our newer truck the computer told the power module not to send power to my A/C compressor b/c the A/C Clutch was out, (you can't replace just the clutch so I just had to replace the compressor and not the power module b/c the truck's computer told it not to send power this is the same with anything that goes wrong with the truck the computer tells it not to send the correct power to the part that is broken thus it seeming like the part isn't getting power, The power Module (fuse panel) is just doing its job replace whatever went out first or is bad, and the power will naturally be restored or you can go to your dealer and have the Power Module Flashed as they call it which resets it.

SOURCE: Trouble code P1740 on 1999 Dodge Ram 2500

I had the same code on my 2001 dodge 2500. The truck wouldn't shift from 3-4. I pulled the trans pan off and replaced a broken spring ($2.00). It is behind a thin plate with 3-4 small torq screws. You don't have to remove the valvebody. Only took me 45 minutes to fix.

I would like to give thanks to Jeff Russel from Teal automotive. He said this is a very common problem. He sells any part for any automatic Transmision and his prices are very affordable.
Here is a link to the website.

Hope this helps.

1999 dodge ram 2500 turbo diesel the trailer brakes won't work and I tried a different truck to make it was not the trailer any ideas?


We just had the same problem with our 99 2500 Turbo Diesel Ram. The problem ended up being the factory trailer cord recepticle near the hitch. When we unplugged the harness from the back side of the recepticle we found that the brake terminals had gotten hot and burned out. We replaced the recepticle (about $30 from Dodge) and our problem was solved.

2000 dodge ram diesel 2500 . What is a fuel injection pump mechnical failure? a fuel valve feedback circuit?


This usually happens when the lift pump gets worn and fuel pressure drops below 7lbs and the injection pump has to work harder by pulling in the fuel and will destroy the pump,your is probably a vp44 fuel injection pump it needs replaced and they are expensive 1200.00+ but also change the lift pump or change to a fass fuel system,if the lift pump went out and you replace the injection pump it will ruin it in a short time.
The injection pump is not an easy job to change or for a novice mechanic as it has to be set in time with the engine at top dead center,and then the whole fuel system needs to be bleed of air.

1999 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel. 4wd won't work


yes there is a diaphram and it may need to be changed and I hope when you blew the lines out that you put them back where they belong . The problem with the diaphram and the vaccuum lines is that they are extremely sensitive to moisture and therefore not very efficient. I know that you can get an aftermarket kit to switch it to a mecanical system which I guarantee will be the end of your problem. I would also take the filler plug out to see the fluid level, if nothing comes out fill it with the proper fluid till it comes out of the hole then quickly put the plug back in.

Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.
