Question about 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck

I was changing the oil when i noticed some wires were frayed and simply hanging there. Upon closer inspection the wires led up in front of the fan and entered what looks like some sort of motor at the center of the fan. Thanx for any help

Basically... when they build a car... they use a wiring harness for all the options the car can have regardless of whether they are installed during the build.... so you will always find connectors that don't attach to anything.... is the check engine light on... or is there something not working... if that's not the case it's not something to worry about.

I have a 2007 hyandai azera 3.8 engine and the serpentine belt idler failed.

Timing covers are almost able to pulled in the vehicle but it will be much easier to do if the engine is out of the car. Pick your poison! Extra time but easier, or struggle and deal with possible oil leaks from front cover.

when the car is cool check the radiator hoses and radiator if the coolant is full then start the car with the radiator cap open. check if there are bubbles coming out of radiator if not then your car is ok. Stop the engine put thr radiator cap back. if you see bubbles your head gasket is given up due to overheat and you must take the car to the workshop for head gasket change.
incase of no bubbles check the front grill which you will notice a radiator is for the ac unit. inspect if it is blocked by insects or any thing. or simply use a pressure hose on it to clean it up. start the engine check the temperature with the bonnet open. WARNING !!!
radiator fans are automatic and will start soon as the temperature rises beyond normal. wait and allow the fun to be on with temperature monitering not to allow it to shoot up. if your does not start then you should seek help of car mechanic/electrician who should check the temperature thermostat fixed under the radiator having wires connected through relay connects fan. he should check thermostat,fan and relay to ensure and remove the fault.
if all are ok then start you car airconditioner and check the temperature which will go up but should remain somewhere in the middle approx depending upon the climatic condition of the place you live in.
any more questions plz feel free to ask

How do I change oil?

Get a drain container to fit under car that will hold more than 4litres of oil.
Drain hole is under front of car on bottom of engine on oil pan. 
Remove plug,  allow to drain, inspect the brass washer and file smooth both sides if necessary or sand it, if a plastic washer inspect and replace if necessary.  Be careful not to strip nut upon replacing. Don't overtighten, but a bit more than snug!

5w30 oil typically for all overhead cam engines newer than 1992

Do not mix different oils, eg: 5w30 and 10w30.
Do not use synthetic if not a fresh rebuild or not currently used.

** Slick 50 is an oil additive that puts a teflon coating on your engine parts and I swear by it.
Do not overfill engine - put 3 litres in and allow to run down and check dipstick.
When replacing oil filter be sure rubber seal doesn't stay on engine block.  Fill new filter half-full with new oil and put oil on rubber seal and clean surface of engine where oil goes in.
After filling engine, start and look for leaks.  If you cleaned everything you will notice leak easily.
Shouldn't be a problem unless you messed up seal on filter by not following these directions.
Check with your manual for proper type of oil but should be 5w30.
Good luck.

What is included to do a tune up on a 1995 with a 3.0???

you need to change the plugs, change the gear oil for the trans (if it's manual trans) or if it's auto and you have a lot of miles and dont really know when the last time the trans was serviced, bring it to a shop and have them reccomend what you should do with the trans fluid. Change the serpentine belt, do an oil change, air filter change, inspect your brakes and rotors, change out the gear oil in the rear end, inspect and replace your shocks if needed upon inspection, flush and fill coolant system, Check and replace plug wires if neccesary, check and replace water pump if neccesary.
