Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
Drain coolant,pull radiator,fan shroud off.Need a fan tool to get that off.Need to pull ac,alt,ps and brackets off. to expose front of engine. Need crank pulley puller. Once that's done the timing cover can be removed. Hint,spring for a new timing set. loosen engine mounts and lift engine at bell-housing remove oil pan bolts.and reverse.Might as well replace oil pump if you intend to keep the van.

I'd recommend getting a service manual first. I got one for my 2005 2500 cummins from www.promanuals.net. I also had to to remove the oil pan and replace it with another one.

For the 2.8L there is no sequence. Torque for the bolts are 105 in.lbs.
For the 3.0L torque is 50 in.lbs. in sequence:
For the 3.3L and the 3.8L, no sequence but torque each bolt to 105 in.lbs.
Please don't forget to rate!

TO answer all your questions, the red oring is for the oil pump pickup tube, one bolt will fix that, RTV sealet is used in the seperation seams at the timing cover and rear seal retainer, 1/6th thick bead, 1/4" wide at seams, has for the trans inspection cover remove it for the repair, 5 bolts will do that part, and rear bracket, then the pan is ready to come off... GOOD LUCK RDJRP
