Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a 2002 dodge ram slt 4.7 v8. when I accelerate and hit about 3000 rpm I can feel a vibration in the pedals and seat. a couple days ago the dealer had to replace a waterpump, radiator, and fan because they installed a faulty water pump and that caused the fan to snap and fly out the bottom of the truck. after I got it back I can still feel the vibration so I don't think it has anything to do with that. any ideas?

SOURCE: 2004 dodge ram is over

Water pumps can stall out, but do you have air trapped in system.
Had you recently had the system "open" to replace hose, thermostat, temp sensor. Some Ford and GM have a bleeder screw on a high point in cooling system to bleed out trapped air.

Check your trans fluid color. Since the trans cooler is built into radiator (automatics)

IF the engine is overheating the trans CAN overheat
IF the trans is overheating the engine CAN overheat

They share the same cooling source and trans fluid gets hotter than oil, but yet it has a wimpy cooler built into radiator. Maybe add trans oil cooler to system.

Also outside temp affects the cool down rate of the radiator, ie...hot air trying to cool down hot radiator/engine is less effecting than cool air cooling hot radiator/engine

The check valve on the fuel line at the filter housing may be leaking back not maintaining pressure when the engine is not running.

SOURCE: Vibration/Whinning Noise while drivin

check your motor mounts or your u joints. they can cause a noise and vibration. make sure your truck is in nutral when you move the drive shaft... if it moves at all or clunks that could be your problem. also an old motor/tranny mount could change your drive shaft angle and cause a noise and vibration

SOURCE: 2004 dodge ram 4.7 liter v8 overheating after

I have a 2004 4.7 dodge ram that the coolant gauge goes to 3/4 when towing my bass boat in the afternoons on hot days,I had the water pump replaced because it was wobbling at the pulley,covered under 7/70 power train.Acouple of weeks later towing again had the same problem,the turn on the heater and all is well after 2 to 3 minutes,replaced thermostat and saved and re-used coolant dealer put in and problem still there.At this point I contacted the techs at the dealer and talked with them and we all agreed radiator.Removed the radiator and took to rad shop and had it checked,found radiator plugging up,Now as to why.The antifreeze that chrysler uses is a HOAT type antifreeze,hybrid organic acid technology,with silicates and friction modifiers,this antifreeze CANNOT BE USED WITH TAP WATER OR WELL WATER OF ANY KIND,as it states in the owners manual.Only 1 dealer in this area apparently knows this but this is not the dealer that i took it to.The silicates in this antifreeze when mixed with the wrong water type will seperate and and become heavier and then start to gel and plug the passages in the radiator.This truck only has 46,443 miles on it and mostly used just to tow the boat.Hope this helps everyone else with this problem.Will be contacting Chrysler about this and the improper repairs that are being performed at their dealerships.Lester Atkins.tatkins8@cox.net.

WE HAVE A 2002 DODGE 2500 DIESEL AND IT LUNGES AT LOW SPEEDS. IT THROWS NO CODES WHAT IS IT


My 2001 was doing this...would also cut out randomly mid-acceleration and return to idle. Very fun when trying to get up to freeway speed! Turned out to be an accelerator pedal position sensor. Also threw no codes! Was approx a $500 (part+labor) about 4 years ago.

Bad vibration engine trans under load


seems your problem is within your clutch,defective part,usually a defective release bearing will cause gear shifter and pedal vibration but not as bad as yours,but by pressing on clutch pedal vibration stops,point to clutch!

Vibration on the floor underneath gas pedal


I would venture to say your exhaust is hitting your frame, or, you may need new motor mounts. The exhaust is what I would lean toward. If you can imagine your exhaust sitting under your vehicle, and the fact that the vehicle has a little age, the motor mounts probably give a little, causing the motor to move slightly on acceleration and deceleration, thus your exhaust is going to move, and may be vibrating on whatever its touching. Good luck.

Wobbling of car while accelerating


the u joints in the drive shaft. (CV joints on front wheel drive) more strss on the joints when accelerating so they cause the vibration. no stress/load smooth run. Replace the joints and you'll feel a big difference.
