I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 and to fix this problem I removed the drain plug being careful not to damage the plastic housing. I drilled through the center of the drain plug so that I would not have to use force to get it out and crack the plastic housing. After you get it out you will see that there is a rubber washer that is used to seal the drain. NAPA sells a drain plug that will work to replace the stock plug. The part #605-1278 comes on a card that says for Ford/GM. but it worked perfectly for me.

Remove the drain plug and try not to loose to much antifreeze, Inspect the drain plug and radiator for the rubber O ring. There should be a O ring and when the drain plug get's removed it sometimes stick's on the radiator side and when replacing the drain plug, the O ring get's pushed in to the radiator leaving the drain plug with out a O Ring or the O ring may have gotten pinched and a new O ring is needed. Good luck and hope this helps.

What is the best way to change my antifreeze and what6 brand should I use for my 06 ram 2500 5.9 cummins diesel?


Most common way (done at home) is to undo drain plug in radiator or some will pull lower hose and let GUSH. Make sure you remove radiator cap when doing so. Any good ethylene glycol based anti freeze (Prestone, Peak) is rec.

Pull the blower fan motor out from under the dash on the passenger side, wash the box out with a water hose, then attach a piece of rubber hose over nipple that comes out of drain about 1" longer. Your condensate water is draining back inside truck through nipple to carpet padding

1999 dodge cummins 2500 front axel seals


you need to pull off wheels,brakes, rotor /unit hub bearing, both axles and intermediate shaft, as well as the vac disconnec ton the front axle tube. if only the right side leaks then only then only pull the right axle and intermediate shaft and vac disco. it is a trick with a miller tool to replace the seal. the left side seal is inside the diff and the carrier has to come out to replace it. pete

No, you don't have to remove the cab. Pull the radiator, A/c condenser, trans cooler and core support and pull it straight out the front.
