Question about 1995 Dodge Ram 2500

1 Answer

I have a '97 dodge ram 2500 diesel. I bought it new and currently it has 106000 miles on it. Recently it has developed a problem starting, sometimes it fires right up, but sometimes when I turn the key to start, it just clicks. I changed one battery and the other is still good. If anyone has any info. please let me know. When the starter turns over it is very strong.

Batteries should be changed as a group. over time they seem to "twin" off each other and wear at the same rate. You should also check your starter selonoid to be sure it is working correctly and is not worn out.

My valves are ticking on my 97 doge 2500 pick up it has the 360 magnum can i adjust them or not .....


Ticking sound is normal from a health diesel engine is normal.

Diesel engine that does a lot of towing or carry large payload can use a head adjustment every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I would keep tabs on the valve cover for oil leak.

Take it in the shop when the valve cover start to leak.

Do the valve adjustment,the valve cover and oil change at the same time.

Shell ROTELLA T Multigrade SAE 15W-40 is my prefer motor oil.

Starting problem in a '97 dodge ram diesel


Could be the solenoid on the starter. Next time it doesn't start, hit the starter with a hammer or other hard object, then try to start it. If it starts, replace the starter before it leaves you stranded

2002 dodge ram 2500 diesel truck shifts in and out of gear around 40 to 50 miles per hour


When your truck is shifting like you mentioned you need to check the battery cables. Better yet just replace the cables. Even a small amount of corrosion can cause a break down in the flow of current to the trans computer and cause erratic shifting. New cables should fix you right up. If this does not take care you need to start looking into "noise" from the alternator wire or other electrical interferrence. Another possible solution is to install a Hapi Box which clears interferrence in the wire from the TPS to the trans computer. It worked on my '02 until the cables corroded. I stripped back about 6" and found a mess in there. Good luck. (oh, Dodge will seel you a new trans to fix this problem. Be ware.)
