Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck

1 Answer

1998.5 Dodge Ram 2500 24 V 4wd 5.9 standard tran club cab truck. 140,000 miles. Well taken care of. Upon driving, the engine started a loud pounding sound which accelerates when gaining speed. After checking injectors we found 1 which spit out oil and did not make the engine run bad, we have not checked the back 2 yet. Also the oil has no residue of any kind in it. The pounding is consistent.

    This is a Diesel truck so the spark plugs aren't the problem.

Double check all injectors as well as the spark plugs. Make sure they are all sealed and the proper brand plugs. I would probably want to grab an oil sample from the pan(wouldn't hurt to change the oil if it hasn't been done recently). Let me know what find in these items, but it strongly sounds like you may have a rod knock. If this is the case, engine replace or lower end rebuild is going to be required. Let me know.

Change trans fluid & filter. If you have someone do the work, have them flush the system to get all old fluid out. Sounds like a valve body issue and a fluid & filter change should solve the issue.

1997 dodge ram 3500, it shudders in OD

Hey, I also have a 98 ram with the cummins and what you are talking about is when you are pullin hard in overdrive the trans is working to hard causing the shudder, when this happens back off the throttle and get back on the throttle to allow the trans to downshift. If you dont it will break the overdrive gear. There is nothing wrong with the trans it is just that it is shifting to early and bogging down causing the shudder.

I do know these are good for sucking in the gasket for the pan on the bottom of the intake and causing spark knock and oil consumption but not a throttle body gasket.
