If 20" tires weren't factory, your speedometer and odometer could be off by as much as 20%. Find a stretch of highway and watch odometer between two mile markers and check if it's accurate. Also depending on options, load, quality of fuel and regular maintenance have a large bearing on MPGs also make sure tire pressures are up.

2007 Dodge Ram Sticky Gas peddle


http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/results.cfm Here is a link to all the recalls on your truck.

As for the problem with the sticky throttle. Dodge has a issue with there throttle body sticking when the pedal is hammered. There is a relatively easy problem to fix. Basically you just get some throttle body cleaner, clean the throttle body, and you also get some grease (not oil) and you lube the linkage on your throttle on the top of your engine.

What is correct way to use the overdrive on a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 without ruining the transmission?


Always disengage when towing heavy loads. Always leave on for the best gas milage at normal freeway driving conditions. City driving does'nt matter much, either way
