Hey guys, so I've got the 2003 dodge ram 1500 3.7L v6, I've always dreamed of having me a blacked out dodge ram and finally got it but damn I found out real quick why I got a good deal, the ball joint's and tie rod ends were well let's just say wayyy past their expiration, the tires were from first glance not bad but close look had bald spots so had to get 4 new ones, but I'm rambling my issues I need some input on are 1. Squeaky belt/fan?? I have greased all I could grease without covering serp. Belt and yes, the belt is like brand new I've seen others with similar problems and researched and searched and nobody has came out with a solution!? 2. With this type engine and exhaust system... what's some reasonably cheap things I can do to enhance performance and torque, i have acquired the tune up chip and fuEl treatments, transmission treatment as well! Guys any feedback would be very appreciated thanks!!

    If the belt is new the next thing to check is the belt tensioner. Over time, and mileage, the spring in the tensioner can wear and become ‘soft’ allowing the belt to slip. Might be worth replacing tensioner and belt anyway.
    The basics of performance are based on... more air in, more fuel in, bigger brighter spark and exhaust gas out faster.
    Cheaper Performance upgrades can be:-
    Performance air filter, thinner grade engine oil, upgraded spark plugs. A custom built exhaust system can also increase performance but does cost you more. Using a higher ‘premium’ fuel type will also help.
    Depending on you spend limit, after these suggestions your looking at turbo, supercharger and transmission upgrades.

Looking from the front of the engine everything on the right is odd number starting with 1-3-5-7-9. and everything to your left will be even starting with 2-4-6-8-10. The coil pack in front to the right will be 3-7-1. and to the left it is 2-4-6. On the rear coil pack to the right it is 9-5. And to the left on rear coil pack it will be 8-10. Hope this will help you.

SOURCE: Replaced front seal on my '97 Dodge Ram 1500, V6

Assembly of converter to trans and then tunit to engine? The torque converter must engage and slide into the front pump. The seal is easily damamaged if not properly fitted.Once the trans is against the engine the converter can be slid forward to bolt the flex plste.There should not be more than approx. 1/4 inch between the converter and trans bell housing if the converter is properly mated to the trans. Good Luck, Ned.

2001 ram 1500:3.9l v6 2wd. I have trouble codes p0300:p0303:p0304 coming up how do I fix them and would they cause my truck to bog down around 50 mph? It runs good and strong under 50 but slow to pickup...

code 300 random cylinder misfire, code 303 cylinder 3 misfire detected code 304 cylinder 4 misfire detected. check the spark plug wires 3 and 4 inline tester for constant fire. also check the spark plugs , clean and reset the gap if necessary. if all is good check the coil terminals for corrosion. if this is all correct then check the coil with a ohm meter for primary resistance by attaching the leads to the positive and negative terminals. then check the secondary resistance by hooking one of the ohmmeter leads to the center terminal and the other lead to one of the outer terminals the resistance for primary test should be 0.95 to 1.20 ohms and the resistance on the secondary side should be 11,300 to13,300 ohms. hope this will help!!!
