    3G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    as long as the tick stops completely after 30 to 60 seconds. Save your money and drive it.
  2. 2005 Dodge Ram, purchase or not?

    3G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    I would not even consider it without a Hemi ... 4.7 is ticking time bomb
  3. Shudder at Take-off

    3G Dodge RAM - Drivetrain Talk
    Loose u joint flange can cause a shudder as well.
  4. please read..cv axle

    3G Dodge RAM - Drivetrain Talk

  5. Jet fuel

    3G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    Years ago in our snowmobiles when playing with high compression engines and jetting down we would mix 4 gallons of regular gas to 1 gallon av gas to boost octane and to remove any moisture from fuel.
  6. 04 hemi radiator

    3G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    I never have cleaned out a new rad. Never gave it much thought. 10,000 miles since flush. Coolant still good but I'd fill with new coolant anyway.
  7. 4.7 Failure...I need help from a Ram Pro, PLEASE

    3G Dodge RAM - Drivetrain Talk
    I have read more than a few times that misfire codes on 4.7 turn out to be thrown rockers arms. Being you have misfire codes on both banks I kinda wonder if that is it? You could pull valve covers to see.
  8. Does an Axle Nut have a washer behind it?

    3G Dodge RAM - Drivetrain Talk
    The factory nut is one piece and has a washer built into it. The aftermarket nut is just a nut with no washer. Find a new alignment shop.
  9. Rear axles interchangeable?

    3G Dodge RAM - Drivetrain Talk
    No factual info here but my guess is yes it will work.
  10. First Ram, Need Suggestions

    3G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    I would not even consider a 3rd generation Ram without a Hemi. Just my opinion. Good Luck
  11. 04 hemi radiator

    3G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    I've used Spectra with good luck. But these days it's a crap shoot on parts? On the rad I'd buy locally with good warranty. That way easy to return. Use RA prices to compare so you don't get fleeced. Water pump tough call but like you say if its not broke why fix it. Make sure the rad you buy...
  12. Moisture under oil cap?

    3G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    If you drive in cold temps in the north it won't matter, short or long trips the oil fill tube will get contaminated . Mine used to get loaded as well. Then I wrapped my fill tube with sticky plumbing insulation tape years ago. Now I get very minimal slime/water droplets in it. Guessing 70 to...
  13. auburn rear shake

    3G Dodge RAM - Drivetrain Talk
    Another thought. Pull your driveshaft and get the balanced checked. Maybe driveshaft is bent or unbalanced and is only showing the signs since the 4.56 install.
  14. auburn rear shake

    3G Dodge RAM - Drivetrain Talk
    FYI your auburn should use 80w90 non-synthetic gear oil treated with GM or Ford friction modifier at a rate of 3oz of additive to 1 quart of gear oil. I would start by making sure the oil is treated as mentioned. If your installer has everything setup right. I have my doubts. The proper ratio of...
  15. Best header gaskets for my long tubes?

    3G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    IDK. I said the VR ones are the same as the dodge factory ones. I have no idea what the $60 ones are like? But if "all these guys" are referring them and it makes you feel better get them.
  16. Best header gaskets for my long tubes?

    3G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    I used Victor Reinz from Rock Auto. They are the same as the Dodge factory ones. https://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=2654080&cc=1413414
  17. Transmission blew up?

    3G Dodge RAM - Drivetrain Talk
    Not much else I can say. Except "let the buyer beware" Good Luck with it.
  18. A Shake in 4WD

    3G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    With wheels off ground. You could try and rotate the cv back and forth by hand watching for excessive play?
  19. Cv joint help

    3G Dodge RAM - 4X4 Talk
    There should be a circle clip on the stub shaft to hold the cv joint on. When you slide the shaft on you would use a little extra force to pop the shaft into the locked position.
  20. Odd coincidence: Engine Overheating

    3G Dodge RAM - General Talk
    If your confident the heater core is the leak spot. I'd try changing out the t/stat. Make sure to bleed the system good. 4.7 might take some time to do. I find jacking up the front end and reving engine helps. That's a bummer on the coil nut. You should be able to rig something up to hold the...
