oil leaks- down the throat of the throttle body- youll need a flash light- pooling is bad.
coolant temp spikes.
sloppy shifts- slow engaugement of gears

I have a '95 1500 4x4 lareme w/ 8ft bed. It's been a good truck. The starter gave out at 90k, the tranny (46rh, which are hard to find) started having issues at 130k, one of the headlights got full of condensation at 140k, & now the headliner is falling down at 150k.

Bought my black Ram 1500 4X4 with 48,000 miles on it. The only real problem I had was the heater core spring a leak. I did not go wheeling with it but towed a few trailers from Elkhart,Ind. to the Louisville,Ky. area. Also towed a few barns on a 7'6" X 16' utility. Wished I did not trade it, but that 2002 was a great deal!
