Dodge is becoming more and more favorable in the auto world. The challenger and the RAM are gorgeous, they last, and the performance numbers are very impressive. We have been working on Dodge vehicles since 2001 and have compiled a list of common issues.
Noisy Brakes & A/C Blows Warm
The Dodge RAM is a big beautiful truck and with the 5.7L, has some serious power. The top issue we see with the RAM is noisy brakes. The good news is most of the time it’s just maintenance for the brake system. We inspect and measure the brake rotors to determine if they can be resurfaced. Then provide you with an accurate estimate to resolve the brake problem. If the rotors are warped we always recommend replacing them. Otherwise, they tend to warp again in the near future providing you with the same problem. Another common problem, more serious, is when the A/C in the Dodge Ram blows warm. In most cases we see at the shop, the evaporator core starts to leak. This requires removal of the entire dash to gain access to the evaporator core. We remove the freon gas, remove the dash, replace the core and expansion valve, and then reassembly the vehicle. The parts come with a nation-wide warranty for parts and labor, covering your large vehicle investment for the future.
