Default warranty issues

Anyone had the coolant resivor lid to pop open or auto dipstick not staying down? I had both problem, but after 4 warranty claims, the dealer finally fixed both by replacing the whole resivor/lid, new dipstick and dipstick tube.

That's a new one on me. Never heard of that happening before but that's not an abnormal procedure. If a part continually fails to operate properly, and they've tried to fix it, they replace it.

my coolant reservoir lid won't stay down, the service adviser always pushes down on it & it does NOT stay down, even for a little bit
I guess that i ought to mention it when he does it next time

I just bought a 2012 Ram Express 1500. My brother was looking over the truck and just had to flip up the cover on the overflow tank. Now I can't get it to stay down. I guess Dodge hasn't fixed the problem.

Don't know why this solution did not occur to me before,...just turn the resivoir lid counter clockwise so that the lid is under the plastic hood fascia. It won't pop open anymore.
