Default Just bought my first Dodge Truck

New here - I just bought my first Dodge. I've had about 10 Ford trucks and 2 Silverados, but never a Dodge until today. I bought a little '04 Ram 1500 Regular Cab, 2WD, Auto tranny with the 3.7 engine. All I've ever heard about the Ram trucks is that they get terrible gas mileage and the transmissions were known for going bad. I always liked the looks of the Ram, though, so I bought one. Anybody know of anything I might run into right away so I can check for it? I already noticed the pinion seal leaking a little bit.

i bought a used dodge just like yours. sometimes my tranny will stick in 3rd gear. so when i stop at a stop light it takes forever to get up to speed. thats the only problem for me so far.
