Default My ram is in the shop

Well lately i was getting a squeeling while idling and when the weather was wet and damp so i changed my belt the squeel went away so i thought last night on the highway my wife says to me do you hear that i say no she rolls down the window and i hear the dreaded squeel.

This morning i took my ram to the shop and asked to have a mechanic come out and listen before he even saw my truck he asked me how many kilometers i had on my vehicle i told him 81,000 then i told him i have a ram he said 5.7 Hemi right i said correct why he says they are famous for having bad idler pullies or belt tensioner.

UPDATE:

I called the dealer this morning they need the truck another day as they can not find or exactly pin point where the squeel is coming from even with the steathascope. As of now they have replaced the tensioner and the idler pully. now they have ordered another alternator to try that.

To my knowledge 2009 Rams do not have a lifetime warranty atleast not in Canada

hopefuly they are not charging you for changing the tensioner and pulley. They may try to tell you that it's a good idea to replace them now as they were getting old. I would tell them to put the original ones back for no charge - you never know, they may last a few more years and you may get rid of the truck before they fail.

Sucks you're having that kind of a problem on a 2009. They ordered the whole pump or just the pulley? The pulley is what would be making the squealing noise rather than the pump itself, and it can be replaced without doing the pump, but hey nothing wrong with getting a whole new pump at no charge either, sure hope it fixes the problem!

Hope they can finally nail this down with the PS pump. But new parts are always a good thing! LOL

That stuff should be covered under the 3 year part...hopefully the mileage is not over, but is you have an extended warranty then you should be covered, lifetime is not necessary for that I would say.
No we do not get offered lifetime warranty here. Although you can buy extended with no deductible that covers pretty much everything you can't afford.

In the US...2009 was the last year they gave a lifetime powertrain warranty to the original owner. Now its a 5 year/ 100'000 mile powertrain warranty.
