I have a 2014 ram 1500 Laramie 4x4 and I get a vibration at 2000/2100 rpms. it has 1400 miles on it and has been doing this since new. I called dealer and service advisory told me they had a 2014 ram 1500 I previous week and they determined it is the characteristic of the truck. I am not buying it. need some help please!!!

Do you have the 8-speed trans?

This thread relates to a T/C noise issue that was present on 2010-2011 trucks with 6-speed trans. That issue was fixed effective with 2012 MY.

I believe there is a thread in the 2014 forum concerning the noise / vibration at ~2000 RPM. I don't have an answer on the cause (or cure) of that particular issue, but you might want to post in that thread instead.

I hear a noise coming from the right passenger side of the engine when the MDS/eco light is wanting to come on and when in eco mode when the engine is forcing like going up a small hill I get a lot of vibrations untill 8 cylinders kick in then it's smooth. Does this sound like the converter issue or just the MDS?

mds causes our engines to lug a bit, sounds like that is what is happening to your truck.

This is what my truck was doing when it was new also, in eco mode, grinding clunky sound like something dragging under the Pass. side of the truck. This started at 1200 miles and the dealer replaced my Torque converter after taking it in.

did anyone ever had TC replaced on second hand Ram?

I know powertrain warranty is valid until 100k whether you are the original owner or not but more or so how dealer would take it if you bought the truck at a non dodge dealer.

my 2010 sport is sitting at 91K km and I hear the noise but not sure how helpful dodge dealers are going to be on a vehicle that was not bought from them.

I'm glad I found this thread. I picked up mu 2011 last week and while driving in to work on Sunday I noticed a noise and very slight vibration at around 1500 rpm. If I feather the throttle I can get it to come and go. But it is constant in that rpm range at about 30-45mph

Does this sound like the TC issues discussed in this thread?

It does sound like it, it is a long thread but is you read through it some people characterized the noise like a frisbee scraping across concrete. That was what mine sounded like. I could also definitely make mine create the noise. Had the TC replaced been good ever since.

Hi Airportff, I am experiencing exactly what your experiencing. Did the dealer find out what was wrong? Or did they tell you it was normal? Is there and update, or TSB to the Shudder on light throttle to maintain 70 kms per hr? Supposedly it is a known issue, any updates of fixes yet? TCC and MDS shudder at the same time causes shudder under light throttle application at around 70 kms/hr, anyone? I found this post in the Dodge talk forum, anyone have similar symptoms?

I started this threat here (http://***************/forum/4th-gen-...own-issue.html) under "Getting some drivetrain vibrations" but decided I should start a new one tiled better to reflect the issue - to better help anyone else searching or having this issue

In essence at specific points in acceleration, usually the mid and near shift points, I get vibrations. Giving steady slight gas (like driving at steady speed in traffic), then accelerate a little I'm getting noticeable vibrations.

So took it dealer several times and after invoking Dodge resolution group, the service manager who was very helpful, and 5 start master tech team dealers call, I got a final statement.

They said "This shutter is a known issue and is caused by the MDS and TCC (torque converter control) activating at the same time. We are aware of the widely reported problem but have no resolution available at this time."

Two options: gun it and drive fast all the time or learn to live with a shutter/droan in your $30,000 truck.
