Need some advice from my fellow friends from ForumZ.
I just drove 2000 miles from texas to NH to visit my parents. I could take my wife's Dodge Caravan (I don't look cool on it, lol), but I chose to take my 2011 RAM.
About 1000 miles into my trip I start to hear a loud growling, rattling drone noise from the bottom of my truck, the noise did stop if I let up on the throttle. The noise starts around 69 to 76 mph and when I get on my destination I also notice it around 35 to 40 mph.
Around 1600 miles into my trip the noise became louder and very noticible.
I took it to a local Dodge Dealer in New Hampshiere and they took it in and called me back later with a diagnostic of a (maybe) bad converter.
They want to drop the transmission down and start do diagnostic it, (can take 2 weeks if need any parts, according to the service manager) but I told them that I had to go back to Texas next tuesday, so they just did a TSB 18-023-11 recall. I just drove it back from the dealer and the noise became worse in low speed (low RPM) after the TSB.
What do you guys think about this problem, could it be a bad converter? If I drive it back to Texas, Am I risking to damage it even more and leave my family and I on the road?
Need any advice. thanks.
My RAm is 10 months old and 13,000 miles.
