  1. ASK A DODGE RAM TECH!
    Hey guys I need some help on what's required to swap out an Eco diesel for a 5.7 Hemi in a 4th gen Ram. I've scoured the web but haven’t found any information on it yet. Has anyone ever done this before? Here's the back story (before everyone starts chiming in to say "just trade it", because I...
  2. Powertrain
    So I recently blew a line on my 05 1500 5.7 4x4 and upon repairing the line and topping fluids it hasn't regained 3rd, torque converter is also occasionally problematic as it'll stall out upon warming up when placed in gear, the transmission is obviously upset with itself, I'm only wondering if...
  3. Custom Dodge Ram - Complete Builds
    For starters, i picked the worst time to decide to try and buy a truck. Everything I was finding was rotted beyond belief and the seller was still asking for a good chunk of change. Then in June i found my 2006 Mineral Gray Metallic 1500 Mega Cab at a dealership about 2 hours from home. It...

  5. Gen 4 Dodge Ram
    Hey so I have a 2012 Ram 1500 5.7L. I had to have the motor rebuilt 2 months after buying it (warranty covered it) back in 2019. Shitty MDS ruined the camshaft. So I have had a bad squeaking that I thought was a belt or something but I was completely wrong. My mechanic says they cut corners and...
  6. Gen 3 Dodge Ram
    I have an 06' 1500 5.7 and this one has me lost. When driving 55mph (give or take) if I try to kick it down into passing gear the engine just revs up like normal, the truck down shifts, but very little acceleration. At times it feels like the truck has a split second misfire. If I let off the...
  7. Mid Atlantic
    I need advice on what to do in my situation - I'm moving to AZ from PA and have two other vehicles still paying for (truck is paid off). I really don't want to get rid of my truck but feel like it might be the best option. Should I drive it to AZ, ship it or attempt to sell it? If I sell, it...

  9. 5.7L (345 cu in) HEMI V8 Specific Topics
    Hi, I've got a 2009 1500, 5.7 Hemi that has developed a strange ticking at idle.(Not the exhaust manifold bolts, I've already been through that ordeal) The sound fluctuates in volume while it's sitting there idling and you can't hear it in the cab or when driving. It's only at low idle. It seems...

  11. LD RAM - General Discussion
    Last year, I purchased a 2011 Ram 1500 crew cab Larime. Fell in love with a used truck with out doing proper research, couple months past and the engine seizes up. ripped it out, tore it down and found intake valve broke in the cylinder from a bent push rod. Further evidence showed a bad cam...

  13. 5.7L (345 cu in) HEMI V8 Specific Topics
    Well I don't know if I should put this in the 5.7 or 6.4 as I have a 5.7 hemi stroker I have built. However that is the issue, it will start on the first start attempt but it is super rough won't idle for long before dying and this is after the tuner has played with fueling and everything to try...
  14. Gen 3 Dodge Ram
    Hey all, new to the forum here. My 2005 dodge ram 5.7 will not start in single digits. If it's in the teens it will start just takes few extra seconds. The rest of the year starts perfectly. It did this last winter and I ended up replacing the battery, starter cuz it fried, iat sensor, map...
  15. Another Show!

    Loading up the Ram with the JohnnyBox and the Gray Ghost. Heading to Gettysburg in the morning for the year's second and final antique car show.
  16. Now We're Haulin'

    Finally, a car show in June that wasn't cancelled. Heading to Coolspring, Pennsylvania; awesome museum there. The JohnnyBox is loaded with what I borrowed it for in the first place: 3,800 pounds of 54-year-old gorgeous iron. That's what the trailer weighs, too.
  17. Another Long Haul

    Another great deal on a good, cheap car. She likes this one better. North Carolina was a short trip.
  18. Long Haul

    What a great deal on a cheap car for my youngest daughter, worth going to Georgia to get it. Love those southern cars . . . no rust. Rented a lightweight trailer; the JohnnyBox is for protecting the antiques, and it's real heavy.
