Got a 98 ram 1500, it's been dragging ass on me lately. It is very sluggish off the line and when I hooked it up to the camper this weekend it was havin some trouble.:4-dontknow::4-dontknow:Could that be because my diff is going out or possibly wheel bearings?

I would run a can of SEA FOAM through the fuel system

you can decide if you want to put some in your crankcase or not, that is up to you

If it was your diff, you would know (hear) it.

I agree with a seafoam treatment...do you have a check engine light on?

Highly doubt it's your diff. Most common thing with the Magnum engines is sludge build up, so I would follow the recommendation of a full seafoam treatment to clean out the combustion chambers, intake plenum, and fuel system. I would also do a check on your tranny to make sure the fluid is in good condition, when was the tranny serviced last?
