  1. 98.5-02 Non-Powertrain
    Hello, first time posting and was hoping for some help. I had a coolant flush done at a shop on my '01. I checked the level a few weeks later and it's low, but no signs of any leaks. Also, the supposedly fresh coolant looks dark and cloudy while it's cooling (2nd pic). Once its fully cooled the...

    When I first start up my truck, It starts perfectly fine and runs fine, but the airbag light will flash for about a minute and the oil pressure gauge wont move, nor the battery gauge but the RPM will move, but after a couple seconds all the gauges will drop to 0 almost like the truck is no...

    I hit the ditch in my 2001 dodge 2500. Did some body damage and my alignment was off brought to local tire shop to have alignment done and they told me my frame was bent. I find it very hard to believe that the frame would bend that easy. I’m thinking maybe a front end rebuild kit would align...

The gauges on the instrument cluster work intermittently, specifically the fuel gauge, MPH gauge, but mostly the RPM gauge.They work normal for a bit, then go to zero, then normal again. While driving, the "CHECK GAGES" and "WAIT TO START" lights come on each...

    Hey ya'll. I recently bought a 1998 2500 Off eBay. I recieved the truck today and to my surprise it has no back doors. I checked the title and matched the VIN. The title reads 1998 but the sticker on the driver side door reads "DATE OF MFR 11-97". So here's my question, is there an issue with...
  6. 3rd Gen. Performance Parts Discussion
    Hi, I have read you can install a 2nd gen intake horn on the 3rd gens with two longer bolts. Looking at the 2nd gen Banks High ram and the 3rd gen Banks Monster Ram 3", the 2nd gen looks like it is wider (from pictures). Can anyone confirm this? They are pretty much the same price and I figured...

  12. 98.5-02 Powertrain
    I began to rebuild my hydro-boost and when I took it apart, I lost the check ball for the gas actuator check valve. I doubt I can find it again and I was hoping somebody had a size or dimensions of that tiny ball bearing.
  13. 98.5-02 Non-Powertrain
    I noticed my steering box has a very slow leak in it, which steering boxes are recommended? I'm currently looking at a red head replacement, although I'm still not entirely sure if I have a T or Y style steering set up. I know I could probably just get a new seal kit, but after 165k on the...
