    Potential First Time Ram Owner Debating on Trim Levels

    I've owned trucks for about 25 years including half tons Ford, GM, Toyota, and Nissan. I've also owned a mid-sided Frontier. I've never owned a Mopar product. Recently decided to look into getting a used 5th gen as I've heard so much about the nice ride and just want to try out the only major...

    Time to replace the crank pully?

    I heard a squeaking from my engine the other day and after investigating I think its coming from my crank pully , see the video I took. The belts look fine and the other pullies look good too, but the crank pully looked a little wobbly to me and the noise seemed to get louder the closer I got to...

    Air conditioning confirmed from tech that it sucks and there’s no work around.

    Hey all, I know its been talked about throughout various forums and threads. But who else has been having issues with their 5th Gen’s AC?? I’ve taken mine in twice now (2020 Ram Rebel) first time was the system not cool enough on max settings during the hotter months here in Sacramento. Second...

    Shudder and buffeting noise from etorque

    Right after taking my 2021 big horn with 3.6L etorque off the lot, I noticed a shudder feeling when decelerating. It always happens at 20mph, but only if you slow down from above 45mph. If you slow down from 35 mph, it won’t do it. The dealer said it was normal after trying to diagnose, and...

    Big Blue | 2021 Ram 1500 Big Horn

    Love this truck. Use it as my daily and as my mowing rig. You’d never know though lol. Only thing it needs is a leveling kit on the front end and it will be perfect. On real problem is the rear brake’s squeal backing up since I’ve owned the truck and the dealer hasn’t been helpful with that at...

    Mystery alert when starting and auto start/stop not working.

    Took it in to the dealer last week for 6K checkup and oil change. Since I got it back I noticed a yellow dashboard light that only comes on when I start it. It is a truck with a star over it and says disabled below it. The auto stop/start also quit working. When I go through the menu it says Not...

    Etorque not working without seatbelt

    I was curious if anyone knows if there is a way using alfaobd to change the setting where etorque will not work if your seatbelt is not connected. I like the etorque feature and would like it to work even if I forget to buckle up.

    eTorque impact on mpg

    How can eTorque increase the rated mpg by 10%? Is it just from the auto-stops or is there anything else it is doing to impact mpg while driving?

    MDS not working (I know, most of you don't like MDS)

    I recently Bought a 2020 Ram 1500 with the Hemi V8 Etorque. I have put on 2000 miles on the highway with practically no city driving, 500 just picking it up out of state, and my gas mileage is poor, 16-17.5 mpg. The MDS rarely activates and when it does I'm heading down a hill and it clicks off...
