Removing the acoustically engineered OEM intake and replacing it with a bit of pipe and cone filter is likely to result in a decrease in bhp. Most of the independent before and after tests done on non-turbo vehicles find that reduces performance.

I was trying to find a picture for you but to no avail. The best thing that I can recommend is have someone turn the mode switch back and forth while you crawl around under the dash and listen for which motor is making noise. This will be external to the heater box. Once you locate the mode control motor, remove it. The motor will have a male shaft ...

It's not really a complicated job, but it needs a bit of care and attention. This is more of a general guide, as I don't know the details of the Ram engine...

Auto Zone's online vehicle repair guides can be found here: http://www.autozone.com/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideMain.jsp You'll have to create an account, enter your vehicle and drill down. Curiously it's not found directly under "Engine" but once there, if you look in the left pane you'll see a bullet for "Cylinder Head". A complete list of ...

Left brake light was not working. The brake light would come on when turning on headlights so I knew the bulb was good. Bam! Contact with the housing was the problem. Manually pulled the small contact tabs out to make better connection. Also swapped the right light for the left and they both worked.

Would there be a substantial enough of a horsepower boost to be noticeable? The most you could see from such a modification is 15hp. This would not be enough for the seat dyno to register, unless there are plenty of hemorrhoids to detect it. More then likely you'd see a measly 5-10hp, and then only at the higher RPM levels would this be apparent. You ...

There was no "best" way to troubleshoot this issue that I could see. Ended up taking it to a mechanic and he plugged in a new wiper motor to see if that was it and turns out it was. Short of having spare parts lying around to plug and check, this isn't easy to troubleshoot. The fact that it changed based on the temperature did lead me, in the end, to believe ...

You probably need a new wiper module. Direct from OE: Wiper Module - The wiper pivot shafts are the only visible components of the wiper module. The remainder of the module is concealed within the cowl plenum area beneath the cowl plenum cover/grille panel. The wiper module includes the wiper module bracket, four rubber-isolated wiper module mounts, the ...

I'm pretty sure the thermostat is stuck open. The coolant/engine won't heat up fully and you'll get cool coolant through your heater core. In most vehicles (and I'm pretty sure this is how the Dodge Ram's work) the coolant goes from the engine to the heater core directly. If the engine is running cold due to an open thermostat, only cooler coolant will be ...

Some cars have a small electric pump for creating coolant flow around the heater matrix. I don't know if your car has one of these, but if it has, it could be the problem.

What you describe is a common symptom of a dirty or contaminated oil filter! I am speaking of an "automatic transmission fluid" filter. it is similar to a motor oil filter except it filters "ATF"instead of Petroleum oil! When the filter is dirty or contaminated it Beaks down to a Thinner less effective consistency. At that point it can't develop enough ...

I have this same problem on a 1999 Dodge Ram 4x4. Didn't start doing it Until it had 50,000 miles on it. The 1999 has only one oxygen censor and throttle body. That said, itss not not a vary smart electronic system so I wouldn't think the system has a limp mode. I also remember years ago that a deep snow broke a plastic vacuum line under the trany that ...

Is it a gradual change? Like when you turn the speed selector dial, does it slowly get cold? Or does it just literally instantly change? Are there any noises you hear when you change from low to different speeds? This is important. I believe they use HVAC control units in those and that may be causing the problem. There are two motors, one for vent control ...
