Default Takeing bets on whats going to bust next...

Back in October I think it was I bought a Dodge ram... here is a list of things replaced on it so far...

1 head replaced
1 head rebuilt
1 TPS
1 IAC
1 02 sensor
Full tune up

Just gutted the cat because I'm guessing it was plugged and installed a fresh 02 sensor and it already needs a radiator so you can place bets on that OR the hoses.

t case is making noise in 4 high (I'm guessing its low on oil) and I'm going to check that wen I go back out (waiting for it to cool before I put the 02 sensor on it.)

Since this truck is obviously making me broke who is going to be the bookie and take the bets on whats going to go next?

I say the rear end will need new Trac-loc additive. And also the water pump by-pass hose. The heads- sounds like you have 318

Transmission. Dodges are notorious for having the auto trans go at 60-70K miles due to break down of the torque convertor. Happened on my Ram as well as my boss's minivan.

And that's about $2200 to repair.

Then I lost my AC condensor and heating element about 140,000 miles...... Not cheap either. cost around $1000 to fix both.

its got 172K on it

and close on the 318, its a 360 but the heads are the same as I found out, and prone to cracking, the one replaced had weld on the outside already.

my wallet isn't gone, just wounded

looks like the previous owner kept good care of it, recorded all his oil changes, trans, rear end and front end were done every 60K and I'm guessing the trans has been rebuilt, if it goes out on me its gitting a stick, front axle is a D60 and yes the rear needs some kinda locker. maybe I can manufacture a bad exhaust manifold so I can get those headers...

hell, it hasn't idled good since I got it and now its smooth as butter.

Your all wrong anyway, the beather is cracked on the top side of the filter!
