Ideally, yes. As luck would have it, it was actually less hassle getting it replaced Mon, then it would have been trying to work around our local Ram dealer's schedule (a very busy and unaccommodating service dept.). Our next closest Ram dealer is almost 100 mi. away.


Happy for you it didn't leave you along the Highway in HOT weather!!!


He keep landing on chambers without a round in it each time he pulled. When he did hit a chamber with a round, it was a misfire and he was not stranded in the middle of ten buck two. He should be buying lotto tickets.

AGREED! Kinda like Sis in Law knew her Honda timing belt needed replacing. She was driving along Chuckanut Drive at 55 and the car just quit. I towed it to her Mechanic. He started working on it and realized there was no damage. He said the same as she should go buy a Lottery Ticket!!!

Some small engines have the pistons slam into the open valves. It is termed an interference engine. The 2.4 Ford 4 cylinder was noted to do that.

You are very lucky, I lost the water pump on my previous 03 four years ago in 98 degree heat, and it took out the crank sensor also.
Luckily, I was in a congested construction zone going 30mph, and just coasted to the side of the road.

The whole point of my post was to comment on Colorado Springs Dodge’s outstanding service.

Again, if all Ram service departments were efficient, responsive, and customer oriented, I’d be on-board with your critique.

Unfortunately, they’re not.

Are they that good or did you get lucky with the unexpected open window of time?
Still a positive outcome and glad to hear you are back on the road.

I’d say a little of both.

Just about all modern engines are interference engines.

OTRfun,
Glad it worked out for the best and sharing a good dealer as they can be hard to come by.

Colorado Springs Dodge is where I have all my service done. I did not purchase my truck from them but they are always fast in scheduling work. Recently my radiator cracked and I called them on Monday and got it in on Wed. for the new one. During the time they had it one of my dually fenders was damaged. They took care of all the body work plus fixing a dent I had put in it for no charge. They didn't like the first paint job so shot it all again and did a great job.
