About Dodge

By 1920 Dodge became America’s second most popular automobile brand after Ford, but tragedy would strike the Dodge Brothers. John would die from pneumonia while Horace would succumb to cirrhosis shortly after. The demise of Dodge’s founders would lead to the company being transferred to their windows who promoted Frederick Haynes, a longtime employee to lead the company.  However, by the end of the 1920s the company lost substantial market share, falling into third place among U.S. automakers. However, the legacy of the Dodge brothers left a lasting impact on the automobile industry that has not been forgotten.

About Dodge Ram 5500

The Ram 5500 is so powerful that it can carry loads up to 6,000 pounds.  The suspension is well designed and those who have had the pleasure of driving the truck have praised its turning radius and wheelbase which is 204 inches. Most of these trucks come equipped with front drive axles that have large 1550 U-joints which can achieve a steering angle which is much steeper than lighter trucks, and for wider tracks a 5500 presents a turning circle of 581/2 foot. Additionally, the Dodge Ram 5500 has a GAWR (gross axle weight rating) of 7,000 pounds.

One of the most popular variants is the Cummins 6.7 liter turbo diesel, which comes with the option of a manual or automatic six speed transmission. They also come with a standardized exhaust brake, which helps a great deal when hauling loads downhill.

Common Dodge Ram 5500 A/C Problems

One common issue that has been found in the Ram 5500 is the air stopping while the truck is accelerating. Technicians who have investigated the issue have concluded that it is either the result of vacuum leakage or an A/C fuse has become faulty and needs to be replaced.

If vacuum leakage is the problem, you can tell because the truck’s air conditioning will stop whenever you press the pedal. Many Dodge owners have discovered that the problem usually involves a vacuum line which is connected to the vehicle’s cruise control. Once it is replaced, the air conditioning should begin working again. Vacuum leaks on the other hand are challenging to identify, which is why you’ll probably want to hire a professional.
