1998 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles
Hi, I have a 98 Dodge ram with the 5.9 litre engine. I recently noticed it was leaking antifreez and brough it in to the local repair shop. It was determined that it was leaking around the timing chain cover gasket. I told them to go ahead and replace it. They also recommended and replaced the timing chain cause of some slop and the mileage on the vehicle.
When the shop was done they called and asked if I wanted them to look at the other problems and stated the battery is not charging and they hooked up to commputer and are getting transmission errror codes. Also the check engine light is on. I told them that the light was not on when I brought it in and every thing was working fine. The said that they did not do anything that would have caused this problem. The next day they called and said the truck needs a new computer.
My question is what could they have done that would have caused the computer to go? Truck was fine when I dropped it off there. Is there something they could have dnoe that htey are not aware of? Is there something else they should check before replacing the computer. What would be fair when it comes time to pay the bill?
have the same problem?
