Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Dodge Truck V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles
Hi Guys, I have a Jasper engine in my used 1999 dodge ram 2500 truck that has a rod knock. (Runs but clanks ) I want to do a engine swap or would you recomend I have the crank serviced and keep the Jasper engine?( I guess they are quality engines. Expensive) Before the rod knock the oil gauge would drop to zero and stay there until you hit the gas. It works fine the first 5 minutes cold and then it will drop and the ding ding sound, alerting me of the low pressure. I had the local shop mess with it, new oil pump, sending unit nothing worked. Even a cluster swap. Refunded the cluster swap and labor because it did not fix the problem. My friend said it was because the bearings were going and letting oil through at idle, true? I am trying to keep the cost as low as possible. Thanks again.
have the same problem?
