I have a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500
with the 5.9l diesel. The truck will start when it is cold, but if at operating temperature it is very hard to start, or won't start at all. I just changed the fuel filter within the last 500 miles or so.
JA: Good to know. The mechanics have tons of experience dealing with this sort of thing. How old is your transmission?
Customer: The transmission has between 10,000 to 15,000 miles on it since a rebuild.
JA: Ok. We'll get you to one of the go-to transmission guys. Other than the problems you mentioned, how has the car been running?
Customer: Once it starts, it runs good. Shifts good, plenty of power.
JA: Noted. I'll pass this info along to the mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. Anything else I can tell the Dodge Mechanic before I connect you two?
Customer: I run fuel treatment in it year round, when it is forecasted to be below 0 degrees, I double the amount.
JA: Got it. Let's get this figured out. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dodge Mechanic about your situation and connect you two. You'll be on the road in no time.
