Customer Question
I have a 2004...

I have a 2004 dodge diesel 4x4 2500 truck and this morning my temp tran came on?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the engine? And when was it last serviced?

I don't think has been serviced. The truck is about 13 years old

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your B2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

We checked the fluid, which is good.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It shifts but takes a while

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
