Track bar bolts. Sounds like it could be the problem. Can you direct me to an on line picture? If I can find them, I can check the tightness. Thanks for your help.

Steering feels like something is loose

I took my 2012 Ram 2500 Hemi in for the recall work on the front end in February. I drove about 600 miles to visit my sons and I swear I could feel something through the steering wheel, like...

I've never used regular because the manual recommends the higher octane.

My 4.7 did 17 to 20 mpg on regular gas and 10 to 12 mpg when towing. But the engine sounded like it was going to blow up when towing on the hills so I couldn't run the A/C.

The computer says about 14 mpg combined on premium gas. When I tow I get about 8 mpg. Like I said we live where it's very hilly and mountains too.

Have 2500. Will trade to 1500 be worth it?

I bought a 2500 with the Hemi engine to pull my 18 ft travel trailer here in the mountains of Wyoming because my previous Ram 1500 with the 4.7l just couldn't pull effectively. Now I have a truck...

My problem also is that I started driving in 1967 when gas was 19 cents a gallon. If I had always had to pay $3. 50/ gal I probably wouldn't know any better and wouldn't care. Getting old is a...

I drive 78 mph on the highway and use 91 octane. I haven't paid attention to idling. I was reading the mpg forum and I am surprised that 1500 guys don't get much better mpg than my 2500 Hemi. ...

I am also looking to increase gas mileage. I traded my 2009 Ram 4.7 L for a 2012 Ram 2500 Hemi last year so I could pull my trailer better. But the mileage even unloaded is terrible. 16 mpg...

I had a 2009 4.7 l Ram and it was no good for pulling my 18 ft camping trailer in our mountains. But it got 18-20 mpg on regular gas and rode smooth. I traded last year for a 2012 hemi 3/4 ton to...

No I'm not running at full throttle at 4000 rpm. There's still more power that I could give it if I wanted to run it up to 5000 rpm. But I don't.
