Well, the truth hurts.. for Dodge anyways. To bad.. This experience has left a very bad taste in my mouth. And they (The Domestic CEO's) wonder why people are leaving the domestic manufacturers and buying other products.. I do understand most all parts are sourced in Asia/Mexico now because of cost. But why is it that other manufacturers are able to build a better quality product for the same money? Greed...that's why... The domestic manufacturers have had a lock on peoples spending habits for decades...but not anymore..
I gapped .043. Didn't mean .044. And yes, brakes were bled in the right order. I'm not a mechanic but have had my fair share of roadside purchases. haha. I almost always do my own work. Haynes is working for now but will be ordering an actual shop manual. This is the first car we have owned past the warranty. We had always traded in before the warranty was up.
I will be here quite an bit with questions on things i am not familiar with.
Thanks for the tips
To late, we have been driving that piece of crap with both the driver and passenger side trim busted. At this point that is the least of our worries.. The $1500 in transmission repairs to fix a front seal...and then $2500 to fix 2 broken drums in the back of the tranny is what pissed me off. $4 grand in a tranny plus 2 tow bills...and that is still not rebuilt! I will not buy another domestic vehicle as my next purchase.. To bad for them.. I have bought Dodge/Domestic products for 35 years...no more. This is absolutely crazy how much it has cost us to keep this pile of crap running!!.. Meanwhile, my brother the import driver (Who has the same kms all highway) changes his tires and 2 sets of brakes and that's it past oil changes...
do yourself a favor and as soon as they replace it drill a small hole thur the side towards the front top side and run a small black headed screw thur it to secure it to the metal frame so it wont break again..
