Truck Issues

5

Asked by Oct 15, 2017 at 10:19 PM about the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently got a Black 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 (Single Cab) as a Inheritance. I
recently moved 550 km with it (only gassed up with it a few times for the trip)
and when we finally got here where we moved, the truck has more problems.
I know some stuff about vehicles, not too much.

Problems:

Truck when running sounds "Geary" like when a old 80s Towtruck has its
Tow Gears engaged (i remember how those are from my childhood)
(maybe the Power Steering needs fluid??)

Front Passenger side Wheel section "Jossles" us up and down around 40-50
kph. (wheel too small, Studs might be breaking?) ill check the studs
tommorow or something.

We tried to check the oil and it needs more i think (idk what oil it needs, if i
can edit this question at a later date ill put what engine is in it, i almost
remember what its called, 4. something liter)

Door will likely need to be replaced or maybe just the mechanism, driver
door has issue where it needs to slam a bit to be shut properly, passenger
door seems fine i think.



no other issues with the truck, if any more ill edit this question and hope it
doesnt shut it all down. we moved here 2 weeks ago and only used the truck
on weekends and some weekdays to move stuff (my brother is moving
accross town at the same time) i would really appreciate as much help as
possible, i might even upload a few pictures sometime to this question later.
