#2 of 11 Ram 1500 Catalytic Converter problems non stop 1994
Feb 01, 2008 (6:12 pm)
I bought this thing new and it has had nothing but problems. Luckily I purchased the 100k warranty BUT, the catalytic converter has been replaced FIVE times, the last time lasting less then 3,000 miles! Dodge was "unable" to figure out why it went bad THREE times in 100,000 miles and they could care less once the warranty ran out. Has anyone else had these issues and be able to find and correct the problem? It's also had several auto transmission replacements and of course, the nasty paint peeling issue with Chrystler could care less about.

I have a 02 dodge ram1500 V6 and I would like to put a set of true duals on it(ie remove the cat and run duals from the manifolds back.I would maintain the o2 sensor in the passenger side head pipe.Would this setup affect the engine control module? Thanks

I think it will, which is why most aftermarket dual systems start at the catalytic converter. However, I would seek a second opinion from one of the aftermarket companies. They might have a solution.

Thanks Dusty.I've talked to two People so far and they don't think it would affect the operation of the computer.Maybe the reason the aftermarket guys start at the cat is it's aganst the law to remove the cat.I would like to find someone to sell me the parts,I'll take care of the rest.Thanks again,Norm

Hey Dusty I just recently put dual Exhaust on my 94 Ram, I had the cat removed and had 2 1/4 exhaust with turbo mufflers installed, My trucks exhaust now makes a slapping noise I call it when accelerating, Ive heard a few other trucks sound the same. Do you have any idea what causes this and what can be done to give it that throaty sound instead of the slapping sound? By the way its a 5.2 2x4 auto truck. Thanks a bunch for any info!

True duals .......hmmmmm bad thing for Dodge trucks.....I've heard many and welll never really liked the sound. Most have a choppy or clapping sound, this comes from lack of backpressure. Adding an H somewhere in the exhaust should help a bit.
I have a 94 Ram 1500 and all I had done to it was gutting the cat, adding a 2 chamber flowmaster and ran duals out from there turned down behind the rear axles. Honestly the best sounding Ram I've ever heard ......it truely rumbles...often asked if I had a mustang 5.0 converted or engine work done to it

#11 of 11 02 Dodge Ram 1500 exhaust smoke/Question
Apr 06, 2010 (6:43 pm)
I recently acquired a Dodge Ram 1500, 2002 and discovered it had a leaking water pump. Changed out the water pump, thermostat and service radiator as required. Started engine and excessive white smoke continues to come out of exhaust pipe. Prior to changing the mentioned components, I started the truck a couple of times to verify leaking pump and there was no smoke at all. Your thoughts and recommendations are greatly appreciated.
