'95 Dodge Ram with a 318 and auto tranny. An absolute lemon by any standard. Stay away from MOPAR, stay away! Seldom does a week go by where I dont have a new problem, even after spending 3k on a new engine and another k on other parts and labor. Should have bought a ford.

Flfireman, do you thing the cold air intake makes a difference? I've thought about getting one (or one of the edelbrock round filters) to replace the stock setup on my truck once I get it consistently running smoothly.

You guys that think Ford builds a good product-just keep on buying them. The more Ford sells, the longer I stay in business, and the more money I have to spend on fishing.

I work in the transmission business by the way. I LOVE me some FORDS! I have about 13 of them here on the lot right this minute..

Here are some facts for you:
# 1 car in the nation for needing transmissions-Ford Taurus
# 2 car Mercury Sable (should be lumped in with the Taurus as it is the same car)
#3 Ford Focus
#4 Mazda 626 (you knew that they used Ford transmissions right?)
#5 Honda Accord '02 & earlier
# 6 Full size Ford cars to include Lincoln Town Cars, Grand Marquis, Etc;
# 7 Ford Trucks Includes full size and the Ranger. If the ranger were not included the Full size truck would not be in the top 10.
# 8 Front wheel drive Chevrolet cars-most of them share the same trans.
# 9 Mitsubishi Galant
#10 Nissan Altima-DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY OTHER NISSAN PRODUCT!
# 11 Chevrolet Trucks (S10 & full size, Tahoe, Suburban, Escalade all use the same transmission unlike FORD).

These figures are generated nationally from data collected from 1,400 different stores. All 50 states are represented.

I encourage all of you to run out and buy a Ford product. Not only are you supporting US jobs on the production line, but you are also keeping more Americans employed in the after-market parts business as well.

For the record, I own a Ford Ranger. I don't dis-like Ford at all. I just would not own a Ford with an automatic transmission. In my business I can get it rebuilt for the cost of parts.. I still won't own one with an automatic.

Of the Domestically produced trucks, we see Dodge the least. When the Dodges do come in, it is usually due to failed/failing governor pressure solenoid, and transducer (switch). 2 easily replaced items.
