Many members will take the time to keep us updated with their vehicle problems and the fixes that solve those problems.

Many solutions apply to a wide variety of vehicles, some are very specific. I will try to label them as generic or specific as needed.

Please, if you find some other threads in help section with confirmed fixes, update this thread. For those who are asking questions, please come back and update your thread with as much info as possible. Especially details on HOW you found the faulty part.

    I hope people are seeing a trend here. Often what seems like obvious ____ failure, ends up being something stupid like a simple wire, moisture, corrosion, (very common) or something so easily overlooked like a u joint, slip joint, radiator cap, low fluid level, ect ect.

    Eventually it will.....but I notice that many do not read stuff up at the top unless they some how already knew it existed.  All the time people claim they've never seen the CAD sticky before.

    I figure advertise it here for a few days so people notice it, then send it up top.  {noclue}

    AGREED

    Plus I'm still searching for more important, relevant, and most importantly, confirmed repairs, from members who came back and updated threads. Thousands of threads go unanswered. Often times, the member still longs on recently, but just completely forgot.

    Not really looking for the "how do I loosen this nut" threads, more the "my truck won't start/run/move" threads that have all of the pesky difficult diagnostic stuff involved.

    I gave up on that thread and forgot to keep track of it since people kept getting side tracked. Cool deal.

    It probably doesn't help that we have so damn many stickies already, maybe some of those stickies could be referenced here then un-stickied?

    Maybe we should have a "FIXED problems" help board.  ;D

    Then "sticky" a link to that.  :P

    Tony, that was the original idea. Since that didn't quite work out, we adjust fire, and have this thread.

    The tech board had so many stickies that you had to scroll like half way down, so it got pruned, but I don't know of a good way to do that with the help section. It is a different scenario.

    Just a thought Joe but maybe you should put what the fixes are for in the posts so people don;t have to look at every one.  ;)

    Ya good idea. Tell ya what. If I get atleast 5 other members complaining of the same thing, I'll think about adding the fix.

    For now it's better that you read them all. Never know when you will need to know this stuff.
    Avoid replacing any part that you have not proven to be faulty through extensive testing.

    How about some of the many threads about speedometers working but the odometer quit?

    https://ramchargercentral.com/vehicle-help/odometer-quit/

    This one has a link to a nice looking 'how-to' for the actual odometer gear replacement.

     TBI Engine Starts then Dies.
     I replaced the 40 amp shutdown relay on the driver side splash panel(aka ASD RELAY).  That fixed the problem.

    another good one to add if you have a truck with the A-500 or A-518 transmission and are feeling and hearing a thumping/clunking noise when going over any kind of bumps check the bottom transmission mounts, i had this happen to me and it drove me insane i accually broke leaf spring bolts from over tighting them thinking thats what was causing it, but the entire time it was the botom transmission mounts, check them with a pry bar first if you get any significant movement replace them and i garantee that fixes the thumping/clunking when going over any kind of bumps.

    Well hello, this is my first post but I had to see if yall encountered the same issue cuz it drove me nuts. I swamped my truck and barely made it out runnin. Next day sounded like it was about to throw a rod but to my amazement the sounds got quieter and eventually went away with increased throttle. Strangest noise Ive ever heard come from a vehicle. Turns out the 4 bolts holding the flexplate to the torque converter had backed off. I pulled all 4 out by hand. Threw it all back together with some trusty loctite and shes good as new. 87 rc/318
    87RC 318 all stock... for now ;)

    New to Ramchargercentral.  Is there a way to "mark" or for lack of a better term "like" this thread so I can easily reference it later on?  Thanks for all of this info.
