Truck shows raises money for, kicks off Manatee Toys for Tots drive - Sun Sentinel

Five-year-old Cole Newman had never been to a truck show but he loves watching them on TV and listening to songs about them, said his mom, Michella Newman. That's why she made the drive from Clearwater to the DeSoto Speedway to see the trucks. "I saw big ones and I saw super-huge ones," Cole said. Shane Ladwig of Sarasota was proudly sitting on the back of his recently decked-out Ford F-350. "I built this truck four days ago and I love it," Ladwig said. "My brother helped me design it. ". Having just completed five years of service in the U. S. Air Force, coming home to buy a diesel truck was exciting, he said. "They're contagious," said his father, Jeff Ladwig, adding he and his other son, Kyle, also have F-350s. As proud as they were of their trucks, they were equally proud of all the toys they brought, they said. Organizers said they were thrilled with the turnout despite not collecting as many toys as last year's truck show. Demand for toys from families in need is so high, volunteers must begin the drive far in advance of Christmas. "There's so many people that love trucks, so why not put something on that they love to do and get some toys for the kids. Since then, Toys for Tots has become an official activity of the Marines and of the Marine Corps Reserve. The drive also accepts cash donations, and volunteers were walking around collecting to make it possible to buy wrapping paper. Source: www.sun-sentinel.com

Jeep sales hit record high in July - WNWO NBC 24

July was a record-setting month for Jeep sales -- up 22. 9 percent from July of 2014. Jake Mallett, a sales manager for Yark Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, says the trend is especially true in Northwest Ohio. It's also a four-wheel drive vehicle for the wintertime. They're both great Toledo-made vehicles," he said. Michael Glynn just leased a new Jeep last month. Glynn says he's been driving Jeep vehicles for several years. It's a trend many are taking part in despite recent negative publicity for Jeep's parent company Fiat Chrysler. news of recalls, which include some Jeeps, and a recent Wired Magazine story showing how a Jeep Cherokee can be hacked remotely. A separate sales representative at Yark said they receive plenty of questions about the hack, and to an extent the recalls, but says most customers are satisfied with what Fiat Chrysler is doing about the issues. As a result, they do not believe any of the negative publicity will break Jeep's streak of 22 consecutive months of increased sales. Fiat Chrysler has said fixing the remote hack issue is relatively simple. NBC 24 provides coverage of news, sports, weather and local events in the Toledo, Ohio area, including Sandusky, Fremont, Findlay, Whitehouse, Maumee, Holland, Lima, Delta, Napoleon and Defiance, Ohio and Adrian, Monroe.

  • Dodge Ram 1500 - Features - Performance - Four-Wheel Drive

    Life isn’t always a smooth road. But Ram’s legendary off-road capability makes it a nonissue. Selecting 4x4 is as easy as pushing a button. The 4-HI setting locks both driveshafts for extra grip and pulling power to give you confident handling on slippery, wet and gravel terrain. For the meanest grounds out there, the 4-LO position delivers a 2.72:1 gear reduction ratio for stump ripping, mountain climbing grip and power. The multi-link coil suspension provides outstanding rear suspension articulation so you can go off-roading where you want, when you want, without worrying about getting hung up or bottoming out.

    From the 1998 Owners Manual:   Transfer Case Shifting Procedure: 

    2H to 4H or 4H to 2H Shifts between 2H and 4H can be made while the vehicle is moving or stopped. If the vehicle is moving, shifts can be made at any speed up to 55 mph. This shift will be easier if you momentarily release the accelerator pedal. Apply a constant force while shifting the transfer case lever. NEVER drive in 4H on dry, paved roads. 

    NOTE:  During cold weather (below 30 F) it may be more difficult to shift the transfer case while the vehicle is moving. If so, stop the vehicle and shift. Move the vehicle slightly forward or backward to complete positive engagement of the gears. 

    4H to 4L or 4L to 4H 

    Slow the vehicle to under 3 mph (5 kmh), shift an automatic transmission to N (Neutral) or depress the clutch on a manual transmission. Shift the transfer case lever to the right and pull firmly down into 4L. Do not pause in transfer case N (Neutral). 

    NOTE:  Pausing in transfer case N (neutral) in vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission may require shutting the engine off to avoid gear clash while completing the shift. If difficulty occurs, shift transmission to Neutral (N), hold foot on brake, turn engine off, and THEN make the shift to desired mode. 

    Do not attempt to shift to or from 4L while transmission is in gear or clutch is engaged.

     > Is the front diff always engaged and 4WD controlled only by the> transfer case? If not, then how is the front diff engaged?

      As you may have noticed, there are no hubs (manual or automatic) on the 4x4 Ram.

      The drivers side front wheel is permanently connected to an axle shaft which runs to the differential. 

    The passengers side has a two piece axle, one half permanently connected to the wheel, one half (intermediate axle shaft) connected to the differential. The two halves meet in the middle of the passenger side axle tube (that bulge on the axle tube is where the axle disconnect lives).  The two halves are connected together for 4X4 operation by the Center Axle Disconnect mechanism shown at the right. CAD mechanism, click for larger image The inner axle shaft has a nose, which fits into a socket in the end of the outer axle shaft. The photo at the right shows the two ends which meet at the shift collar. A needle bearing in the outer axle shaft socket allows the inner and outer axle shafts to rotate independently. Axle shaft ends

     In 2WD, the axle disconnect keeps the two passenger side axle halves independent. The driver side axle happily spins the side gear in the differential, but because the differential is open and there is no solid connection on the passenger side, the side gear simply spins the diff's spider gears, which then spin the passenger side inner axle shaft backwards. Neither the differential's ring gear nor the front driveshaft will turn while in 2WD.

    With me so far? OK, now when you shift into 4WD it gets a little more complicated...

    So, you don't like the vacuum CAD system because it doesn't allow 2WD-Low, or doesn't engage fast enough, or you really want manual hubs. What can you do?

Bob Verhoef's 2WD LOW - a vacuum switch system that prevents the CAD from locking when the transfer case is in low range.

    In 94 and newer Dodge trucks, the front axles always turn. There are no hubs at the front wheels to engage/disengage. Inside the front axle housing, on the passenger side, the front axle is split. There is a spline coupling that slides back and forth to connect/disconnect the front axle. This spline is controlled through the transfer case shift lever.

    Subject:    [RAM] Axle DisconnectDate:        Wed, 04 Jun 1997 11:31:59 +0000From:       Chris Siano <Chris_Siano@iacnet.com>To:           ramtruck

    You are correct that the axle disconnect does wear more than the old hubs. Basically, you are spinning everything but the diff and the front driveshaft. The outer axles spin with the wheels.  The side gear on the front diff is turned by the axle on the driver's side.  This side gear spins the spiders and the opposite side gear.  The central axle shaft is then spun opposite to the wheels by the diff.  (same action as rotating a tire on a lift and watching the other turn backwards.)

    When you shift, a mechanical interlock activates the front driveshaft.  This in turn slows the central axle and then rotates it in the same direction as the wheels.  At this time, a vacuum line is switched that places pressure on a diaphragm behind the front axle on the passenger side (looks like a little power brake diaphragm).  As the central axle reaches the same speed as the outer axle on the passenger side, the pressure on the diaphragm slides a connecting collar over the splines of the two axles and links them.  Similar to the way a hub moves the splined collar over the end of the axle.

    When you disengage, it all works in reverse.  You don't have to stop, back-up, or anything else.

    Sometimes, the 4WD light stays on, or fails to come on.  This is a great indicator.  What it means is that there is a difference in speed between the two axle ends, and the vacuum can't move the collar.  Burping the throttle, twisting the wheel side to side, or shifting the 4WD again generally releases the pressure.

    2 things.  1) It is easier to shift while moving.  Even into 4LO, a slight roll makes the shift easier.  If you are stuck, and it won't shift, turn the steering wheel side to side as you burb the throttle to get the axles to line up.  When at a stop, it is very tough to line up non-moving splines.

    Pros and Cons

    Fairly strong.  The size of the axle shaft at the disconnect is significantly stronger than a hub end could ever be.  The outer axle splines can have a much tighter tolerance and thus distributes the load better.  The weak point is the bearing carrier design instead of using discrete inner and outer bearings.  In the early Jeeps, there was close to 4" between the inner and outer bearings to support side loads.  In the Ram, there is only 1/8" between them.  This makes rim backspace selection critical, and requires much higher tolerances in the bearings themselves.  Also, with no way to service the bearings without a 20 ton press, you have no way to prevent failure without spending $300 for a new carrier.

    Since the use of 4WD requires vacuum, a leak, or destruction of the lines can render the 4WD inoperative.  However, the lines are fairly well protected, and failures are rare.  The vacuum switch is a known weak point.  The switch is a little tower on the transfer case with four lines coming from it.  The switch is activated by the transfer case when a lever inside the case presses a plunger at the base of the switch.  Then, a spring in the switch extends the plunger when the lever is retracted.  The problem is that the plunger is rounded to ease the lever's action.  This rounded part can be easily jammed inside the switch by the standard gunk in the transfer case.  When this happens, the interlock and the 4WD light will not disengage.  It is an easy fix by just un screwing the switch and cleaning it, but when it happens, you can feel the extra drag of the front driveshaft and associated parts.

    Maintenance is very easy.  A fluid change every so often is about all it requires.  No spindle bearings to wear out, no dial to regrease, and no seals to leak.  (actually the axle seals can leak, but it isn't too common.  The part that sucks is that the passenger side seal is a bugger to replace as the seal must be pressed from inside the disconnect housing.)

    This is my third vehicle with the disconnect system and I've never really had any major problems with it.  Sure, I've had seals leak, and the switch jam, and other annoying things, but when I need 4WD, it has always been there.

    I've also had vehicles with manual and auto hubs, and this is still an easier and more reliable system.  It is only when you HAVE to get the system engaged while stopped that it can be difficult.  For me, I just engage the 4WD earlier.  Besides, it goes with the tread Lightly ideals.

    ---------------Just another message from the RamHack

     

    Symptom:  Difficult shifting from 4HI to 4LOW or from 4LOW to 4HI  - usually affects Rams with the automatic transmission.

    This is a common problem with the automatic transmission. Unlike a manual with the clutch depressed, the auto is trying to spin the output shaft unless it is in park (many transmissions still "windmill" the gears even in neutral).

    When the vehicle is stopped to shift into (or out of) lo range, the transfer case goes through the neutral position while the automatic transmission tries to spin the gear cluster. This causes the grinding and difficult shifting. Some people try (with mixed results) to shift while rolling at very low speed so that everything is turning. It helps to perform the shift as quickly as possible so the gears don't have time to start moving independently (I didn't say it was easy!).From Mike Di Giovanni <mdigiova@direct.ca>

    What I have found that works pretty good is, put it in neutral and "WAIT 20-30 SECONDS" for the tranny and transfer case internals to come to the same speed, then pull or push the shifter lever aggressively. (depending if you want to apply 4lo or disengage 4lo.) Mike Di Giovanni    Port Coquitlam, B.C.   Canadahttp://mypage.direct.ca/m/mdigiova

    Diagnosing 4X4 Engage Problems

    If you like to four-wheel, brush on the trails can rip the vacuum lines from the axle CAD. Carefully check the lines between the frame and the CAD diaphragm, for damage or oil contamination. Numerous people have ripped the lines loose and one person has found that transmission fluid dripping onto the vacuum lines caused them to swell and leak. If there is no obvious damage, proceed with the diagnosis below:

    > I have a 97 RAM 1500 Club Cab Sport 4 X4 and I am having> a problem with the 4 x 4 High and Low engage light.. it just> will not come on when I put the truck into 4 wheel drive......> ANY SUGGESTIONS ???

    If this truck was mine I would:

    Shift into 4WD and move truck a couple of feet If light is still off, park truck, block the wheels, set the park  brake, jack right front wheel, and try to hand spin the wheel If wheel doesn't turn, 4x4 is functioning properly but there is a wiring problem: use an ohmmeter to check the 4x4 switch, wiring, fuse, and bulb. If wheel turns freely, the front axle or transfer case is not engaged: continue... Attempt to hand spin the front driveshaft If the driveshaft WILL spin, the transfer case is not engaged Check the transfer case shift linkage, problem is in linkage (or in the tran$fer ca$e internal$ <-- yes this means $$,  ouch!) If the driveshaft will NOT spin, the transfer case is engaged properly: continue... USE CAUTION!      With transmission in neutral or park, start engine, measure vacuum on the two vac lines at front axle shift motor. One line should have approx 20" vacuum, other line should have none. If NO vacuum measured, look for vacuum leak or bad vacuum switch. If both lines have vacuum, look for a bad vacuum switch or ruptured CAD actuator diaphragm. If one line has 20" +/- vacuum: Move transfer case lever to 2WD, measure vacuum again. Lines should have swapped vacuum signals. If No: vacuum switch bad or 4WD shift linkage needs adjusting If Yes: Vacuum motor bad or stuck, or shift fork stuck: continue Remove vacuum shift motor from the axle, attach vac lines to shift motor, engage/disengage 4WD. Does shift motor plunger move at least 1/2"? No: shift motor bad Yes: Check axle shift fork and vacuum motor for binding

    Good luck.   Dave

    Checking For Limited Differential Operation

    > How can I find out whether my RAM has a limited-slip differential or  not?

    The only sure way to tell if a LS differential is installed AND working is to:

    - block the wheels- put the transmission in neutral- release the parking brake- jack one rear wheel until the tire clears the ground- try to turn the tire by hand.

    * If it turns freely, the differential is open  (build codes, stickers, axle tags, etc can be wrong) or the LS clutches are worn out.

    *  If it requires at least 50 ft-lb to turn the tire, there is a traction aiding diff of some kind installed (or a bad bearing somewhere).

    When you disengage, it all works in reverse.  You don't have to stop, back-up, or anything else.

    Sometimes, the 4WD light stays on, or fails to come on.  This is a great indicator.  What it means is that there is a difference in speed between the two axle ends, and the vacuum can't move the collar.  Burping the throttle, twisting the wheel side to side, or shifting the 4WD again generally releases the pressure.

    2 things.  1) It is easier to shift while moving.  Even into 4LO, a slight roll makes the shift easier.  If you are stuck, and it won't shift, turn the steering wheel side to side as you burb the throttle to get the axles to line up.  When at a stop, it is very tough to line up non-moving splines.

    Pros and Cons

    Fairly strong.  The size of the axle shaft at the disconnect is significantly stronger than a hub end could ever be.  The outer axle splines can have a much tighter tolerance and thus distributes the load better.  The weak point is the bearing carrier design instead of using discrete inner and outer bearings.  In the early Jeeps, there was close to 4" between the inner and outer bearings to support side loads.  In the Ram, there is only 1/8" between them.  This makes rim backspace selection critical, and requires much higher tolerances in the bearings themselves.  Also, with no way to service the bearings without a 20 ton press, you have no way to prevent failure without spending $300 for a new carrier.

    Since the use of 4WD requires vacuum, a leak, or destruction of the lines can render the 4WD inoperative.  However, the lines are fairly well protected, and failures are rare.  The vacuum switch is a known weak point.  The switch is a little tower on the transfer case with four lines coming from it.  The switch is activated by the transfer case when a lever inside the case presses a plunger at the base of the switch.  Then, a spring in the switch extends the plunger when the lever is retracted.  The problem is that the plunger is rounded to ease the lever's action.  This rounded part can be easily jammed inside the switch by the standard gunk in the transfer case.  When this happens, the interlock and the 4WD light will not disengage.  It is an easy fix by just un screwing the switch and cleaning it, but when it happens, you can feel the extra drag of the front driveshaft and associated parts.

    Maintenance is very easy.  A fluid change every so often is about all it requires.  No spindle bearings to wear out, no dial to regrease, and no seals to leak.  (actually the axle seals can leak, but it isn't too common.  The part that sucks is that the passenger side seal is a bugger to replace as the seal must be pressed from inside the disconnect housing.)

    This is my third vehicle with the disconnect system and I've never really had any major problems with it.  Sure, I've had seals leak, and the switch jam, and other annoying things, but when I need 4WD, it has always been there.

    I've also had vehicles with manual and auto hubs, and this is still an easier and more reliable system.  It is only when you HAVE to get the system engaged while stopped that it can be difficult.  For me, I just engage the 4WD earlier.  Besides, it goes with the tread Lightly ideals.

    ---------------Just another message from the RamHack

     

    Symptom:  Difficult shifting from 4HI to 4LOW or from 4LOW to 4HI  - usually affects Rams with the automatic transmission.

    This is a common problem with the automatic transmission. Unlike a manual with the clutch depressed, the auto is trying to spin the output shaft unless it is in park (many transmissions still "windmill" the gears even in neutral).

    When the vehicle is stopped to shift into (or out of) lo range, the transfer case goes through the neutral position while the automatic transmission tries to spin the gear cluster. This causes the grinding and difficult shifting. Some people try (with mixed results) to shift while rolling at very low speed so that everything is turning. It helps to perform the shift as quickly as possible so the gears don't have time to start moving independently (I didn't say it was easy!).From Mike Di Giovanni <mdigiova@direct.ca>

    What I have found that works pretty good is, put it in neutral and "WAIT 20-30 SECONDS" for the tranny and transfer case internals to come to the same speed, then pull or push the shifter lever aggressively. (depending if you want to apply 4lo or disengage 4lo.) Mike Di Giovanni    Port Coquitlam, B.C.   Canadahttp://mypage.direct.ca/m/mdigiova

    Diagnosing 4X4 Engage Problems

    If you like to four-wheel, brush on the trails can rip the vacuum lines from the axle CAD. Carefully check the lines between the frame and the CAD diaphragm, for damage or oil contamination. Numerous people have ripped the lines loose and one person has found that transmission fluid dripping onto the vacuum lines caused them to swell and leak. If there is no obvious damage, proceed with the diagnosis below:

    > I have a 97 RAM 1500 Club Cab Sport 4 X4 and I am having> a problem with the 4 x 4 High and Low engage light.. it just> will not come on when I put the truck into 4 wheel drive......> ANY SUGGESTIONS ???

    If this truck was mine I would:

    Shift into 4WD and move truck a couple of feet If light is still off, park truck, block the wheels, set the park  brake, jack right front wheel, and try to hand spin the wheel If wheel doesn't turn, 4x4 is functioning properly but there is a wiring problem: use an ohmmeter to check the 4x4 switch, wiring, fuse, and bulb. If wheel turns freely, the front axle or transfer case is not engaged: continue... Attempt to hand spin the front driveshaft If the driveshaft WILL spin, the transfer case is not engaged Check the transfer case shift linkage, problem is in linkage (or in the tran$fer ca$e internal$ <-- yes this means $$,  ouch!) If the driveshaft will NOT spin, the transfer case is engaged properly: continue... USE CAUTION!      With transmission in neutral or park, start engine, measure vacuum on the two vac lines at front axle shift motor. One line should have approx 20" vacuum, other line should have none. If NO vacuum measured, look for vacuum leak or bad vacuum switch. If both lines have vacuum, look for a bad vacuum switch or ruptured CAD actuator diaphragm. If one line has 20" +/- vacuum: Move transfer case lever to 2WD, measure vacuum again. Lines should have swapped vacuum signals. If No: vacuum switch bad or 4WD shift linkage needs adjusting If Yes: Vacuum motor bad or stuck, or shift fork stuck: continue Remove vacuum shift motor from the axle, attach vac lines to shift motor, engage/disengage 4WD. Does shift motor plunger move at least 1/2"? No: shift motor bad Yes: Check axle shift fork and vacuum motor for binding

    Good luck.   Dave

    Checking For Limited Differential Operation

    > How can I find out whether my RAM has a limited-slip differential or  not?

    The only sure way to tell if a LS differential is installed AND working is to:

    - block the wheels- put the transmission in neutral- release the parking brake- jack one rear wheel until the tire clears the ground- try to turn the tire by hand.

    * If it turns freely, the differential is open  (build codes, stickers, axle tags, etc can be wrong) or the LS clutches are worn out.

    *  If it requires at least 50 ft-lb to turn the tire, there is a traction aiding diff of some kind installed (or a bad bearing somewhere).

    do you have access to alldata or any thing along those lines, im looking through some old tattered TSBs that we have in binders for the 94-01 rams, im not going to get into technical jargon and what not, but it more or less states 3 types of fluids can be used, 10w30 motor oil, Mopar ATF+4, or 75w90 for those living in hot climates, or those who use the vehicle for heavy towing. theres plenty of revisions for these older trucks, on fluid types and specifications

    Exclamation4 wheel drive problems

    another forum wasnt helping with this problem cause no one commented. but i need much needed help! well to start off theres alot of snow here in south ohio. and its no fun when my 4 wheel drive wont engage. its weird how its acting. i will be on flat concrete or anywhere and ill put it in neautral. then pull in back in 4 wheel high. then put it in reverse, let it roll back by itself. and then put it in drive. no 4wd light. nothing happens. but when i do this and attempt to put it in 4 wheel low. i do the same thing and when i put it in drive it will be torqy just like its engaged. but no 4wd light. and only my back tires will spin? and i heard a way to check if its good is if you arent able to spin your front driveshaft with your hand. and im able to. but the whole tranny had a rebuild in the summer of 2011. and the rebuild costed alot of money. i got it from a good friend who only used it to haul wood. and i got it winter of 2011. and it has engaged everytime. except the last few months. i need help bad please!

    Problem probably is in the CAD system.. Gonna have to take a look at that and see if that is where your problem is.. Also these trucks are shift on the fly.. You dont need to be in neutral to go into 4hi.. When going into 4 lo is the only time you need to shift to neutral.. There is a link I will have to find and post up for the 4x4 and CAD system...

    Edit: Have a look at this link and read through..

    you live in the rust belt. the metal vacuum lines, that supply vacuum to the cad unit have probably rusted out. just get 2 sections of 48" length brake line and bend them in the same shape as the current lines.

    your 4wd should work fine afterwards!

    Dlyter provided a good link to understand the CAD system and operation.

    Redneck provided one solution if your hardline system is compromised.

    I did notice you said in 4lo that the system seems working. The 4wd light doesn't always come on immediately. Sometimes its a minute or few. Same thing when disengaging.

    I additionally check all your vacuum lines. This would include the ones up on top and backside of intake manifold to make sure no leaks or disconnects. Less likely though since you got 4lo to work...it seems. This isn't a tranny issue per se based on what you described. Focus on the CAD system and then the next thing is possibly Tcase.

    Also, there is wire harness from the CAD system that plugs in below the radiator. It is what carries the on/off 4wd light signal. Check if there and plugged in..

    thats because the cad unit isnt engaging, thus creating 2 low, a very awesome creation if you have a posi-lock to replace the vacuum vad unit.

    That leads me to say that your problem is your CAD.. the tcase is working fine but your cad is your issue.. Start digging into it.

    The posi loc is a great thing.. It is 100 times more reliable than the CAD unit.. Also gives you the ability for a 2 lo operation __________________UNDER CONSTRUCTION

    As the owner of a 2014 Ram pickup, if you wanted to thank someone for the invention of four-wheel drive, you would have to talk to Jacobus and Hendrik-Jan Spyker, who introduced the first mechanical four-wheel drive system back in 1902. Their first-of-its-kind, four-wheel-drive system paved the road for modern four-wheel-drive systems like yours. Whether your truck has the manually shifted transfer case or the electronically shifted transfer case, there is a special procedure you have to follow to engage four-wheel drive.

    Other People Are Reading Dodge Truck 4 Wheel Information How to Disengage a Stuck Four-Wheel Drive Line Setting Four-High and Automatic Four-Wheel Drive

    You can shift into four-high or auto four-wheel drive, if equipped, on the fly as long as you're traveling less than 55 mph. To engage four-high range or auto, let off the throttle and shift into four-high mode or auto mode. On manually shifted models, the "4WD" light on the instrument cluster will illuminate. On electronically shifted models, the "4WD" will flash during engagement and will turn solid when engagement is complete.

    To disengage either mode, move the shifter lever or knob back to the two-high range. The "4WD" light will turn off when the shift is complete.

    Finding Four-Low

    You must shift into four-wheel drive low range with the Ram moving at only 2 or 3 mph. Slow the truck down to 2 or 3 mph, and then shift the transmission into neutral. Next, shift the transfer case into four-low range. It is safe to put the transmission back into gear as soon as the "4Low" light illuminates in the instrument cluster.

    To shift back into two-wheel drive or into four-high, slow down to 2 or 3 mph. Shift the transmission into neutral and shift the transfer case into the desired gear. The lights will turn off when engagement of two-wheel drive is complete, or "4WD" will illuminate if you shift into four-high.

    Setting Transfer Case Neutral

    To set the transfer case into neutral, the truck must be at a complete stop and ready for flat towing. Turn the ignition key to the "On" position, and then shift the transfer case into neutral. Do not attempt to drive the vehicle with the transfer case in neutral.
