Dodge is an American brand of automobiles and a division of Stellantis. They’re based in Auburn Hills, Michigan. They’re the maker and seller of the Dodge Ram pick-up truck.
People that own a Dodge Ram, like the 2018 RAM 1500, 2010 RAM 1500, 2012 RAM 1500, and 2011 RAM 2500 are hearing a clicking sound from the passenger side of the engine bay. This problem indicates that the exhaust header bolts have snapped and could be an intermittent exhaust leak from the header. The warranty for a Dodge Ram consists of a 3 yr/36,000 mile basic limited warranty and a 5 yr/60,000 mile powertrain limited warranty. This problem isn’t always covered under the powertrain warranty. Also, for some this problem can occur inside and outside of warranty.
In order to fix the problem, vehicle owners will have to go to the dealership and get a new manifold gasket, head shield probably, and all the various nuts and bolts to replace them. A new manifold gasket can cost anywhere from $730-$799. Then a potential new heat shield can range in price from below $100 to over $500. There was a similar class action lawsuit against Ford. The lawsuit states that Ford explorer allegedly suffers from an exhaust leak problem. The defect allows dangerous gasses like carbon monoxide to enter and build up inside the vehicle. This is a similar class action lawsuit because both cases involve a problem with a vehicle’s exhaust.
