1999 Dodge ram plenum repair

Fixing the plenum pan on my truck... its a common problem on 2nd gen dodge rams. When the gasket blows it lets oil into the intake which gets sucked into the cylinders... most trucks mine included were just re programed to run diffrent instead of dodge fixing the plenum. After replacing my plenum pan and intake gaskets, i have more power and it hasnt used any oil or coolant in the past week.

Dodge Magnum V8 Intake Plenum Pan Gasket Replacement
PS: Sorry for the silent film. After all the work, I forgot to add music. If your Dodge Ram, Dakota, Durango, or Jeep Grand Cherokee (ZJ) with the Magnum 3.9L V6, 5.2L V8, or 5.9L V8 has been pinging during acceleration or under engine load, and using/consuming oil, then more than likely your Intake Plenum Pan Gasket has blown out and is allowing the engine's vacuum to pull oil from the valley (where the camshaft/pushrods are) into the engine, burning it and causing ping/spark knock. The plenum being one piece, instead of a separate upper and lower intake manifold, requires there to be an opening on the bottom of the plenum during casting since it's such a large piece of aluminum. The solution is to cover it with a pan, as such. The pan is made of very thin aluminum and over time it warps from heat, allowing the gasket to blow out. You can replace the gasket but since the pan is warped, it will only blow out the gasket again and since it's so much work, it's not fun to do it several times. Hughes Engines has a replacement pan that is much, much thicker and is the solution to the warping. It will not warp and the gasket will not blow out again. This is the kit that I used in the video/slide show. It was cold out when I did this a few months ago so I didn't take any video, just pictures. Sorry the video is silent. The kit for the 5.2/5.9 V8's can be found here: http://www.hughesengines.com/Index/products.php?partid=22220 and the kit for the 3.9 V6 can be found here: http://www.hughesengines.com/Index/products.php?partid=22078. By the way, I'm not endorsed or sponsered by Hughes engines, I just highly recommend the kit if you're going to put in the work to replace the gasket. If you have any other questions about the procedure or any other repairs or questions about your Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep/ Mopar product, just send me a message or leave me a comment. This applies to all '93-03 Dodge Ram, Ram Vans, Dakota, Durango, Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 3.9L V6 (239), 5.2L V8 (318), 5.9L V8 (360). As always, disconnect the battery, and be safe and careful with yourself and everything under the hood during this repair. Thanks for watching! Comment, Rate, and Subscribe!

How to tell if your plenum pan gasket is blown
This is an amateur demonstration of the Chrysler-recommended diagnostic test to see whether the Dodge Ram/Durango/Grand Cherokee plenum pan gasket has failed, as described in TSB 09-05-00. Issues of test sensitivity and specificity are raised. A common flaw seen in the Dodge Ram Magnum V8 engine (1994- approx 2003) is a leaking plenum pan gasket. The gasket is said to be prone to failure because the pan is made of steel, and the intake manifold is aluminum. With the different coefficients of expansion between these two metals, and the marked thermal change this area is subjected to, gasket failure is quite common, leading to an internal vacuum leak and oil contamination of the intake manifold. Failure of this gasket may lead to oil consumption, poor gas mileage, pinging under load, and rough idle. This is a demonstration of amateur effort, published in good faith but with no guarantees as to safety or accuracy. Auto repair is intrinsically dangerous and misadventures are to be anticipated and planned for. Do not try this at home without professional advice! Any misadventure you encounter if you should decide to try and repair your vehicle is your responsibility.

Dodge Dakota Coolant Leak Repair - Including Bypass Hose, Thermostat, Water Pump, etc.
To get to what turned out to be a Thermostat leak we had to remove the following items: The Serpentine belt, the fan, the Air Conditioning Compressor, the Alternator and the A/C and Alternator Bracket. This way you can easily access the bypass hose, the thermostat housing, and the upper heater hose (or otherwise called the heater to engine hose). This also gives you free access to the water pump if you were going to replace it. This is actually the easiest way to access the water pump as opposed to the way the service manual describes removing it (without removing the A/C and Alternator bracket). However, after doing the job we discovered a second leak on the lower heater hose (or the heater to water pump return hose). Which also needed to be corrected.





Dodge Ram Head Gasket Repair : Blue Devil
I started to get a bad leak in the head gasket.. Seen this at the auto store for 60 bucks.. went home and seen it had decent reviews. Thought Id put my own video up to show that I had success with this stuff.. Im a skeptic of repairs in a bottle but 60 is better then 500.





1999 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9L idles rough.
My truck started to idle rough about a year and a half ago. There are times where I would be at a stop light and it would idle rough and hiss. Sometimes it would die on me. I thought it was a broken vacuum line or maybe the thermostat (it doesn't overheat) but it could be the EGR valve or something else. I am not a mechanic but I can replace parts on the engine if needed. If anyone can help please post reply or video response. Thanks.

98 RAM 1500 Intake Plenum Repair 5.9
This is an overview not step by step. I used the kit from Huges Engines and was pleased with the new hardware included. Look them up for prices and applications. The intake manifold gaskets, the ones that seal to the heads, were not worth using. I bought Victor Renz gaskets. And wouldnt you know it, the thermostat they included was no good. A replacement was cheap enough, just aggravating to replace it twice. Once everythin was buttoned up. No more burning oil, best of all, no more pinging under acceleration. I went back to 87 octane gas and the sumnbitch payed for itself already.





98 Dodge Ram tuneup
I demonstrate replacement of ignition wires, distributor cap and rotor in a 1998 5.9L Dodge Ram 4X4. Inspection of plugs and replacement of the air filter is shown, though PCV valve inspection and other work was done off camera. This is a demonstration of amateur effort, published for entertainment purposes only. This is not an instructional video, and the information contained here is not guaranteed. Never use amateur videos (or any other single source of information) in isolation to teach yourself auto mechanics. Auto repair involves personal and financial risk, so do not embark on repairing vehicles without clear understanding of those risks.
