Hello All I am the new owner of a Ram Van 1500. It is a 2000 model with the 5.9 and 46RE transmission. Has 91,000 miles on it. Have most of the maintenance receipts from the previous owner, and am looking over them. Is there anything special to look out for on this model year of the van as far as maintenance goes? I am planning to do the shock absorbers soon, since that is one of the things that appears to not have been done based on the receipts, and maybe have the back brakes checked. It looks like the van has had regular oil changes, transmission fluid changed at least twice, at 20,000 and again at about 70,000. Last major expense was changing the sparkplugs and a leaks on the timing cover and a serpentine belt. The work order said the tranmission had to be pulled to change the sparkplugs. Has anybody ever heard of that? The dealer charged her $1300 labor, this was at 84,000 miles. Anyway I am glad that I am a member of Allpar, since this is the best forum of knowledge that I have found. Thanks!
