by shovelhead on Aug 27, 2008 Vehicle: 1994 Dodge Ram Van
Bought this van with 160,000 have replaced the water pump and a rear wheel bearing (that I should have replaced 30,000 miles earlier) This baby never failed me or stranded me. The mileage is currently 207,000 and counting. The trans was rebuilt at 100,000 but the motor is original and purrs like a kitten. This is the most reliable vehicle I have ever had. Rust is an issue as the leaf spring has torn through the bed. If you are thinking of buying a used ram van with a 3.9 but are hesitant because of high mileage don't sweat it if it rides good on the test chances are good if you drive sane and maintain it, it will last over 300,0000. I won't hesitate to take this puppy across country. Rock on 3.9

Bought this vehicle new in 1994. Have
put 220,000 miles on it and it still
runs great. No problems ever with a/c
or engine. Transmission was rebuilt at
175,000 miles. Burns oil now. Have
changed hoses, belts, water pump,
transmission lines, batteries and lots
of tires. Acceleration is slow,
especially with a/c on. Molly is a
great vehicle for trips. She has
become a member of the
family, complete with a name! My
teenagers hate her because she "isn't
cool", but I love Molly! Upholstery
and carpet are in exceptional condition
considering her years.
1995 Dodge Ram Van 3500, 5.2L motor. I would post on the van area but it is pretty much empty and the drivetrain should be the same. In hindsight, the problem has been noticeable for over a year but...
