Is the 3.7L engine good in the Dodge 1500
Looking at buying a Dodge 1500 SXT with the 3.7L V-6.
Is this a good engine? Are there any major faults with this truck?
other than the fact that its severly underpowered and you would probly get the same or better fuel milage with a v8 its not a bad engine as far as ive heared
Good motor and truck. Going to the grocery store thats about it
I just bought a 2008 Ram with a 3.7 and a 6 speed. I only need it for light duty. I drove it around town for prolly 40 miles and then took it on the road. Mileage was 22 mpg. When I get my lightweight boat, i expect to be in fourth or even third gear up hills. I'm very satisfied so far.
Every one I have talk with tells me that the 3.7 and the 4.7 was junk and I believe them cause my friend bought on a it was no good it had no power
the problem with 3.7 and 4.7 is, they have single valve springs, and are prone to dropping seats, rockers arms falling off, and broken springs. dual valve springs are a must in any American car driven in USA. our highway speeds, roadways, and traffic situation demands it.
Don't get the 3.7 stick with a 4.7 or the Hemi they both have enough power and tow capacity the 3.7 can only tell about 3,000 pounds if that sluggish no power whatsoever you do better Towing something with a Jeep Liberty I mean it is the same engine
My 3.7 2003 ram 1500 has 232000 on it and still runs great...oil consumption is becoming an issue ...Never a single engine problem ever... mine is a single cab with a short bed..(lighter than a 4 door/long bed) ,factory towing package...power is excellent (and I am a X drag racer)...fuel mileage has always sucked (maybe the tow package get's a lower gear?)..First Dodge I have ever owned and I would buy it again....had 148000 on it when I bought it....I do change my oil every 3000 miles without fail....
I absolutely love my 2007 Dodge Ram 1500. I bought it with 50,000 miles on it and I'm just about ready to turn 200,000 miles. Not one issue ever! And I hold my horses everywhere in a 2 horse bumper pull. I do have the factory tow package and that's all I've Ever Needed great gas mileage!
280k and have beat the absolute crap out of this truck. Owned since new and has never had an easy day, it pulls my 16ft form trailer, and trailer with concrete equipment more than it’s been unhook. So far I’ve replaced the battery. Ol gal starting to burn oil pretty good now, hate to see her go.
