1995 Dodge Ram Question Sign In

Good evening, gentleman.


I've a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 Pickup. Once I reach to around 70mph, I truck tends to shake. Anything under that, it runs very smoothly. It is not just the engine, but the whole thing. Someone mentioned to me that it was being the tread on my tires were wearing out. That is would end, once they were replaced. I've also heard the fuel filter needs to be replaced. But was told by a mechanic since the filter is attached to the fuel pump, than the whole pump needs to be changed out.

I was wondering if I could get a second opinion on this.



Thank you to all who respond to this topic.

Guess: Large tires and wheels need be tended to often! Make a habit of noting rotation of tires and with trucks and especially if a 4X4 like every 3,000 miles. Simple front to back and then crosed the next time. If tires or wheels are messed up the only answer I know of is new stuff. BTW - 70 MPH for a truck is enough!

The fuel filters in those are not supposed to ever require service.

The key word here is SUPPOSED . Wish I had a $100.00 for every one of those lifetime filters I changed . Come to think of it I do.Tongue

I have never seen that filter cause any kind of driveability problems and Chrysler doesn't recommend changing them for maintenance reasons.

I guess its just luck of the draw . To be honest ,the majority of the tme it wasnt the filters fault . Ive had 3or4 with unkown substance in tank, one of which was sugar , guess he made someone mad. A couple with pump failure , cutomers wanted everything in tank changed . And there was a few that were resticted , as i recall one guy drove on dirt roads with rag in tank . yea he had a check eng lite but did not care until power suffered. So in a nutshell I suppose your statement is correct.Wink

Thanks alot, gents.


I suppose I can get the tires changed and rotated/aligned and see how that goes. Since my filter is SUPPOSED never require service.


Appreciate the advice.
