durango: have a 00 Durango with the 5.9. the tranny would not

This answer was rated:

have a 00 Durango with the 5.9. the tranny would not pull when I bought it. the fluid looked like gear oil. I changed the fluid and filter and it started pulling good. after about 25 miles it quit pulling again. the filter and pan were covered with what looked like tar. I changed the fluid and filter again but it will not move backwards. tranny will not allow to move backwards even with engine off. I would like to experiment with it. what do you think has locked it up from rolling backwards. also what is the difference between a 99 and 00 . both areXXXXXwith the 5.9.

Hi,My name is Tim,

I will do my best to assist you

sorry,but there is no good nes here..your a518 transmission is done..the reason it locks in reverse is because it is sending fluid to places it isnt suppose to be,,also,,from the way you explain..the frictions are worn out as well..the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced..

the 99 and oo are the same

thanks
