Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, Eddie here and I will do my best to help. So if you have the engine in Park, it revs up fine and sounds normal? Also, what year is your dodge? and model? thank you.
Alright, and when you put it in R or D, it binds up and it's like you've got the E brake fully applied? doesn't Rev up past 2200 rpm or so? or does it rev up about like it does in P? Did you check the fluid level and is it full ?
Alright, You don't get any engagement even in Low 1 or Reverse correct?
Alright, Your sure the driveshaft is still in one piece, and the u joints aren't broken correct? You've tried shifting into 4wd, 4 Low, the linkage on the transfer case is good and it moves with the shifter correct?
Yes, I just want to make sure the linkage at the transfer case has full range of motion. So was it going down the road and then quit on you, or did you park it and try to get in and leave and it had this problem, did it ever get worse or did it happen all at once?
Alright, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but It's either in the transfer case, or the tranny, and either way, you've at least got to pull the transfer case off to fix it in my opinion (if the linkage has full range of motion), and once you pull the transfer case off, you can then turn the input shaft, and feel if it feels like gravel in there, or watch the out put shaft where the driveshaft spline to it, and see if the output shaft turns with the input shaft like it should. If all feels good there, and the transfer case fluid looks good, then it's likely in the tranny itself, you either stripped a planetary gear set or broke a weld on a sun shell in my opinion. If you pull that tranny pan and it looks like shrapnel in there, it'll have to be rebuilt, hopefully it's just in the transfer case, but either way you've got to pull the transfer case to get to the tranny anyway. Once you feel of the transfer case input shafts and output shafts by hand, you'll know whether it's that or the tranny. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you.
oh sweet, wonder how that connector cam off, if it looks damaged or anything maybe zip tie it back on. Thank you. Let me know if you have any further questions.
Absolutely, thank you.
