Customer Question
I have a 2004 catapillar...
I have a 2004 catapillar D3G LT dozer with 3,800 hours . The transmision is not working properly - Saturday I was doing some grading work (dirt) for about 3 hours and then it just started slowing down , I stopped and put it in reverse worked fine for about 40 feet & then started slowing down to where it was hardly moving so I stopped & moved to forward position & about 30 -40 feet slowed down to where is was barely moving - so I stopped. Fluid level bubble on back of dozer looks fine
