Customer Question
While driving the 1999...

While driving the 1999 Dakota, I started losing drive gears forward but still had reverse. Got it home(barely) and looking for any similar problems.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Dodge. The Dodge Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

All is fine but the shifting is nonexistent and the truck is parked until we can get it fixed. I have no codes come up on OBDII either.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Most definitely!!!!!

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Dodge Mechanic should be aware of about your Dodge?

It is a 3.9 liter 4x2 Sport package extended cab.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
