Customer Question
Cannot shift into reverse...

Cannot shift into reverse, 2nd, fourth or 6th gear. First, third and fifth work although shift lever seems loose when going into gear. This happened at a stop sign with no noise or indication of anything wrong.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Dodge. The Dodge Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

If I can.

It sounds like you have a broken shifter cable. When you attempt to put it into gear in the gears that will not engage, what does happen?
Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
You can not move shifter lever rearward to R,2,4 or 6th gear position. Lever can be moved right and left and forward to engage 1st, 3rd and 5th. Does this transmission use forks or cable to engage gears?
Dodge Mechanic: Joshua Haynes,
 replied 2 years ago
I apologize, I misspoke about the cable...it sounds like you have a broken shifter mechanism. It does use forks to shift. The shifter sits directly on top of the transmission. Are you able to pull the boot off and access the four bolts holding the shifter on top of the transmission?

What Customers are Saying:

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.
