Customer Question
Transmission. Mechanic's Assistant: When...

Transmission.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your transmission fluid last checked?

Popped out of high gear and OD/off dash light came on.Had it towed to mechanic. Mechanic says electronic shift solenoid coded (gear 3 to OD). They dropped the pan and found part of a split ring in the pan. It is 1997 1500 4x4, 135,000 miles, recently flushed/filled.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '97 Dodge?

Give e your gut feeling.....repair/rebuild, or re-manufactured replacement.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I always kept fluid level up.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That should do it, thanks.

That split ring they found came off of a clutch pack. It broke and now the clutch plates and disc cannot be applied, thus causing OD high gear to not work.

The transmission will need to be removed and repaired, or a replaced with a remanufactured transmission. Sorry, but that is what will need to be done.

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.
