Customer Question
Hello, same problem as...

Hello, same problem as the gentleman shifting from 4ko to 2wd.. but I tried rolling as the manual states and it won’t shift to 2wd... I’m at my farm 1:30 minutes away from home....

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

4lo***

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

2004 2500 Cummins 5.9

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

The truck has a transmission that’s about a year old.. I’m not trying to fix it...

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

It’s never done that...

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.
