But when I shift into 3rd gear there is a loud knock or bang. Not sure if it's the transmission or the transfer case. Please help if you know what the problem.
I hope it's a easy fix. It shifts in all 5 gears but when I am driving and try to shift into 3rd gear it slams hard.
It sat for 2 months till I finally got it done. Put new batteries in it. Used Interstate batteries. Can't believe it would loose its prime.
also seems to be slipping … it just doesn't have any pep to it at take off….
Has new plugs, wires, cap, rotor, catalytic converter. Has good fuel press. So far no DTCs are listed. Z eng. code
no power injection pump or Fuel Pump
One of our friends said it could be a loose bolt and u could tighten it and put a little weld on it and it would straighten it out. Afraid to try without some advice. I know it is geared really low to pull heavy lds. We don't do that but that is what it was built for. I don't know the engine my husband is in the garage.

After sitting for a few days the truck won't shift out of second gear, I was informed by Johnny Mopar that it was possible a defective power train control module. Can it be adjusted enough to get it to a dealer?
what kind of oil do i use
after sitting for a few days, the tachometer does not work , it wont shift out of second,and the battery does not charge. I have checked all the fuses
I have fuel spurting out when the engine is running. The pump was replaced last year as well as the fuel lines. Could be coming from the fuel filter separator? I have recently moved and the roads to the house are pretty bad with lots of pot holes....could something rattle loose? Just noticed it this morning. Would like to know if its something I can trouble shoot and avoid having it towed 12 miles into town for repair?
I have a rattle in the left front wheel. It sounds like something is rattling around inside the hub. I took the tire off and when I turn the wheel it sounds like there is something loose inside rolling around. When you speed up to about 15 mph you don't hear it anymore. My question is can this wait a week or two till I can get it looked at or this an accident waiting to happen?
The trans will not shift from 1st to 2nd unless your at 2000rpm and let up on the pedal..then it shifts great..
ABS and BRAKE LIGHT STAYS ON. Where is the relay and or sensor? I read somewhere it was over the pumkin but I do not see it.
how much to change all 6 injectors and govenor springs just labor on a 96 dodge 3500 diesel
It cranks and sometimes tries to start. Sometimes really rough then dies. It has been sitting for about a month and I started it a couple days ago and let it idle. Did the same yesterday. Today, it won't start. Lift pump? water in fuel? fuel pump problem? Where is the place to hand operate the fuel lift pump? Do I have to get under the truck? I didn't think so. I think it is on the driver side of the engine, but sure is hard to find.
