alt is ok also tried to get codes but scanner dos not acknowledge vehicle

2 WEEK AGO WE PLAYED GOLF IN HOT SPRINGS ARK. WE FINISHED PLAYING AND STARTED THE TRUCK AND TURNED ON THE AC. WE BACKED UP AND PULLED FORWARD ABOUT 30 YARDS AND THE AC WASN'T COOLING BUT WAS BLOWING. ALL OF A SUDDEN SMOKE BELLOWED UP THROUGH THE VENTS AT THE WINDSHIELD ON THE DRIVER SIDE. IT WAS WHITE-GRAY. I CUT OF THE ENGINE POPED THE HOOD AND WHEN WE LIFTED THE HOOD THE SMOKE WAS GONE SO WE COULDN'T TELL WHERE IT CAME FROM. PEOPLE THAT SAW IT THOUGHT IT WAS ON FIRE. AFTER LOOKING AROUND UNDER THE HOOD WE GOT BACK IN AND STARTED IT. IT STARTED RIGHT UP THE AC STARTED COOLING AND THERE WERE NO MORE PROBLEMS. ON THE WAY HOME, WE HAD DRIVEN ABOUT 250 MILES AND WE COULD SMELL SOMETHING LIKE ELECTRIC SHORT OR RUBBER LIKE IT DID THE FIRST TIME, IT WAS JUST A FUNNY SMELL.NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS CAME ON AND THE AC WAS WORKING. THE SMELL LASTED ABOUT 2 OR 3 MIN. I BOUGHT THIS TRUCK NEW AND HAVE MAINTAINED IT VERY WELL. IT'S A 2006 DODGE DIESEL 5.9 MEGA CAB WITH 123000 MILES.

Lost all gears except 1st and rev. Attempts to move when in drive but will only move if gear lever is shifted to 1 position. Wondering what the issue could be?

Catalytic converter was stolen

Stolen, need a new one

power steering fluid leaks out of screw in lines with o rings replaced o rings same problem .

I had my 2007 Dodge diesel truck in the shop, the transmission was rebuilt at a cost of 6500.
one week later I get a check enginee light with the code P1740.
I return the truck to the shop and the tell me I need to replace the front transmission pump and torque convertor, I will have to pay for the pump to be replaced.

change oils in front axle rear axle 6 speed transmission and transfer case

Check engine light is on giving a P0222 code, replaced throttle position sensor, lift pump, and fuel filter, light is still on and giving a P0222. What else could the problem be with this code? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

My wipers stopped working. Then about 2 weeks later worked for about a week or so then as I was driving (in the rain) they slowed way down went a few more swipes then died again. could turn switch back on/off again. it would go a little bit and now dead. Relaced the wiper switch and that did nothing. Help - it's rainy this week!!

Is it cheaper to have a mechanic order one and install it, or to have it rebuilt from scratch? On my van, a mechanic has told me that the cost of one that he has ordered--with labor--will cost me a total of 3,350.00 to install. Does that sound reasonable? Thanks in advance--

Early one morning I was driving and suddenly my tail lights and dash lights went out instantly. I have checked every fuse, I have replaced headlight/dimmer switch. The bulbs are fine. I think its the wiring but does anyone have any idea whats going on?

this is a recent development. It did not happen when I first got the truck. There was a burnt out fuse for the trailer, that was replaced and an electronic brake was installed. Now the parking lights stay on even when the light switch and the ignition are off

light is also out on passenger vanity mirror.

i just replaced the tps iat map and engine coolant sensors on it and did a complete tune up including oil oil filter plugs plug wires air filter thermostat and belt my truck starts and runs great until it warms up then it coughs and spudders and wants to to die and wont idle i have put the code reader tool on it and it comes back with no codes

is there anything else I should have them look at why they are doing this I have 280000 miles on truck 1 owner

Automatic transmission

MY 02 dodge has over 225,000 miles on it it's by far the best truck I've ever owned the only complaint I really have is the oil vent tube. I have extended it down farther
so its easer to clean the bottle but it still makes a mess under my truck. Do any of you have any ideas?

When starting my vehicle and placing it into gear, it does not shift smoothly into either fwd or rev. It delays for 10+ seconds and then shifts hard into gear. What could cause this?

I'm purchasing this diesel , six speed and may have to replace clutch.

my 1998 24 valve Dodge 2500 starts perfectly but at times like when I go to town and make a few stops,,, it will act like its not going to start at times ,, it will just turn over like it is not getting fuel,,, I will then turn key back to off and try again and it starts then,, I have replaced the lift pump and fuel filter.. could it be something electrical ?? which it acts like .thank you

would this be transmission solinoid or other? fluid hoses and linkage all are good

It jumps in and out usually between 40 and 60 miles an hour

Is it a sensor or is the transmission shot

I have a 99 Dodge Ram 2500 with a Cummins Diesel, 207K. It just started giving me issues with the transmission. From starting the truck, and going on my way the engine doesn't shift out of first until either it gets over 2000 rpms or not at all. But once it makes that shift out, then the entire time it's fine. No other issues. Until I turn off the truck and start it up again. My mechanic isn't available at this time and of course it had to happen on a Friday afternoon. Anyone have an idea of what the issue is and what it will take to fix?
