Question about 2002 Dodge Dakota Club Cab

Open Question

307000 miles and a high pitched noise comes from differential ~ right side

I have the drive train fluids changed every 100K miles. The transmission gets a filter replacement, flush, and fluid change. The differential gets a fluid change. At approximately 240,000 miles the differential front seal was changed, picked up a tie down strap that wrapped around the drive shaft, and fluid was changed at 200K and 300K. I have the tires rotated and balanced every 8K at discount tire. I have a reputable shop perform the maintenance. This is not the only maintenance performed every 100K.

SOURCE: Front End Problems

first i would check the tires , are they cupped or chopped on the tread? run your hand over the tread and see if it feels rough and uneven. take the truck to a auto repair shop and have them jack both front and rear axles off the ground, put the truck in 2 wheel drive and run the speedometer to the speed you usually hear the roaring noise, if you don't hear the noise , put the truck in 4 wheel drive, turn off the traction assist if it has one and run it to the speed you would hear the noise. if you hear the roaring noise with tires off the ground, the problem is in the drivetrain, (engine, transmission, transfer case, u-joints, differentials or the front left or right cv halfshafts or u-joints). the older models (97 98) had the front two driveshafts from the differential turning all the time, they engaged in 4 wheel drive from the transfer case and a solenoid on the front differential. depending on the miles you have on this truck, the most likely areas i would look at would be the tires, u-joints/cv joints, and front and rear wheel bearings. thanks and good luck.

let your wife drive or slow down. Seriously, sounds like you have covered just about everything. Try increasing or decreasing your tire pressures a little just to see if it has any effect.

Problems with hummers


There is virtually no difference between the Hummer H3 drive train and comparable GMC and Chevrolet drive trains. Although you overspent on a piece of pseudo-military jewelry, the drive train is reasonably reliable and easy to service, and parts interchange with GM truck parts.
My sole recommendation would be to use 15W-40 diesel-grade oil instead of the recommended oil and, if you haven't already done it in the last 20,000 miles, change all fluids (crankcase oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, differential fluid, power steering fluid, engine coolant).

When should you change the transmission fluid and filter in a 2005 Chevrolet trailblazer


The fluid should be changed at the 100K mark. The front and rear differential fluids should also be changed at that mileage. The transfer case fluid needs to be changed every 50K miles and only use GM Autotrak II gear oil.

Humming noise from front left side


I hate to say it, but it sounds like something in the differential - transmission. The part about the noise and coasting fits a differential bearing noise. Making turns could put extra load on the bearings and gears in the transmission.

Service 100 thousands miles


The 04 was pretty straight forward.

Change the oil and filter when the display tells you to. (Don't forget to reset Oil Life system!)
when the display tells you to change engine oil... Do the following as well:
~Lube Chassis Components
~Check Tires for Air and Damage
~Inspect Break System
~Check Engine Fluids and Washer System
~Check Power Steering System
~Check Wiper Blades
~Check Restraint System
~Lube Body Components (See manual)
~Replace Cabin Air Filter (Located in firewall on passenger side.)


Every 25K miles do the following:
~ Inspect Fuel System, Exhaust System, Accessory Drive Belts for damage or wear.
~ Replace Air Cleaner

Ever 50K Miles
~ If used for Towing - Replace Transfer Case Fluid :: If not change fluid ever 75Kk miles.

Every 100k Miles
~ Change Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter
~ Change Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter again at 150k if heavy service
~ Replace Spark Plugs

Every 150k miles
~ Change Engine Coolant (Or every 5 years which ever comes first!)
~ Replace Engine Accessory Drive Belt

optional y are supposed to change the transfer case fluid every 50k if towing

Dodge dakota 2005 automatic transmission, when starting from a stop or low speed sounds as if it is low on fluid rpms high started doing this on tollway when pulling out from the toll both ????seems to...


Manually shift thru all gears up & down the scale. Try adding Motorcraft Additive Friction Modifier, available from Ford parts dept. This REALLY STINKS!!! Don't get any on you. Pour into trans fluid. Drive a few miles shifting manually thruthe gears, then do a normal start stop drive several times. This will luburcate trans, normally used for differential but has worked in automatic transmissions of all makes for years. Otherwise mechanical problem for transmission repair facility.

2000 wrangler 4.o manual-made offer on used one on start and stop -sloppy in drive train -clunk--should I be concerned? Shifts fine-runs well 145000 miles When lever in 2 wheel high is it in 4 wheel...


2 wheel high is rear wheel drive only. next one back is 4 wheel high.
Only position i wouldn't worry about is 4 low ...they usually get weird because it's used very rarely (NEARLY NEVER). There is no dipstick on a stick transmission you need to remove a plug on the drivers side of the unit to check that. The clunk and looseness is of concern as it could be a bad universal joint on any one of the driveshafts or axle shafts, or it could indicate a problem in either of the differentials. Joints aren't terrible
to repair but a differential is a lot of work and depending on what you are paying, it could be a deal breaker.
