Question about 2001 Dodge Ram Maxi
Traveling from Seattle to Salem OR, engine dropped to idle, would not accelerate, engine light came on. Turned off motor for 5 min. restarted and seemed all right after that except check engine light stayed on. Also at some point during the tripe I lost front end traction, the transfer case is locked in but front drive assembly does not respond, was lucky to get home in this snowy conditions. 2001 dodge cummins 6 spd manual 4x4 3500 dually. Thanks, Tom Woodenknee@comcast.net 5035841463

you might try and change the pcv valve, my car hand a similar problem in the summer and i never changed it. the pressure blew my cam seal and i was leaking oil like crazy. i dont know if it will fix it but they are cheap. i would give it a try.

Yes it's a bad seal and most likely the side bearing to the trans axle is bad too. Once the bearing has play, it vibrates and causes the oil to leak though the seal. Note: if one side went bad the other side is soon to follow since they have the same amount of miles on them. Might as well change both side. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep an eye on the transmission fluid level, don't want to burn out the transmission.

Research the trouble codes.....my '01 had a similar problem, turned out to be the CPS (Cam Position Sensor).
Easy fix.....10mm nut and unplug/plug in and reset codes and your done.
