Question about 1994 Dodge Shadow
Speedometer does not work. Will drive but when it gets over 3000 rpms it dies. Doesn't act like it wants to shift. Replaced transmission fluid but cannot find the filter for it. Air filter is clean. Oil filter is clean with fresh oil. Shut the car off and there is a ticking sound that sounds like its coming from under the engine. Also coolant reserve tank is OVERfull but there is nothing in the radiator and nothing in the hoses. What could be going on?

I'm not possitive but there is usually a vent tube on top of the transmission, may be possible that dirt or something is clogging it up. That would cause the tranny to build up pressure. But to blow the seal on a new radiator, I wouldn't imagine that. My opinion would be that the new radiator wasn't put together correctly. But just in case the vent tube did cause it to let go, check the vent. I hope that you find the problem. Best wishes.

Turns out it was the water pump. The plastic impeller on the inside had broken in half- split almost right down the middle. there was just enough of the impeller remaining to attach to the shaft and pump water. Apparently, it was pumping enough to keep the temp under control. So, I never noticed it overheating. The piece that had broken off had gotten lodged in a recessed area inside the pump housing. The ticking noise was being generated as the intact half of the impeller rotated and hit the broken off half.
I narrowed down the problem by removing the belt and cranking the engine temporarily. With the belt off and the pump not turning, the sound was gone. I could spin the pump pulley by hand and faintly hear the noise.
A new pump cost me $35 and took about two and a half hours to replace.

200 is a bit high unless it is a mechanic shop, usually a fuel filter will run about 25-50 dollars and that is on the high side, it is a fairly easy thing to change most of the time.
in any case that will likely correct your problem of not then you will have to drop fuel tank and clean fuel pump and tank with mineral spirits

Well, first do the service. Pull the pan down and look for metal shavings. If there is metal shavings your in for a transmission. If not, you may have a problem with one of the transmissions shift solenoids located near the valve body.
P.S. The Duramax has the Allison 1000 transmission not the dodge cummins and they are one of the best trannys on the market.
