Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
I HEAR METAL ON METAL NOISE FROM THE REAR OF MY TRUCK WHEN I DRIVE IT. I RAISED THE REAR END AND THE WHEELS TURNED FREELY. I WAS TOLD THE REAR AXLE IS PROBABLY ON ITS WAY OUT. ALSO, I HAVE TO LET UP ON THE GAS FOR THE TRANNY TO SHIFT INTO THIRD GEAR. ANY IDEAS?
I had the same problem with shifting in too gears I changed the trans filter and oil with off brand from the parts store
then went to dodge dearl got the right one and right oil it works fine now . but now i have the sound coming from the rear end too I thinking its coming from the inner bearing ..

Did you check your transaxle fluid level? drain/replace transaxle fluid dont forget the friction modifier additive. it is required for proper function of your limited slip. signs of a failing differential are metal shavings in the bottom of the case, worn ring/pinion grooves. the other issue with your shift problem could be a failing shift solenoid, however, a vacuum leak will cause crappy shifts because your trans relies on good vacuum to shift.
