Question about 2001 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

I just had a rebuilt tranmission put in my 2001 durango 2 months ago. But ever since then it has been in the shop every other week because when I had the cruise control on it felt like it was slipping when I was going done the highway at any speed. Now for the last 2 times that I brought it back in. It feels like it is slipping between 65 and 70. It will go up to 3 on the rpms and then drop back to 2. Only when it is running for at least 45 minutes or so. My machanic took it for a ride 30 minutes each way and felt it also but not as much as I did. He informed me that it is not the engine or the transmission. He doesnt know what the problem is and just to keep driving it..And I also purchased the truck Dec 27th of 08. Can someone point me in the right direction of what this problem could be if they are saying its not the transmission?

Sounds Like you lost the front pump in the trans. Onley way to confirm is by checking chking the pressures at the trans. If you have the gauges you can probably do this yourself although a trans shop is recommended.

Yes that could be. and the transmission control module is re learing the driving condition. I would give it a 2 week break in period. I would take back to the shop if the condition does not clear up in two weeks. They may have to re adjust the bands inside. This should be free of charge considering the shop warranty the work parts and labor. I would not let the shop tell you this is a different condition from being rebuilt. Checking the bands and adjusting the tranmission is part of a rebuilding processes.

Good Luck

2001 Dodge Durango--Transmission

Only way rpms will flair is if trans has low pressure at any time (and allowing internal clutches to slip) or, if the lock up converter is not remaining engaged). This is not an engine problem. Someone needs to drive this with a scanner attached and monitor systems.Other than an internal problem, could be a shift control module, speed sensor or even a problem with something as seemingly unrelated as a brake light switch.
To protect your rights under any guarantee, keep good records on what is done to correct your problem. In working on your car, your problem becomes the shops problem 'till it's corrected!!!
good luck
