The transmission is in limp in mode. The check engine light is on because the transmission controller told the engine controller to turn it on. You will have to get the fault codes checked to diagnose the problem. Expect to find a P0700 code in the engine controller. Thats the code for a transmission fault in the trans controller. It could be as simple as an input speed sensor or as complexed as an internal failure. Either way have the transmission fault codes checked for a proper diagnosis.

1991 dodge Dakota v8 automatic 4 wheel drive with over drive when taking off in drive I can hear the transmission shift twice. But IT won't shift up into high gear


Bad shift solenoid. Easy t replace but messy, You have to drop the transmission pan. There are 2 shift solenoids. The 2 that look the same. I would replace both of them. Pull them out slowly, there are pistons and springs behind them. You don't want to loose them.

2002 dodge Dakota stuck I'n 4 wheel drive so u


The 4x4 is controlled by vacuum. There is a vacuum switch on the top of your transfer case that control the vacuum to the front axle shift motor. The shift motor has 2 ports, when vacuum is applied to one side the shift motor moves the fork one way and when vacuum is applied to the other side, the fork moves the other way.

The first thing I would do is verify the hoses at the transmission cross member are hooked up. Then I would remove the 4 bolts from the shift motor and remove the motor and start the engine and shift in and out of 4x4 waiting 10 seconds before each shift and see if the fork moves.

If it doesn't you will need to check the vacuum connector on top of the transfer case and make sure it is fully attached, if it is, you will need to remove the vacuum connector and check to see if you have engine vacuum on one port(around 15" vacuum). The ports are as follows - one port goes to engine vacuum, one port goes to a vent and the other two go to your shift motor. The hoses that go to the shift motor are bad for getting plugged, so you should use compressed air and see if they are clear.

If everything checks out, you will have to remove the switch on the transfer case and operate it by hand while the engine is running and see if the plunger moves in and out. Sometimes the plungers will stick in!

A vacuum gauge and pump are needed to check the motor and switch. If you don't have one, you might need to borrow one and put a vacuum on the shift motor and see if it holds vacuum. Once you put a vacuum on the shift motor the fork should move and then should pump down and hold a vacuum, if it doesn't hold vacuum, you will need a shift motor.

This is alot of info, but there are many possibilities for this not working and you will have to check all these things to diagnose this.

Stuck in 4 wheel drive Lo. Want switch back to 2 wheel drive


Smetimes these can be difficult to get out of 4 low. Put the vehicle in neutral and the switch in 2 wheel drive. Give it a minute to shift. If it doesn`t move the vehicle about an inch and try it again. I had an 03 dakota and an 02 durango and they were both like this.

2004 Dodge Dakota V8 that is Idling very rough and the engin stops at times, and the automatic transmission is also not shifting smoothly.


transmission probably needs fluid and filter change. as for the the engine not running smootly, it may be in need of a tune up, you know, changing air filter, spark plugs, spark plug wires... or it could be a weak fuel pump.

I recently purchased 04 Dodge Neon SXT automatic transmission and now the check engine lite is on and the transmission will not shift past 40mph but will go to 60mph is the transmission toast


Its probably just a shift solonoid. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes at your local auto parts store and bring the codes back here so we can help you determine whats going on with it.
