Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

Water in transmission

My transmission just stopped working...Like I was in neutral. I have a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport 4x4 Hemi.I had it towed to a transmission garage and he dropped the pan and said that water was in the transmission. I NEVER went through huge puddles or standing water. I had the truck for over a year now. I always check the fluids and the transmission fluid ...... to me ..... looked, smelled and felt like transmission fluid. Can there be another underlining problem??? How else would water get in there? PLEASE HELP!!!

There may be a vent pipe on top of the transmission that could have allowed moisture/water to enter. But I doubt it.
If the fluid was milky I would say the cooler in the radiator was leaking. But you said it looked ok when you checked it.
Did you see the evidence of water the shop claimed to be there ? Did they offer a reason for it ?

Take a look at the down shift cable and make sure its not broken especially were it connects to the throttle linkage.And maybe try cleaning the electrical plug that plugs into the trans.Its about a 7 to 9 wire plug.They tend to collect water and short the wiring out.

SOURCE: 2005 dodge Ram 1500 truck 5.7 Hemi check engine lights comes on

Two things you want to know about the check engine light on any vehicle. One is it's an emission warning. The most common cause is a loose gas cap, make sure it clicks when you gas up. Second, is that being an emissions light, is that it'll require some test equipment to find the problem if you checked the gas cap and it's tight. You will want to do that at your friendly Dodge dealer. Why? They'll not only know what it is, it might be fixed free in the emissions warranty which has some parts that are covered longer than the vehicle's regular warranty. The shop on the corner doesn't do warranty work and they're not going to tell you if it might be covered.

SOURCE: unable to remove fan from water pump

Remember, fan has a reverse thread. Righty-tightey, lefty-loosey does not apply. You need a clutch fan wrench. (available at your local auto parts store.)

SOURCE: how do i check the rear differential fluid on a

All differentials have a provision to check that. Usually you will find a rubber plug in the cover or a access port in the housing with a male or female 1/2" wrench attachment provision. (basically a pipe plug) Always check on level ground. Fluid should be just at or slightly below the hole.(use your finger or a pencil as a dipstick.)

The problem may be related to technical service bulletin TSB 03-001-07 which involves replacing the front axle actuator disconnect and a software update. You should be able to Google the TSB and look at the build date listed in the bulletin to determine if it applies to your vehicle.
