Question about 1987 Dodge Dakota

1987 dodge dakota 5 speed manual not shifting into 4th

Out of the blue my Transmission will not engage 4th gear. I can shift fine into every other gear. If i hold the stick back hard it will grind a little ( I know, dont do that) It is like it will not shift back far enough to engage. Any suggestions on where to start would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Chris

Unfortunately any problem it could be will have the same fix. You will end up needing the trans replaced or rebuilt.

have the trans checked out, sounds like it might be in 2 gears when your shifting into 2nd, causing it to bind up, is there any noise when this problem occurs? a bad bearing or worn syncro rings could be the cause

99 dodge dakota wont shift from first gear but also fuel light is on i bought from auction and put 5 gal of gas and needle moved a lil would this make the truck not shift?


No the fact that your vehicle is low on gas should have nothing to do with the shifting of the transmission. You are dealing with two separate issues.

'89 dodge dakota manual transmission A535 will not shift out of 4th gear. the stick will move around and even go into other slots but gear stays locked in 4th. what's wrong


Most likely solution is the gear selector fork in the transmission has broken and is no longer engaging the gears.

Repair requires transmission removal and partial overhaul.

Shifting problems


The transmission/computer is designed not to go into overdrive until it reaches a certain temp and I don't remember what the temp is. Mine does same thing and it has 250,000 miles on it. When you start your truck up do you start it and warm up in neutral? The transmission fluid won't flow unless it is. There is know way to force it to shift into overdrive until it warms to the set temp.

Hope this helps

5th. Gear


Sounds like you may have bent a shift fork or your cluster gear has some missing teeth on it now. I would venture to say that is it a bent shift fork. This will require the transmission be removed to gain access to inspect and repair.
