Question about 1995 Dodge Dakota

3 Answers

My truck stalled out while backing up an inclined driveway. I tried to keep accelerating and nothing happened. I put it in park and the gears grinded badly. I shut the car off, restarted and tried to put it in drive but the the acceleration wouldn't work and the rear differential started leaking. I put it back in park and it grinded once more. idk what could be wrong

I've never seen a differential fail in that situation but having been in the business a long time I've learned that all things are possible...Exactly where is the oil leaking on the diff? I'd suggest you get back onto level ground and remove the rear cover on the diff and take a look at the gears. Possible that the spider gears in the center section have broken.

Gear shift locked in park


Try setting your parking brake before you put the gear selector in park. Then put it in drive before you take the parking brake off to see it it keeps the load off the transmission when your parking on a steep incline or decline.

Parked on a inclined driveway so I went 2 release da car from park into 2 reverse n the shift won't move at all please help me


Sounds to me like there is too much weight on the "park" gear. Have someone push the car forward a little bit, and do it gently, to release some of the pressure on the transmission, and it should shift from Park without a problem. I highly recommend if parking on an inclined driveway, or any hill, to use the parking brake if it is possible to do so. Good Luck

2009 dodge charger is stuck on an incline and will not come out of park


happens to me allot,it will go in gear but you will have to apply allot more pressure than normal to get it out of park,the steeper the incline the harder you will have to pull on gear shifter( you will almost think your going to break the shifter,but you wont) to keep it from happening next time,when you pull in and put in park before you let off brake pedal apply the emergency brake,and when you get back in car to leave,start and put in gear then release the emergency brake.....

I put the car in park on a little incline and it would'nt go into reverse it was stuck and i had a hard time with gear shaft, i held the brake and tried to pull it back to reverse and it wouldn't go, my...


The parking mechanism in the transmission has a shaft which slides into a V shaped groove. This is designed to make it easier to put the car in park. The bad part is that it allows for a little movement. The best way to prevent this from happening again is to engage the parking brake when you put it in park, especially on an incline. This will prevent the rollback you experienced from happening again. Hope this helps.

the rod you mentioned is called linkage, yes it's posible, snow may have jammed up under the car and is stopping it from properly engageing, or the grinding could be internal in the transmition, jack the car up, put jack stands under the frame,block the tiers, and take a real good look at were the linckage conects to the tranny, good luck

Gear locks when i park on even a slight incline


ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake BEFORE putting car into "Park". When you want to get out of "Park", put your foot on the brake pedal, move gear shifter into desired gear, THEN take down Parking Brake. If you get stuck (gear shifter doesn't move), then try the "rocking" method (recruit 1 or 2 folks to push your car from behind while you try to move gear shifter into desired gear). Good luck!
