Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

Loud clank from manual tranny

I have a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab with a manual transmission. When in gear, any, the transmission makes a loud clank noise and jolts back and forth. Sometimes its random and doesnt start until 5 or 6 gear. Sometimes it starts right away in 1 gear. It can happen in low rpms or mid or high, never know. But CLANKING is loud and violent sounding and isnt good at all. Note, axle has extension piece due to being a quad cab and has the smaller v8 engine. Truck has 40,000 miles on it and clutch is good and has plenty of hydr. fluid.

Sounds like you either chipped a tooth of one of the gears or something came loose inside. I would not drive it at all You could make it a whole lot worse if there is a good sized chunk of metal floating around in there. Take it to transmission shop or better yet have it towed!!! If whatever is in there lodges between a couple of the gears you will be spending a lot more money trying to get it repaired. Good luck!
