Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD

1 Answer

When I hit 40 to 60 on the road I get a humming sound under hood

When I hit 30, 40 and 60 mph on freeway I get a humming sound or a rubbing sound also described as going over those freeway lines with the bumps, lasts for 3 to 5 seconds. I am really worried that it is the transmission. What are the signs and symptoms of a tranny going bad?
Thank you,

Elizabeth

Slippage and not goingg in gear elizabeth. If your trans made that much noise you would be walking..I suggest you have your tires chk'd, all four, to ensure you do not have tire tread separation or a wheel balance issue. Good Luck and good luck.

I would take a look under the car and see if there is any obvious damage. It's possible that the exhaust or catalytic converter may have become restricted when you hit whatever you hit. This would be consistent with the 30mph symptom that you are having as well.

Front end vibration at 40 mph and rubbing sound


Vibration at 40 mph hard to diagonisis without looking at front end. Could be wheels need balancing, new wheels and rims. Loose or worn suspension items.
Bring vehicle into a tire and alignment shop. Most Sears auto center have them.
With regards to rubbing noise again hard to diagonisis without looking at the affected tire, probably a splash shield hitting the tire in reverse.
Alignment shop will find the problem.

Loud annoying sound when driving over 35 mph


Check the fluid level and make sure. If the fluid level is not the problem, I would have someone do a complete check on the front end.

There is a loud noise at 45mph.


Find a quiet empty stretch of road. Go 50 mph, put the trans in NEUTRAL and shut the engine. If noise is still there, swing car left and right to detect noise differences. Could be hub or axle bearings. Not engine or trans if noise is still there. Hope this helps

Anti-lock and trac-off lights


It could be a loose wire under the hood or dash. Was there any smell associated with the pop-hiss? It sounds like there was a short in the main power somewhere that literally killed your engine and then let it restart under it's own momentum. Hence the blackout and reset of the main computer.
