Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Truck

1 Answer

2001 Dodge 4x4 diesel 6-speed. Replaced clutch and pressure plate, now the starter won't turn the engine over.. Tried turning it over with the harmonic balancer, and the output shaft on the x-fer case. No luck, it is locked up tight. Flywheel, clutch and pressure plate all installed to spec. Tranny and engine mate tight. Why is the engine locked??

One problem pops into head when I think about your description of the problem. The bolts that hold the pressure plate to the flywheel may be too long, causing the engine block to interfere with the rotation of the flywheel.

Why does the clutch slip intermittently on my Audi A4 2009 Diesel in high gears


Agreed. The clutch disk is likely worn. The pressure plate is self adjusting so there is no adjustment available on stock Audi pressure plates or indeed in most pressure plates.

Another possible cause is a leaking rear main engine seal that is allowing engine oil to seep and then be thrown around the bell housing and work its way onto the flywheel/clutch/pressure plate.

Test you clutch in 3-4 gear acceleration from a slow speed...if the engine speed flares faster than the car accelerates, you have a worn/bad clutch.

You will need the Chev pressure plate to suit the Chev flywheel and a clutch plate to suit the Ford ZF gearbox. Ford ZF throwout bearing and clutch fork should be fine.

I have a 2001 Dodge 2500 diesel 4x4. Sometimes the front axle makes a grinding sound, it happens frequently when turning. Could it be my hub assembly or does the front diff., fluid need to be changed and...


My '01 dodge 4x4 diesel had a simular problem turned out to be the dust cover or backing plate that had somehow moved probably due to expansion and contracting from the heat!

Truck won't start...


It may be a bad starter or the starter solenoid. If by not starting you mean it will not turn engine, but if the engine is turning then the starter is turning so it is something else all together.
Starters will usually work when they are cold then once warm or hot they will not work.
Hope this helps!
