Question about 2000 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab

1 Answer

TRANSMISSION SEEMS TO VACILATE BETWEEN 3RD AND

TRANSMISSION SEEMS TO VACILATE BETWEEN 3RD AND 4TH GEAR ON THE HIGHWAY. OCCASIONALLY THE TRANSMISSION DROPS OUT OF GEAR COMPLETELY FOR A FEW SECONDS. THE VACILLATION IS NEARLY CONSTANT. THE DROPPING OUT IS INTERMITTENT AND IS MOST LIKELY TO HAPPEN WHEN THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN ON THE ROAD FOR A WHILE. I HAVE TRIED CHANGING FILTERS AND FLUID. MY MECHANIC CLAIMS DODGE HAD A LOT OF PROBLEMS W/ THEIR OD TRANSMISSIONS AND SUGGESTS IT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. A FRIEND W/ A DAKOTA SUGGESTS IT IS JUST A SENSOR OF SOME KIND.

88 volvo 240 dl won't shift into 4th


This is common to the AW70 transmission when the rear bushing has been left very worn for a period of time. The rear shaft wear heavily on the main transmission housing causing the pressure not to build enough to engage the overdrive gear.

2003 toyota echo when shifting above 45 mph makes a loud high rpm noise especially on the highway


If it is not going into overdrive or lockup it could be the fluid or an electrical problem. Some of the shifting is controlled by solenoids now.
You may have to get a transmission shop to evaluate it for you.

Transmission will go in 3rd gear and stays there till i turn car off and restart it then it will work fine for awhile.,transmission seems to work fine till this happens.


the problem is common for these vans. I'm on my 4th and the first one did this to me. What is happening is that the transmission solenoid has gone out. The transmission stays in 1st to allow you to get to safety until it can be fixed. Occasionally shutting the van off and letting the transmission cool off will allow it to work normally until it acts up again. This is not a real expensive repair but not something for a novice.
