Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
1999 Dodge Durango 4x4 (smaller engine; 5.2L I think) was riding down the freeway at approximately 55mph when I heard a whirring noise coming from the front-middle of the truck followed almost immediately by extremely loud clunking noises (almost sounded like the CV boot broke away) and then the truck lost all power in the drivetrain. It won't shift into any gear (sounds like the gears are just spinning) and there was a lot of what looks like tranny fluid beneath the truck as well as a trail from where it appeared to have started faulting. Is it possible that we just need to replace the transfer case and/or yoke and spline, or is this going to involve more?
From what you said, it sounds like the converter on the transmission may have broken, Since it's loosing oil, it shouldn't be difficult to determine which part is leaking.
Check the transmission and transfer case fluid. Whichever is low is the unit with the problem. To verify, re-fill it and put a pan under there and start it up and look. You mentioned the yoke and spline. If either have broken you need to determine why, then replace whatever is necessary. If the splined shaft that the yoke is attached to has broken then the transfer case will need to come apart as it is part of the larger internal assembly. (may be easier for you to just get a different unit from a scrapyard.)
