Question about Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

I had the clutch replaced on my 1997 Dodge Dakoto and I now have an excessive amountt of transmission noise when I pull away from a stop. It sounds like growling (not grinding) gear noise. It?s also apparent when backing up. The noise is somewhat less early in the morning but gets louder after driving around. When I disengage the clutch , there is loud rattle sound which stops after the clutch has be depressed and then released.

Why did my 2005 dodge dakota 4x4 transmission suddenly stop pulling while I was driving. It will not do nothing in any gear.


Unless you know a whole lot about diagnosing and rebuilding transmissions, you need to get it to a qualified transmission shop. From your description, the only external checks are to see if the driveshafts are securely installed, and see if there is any evidence of excessive transmission fluid leaks.

Why cant my 2005 dodge stratuss pick up speed when i press on gas pedal


Sounds like a transmission problem, specifically that perhaps the transmission fluid is low if your truck has an automatic transmission, or the clutch is slipping terribly if it has a manual transmission.
- You need to include this information on such questions.

Metal on metal noise


hi,

most likely the throw out bearing is at fault. when you push the clutch a spinning bearing pushes the clutch plate away from the flywheel disengaging trans so you can switch gears. the transmission has to come away from the engine to fix it.

If the pilot bearing was the problem it would make noise with the clutch pushed and go away when you let it out. Have you checked the fluid level in the transmission?

Manual transmission noise


It's most likely your throw-out bearing. It's located very inconveniently on the front shaft of the transmission and the way to remove and replace is to pull the tranny from the car... While you're at it, inspect the clutch and pressure plates and the pilot bushing (located in the center of the flywheel).

I have a 90 jeep wrangler, 4cyl and 5 speed transmission, when i accelerate in any of the gears, it makes a popping noise and the second it makes that noise it seems like the jeep stops pulling, if you...


It sounds like it is the throw out bearing. From your description of the vehicle not pulling its weight, it is going to need a clutch. The throw out bearing will come in most clutch kits, so when you replace the clutch you can replace the throw out bearing, pressure plate, and pilot bushing.

check the fluid first and if ok could be a bad bearing in trans or if the noise changes when pressed in it could very well be throught bearing going bad if it is drive it until it starts squealing and then get it fixed might run for years like that

2004 Dodge 2500 diesel, manual trans. noise/whistle


If your certain the noise is from the transmission, you need to take this vehicle to a shop you trust. It sounds as though the fluid pump in the transmission is either starving for fluid, due to a blocked strainer, or the pump is suffering a bearing failure. If you continue to run this vehicle, you stand the chance of stranding yourself, or burning the clutches from a lack of fluid. Good Luck.
