It could, the Automatic transmission has cooling lines that run to the radiator and or to some place in or around the radiator, if they have become "pinched" it will cause issue with the trans.

As well if the linkage has been distorted this as well can affect the actions of the transmission.

Have a garage check under you Dodge for damage.

Hope this helps.

Stumped ]with my 99 suburban 454motor.got hit in the drivers wheel. Broke tie rod cvshaft and pulled ball joints out. Still was running after impact.towed home and fixed everything now won't start.


Dear Josh,
This may be called "incidental damage".
Whenever a vehicle of any kind is hit , there can be all sorts of damage that happen that seems not to be connected to the damage. For example, getting hit in the front end can cause the rear tailgate to stop opening.
Or, getting hit in the rear end can cause the transmission to fail 4 months later.
Sounds like you have failure of some engine component, or maybe to the computer.
A really good car electrician & mechanic will be needed to find and fix the damage.
God bless your efforts.

Hi Alvaro:
Since there is no question, all I can do is offer advice.
1) Report the accident to the police.
2) Report the accident to your insurance agent.
3) Trust what your insuranc agent tells you.

Automatci transmission slipping after accident


Could be damaged from the accident. Insurance companies often cover "hidden damage". The transmission lines go to a cooler built into the lower Radiator case. If the Radiator is smashed there is possibility that trans fluid and antifreeze briefly mixed and corroded the insides of your transmission.

There is a good possibility that the rear end moved forward momentarily, taking with it the transmission tube, and pushing into the transmission housing, where it can do a lot of damage. When this happens, the two universal joints suffer as well, even to the point of one of them freezing.

Consiquential = Subsiquent damage as a result of a failure/ accident.

Dodge ram fuel pump, Caused by frontal Accident?


this of course could have bent the fuel pump bracket inside the tank or damaged the wiring that supplies it power, stand by your guns, if it worked before the accident then it is accident related, I have had this kind of argument with a few insurance companies, and they always say no until u really pour it on, ask to speak to a supervisor, forget the little claims agent go over his head, it works, just be persistant..
