The rattling from the cat. is from a plate inside cat. there has been some recalls for this. check with dealer. i had mine replaced twice. As for the engine racing, sounds like clutch or linkage might be bad. take it to a trans shop and have them do a test.

2005 Dakota slow pickup at idle speed


Cold be a few things. First is to do a cylinder compression test. I f they are good, could just need a tune up. Could also be a transmission problem. Have the codes read. Slow pick up could be shift solenoid. Put the shifter in low gear. See what it does. Manually shift it.

The 2004 Envoy has a problem with the transmission failing. It could be an electronics problem, but it sounds as though there is no pressure in the transmisssion, perhaps a bad pump.

'89 dodge dakota manual transmission A535 will not shift out of 4th gear. the stick will move around and even go into other slots but gear stays locked in 4th. what's wrong


Most likely solution is the gear selector fork in the transmission has broken and is no longer engaging the gears.

Repair requires transmission removal and partial overhaul.

4x4 slips shiftin gears starting and stopping


you might already know but when shifting into 4wd you can shift into 4hi while driving as long as the tires,(all four) are travelling the same speed. you can't shift into 4wd if you are spinning. 4 low you have to completely stop. When you are in 4 low as you know the power of vehicle is greatly increased due to gear reduction. so if you are seeing slipping symptoms, you might want to change transmission filter. It might not be much help to you but it might prevent problems down the road. also when changing fluid be sure to put mopar transmission fluid for replacement on jeep. like gm calls for dexron. the transfer case on dodge and jeeps also takes transmission fluid. I had to replace a t-case on my friends dakota that was making a grinding noise and it turns out a seal had leaked some fluid out and burnt up some bearings. pretty expensive. they are chain driven. hope I didnt get too carried away, because I am not a transmission expert but I just wanted to share what I did know with you.
