98 Dodge Ram 1500 4X4


Asked by mmwilson52 May 16, 2012 at 01:17 PM about the Dodge RAM 150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Last summer the throw out bearing (pressure release bearing per Dodge) failed, so the throw out bearing, pilot bearing and flywheel were replaced along with the pressure plate getting turned.  It has worked great, until last week when it began making a grinding noise when engaging the clutch, ittermittently.  Also found that the battery was not holding a charge properly.  Changed out the battery, and now the grinding sound has quit.  Could the lack of good charge effect the hydraulic system of the clutch via some solonoid not functioning correctly, and thus cause the clutch not to engage correctly?

1 Answer


The battery was not holding a charge correctly, so changed out for new battery and the problem has gone away. The BATTERY.
