was driving my 03 ram a couple weeks ago on the highway about 110 km and herd a
noise then it was like someone put the truck into nuetral now the truck only moves when 4
low is engaged and makes a really nasty noise, so would that be the transmission or the
transfer case that blew?

That sounds like a transmission. Extremely common on a Dodge ram. The transfer case is only engaged when the 4x4 is on.

Have you checked your fluid level in the transmission?

OK so i was pissing around with it today and got it to move in 2high 4high and 4low but only when the tranny is cold it has a hard time grabbing gears when its been running for just over a miute

Is the fluid level low in the transmission and or the transfer case? If its not low the pump in the transmission is probably shot then.

    I have an 2001 dodge 1500. The back of the transfer case is cracked to the point that it won't hold fluid. It still shifts into 4H and 4L. Wouldn't that mean the transfer case is still in tact?
