2000 Dodge Ram 1500 V8 4x4 gear shift problems

Asked by May 13, 2016 at 03:11 PM about the 2000 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

During the winter when I put my truck in 4wd, it started slipping back into 2wd several times while I was driving.  I kept having to put it back in.  After parking it.  I noticed it was very hard to move the gear shift.  I tried to put it through the gears, i.e., 4x4H to 4x4L and couldn't move it.  So I shoved it hard with my foot and it finally moved into 4x4 L.  Then I put it into 2wd and can drive in 2wd, but before I take it to the repair shop, I want to know what is wrong with it.  Has it lost its lubrication or is something broken inside?
