Transmission shifting problems

Asked by Nov 15, 2015 at 03:46 PM about the 2003 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Suddenly with no warning transmission was
slipping after replacing radiator. Took back
to shop replaced tranny filter and bands
adjusted. Slipping stopped but was not
shifting into OD. Each day it seemed more
more difficult to shift into higher gear. Was
running 30-35 at about 2000 RPM as it
would not shift. Suddenly it would through
me into neutral a new issue that developed
a few days later. If put into neutral and then
back to drive it would engage gear again.
Last night I drove I heard a strange noise
and couldn't engage any gear but reverse.
Pulled over shut off and sat. When help
arrived put into gear and started do living
again. Drove as far as I could approx 2
miles down road and lost all gears but
reverse this time no weird sound. Shut off
again, this time still no gear but reverse.
Similar prob occurred few years ago but
never lost all gears only had first, that was
governor sensor and solenoid. Does this
sound like this again, or did the tranny junk
out? Has me puzzled as to the sudden of
this and only after radiator was replaced.
