Dodge Durango 2001 4x4 - 5.9 Transmission Blown - Locked in Drive
My girlfriend was driving down the freeway, unknowingly driving it in 4LO, put it in neutral and tried to put it back in drive while going about 50mph. I know..huge no no. However, I need to know what i should do. I'm going to pull the tranny and transfer case. I wonder if I should expect to rebuild the tranny or maybe replace it. Where exactly should I start? What happened? I'm not a pro at trannys so any help would be appreciated!
Its really hard to tell what the real issue would be it could just be the transfer case. I had a friend do the same thing in to a 99 ranger with manual transmition, and the only thing needing replacement was the transfercase. Does it go into park? Reverse? Other gears? If not any then there is a bigger issue and u will need to look @ the tranny in which case ur looking @ a possible rebuild but thats a worse case scenario, it could be a warped gear or drive belt let me know it this helps or what conclussion u come to, im interested
It's locked in drive. When it blew, a piece of the transfer case or transmission (not sure which) casing blew off. The piece is about 6 inches in diameter. I haven't got into it yet. I'll upload the picture of it, if possible.
Ok well there is a big diff u r gonna have to crawl under and see for sure which 1 it is even if it was the transfercase that blew the fact still remains that u have a big problem bcs the tranny is locked in drive..... Either way u r looking @ the worst case scenario and having to rebuild/ replace the tranny and transfercase too but until u know where that piece of shrapnel came from u wont know what exactly needs to be done
If its easier email me the pic. email@example.com . And we can go from there
I shot you an email.
