junk or no
My 98 durrango is not switching in gears. I can't
get up to 30 mph. And its making this loud noise. I
got a test for transmission. No codes came back.
Also mymy trans temp light is on. I got my trans
fluid flushed but not changed the filter. It still starts
up and drive its actually a good truck just don't
know what to so with it. Miles are real high too.
Sounds like you will need someone local to diagnose the issue, sounds driveline related. I'd only be guessing it's time for anew trans.
I never ever recommend a transmission flush. Especially on an older model. Most likely what's happened is all the "junk" that's been dislodged from the flush is now clogging up the filter causing you to lose fluid pressure. Many times that "junk" in there actually helps keep worn parts working by giving them something to grab onto. Try changing the filter. It should have been done as part of the flush service. If that doesn't work, personally, I'd get rid of it. It's 18 years old and you said that it has a lot of miles on it. HTH. -Jim
I couldn't agree more. A flush will pick up that small debris, the junk, that lays in the bottom of the pan or in filter, and does no harm. Many cars have a magnet in the transmission pan, ( My Toyota has that) that collects steel dust. A flush disturbs all that and circulates it through your transmission doing far more harm than benefit. Then also, some places use solvents in a flush that never get entirely out. It does nothing with the torque converter either. The oil-change joints push them because it's a very high profit procedure. And they have to pay for those expensive flush machines. Not to mention they have to remove the cooler lines and replace. One more thing...for the $125 to $200 will be a start to save for a rebuilt transmission. IMHO..~~David
Thank you guys so much. I think I'm gonna change the fluid if that doesnt help i was gonna try the governor silinoid or whatever it is jus not sure if I wanna put all that money in it with 201 miles
You're welcome. Glad to help. -Jim
