What could it have been??

Asked by Aug 04, 2013 at 09:09 PM about the 1995 Dodge Dakota 2 Dr SLT 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was pulling a lightweight trailer hauling a riding mower. With my 95
dodge dokata v6 4wd pickup. It seemed like it has just been missing
power but run very well. Doesn't use oil and all the fluids have been
perfect. As soon as I topped the hill, then smoke came rolling out from
underneath. I stopped and seen alot of transmission fluid. I drove it on
home cause it still run fine and it wasn't slipping. So what happened, Did
itblow something?

Have a reputable mechanic inspect the vehicle. If something leaked it's not a good idea to keep driving it that way. Eventually you will have a catastrophic failure which could equal to more expensive repairs. You will most likely need to have transmission rebuilt or replaced with a new one or used one from a junk yard. Good luck.
