#836 of 1029 tranny troubles
Jul 31, 2010 (11:59 am)
my 1997 dodge dakota has the engine light on and the codes were po753 and po743 I need some help on trying to get this fixed without going to the shop no money to spare. The truck revs high and seams to be missing 1st gear after it is moving it does shift up and down but not into first.
I was told that if I take the transmission pan off I should be able to get at the solenoids and replace them. how do I tell which one is bad, can I ohm them out?

#840 of 1029 2004 Dakota Delayed downshift
Aug 14, 2010 (3:53 pm)
Hello, I have a 2004 4.7l V8 4x4 Quadcab. I have 30,000 mile and 3 months left on power train warranty. When I have to come to a quick stop say for a traffic light changing, my truck will not finish downshifting until after I have come to a stop. Once truck is stopped, I feel a significant shudder and truck may even lung forward (only slightly). I had this problem diagnosed and repaired by dealer, but what they fixed, did not fix problem. First, I should mention, that when test driving with mechanic, when we turned o/d off, problem seemed to go away. O/D back on, problem came back. Mechanic seemed to focus on 4th to 3rd downshift and not so much the shuddering at the stop. He replaced a solenoid pack and said problem was fixed. I noticed the signs of trouble coming back almost immediately. 2 weeks later and I can definitely get truck to shudder again when stopping rather quickly (normal driving). I am wondering if anyone has any insights on what is really going on, so I can mention to dealer when I bring truck back in. I would like to get fixed before warranty is up. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

#844 of 1029 Transmission repairs - should I pay??
Aug 22, 2010 (12:37 pm)
I have a 2000 Dakota 4x4 4.7L that blew the front transmission seal. It is at the dealer and the dealer is saying that they have to replace the front pump and the torque converter because seals don't "just blow like that without a reason." Dealer is saying the reason the seal gave way is the bushings have gone bad in the pump which will also tear up the torque converter...hence it all needs to be replaced. I have had no major symptoms of the converter going bad before the seal gave way...no slippage or anything like that. I have changed the transmission fluid about 2 years ago so maintenance has always been on schedule. Dealer wants an arm and a leg to fix it and I'm wary of them ripping me off.
Anyone have an opinion??
