Check for damage to the rubber boot on the drive line where it connects to the transfer case. This is a cv joint, if the boot is torn the bearings will soon go bad and cause the grinding noise you are hearing. I replaced my front drive line with an improved aftermarket one that has a u-joint instead of the weaker more vulnerable cv. Found it on ebay for about 200 bucks. Same price as a oe remanufactured.

shift solinoid is about an hour job but the part is 100$ start to finish i have the same issue with my truck did not have 2nd gear but felt like an electronic problem but no codes came up so i was told check the solinoid so i did lol well it did not work bought the replacement from pull apart 5 bucks. so went and bought a new one 100$ still not the fix. so i dealt with the issue foe a few weeks and did other things to truck cause i was getting 9 miles to gallon. well did this and that and then today did a flush on the radiator and put new fluid in while sitting waiting on cool downs to drain i was tinkering with the motor and i found a cable at the trotel body that seemed loose ends up that it was the trotel valve cable and a quick tinkering with the spring on it i have 2nd gear now weird but ironically this cable is what replaced the old vacume hoses that run your tranny. cost me nothing to fix and the truck runns better than it ever did.if i bought a new cable would of been a dealer part and 80$ a new tranny would cost 1500$ a pull apart tranny 100$ and alll that crazy work because that is what i was leanning on doing next to this truck. five mins worth of work and no money can not beat that.

#47 of 50 2006 Transmission Slipping while Towing
Aug 22, 2012 (8:22 am)
Our transmission started slipping/jerking as I was towing a 2300lb trailer with about 500 lbs of livestock in it. I was traveling up long grades when I felt it begin to slip. The engine is a V8, but not the Hemi. We have towed 10 times previously with this car and in mountainous areas with no trouble. I had the guy at Advance Auto check it out and everything on his instrument came up transmission. One the the items that showed up was Torque Converter. My husband was not with me so I parked the vehicle, rented a Ford F-150 and continued my trip. We are taking it in today to be checked out. What can we expect? I can't understand why this vehicle can't tow 3,000 lbs when on paper it's supposed to tow more. Prior to our owning it for the past 10 months, it only had one owner who never towed with it and used for local driving.

#49 of 50 2000 Dodge Durango 5.2

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango it has a 5.2. It only has 2nd and 3rd gear doen't go in overdrive. The engine light comes on and the code reads P0749. When you reset it by unplugging the battery it shifts 1st thru 3rd everytime then when it gets to overdrive light comes on and has no o/d. Then when you stop it starts out in 2nd shifts to 3rd only. Limp mode. Replaced tranny twice same problem.
