is it gonna cost me?

7 posts in this topic

Back to my ol' friend the 01 Durango, automatic. I posted a quesiton awhile back about a strange sensation, told rotate tires. Didn't really change anything, but then it stopped. So, last weekend driving home it sounds like my engine is revving too much. I pull off and from a stop slowly accelerate, yes it does sound like it.

So here are the symptoms: I don't notice anything in reverse. Accelerating, it winds up to around 2300 before going into the next gear. It will do this thru the 3rd gear, then it may go into 4th, depending on my speed. If it does go into 4th it will not go into OD at all. I took it to one shop and just described what it is doing and told take it to a tranny shop, so I am doing that later today. Tranny flushed and new filter 4K miles ago, told no shavings in it.

Can anyone make any sort of educated guess at what it may be? I don't want to get jacked around but I don't have any mechanical know how to know if I am or not.

I should add that before all this, a typical RPM shift would be around 17-1800 RPM, but now the needle goes about half way between 2K and 2500, there are times I just let off the accelerator to let it shift.

Nope, not good at all!

I would drop the pan and see if you have any metal or junk in their. My guess you will.

A good thing to do is go to a Dodge dealer and get a test ride with a trans tech. and see what they say. Normally, it would be hard to get a tech. to ride with you, but from what I have heard most dealers are not busy at all right now.

Some times a service, flash or update fo the TCM, other external device can be replaced, but most likely I would say it could be O/k time frown.

Good luck!

Well, luck was on my side: I took it to a tranny shop yesterday and they did their road test, not the tranny. I believe they called it the fan clutch? It is seized up so the fan is just cranking away and that is why it sounds like it is revving, not the engine, but the fan! Said the tranny is all good, so tomorrow new fan clutch going in!

That would be cool and the fan clutch will do that.

    • Your best angle of attack should come like this: Do you need to control your trolling motor with your sonar? if so you have 2 choices. Lowrance uses motor guide and H-bird goes with Minnkota. If that is not a requirement than the field is wide open. IMO don't go with a screen smaller than 9" with side imaging there is so much detail that its hard to see on a 7" screen. I'd stay away from garmin or any unit that doesn't have a true down scan ducer that uses software to produce a down scan image there is just too much stuff lost without it.   
    • It's a pop or in my case an ice tea bottle with several 1/8" holes near the bottom of the bottle.  I then roll up paper towels and get as many as I can stacked inside the bottle.  When I need to cough I unscrew the top and cough into it.  It definitely softens then noise to more of a rush of air sound.
    • I use the standard frogs (non-Popping) as i feel i can always pop a non-popping.  I do like to throw into cover and hit those pockets and open area's ... there is times when walking it really makes a big difference on strikes.  Can't wait for the season!!  i was just experimenting with the frogs and not bass fishing yet.   We will keep in touch and see how ya all are doing with the frogs this summer.  I am intrigued also with the Zoom Horny toad, ready to try those also.   Cret
    • What spin is needed? We lost, this happens all the time in the playoffs, that is why they play the games. Our very own team has bounced two division leaders in the past 4 years, are we going to give them credit for those series wins or just completely focus on the negative and whine about everything. There are plenty of positives to take away from this season, really there is a ton to be excited about going forward if you don't solely focus on all thing negative.
    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows.
