98 Dodge transmission

Recommended Posts

My truck that I use to pull my toys with is giving me some issues.

First off last winter I had one of the quick connect fittings on the cooler started to leak so I had that replaced.

Today, I was pulling my boat and after I pulled the boat in the garage I had noticed little dribbles of tranny fluid on the ground. It appears that it is coming from the front of the tranny, somewhere close to the converter. Is this a warning sign? I was told by a unreliable person that the tranny could have burped up some fluid if it gets to hot.

BTW, 89,000 miles and have had everything serviced regularly.

Is that pretty common with this tranny? 98 ram 1500 318 . I have heard some horrific stories about the first generation(I think)dodges. Would that seal be between the tranny and converter or engine and converter?

Any opinions on getting it fixed or get rid of it? Its been great to me. The only problems I have really had were recall issues. The engine is mechanically sound, doesn't use any oil, suspension is great, doors might need to be replaced after next winter.

I owned a 98 Dodge with a 360 Magnum bought new. When it had 68,000 miles I lost the first of 5 - yes 5 transmissions in the next 30,000 miles. Dodge covered all of them under warrenty, but I was the one that suffered while waiting for repairs.

The last mechanic that worked on the truck said they were using the wrong pump, but wasn't sure it that was the real problem.

I traded that lemon for a '03 Hemi. It has been trouble free(knock on wood) after 85,000 miles towing my boat, camper, and other toys.

A local company purchased my '98 from the dealer with full knowledge of the tranny problems. They got 9,000 miles out of it before having more problems.

My buddy has a '98 he bought a month after I got mine and has 165,000 miles with no problems other than a fuel pump.

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
