This article applies to the Dodge Ram 2nd. Well, it actually got us nowhere here. With all the different opinions n shit. I love everything else about my Maggie but am considering selling her just for these embarrassing problems. The newer ones do not have these problems do they??? Dealerships, tire shops, and so on all pointed to an internal ruckus in the Transfer Case. I have a slight incline out of my driveway to the street and the car would buck with light throttle pressure - it felt almost like a slipping transmission. This article applies to the Dodge Ram 2002-2008.
There is also an issue in Nag1 with valve bore wear in lock-up in valvebody that causes this and surging at stops,etc. Could it be this transmission issue? Just dumped in a bottle of Lubegard Instant Shudder Fixx Dr. I replaced the torque converter. I know there was a service bulletin on rebuilding the rear end basically to reseat, not replace everything. New converter in and she's back like new! A full flush is the only way you should be changing the fluid. Sent from my Droid using Tapatalk New converter in and she's back like new! Thanks It won't do anything for a lag inbetween shifts. But, You cant immediately repeat it right after.
Sorry for your problems, I agree the addative had nothing to do with it. If all this is not helping the shudder I'll poor in some friction modifier from mopar. Been good all day since. As I recall applying the brake will do it. I even went as far as checking and replacing my throttle and a few other electronic cadgets which effect that.
Regardless, the tick is gone now proving it had to be something internal related to friction. That said, I have the ridiculous downshift thunk too. Is this the same kind of problem maybe? Im not nsure what the additive did. By the end of last night and through this morning it has been perfect again. Replaced the timing set and no more shudder!! Step 5 — Remove the transfer case You'll need to be careful during this next step because the weight in the transfer case isn't evenly distributed, so you'll need to balance it as best as possible. As for the tick tick I had, it was inside the t-case or transmission.
. This article applies to the Dodge Ram 2nd. It had a slight shudder. Remove bolts on the U-joint straps. The car has 55k on it.
Something like a bearing or shaft in the transmission. So I put in the friction modifier,drove it for 100miles. I underwent a complete trans build early on, found my 2nd gear pack was toasted as well as a couple clutches throughout. Not sure the thread, but it's out there somewhere. Reason: Spelling Couple of other things to remember. If you want to use it, you'll likely want someone to custom tune it because you may be right.
Ironically, my mpg's go up by using the autostick to shift - which is not what I would have expected. No more slight shudder when I take my foot off the brake at a stop. No shudder, hard solid shifts, almost crazy responsive. If it's already off, try using autostick - do you get a shudder shifting from 4th-5th-4th gear more than the normal gear change feeling? I'll see if it helps my shudder symptoms and give an update tomorrow. In fact, it is used now by many manufacturers as a general additive when servicing their transmissions. But regular driving down the freeway there is nothing I can feel and 1-3 are just fine in any situation, whereas before I added the friction additive I was beginning to get it even just crusing at certain speeds until I backed off the throttle. So, I figured while I was under there I'd replace both couplers and my drive line support bearing.
Mine continues like a champ some 3,000 miles later now! The jeep is not on Nitro lol, but it is not stock either. Why mopar atf+4 ms9206 instead of Shell atf 134 mb 236. Your transfer case can be identified not only by external features but also an identification number found on the case with a model and assembly number. Tranny and drove around for a couple minutes and it is already nearly all gone! According to the manual the rear axle fluid is 75W140 Synthetic The transfer case is 0W40. On deceleration, it shudders when the engine holds back real hard while manually downshifting it, especially in 1st gear as it gets the rpms way down close to idle.
Last week I had a new cam installed and found the timing set tensioner broken. You know, like a u-joint when it just starts to get sloppy. The free play in the drive line is normal. I have had dana rear ends with more gear and drive shaft slop but, the torqueflite transmissions never down shifted that hard to make that noise. Its nice now that its quiet again. Well, except for my downshift.
