We just purchased a used 2002 Dodge Dakota with 13,000 miles on it. The
truck sat for 18 months not driven. The owner was sick and died. They had
an extended warranty -- truck was covered. The warranty was not
We drive the truck away -- and 30 miles later, the transmission slips
between 2nd and 3rd gear. It revs up -- and doesn't go forward -- then
slips into gear and goes.
We check the trans fluid, it's just at add. We add it. It drives way
better. 30 miles later, it slips again.
We look under the truck, and see a leak coming from near the bell housing.
Anyone have any experience with this? Dodge just visually looked at leak
and said trans needs to be rebuilt or replaced.
Could it be something else??
