ok, I guess the Ram is going back to the dealer again.. (99 QQ 2wd
The first time in, they changed the U-joints, rebuilt the rear end and changed a
valve body in the tranny....
The truck shifted correctly again, the vibration stopped and the grinding noise
6 months and maybe 3,000 miles later, the tranny started a minor version of the
same problem.... late or no shift into 3rd...
Back into the shop, they rebuilt the whole tranny..
now, 4 or 5 months and about 4,000 miles later, it's got what is either a new
problem or a "hang over" from the old one... wanted a few opinions/guesses
before we take it in next week, as you guys have been pretty much right every
time and it helps when talking to the dealer... especially since all the above
work is covered by the warranty we bought from them..
After driving on the freeway, when you stop at the exit, there is a "slipping"
feel and sound when you move from a stand still again... the 1st time it
happened, we thought that my wife was just spinning a bit on gravel, as it only
seems to last for about a second and then doesn't happen again until the next
time you pull off the freeway..
We took 2 trips this month, to Baja and to WA., and it happened at almost every
exit that we pulled off on... never seems to do it in traffic or anything, just
when coming off the freeway...
It seems to feel like the right rear wheel, but it's hard to tell..
Maybe a clutch in the limited slip??
Any input appreciated, as usual.. thanks..
