Moses Lake, WA

transmission will not shift into first gear when putting in drive. feels like it's starting off in third gear or something. works if you put it in first gear, or second, just not drive. it happened all at once for no reason. also air conditioning only works when moving. if you stop it doesn't work. i have had the freon checked and is okay. and now just today, it died for no reason. i stopped at the bank to make an overnight deposit, when back to my truck, and turned the key and nothing. just like that. i had to walk at least a 1/2 mile to the nearest phone to have my son come get me. we jumped the vehicle and it started. but the instrument lights were flashing. than just before i got home, the check gauges light came on and the battery gauge was at the highest level. it had no prior problems. one more thing, i have had the shocks replaced 5 times in front. and my back ones are now broke. i have never been off road in this truck, i don't "hot rod" it, just normal everyday city driving. *nm

my 1999 dodge ram 1500 club cab 2-wheel drive automatic with a 318. 48,000 miles already had the trans go out, the catalytic converter went bad, the third brake light leaked when it rained, spot welds came through the paint on the drivers door skin,drivers side license plate light went out and changing the bulb doesnt fix it, the thermostat gasket went bad,the rear brakes somehow came out of adjustment and trashed the drums,passenger side front wheel bearings went bad, passenger side upper and lower ball joints went bad, front sway bar bushings went bad,when cold the trans slips, inner welds on the drivers side door have popped causing vibration,and knock on wood that is all for now i think.

Dodge Ram Club Cab 1998

vehicle jumps out of drive gear into neutral during normal driving conditions, due to design of vehicle's v-10 which is so heavy causing the frame to flex and the transmission is designed with no "detent" to keep the vehicle in drive (design flaw). mjs
