On the freeway only doing about 65ish (traffic), found an open spot in the next land, hit the gas to speed up and switch lands, jerk in truck and a noise and now the truck is a paper weight..
Put it in any gear and step on gas and the tranny is making a noise. Tried putting it in 4W High and nothing, tried putting it in transfer case neutral and nothing, can't put it in 4W Low, transfer shifter will not go, and now it will not go back to 2W again either (this problem has been there since I had to replace the transfer case shift linkage about 1 - 1.5 months ago.. damn thing feel off the truck and had to buy a new one...).
Stealership told me that since FIAT took over they won't even work on a 05 transmission, I either have to buy a rebuild or new one. WTF?!
Tomorrow I have to start calling around and see if I can find a good local repair shop and how much they are going to flock me over to fix or replace it...
Last time trans went bad was when I had 57K miles on it and the torque converter locked up and stripped the input shaft, it was under warranty so I didn't mind. Honestly, it's almost 57k miles since it was fixed (have about 109K miles on it now) and if this is all they are designed to last, this is totally FLOCKED UP!
Also going to check the truck tomorrow morning to see if there's any codes, I was too stressed out today to even think of checking.
And before anyone says it, YES the tranny oil is ok, I checked it last week and my son checked it while we waited about 1 FLOCKING HOUR for AAA to come tow it (put it on a flat bed).
I"ll update tomorrow..
Just wanted to see if anyone had any ideas...
Tail shaft is not broken, truck was in Park on the emergency parking lane and we couldn't move it.
I have a feeling that either it's the torque converter / input shaft again or maybe the bands finally died?
