      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.
      There are literally hundreds of possible fault codes - so for sake of simplicity and to assist the diagnosis and repair of the issue you are having, this step is fundamental.

      P0500 means Vehicle Speed Sensor Malfunction. P0500 indicates that the vehicle’s speed as read by the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is not working efficiently.

      Possible Causes:

      Defective vehicle speed sensor
      Damaged or broken wire in the vehicle speed sensor circuit

      Possible Solutions:

      Reset the trouble code
      Clean the electrical connector
      Repair or replace the wires/connection in the vehicle speed sensor circuit
      Replace the vehicle speed sensor

      The P0700 itself simply means that there is a fault code stored for the transmission.
      The P0605 - Internal Control Module Read Only Memory (ROM) Error - more than likely the fault is in the transmission control module.
      The P1685 code is ikely the key or the immobilizer module (SKIM)

      The center pinion nut torque spec = 210 ft. lbs. (285 Nm). The driveshaft /rear pinion flange bolts torque = 85 ft. lbs. (115 Nm)

    Is it safe to take the front driveshaft off and drive in rwd until I can get it fixed
    The front of the driveshaft (cv joint cracked) came loose, dont have the extra cash to fix it but hoping to drive it in rwd for about 2 weeks until I can get it fixed. Is there anything I have to watch for or check?

    I put my 1996 dodge 2500 8cyl 5.9l in gear. And it does not move, or make a sound. The truck is running.
    It fires up but does not move when put into gear.

    Why does my van run out of anti-freeze and have to fill it on a weekly basis?
    There is no leak Changed radiator, water pump, temperature gage, and radiator cap. Oil and transmission levels appear fine.

      If it is going low weekly it has to be leaking somewhere...maybe the head gasket is going bad. How does the oil look and is the vehicle smoking (from the exhaust)? If the oil looks like foamy chocolate milk, bad head gasket. If the heat works good and the temp gauge is stable the system should be free of air pockets. I have had air pockets stuck for awhile (days) and when they free themselves the level would go down.

    Rough when auto transmission shifts
    84000 miles. Shifting up or down very rough. Idles fine and doesn't die. Air conditioner on makes problem even worse.

    Cruise control not working
    My 2005 Dodge Durango's CC has stopped working. Can't find any blown fuses. Any ideas what to check? Also the RSC light has recently come on for some reason.
