    What would cause strange noise in 2wd that stops when shifted into 4wd?
    It's a grinding sound, not real loud, but you can definetly hear it. It sounds like it's somewhere between the driver side wheel and the transfer case. It doesn't always make the noise but usually starts after driving between 5-30 miles. As soon as I switch the dial ...

      Try a different repair shop - once this one repairs the existing leak for free. The power steering hoses should cost maybe $50.00 each. The transmission oil cooler line is around $40.00 - of course these prices are for the parts alone - not the labor.

      Get different estimates - there is no way this work should have cost more than $200.00

    Transmission Compatibility - 97 1500 4x2 and 98 1500 4x4
    I have a 97 Ram 1500 4x2 and a 98 Ram 1500 4x4. The 98 is in great shape, but the transmission is shot. The 97 is in horrible shape, but the Transmission is in great shape. Any chance I can use the 97 4x2 trans in the 98 4x4 truck? ...Many Thanks

      Yes, both are same for the 2WD and 4WD; transmission code = 46RE. Same transmission, should interchange no problem.

      Remove the pan on bottom of trans

      You will see the filter

      Best use the Neoprene Gasket -not the folded up cork & rubber
      ones in a box from the auto parts stores

      Get your filter & gasket from a trans parts supplier or a local trans shop

      Look at the parts sites for what it looks like

      Only use the ATF+4 & no additives

      A fluid change WILL NOT FIX a transaxle problem
      It may however cause it to slip even more

    2007 dodge ram 1500 2WD has a grinding noise coming from rear of truck, what could it be?
    Sounds like brakes rubbing on rotors, but it is not the brakes. Sounds starts once in drive at about 3 mph & stays constant while driving. What could it be?
