1998 Dodge RAM Power Train Manual Transmission Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID177956
 Internal NHTSA #711586
 Model Year1998
 File date27/10/20
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThere is a buzzing noise in the transmition when put in reverse after a cold start. I have had the truck in 4 times now to remedy the problem. They say all the trucks have this problem and it is a non harmful problem that a modification has been made for. The have preformed the modification and it hasn't fixed the problem. I am bringing the truck in again for them to do the mod again. My problem is that i am about out of warrenty, and they are telling me this is a harmful problem. I have mechanic friends that agree with me when i say it sounds like the transmition isn't getting fluid when it is first put in reverse. If what myself and the mechanic friends i have are right, the transmition will eventually break. There are alot of people i know that have dodges, and none of them have this problem. Why can"t they fix this problem?
