The transmission in a Dodge truck has a few common and known problems for most model years. Dodge trucks are considered dependable by some, and are used extensively for hauling and towing. Because of the abuse they take, they suffer the same kinds of problems over the years. Before taking your truck to a dealership or transmission specialist, you will want to troubleshoot your Dodge truck issues.
Turn on the engine. Listen for a rattling or clunking noise when shifting gears. Because Dodge trucks are subjected to heavy loads, the transmission mounts do wear out over time. Ask a professional mechanic to install new mounts.
