1999 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 119000 miles
I have a 99 Dodge Ram. Last winter I had a problem w/my 4wd. The mechanic told me my u-joint was broke and my transfer case was going out. Said I could still drive it, just dont put in 4wd - and transfer case will eventually go out and leave me stranded. It is now one winter later and my truck had been driving fine. But recently, it has started hesitating really bad when I give it gas - maybe feels like it's "missing". It is really sluggish going from a stop, but it will also "miss" while driving at high speeds on the highway. Also, just noticed last week that there is a clear oily liquid puddle in my garage - it leaked from the front end of truck in the center. Does it sound like the transfer case is about to go out? I had my transmission rebuilt at 70,000 - does it sound like the transmission? Could it be a fuel filter? Spark plugs? I'm lost and frustrated. I hate to take it back to mechanic because they find a million things wrong with it every time I go in. Any info is appreciated.
have the same problem?
