I have had this truck serviced at frederick Dodge 4 times. Second time brought in for same problem, told that rear sensor is bad, that was replaced, third time, same problem, told that software for tcm needed to be updated. We paid for everything else to get fixed and I refuse to pay for anything else. The truck is driven by her 99 percent of the time. The truck has 66,000 miles now.

Thanks for your support of our channel!! This wasn't the first time the gear selector jumped out of gear. The rear end leaks and the dealer says its natural. After hearing about the problem with the balljoints, I had it re-inspected many miles later only to find that I am lucky that a wheel has not came off bad joints. The engine idle makes me feel like the truck is going to stall out and I will have to restart it not good if you are sitting in a line of moveing cars. I highly recommend the rubber type.
Does anyone here know if that's the case? I'm just going to drop the pan and not a whole flush. The tcm seems to be an issue. I have had multiple problems with this truck ever since it was bought new, they had to replace the power steering pump, malfunction indicator light mil on the dash. The dealer said that they would look at it this time put they couldn't make any promises. Took to the dealer while still under warrenty they said it was typical that the torque converter would drain down and that you had to put it in neutral for a few seconds to let the converter fill before putting in gear. It looks nice but hp , brakes and over all performance sucks.
