Subject: 2000 Dakota manual transmission
IP: Logged

I have a 2000 Dakota 3.9L CC with a 5-speed manual transmission. The problem is that sometimes when I start the truck it wont go in or come out of gear. The only way to get in or out of gear is to turn the truck off. When the truck is off it has no problems going in or out of gear. It even happend once while I was driving. I got stuck in 5th. I can't make it happen it just happens. Sometimes it will happen serveral times a week and then not for a couple months. I have taken it to the dealer several times but they say they can't duplicate the problem so they can't do anything. I have even left it there for over a week. I have seem some posts on this site that seem similar ( havn't seen anyone say the've had their truck fixed. I am just trying to find something concrete to take to the dealer to get them to fix it. In the above link there was a TSB posted by Garth and was wondering if that TSB applies to my problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

Mine does the same thing.i have a friend who owns a tranny shop tell me that it is the release bearing not disengaging.The next time it does it try pumping the clutch pedal repeatedly and see if it works.Oh yea,he said the clutch master cyl. is the culprit.I am gonna have it flushed and bled to see if it cures it.
