Q: the people i have talked to have all said that for as long as they remember dodge had some of the best engines and the crappiest trannies. of course if you baby the tranny it will keep for a long time which is what i intend to do. these statements were from people who work the trucks quite hard alot harder than i do. from factory the trannies may be a little weaker than some but no one can expect them to last forever. if mine gives me trouble its way off warantee then i intend to have it rebuilt as strong as possible so that it will last another 200000km. the tranny cooler sounds like a good idea to me just might take a look at that. kirk i just bought a 98 dakota and when my neighbor saw ithe is also a dodge owner he said i hope you have a spare couple of grand because you are gonna have to replace that tranny. is there even a grain of truth to his assertion that all dodge trucks have substandard transmissions i looked the truck up on some kind of consumer reporting website before i bought it and they said that it was a pretty much trouble free truck. please tell me that my tranny isnt destined to fail! the only other dodge i have ever owned is a 84 ram charger and i loved that truck with that big ole 360 and extra large tires wish i still had it but the mileage sucked and i travel a lot for work. any input from this group of dodge lovers will be greatly appreciated! dale simpson .
