So, I'm looking at buying a truck. Its a 96 ram, 3500, 4X4, 5spd(should say 4spd) with a cummins. Its got 200,000K on it which doesn't really bother me. What I'm wondering is the guys said 5th gear doesn't work. Why? I drove it, and I know you can't really test a truck or tranny in a test drive, but it felt good and sold. Clutch felt good, it seemed to shift good. I was talking to my dad and he said something about the manual transmissions had a weakness, and that was 5th gear. Something about a nut/bolt tended to vibrate loose. I'm not really sure. Anyways, I was hoping some of you guys knew or have heard something about this? How hard is it to fix? and Hopefully cheaply? Thanks.
