    '01 Dodge 1/2 ton. Trans. shifts and goes into gear fine, but when put into reverse you hear a stranging buzzing rattle type noise. It does not always do it, and somethimes it is worse/lounder than others. Could this be something internal or something minor with the linkage or something??

    I've got a 1998 that has been doing it for the past 60,000 miles...a kinda buzzing humming noise....84,000 total on the truck and we pull 5,000 lbs with it every Mon-Fri and it has worked fine, so I figure in this case instead of opening it up I'll call no harm no foul until it lets go altogether.

    Thanks mike, that was kind of my thinking, I plan on running it until something happens where it won't work at all.
