So I just picked up a 2000 dodge Dakota with the 4.7 and nsv3500 5 speed.
230,000 miles, runs awesome.

the only thing is the transmission whines while at idle and while in gear, only time it stops is when the clutch is down on the floor ( clutch depressed )

I can physically hear the input shaft slowing its whine to a halt when I hit the clutch

my question is, is this transmission gonna die on me or is this a common problem?
I bought it for $2000 so it wouldn’t be too hard to sell it and get my money back.

I really enjoy the truck though and would hate to sell it.

also I’ve read one person just dropped transmission and replaced the input shaft bearing and the countershaft bearing. Is that just a bandaid or is that the proper repair?

Sounds like it is the Through out bearing. I think that's what it's called. It's the bearing that the clutch fork pushes on to release the clutch plate.
