#1284 of 2056 Tranny or something else? 2003 3500 DSL 4X4 automatic
Dec 03, 2009 (10:52 pm)
I have a 2003 1 ton diesel 4X4 with an automatic tranny. When I floor my vehicle at 30 mph the tach goes past the indicated redline (3,000 rpm) to about 3,400 rpm, drops quite a bit RPM's as if it is going to grab the next gear but doesn't. The tach immediatly returns to 3.400 rpm and the tranny free wheels (no forward push). Shop replaced the tranny---same problem exists. Happens when vehicle is cold--as in Alaska cold but not all the time. Shop says the TP sensor checks out via the OBD test equipment as does the tranny. They said the cable also checks out?? What cable? At times the tranny runs fine with no issues. Also when cold first gear will wrap out to about 2,600 rpm before gently shifting into 2d. Shop wants to put in another tranny.
#1285 of 2056 Transmission Stuck in Drive
Dec 06, 2009 (2:49 pm)
I have a Dodge Ram Van B150 and I have always had transmission problems. I know that the slippage issue is one of many that RE's have. Today one of my workers moved the van and parked it. Upon trying to drive it again the van wouldn't go into reverse. So we added some Lucas Transmission Fix and a can of Trans-X to it thinking it was a sticky something or other. Well it's still stuck so I'm not sure what it could be. If I cycle the transmission through the gears it seems like its stuck in drive. In park it wont rev up, it seems like its in drive but still locked in park. In reverse it doesnt move although in a high rev it lurches forward minorly. In all N,D,OD,1,2 it is in drive. What could be the problem? I don't know much about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The 7year-70k warranty on my 05Ram Cummins expires in about 1100 miles and I hope to solve this by then. It has recently been serviced at the dealership for the following symptoms that still exist. After some steady driving(15-20minutes), my transmission starts to hang onto low gear longer and shifts into the next gear hard. On the reverse side of it, when slowing down it shifts sooner. At about 30mph it drops into lower gears quite abruptly. It makes it a pisser driving through the village.
Any similar situations and fix it's out there?
#1287 of 2056 Damn Dodge Transmission
Dec 09, 2009 (6:19 pm)
I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500. Now with 70,000 miles, only 10,000 past my warrenty (would'nt you know it), my check engine light goes on. The engine light gets diagnosed as a transmission code and it turns out that the cellinoid pack is taking on small metal fragments from inside the transmission, causing the cellinoid pack to short out. Dodge themselves replaced the pack but why won't the same thing happen again?? Has this happen to anyone out there?

#1290 of 2056 Trans is slipping on my 02 RAM 1500 4x4,360 auto (46RE)
Dec 11, 2009 (8:15 pm)
I have a 02 Dodge Ram 4x4 Quadcab 1500 with the 360 engine and auto(46RE) trans. The truck has 98,000 miles on it. Never any trans problem
I had changed the transmission fluid and filter about 3 weeks ago using ATF 4 fluid that I got from Autozone. No problem.
I was coming home from work yesterday and all of a sudden the trans started slipping. It got so bad that I couldnt even get the truck to move while in gear. I had to call a tow truck to get it back to my house. When he arrived I was able to get the truck to move in reverse and then briefly move forward while in drive.
Could it be something that I could of did to cause it?
When I changed fluid I had compared the new filter with the old filter and they both seemed the same.
I notice that when I let the truck sit and I start it up and shift the trans it seems to be ok but when it starts to get warm it does not want to shift and will make a tinney humming noise when put in drive or reverse but it does not make the noise while in park.
So when warm it will not want to move in reverse or in any forward gear but sometimes it will want to shift and then it will slip
Can I adjust the bands for a temporary fix? And if so how is that done?

#1292 of 2056 2006 ram transmission question
Dec 16, 2009 (1:06 pm)
my 2006 ram 4x4 quad cab hesitates to go into gear until the truck has warmed up for a few minutes, especially when its cold. It has an automatic transmission and i can start it and shift into drive or reverse but it will not engage until its ready to. any suggestions??

I am working on a '99 Dodge 2500 diesel 4x4, had trans sent to another shop to be rebuilt. The guy is supposed to be really good with these. (I have never rebuilt a Dodge trans). Put new converter and tranny back in,hooked everything up and the truck will not start with the key. The reverse lights are on when you turn the key to the run position and it does not matter what gear you put the tranny in. No codes are present, changed the neutral safety switch - no change. Also, I jump started the truck off of the starter and the damn thing just sits there like it is in park, no matter what gear you put it in or what range you put the case in. Any one have an Idea?
