#492 of 2056 Transmission problem
May 13, 2008 (3:11 pm)
I have a Dodge Ram 2500 year 2005 diesel 4 X 4 automatic transmission.
My pickup stopped shifting and remained stucked in the first gear. in the beginning it would occasionaly jump to the next gear and then shift normally up to the other's. I had it scanned and was recommended to change the output shaft sensor which we did today, but the problem remained the same it is not shifting at all no more
Does anyone have an answer, suggestion on this issue?

change the governer pressure solenoid and governer pressure sensor in the transmission these two items can be changed by just about any trans shop and requires only a pan drop 13mm bolts 4 11mm bolts on the gov pressure housing and 2 #25 torx bolts its a faily easy operation and will also give you a chance to see whats in your pan as far as any debris not to mention that these two item control ALL shift aspects of the trans

When the engine is cold, and I put it in drive and drive off, up to 30-35mph, the tranny slips before going into 2nd gear. Once the engine is warm, there is no problem. Also, when the engine is cold and I put it in reverse and back out and then into drive, there is no slipping. Any suggestions is appreciated. I was thinking maybe there isn't enough fluid being circulated during this time.

I'm new here, and I need help with some questions on my "95" Dodge Ram 1500, 5.9. I have trouble with my transmission, I don't have reverse. Can this get fixed by rebuilding the tranny, and fixing the bands or am I going to have to replace the whole tranny? And another ? does any other tranny interchange with this truck, I was told only one tranny will fit . is this true?

#497 of 2056 tranny grinding noise
May 19, 2008 (4:39 am)
i purchased a 99 ram 1500 4x4 5.9 with 46k 3 years ago. over those years i have towed motorcycles, furniture, nothing over the weight limit. just around april the rear transfer cased cracked. i replaced that and u-joints. about 2 weeks later the front case cracked. so i rebuilt the whole case and replaced the tranny mount and checked the motor mount. after all that when im taking off, i hear a grinding noise from my flex plate area. going down the road i would here it, but mostly when i take off. here i go, taking the dust cover off the tranny checking for broken or missing bolts. everything is there and good shape. i leave this morning (5-19-08) come to a stop sign, with no sign, i dont have drive, reverse, and it really grinds when putting in park. i am lost for words after all this time. i am close to 99k miles now. can some tell me if the torque converter is gone, which would be an easy replacement.

The problem was the Universal joints.

I replaced the pressure sensor and solenoid and changed the filter and fluid - this fixed the upshift problem. But there still are some odd behaviors - the 2-3 upshift happens in two distinct phases it starts to upshift at 30 mph (the rpm's drop to about 1800) then the rpm's climb until 34 mph when it appears to complete the shift and the rpms drop to 1500. Also, it does not appear to shift at all in wide open throttle - the rpm's will climb to nearly 4000 from 0-50 mph??? Any ideas about what is going on with these two things.

try adjusting the band its located just in front of the shifter assembly takes a 3/4 wrench to loosen locknut and 5/16 wrench to adjust the band strut turn the band strut inwards till snug and then back off 1 3/4 turns and lock down the lock nut again being sure not to let the band adjusting screw turn while you tighten locknut these units also have a habit of wearing down the front band in the transmission
