I am absolutely beside myself .
Going to work this morning . Exited off the beltway and stopped at the traffic light . Made my right hand turn and the truck just doesn't feel right . Pull into work and it's feeling bad . Back into my parking spot and the transmission just feels like absolute dog shit . It's not slipping . It feels dead . No response when cracking the throttle . It even sounds winey when in gear . The fluid still looks red and doesn't have much of a smell . It almost feels like it's in second gear (limp home mode) but I confirmed that it's not . I am so pissed right now . The truck hasn't been abused , if anything it's been babied . So before I turn the truck off I see the check engine light is on . I'll have to see if I can get any codes out of it tomorrow . But I just have a bad feeling . This will be the third time in 130,000 miles . If I could find a 5 speed truck I'd convert the damn thing . I really hate automatics anymore . I had to get this off my chest . DAMN IT

That sucks. Hope you get it figured out. But thats a dam dodge tranny for ya.

Well after all the BS with the tranny issues in my truck and SRT car , momma has given me the go ahead to cut the truck and Cadillac loose and purchase myself a brand new Ram . I spent today getting the SRT car straightened out . Drove home this evening and felt great . I also talked with my buddie at a local trans shop . He's trying to track me down a 5 speed donor truck and wants to check out my trans before I condemn it . I would really love a new truck but at this point don't want another car payment . Gonna try and get the ram to the shop and see what he has to say . Fingers crossed .
