shifting issues
a friend of mine has a 96 ram with a 318 and she says that when she is driving she is getting real hard shifts some of the times and and others it seems like it does not want to shift at all. she said that she took it to a mechanic and they said that she needed a new motor which does not really make since to me but i could be wring... anyone have any ideas??? :4-dontknow:

Check the fluid. If its good, bring it to a tranny shop. Might be a simple fix, but a sign of bigger things to come if not taken care of.

Start with basic service. Fluid and filter, band adjustment. Go from there.

I currently have a similar issue with my 97. At the 1 same gear it never wants to shift in if im accelerating really slowly unless I either accelerate harder or let off the gas completely.

Would love to know any info that you've found?
