My transmission guy removed that check ball thing, he has seen many rams with trany problems, and this is one of the things dodge did that kills them. the ball gets stuck and prevents the trany from cooling. Any way when I bought my truck dodge had replaced the trany, it lasted about a year then I took it to my buddy. He rebuilt the trany, removed that check ball thing and put a different cooler in. Bottom line, I have 178,000 miles on my truck and about half of that is after my buddy did the trany work. My truck pulls a 3000lb trailer 5 to 6 days a week for work. If it were the stock setup still I would have junked it and bought a chevy. My opinion, Get rid of that check ball.
