Default just baught a 98 ram

Hey guys i just baught a 1998 dodge ram 1500 reg cab short bed sport for 600 bucks, yea i know 600! struck a deal. the trucks beat up a little but all cosmetic stuff. it has 183,000 miles on it and a really good running 318.

The kid i baught it from didnt know much about it but they had the tranny replaced with a used tranny because the old one went out. And the tranny they put in it is a little sketchy so i wanna know what you guys think.

They said sometimes it wouldnt shift out of 1st gear but its never done that to me yet, but when i was driving it and got warmed up it was workin fine just it wont go into overdrive, the light comes on and i cant get it to go into O/D even with the button. but when its sat and its cold you can turn the overdrie on and off.

And the loud ticking noise it has at idle, they said it didnt do any of this stuff untill after they put the new, used tranny in it. it makes a loud tick or klunk at idle but as soon as you put it in drive or rev it up it goes away.

Just wonderin what you guys think anything would be cool thanks guys.

I wish I had an answer, but you got a great deal and are probably ahead even if you got to get another transmission.
