I just bought my second v-10. First was a one ton dually wiith five speed. I traded it in three years ago with 330,000 miles on it. I still see it driving around locally on almost a daily basis.

I'm reading that I need to keep linkage adjusted on AT? Something about shuddering? Is there another link on this subject?

Thanks in advance.

iv got a shuddering feeling in mine when accelerating from a stop, first thought was the original tranny was going out (and it actually was) but still did it after getting a refurb tranny. grandpa thinks its axle wrap but iv only got a 2.5 inch lift on the rear and its an add a leaf not a spacer block. but the tranny should be adjusted too so its a mystery, if anyone has had similar issues let me know, for now the truck is in storage so not worried right now

I had read somewhere that Dodge was having issues with it's V10 popping spark plugs in a certain cylinder.

basically there are i believe 2 places on the transmission with plugs depending in the transmission. you can take the plugs out and adjust the bands inside the transmission. incase you dont know how an automatic works, there are bands inside the transmission that act as gears in a manual transmission. when the transmission shifts it switches from one set of bands and drum to another. the soft shift you feel when an automatic shifts partially is the bands slipping by design just as you gently let the clutch out on a manual transmission and as the transmission ages and the bands shift more and more the friction material on the bands wears down and eventually they wear down to the point that they cant clamp completely on the drum. when this happens the bands can be tightened up giving the transmission more life before needing replaced. however this is something best done by a trained mechanic or after doing your homework and learning how to properly adjust them yourself. there may also be maintenance schedules for when the bands need tightened but i dont know that for sure.

my tranny mount is still in good shape. im not too concerned right now though cause my cummins is my daily driver and the v10 is a future project truck and will be completely redone.
