Have an 04 Ram, single cab, V6, with the 5spd.
Truck runs fine, and shifts fine on the move. But, when at a light, or from a stop, the truck is hard to shift into 1st or reverse. Almost feels like something is blocking it in the slot, like something isn't lined up. I can force it through, but it doesn't feel right.
At a stop, I can shift it into other gears fine, then out and into 1st, and then it goes smoothly.
So, some cliff notes: shifts fine when moving. At a stop, can shift into other gears fine, then once that initial shift is made, it goes into 1st or reverse fine. Feels like something isn't lined up.
I'm confused by the whole thing, and haven't found anybody that could shed some light. Figure someone here has had to of had a similar problem.
