Default Tranny problems and questions.

I just baught my ram a few months ago with 98,000 miles. It ran great and tranny worked fine. Well it now has 107,500 miles and tranny is not doin so good. It is not slipping rather than just kicking into neutral. And then when it does grab a gear it will not shift from it. Dunno what it would be. I changes the fluid and filter and flushed but no difference. Also if anyone knows what kinda cash would i be looking at to put a manual in it?

Have you had the codes checked? Converting to a stick will not be fun.

I have not had anything checked yet. I work on the road as a construction worker. The tranny went out on me and i had to leave my baby at the hotel we were staying at so we could move to a new job. Next weekend me and my dad are gonna take his truck and trailer to go get it. At home i have a cousin that owns a tranny shop. I was just wondering if anyone had had that problem before. I was told by a coworker that it is prolly something simple. He also said the same about putting a standard in it u did. But it just might be worth it just for the reliability over an automatic. I hate automatics. They take all the fun out of driving. Lol

I found this company calle high impact. They sell a full kit to converte from auto to manuall with the nv4500 5speed. I called and got a quote. The kit cost 3500. The only thing it does not come with is the clutch pedal assy. Have anyone ever herd of them. Is that to much to pay for a kit? http://www.high-impact.net/nv4500.htm
