Check valve on the return line. I'll check that out. I havent looked yet but I know my truck has an aftermarket tranny cooler mounted. Will it still have the check valve or would that have been deleted?

Default Same issue as Smitty

I have a 97 Ram 1500 4x4 with the 5.9 and 33's and have the same issues that Smitty is talking about. It downshifts constantly on hills (even turning off OD) and when going uphill I can have it floored and it won't get over 60-65 mph without it being floored. The transmission and transfer case have both been rebuilt, magnaflow exhaust, AFE cold air intake, the top end has been cleaned and replaced (injectors, plugs, cap rotor, wires...). I have been thinking about getting the Hypertech Econ programmer to hep out with gas mileage and power.

Forgot to add that I live in Colorado and do a lot of mountain driving.
