I have the same symptom but it occurred after I let my truck overheat this winter. I guess it messed something up. Im curious, why do the use the same tranny in the 1/2 ton and the 3/4 ton? Something about that makes me think its not near the quality as the 68RFE. Am I wrong?

Not when it comes to this. You sit there and smugly stereotype all dealerships so don't act surprised when a dealership employee isn't inclined to help someone looking to score advice.

Is it idling at somewhat higher RPM's? Mine was doing something somewhat similar. I mainly noticed it in reverse though. When I would start the truck up and put it in reverse almost immediately, it would lurch backwards, and the RPM's would drop and it would almost die. And then it'd rev back up and be fine. It was idling around 1400, and would constantly rev up and down between 800-1400 while sitting. Then it started shifting really roughly, and the check engine light came on. Got code P0121, threw a new Throttle Positioning Sensor in there, and no problems whatsoever.

I haven't noticed any idling issues. My truck typically idles around 600-700rpm. I'll pay attention to it. I have had issues with the truck stalling out shortly after starting - usually when I have my first stop of the morning - at a stop sign near my house. I took the throttle body off and cleaned it up and it's not done it since.

Have you serviced the trans before? Maybe at about 35-40k, if not it u need to anyway! Its not to difficult to do it yourself if you have any skills! If you talk to the service manager about your prob. he should want to help you, thats his job. My 08 mega has done this a few times with no mil lamp and as you said but its been about a half a year since. When i worked at a gm dealer i was not a stealer either, but did alway recomend preventative maint. Good luck!

I did have the transmission professionally serviced at 43k. It's not got another 30K on it. I'm pretty handy but have never removed a transmission pan - though it looks relatively easy to get to - just always nervous that I'll not be able to get a good seal on the gasket and mess something up....

Default Just found this online

The customer may experience an initial delayed shift engagement following an extended off (not running) period of time, generally after being parked overnight. The initial shift engagement may feel like a delay or slip when a transmission gear (reverse or drive) is first selected after engine start.




The customer may not experience the delayed shift engagement until after the transmission has been serviced, where the cooler return filter was replaced. The condition is not detrimental to the transmission, but may cause concern with the customer.

The repair will require one Mopar P/N 04799662 cooler return filter.
Applicable Vehicles
• 2000 - 2004 (AN) Dakota
• 2002 - 2006 (KJ) Liberty
• 2000 - 2003 (DN) Durango
• 1999 - 2004 (WJ/WG) Grand Cherokee
• 2003 - 2006 (DR) Ram Truck
• 2005 - 2006 (WK/WH) Grand Cherokee
• 2004 - 2006 (HB) Durango
• 2006 (XK) Commander
Repair Procedure
(Review cooler filter replacement and safety procedures in the ALLDATA system before beginning.)
The above condition may be caused by a suspect cooler return filter — part number of 04799662AB. This "AB" suffix/level filter may allow transmission fluid to drain back out of the torque converter. The drain back condition may occur over a period time when the engine (and transmission) is not running. With less fluid in the torque converter, a delay in gear engagement may occur at engine start up while the torque converter fills to its proper fluid level.
All 04799662AB cooler return filters with the "AB" suffix are suspect. The above condition may be corrected by replacing a suspect "AB" filter with a new cooler return filter whose part number is 04799662 (with no suffix or with a suffix that is other than the "AB" level).
Note: A replacement 04799662 cooler return filter may come packaged with a separate threaded adapter stud. The threaded adapter stud is used to attach the cooler return filter to the transmission. Inspect the stud and note end without threads. Install the stud end without the threads into the cooler return filter and tighten the stud-to-filter connection to 18.6 Nm (165 in. lbs.). Once the threaded adapter stud has been installed to the cooler return filter, install the assembled cooler return filter to the transmission and tighten the filter to 14.1 Nm (125 in. lbs.)

Diagnosis:

1. Turn the ignition to the “OFF” position.

2. Raise the vehicle on a suitable lift.

3. Inspect for the transmission build date (Julian date) (Fig. 1). The transmission build date can be determined by inspection of the 20 digit transmission identification number (DDDYxxxxxPpartnumber). The transmission identification number is stamped on the left side (driver side) of the transmission oil pan flange. The first four (4) digits of the transmission identification number are the transmission build date, in Julian date format. An example of a transmission identification number would be:

101510492P52119684AA. The first three digits ( 101 ) of the identification number equal the day of the year, in this case 101 equals April 11. The fourth digit ( 5 ) of the identification number equals the calendar year, in this case 5 equals 2005. So 1015 equals April 11, 2005.

4. Determine if the vehicle's transmission was built on or between one of the two sets of Julian date build ranges listed below:
a. Julian date 0425 (February 11, 2005) to Julian date 0455 (February 15, 2005). 0425 to 0455.
b. Julian date 1015 (April 11, 2005) to Julian date 2345 (August 22, 2005). 1015 to 2345.

5. If the vehicle has the above condition, and if the transmission Julian build date is on or between the range of dates listed above, perform the Repair Procedure.

NOTE: DO NOT use a replacement cooler return filter with a part number of 04799662AB. This filter is suspect of causing the above condition. The filter part number is stenciled on the side of the filter case.

Parts Required:

1 P/N 04799662 Filter, Cooler Return
4 P/N 05013457AA Fluid, Automatic Transmission, MS-9602 ATF+4, Quart
1 P/N 05010884AA Mopar ATF-RTV

Repair Procedure:

NOTE: All cooler return filters with the “AB” suffix (04799662AB) are suspect. The above condition may be corrected by replacing a suspect “AB” filter with a new cooler return filter whose part number is 04799662 (with no suffix or with a suffix that is other than the “AB” level).
