Exclamation Bang In Reverse Noise And Hard Shift

I hope since I am new I will get a better response than the last gentleman that Had this same problem a few months back. I own a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 1500 Slt Big Horn 5.7 hemi. 43,000 miles The reason i got the truck is so I could tell everyone MOPAR OR NO CAR. I am getting a noise (other than the eletric motor shifting) when I take my truck out of park and put it in reverse and it shifts really hard. Going down the road no problem and driving in the city start and stop the same runs great. 4x4 works fine the only thing is when I shift from park to reverse or pass reverse to drive there is a small pause before it goes in to gear and it goes in really hard. I will move the shifter back and forth a few times and it will improve some times but not always. Please Help with info. Thanks

Have you owned the truck since it was new? If you have, when was the last time the trans was serviced? How many miles has it got? What color is the trans fluid? How does it smell?

How about stopping by the Newbie area and introducing yourself.

No got the truck used at 39,000. The fluid looks to be no more than maybe 10,000 miles old and smells sweet like out the bottle

With those kind of miles the fluid should still be in good shape, BUT, it should not smell brand new either. Does that make any sense?

If you're not real comfortable with working on transmissions, I'd suggest a stop by Aamco or the dealer. Did you get a warranty when you bought it?

Do you let the truck idle down before you shift it in to reverse or any other gear for that matter? My 07 dose the same thing unless i let it idle down a bit first i'll bet thats the problem let it idle down to about 800 rpms then shift it and tell us what it dose

My truck idles around 600-700 and it does not matter if it is that low it still does it and the fluid shows some wear but it not like it has never been changed since it was new. It still has a sweet smell and is red in color. I have a 150,000 mile warranty and can take it in any time but just trying to get a idea if I am not the only one with this problem and what it may be. I even allow time to let the shift motor fully put the trans in gear before letting off the brake. It also does not matter if the truck is already hot or not. Fluid level is in between the marks also.

It definitely should not be banging into any gear. Thanks for answering my questions.

This, you would be surprised how much even minor play in a joint can bang around.
