8 speed

  1. Will the 5th gen HD's get an 8 speed?

    Automotive Industry News and Dodge Press Releases
    I've said before that if they can build one to live behind the Hellcat and Demon they can build an 8 speed that will hold up to HD truck use-at least behind a Hemi but I think behind a Cummins too. Well, it looks like ZF is getting ready to release their "Powerline" (aka 8AP) transmissions...

    5.7L (345 cu in) HEMI V8 Specific Topics
    Has anyone done a service on the 8spd Transmission that comes with the Ram?? I understand there isn't a need for it to be serviced (according to the owners manual), but mine shifts out of gear at idle (it doesn't happen often, but it happens enough to annoy me). I want to change the fluid, to...
  3. 2016 RAM 1500 8 Speed Hard Downshifts

    5.7L (345 cu in) HEMI V8 Specific Topics
    Hey, I have a 2016 Ram w/ the 8 speed trans the truck has only 18,000km, I brought it back to the dealer 2 weeks ago for hard 3-2, and 2-1 downshifts which caused the truck to jerk when slowing down. They "updated the software" the trans shifted smooth for a day and then the hard downshifts...

    LD RAM - General Discussion
    Got to work this morning and apparently didn't get the word that we had all been given the day off today. Had a little bit to do then came home earlier today, so I figured I could get some stuff done that I need to. -Colt needs washed, the wife drove her through some mud so it looks a little...
  5. 8HP70 Transmission Pan

    Mopar Online Parts - Dodge Ram Accessories!
    I am getting ready to change my transmission fluid in the next 5,000 miles or so-it is the 8HP70. I want to go with the OEM pan and wanted to know if you had it and what you sell it for, and perhaps if there's a member discount. I believe the part number is: 68261170AA Also, does this include...
  6. ZF8HP70 Transmission Service

    5.7L (345 cu in) HEMI V8 Specific Topics
    Has anyone done a Fluid and Filter service for one of these in the 2014 and up models? If so did you use the ZF lifeguard fluid or something different that is approved? ZF released a bulletin for service to be done at 50,000-75,000. Owners manual says filled for life. Service manual shows...
  7. 2014 1500 bouncing off rev limiter before shifting

    2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    I tried searching for this issue but didn't see anything. I have a 4x4 CC with the 3.6L/8 Speed. Basically, if I floor it from a roll where it catches first gear, it will bounce off of the rev limiter before it shifts. The truck will nose dive, shift, then resume acceleration. If I floor it...

  9. 8 Speed Shifting A Little Too Quickly???

    2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    Now bear in mind, all I've owned prior to my 2014 Ram 1500 was an '01 chevy cavalier, which had a whopping four speed automatic transmission, so I'm no authority on this topic. However, I notice when I'm moderately accelerating, especially in heavy stop-start traffic, my truck shifts up a gear...
  10. Looking for 8 speed transmission service advice

    2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    I bought a 2014 RAM 1500 Sport Crew Cab a few weeks ago. Downshifts were harsh at first, but got better at around 700 miles. After that downshifts got better, but were still pretty annoying. Far from "smooth as glass" as many owners on these forums report. I took it in for service last week...
  11. 8 speed highway mileage in cold weather- 3.92 axle

    2013 Dodge Ram Forum
    I am curious to know what gas mileage you guys are getting with 8 speed 3.92 rear end when the temperatures reach -20°C considering flat lands and minimal wind effect at around 70 mph. I am getting around 14 to 15mpg using winter gas under aforementioned conditions. Thanks for your input.

    2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    Just got home from a long day of driving 1200 km to pick up my new truck (pics will be posted soon I promise!) from Airdrie Chrysler Dodge Jeep just North of Calgary AB. I AM SUPER PUMPED ABOUT THIS TRUCK!!!!!!! The service I received from Sean @ the dealership was great and I won't...
  13. 2014 Power Wagon with 4.10 gears=Less torque at wheels than '13 model or older

    2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    By performing a simple calculation, I've discovered that the 2014 Power Wagon, although with a more powerful engine, will still have less torque at the wheels compared to a '13 model or older. The reason it will have less torque is that it is losing torque multiplication from the 4.10 axle...

    2013 Dodge Ram Forum
    A buddy of mine showed up at my place with a '13 hemi 8 speed a few weeks ago.. haven't been able to stop thinking about it, so i made an irrational decision and swapped up my '11 SXT for a '13 sport qc 8 speed... and i couldn't be happier! hah. Went through an awesome dealership and...

    2013 Dodge Ram Forum
    Wondering if anyone has any information on when the 8 speed will be available for the 2wd hemi. I found this article about mpg for the 2wd hemi and thought maybe it was coming available. http://m.***************/features/news/2013/163_news130503_2013_ram_1500_rwd_v_8_mpg/index.html
