  1. No overdrive in Freezing weather 95 2500 v10

    V10 Specific Topics
    Any input would be appreciated Last winter the temperature dropped below zero and my truck would not shift into overdrive. The Ram left me with no choice but to face the hundred and sixty five mile drive without ever having overdrive while maintaining a low speed and low RPM. I had to leave...
  2. O/D thumping sound

    5.7L V8 Specific Topics
    I finally sorted out where I was hearing this strange random thumping sound. It appeared to be coming from the back of the truck, but I checked everything - everything was tight, and nothing was swinging. The noise would occur at any speed, over any kind of terrain (smooth or gravel), on the...

  6. No first gear or OD

    5.9L V8 Specific Topics
    Just bought my first dodge last week :smileup:, the truck starts off in what I assume is second gear when you are in drive and also has no overdrive at higher speeds. I know that first gear is good because you can manually select 1 on the shifter and it works like it should; You then have to...
