  1. Column Shifter Unpredictable

    3.9L V6 Specifc Topics
    Hello, this morning I went to work everything was working well, until when I arrived and tried to put my truck in park. It would slide all the way to reverse and that's the farthest I could go. So I left it in neutral ( with the parking brake of course). When I went home and parked at home I...

    I have a 2002 Ram 1500 4x4 4.7. The check engine light came on. When I tried to get the code, it seems that my obd plugin has no power. I located the fuse, which is not blown (#19 ecm/skm). I checked the wires that connect to obd, none broken or frayed. This is frustrating me as I have been...

    5.9L V8 Specific Topics
    I've got a 1997 Ram 2500 with the 5.9 L in it that won't shift to overdrive when it gets cold. -20 seems to be the cutoff point. Everything works fine if it is warmer. I'm new to the forums so hope I did this in the correct thread.

    2010 Dodge Ram Forum
    This rig has the automatic transmission. There's a sporadic transmission slippage problem. The engine sometime revs up for no apparent reason whether accelerating or coasting. When this happens, kicking down on the accelerator has no effect whatsoever. The condition comes and goes, no...

    5.9L V8 Specific Topics
    I need to replace the tranny on my rig or repair/overhaul it. I was wondering what the general concensus is for these units? Have a trusted shop overhaul it and add maybe a Banks TC? Or buy a remanufactured unit? Or is there an option of sliding in a 5-6 speed auto unit without much fuss...

    2011 Dodge Ram Forum
    Second time I took the Truck in for a check engine light. The light comes on secondary to starting the truck in the morning after putting it in reverse. The transmission hesitates to the extent that I put it back into park. Light comes on when I get it back into gear. Dealer said that once...

    Has anyone else noticed a loss of rpm between 1st and 2nd while accelerating? (Like I am manually shifting it) It's like I let off the pedal between gears and the engine has to spool up again once second gear hits. Okay, maybe not quite that dramatic, but it's a noticeable hit. Normally the...

    5.9L V8 Specific Topics
    Just bought a 95 5.9 2wd auto, the guy said the pump is going out of the tranny. It shifts great for a mile or so then as the fliud gets warm it loses all gears.
