1988 Dodge Ram 50 Automatic shifts into park reverse and neutral. But physically won't go into drive gears.

Disconnect shift cable from transmission linkage and try to manually put transmission in drive gear ( make sure wheels chocked/park brake on ). If transmission goes into drive gear, suspect a shift cable or shifter assembly problem. If you can't manually shift into drive gear by hand with cable disconnected, suspect internal transmission/shift linkage issue

I have a 2003 dodge ram 1500 quad cab 4.7 litter my problem is that the trany wont go into gear i just changed the filter and fluid and drive line it worked fine when i was done i flew out of town leaving...

Can you physically move the gear selector? Have you checked the fluid level? And lastly, if it's a 4WD, have you made sure your friend didn't bump the transfer case into neutral?

One thing of note. I know that if you don't get the filter in there just right, it can fall out and your tranny loses suction, thus no fluid flow.

Hello.. Before being able to diagnosis the problem the info that is stored in the computer about the check engine light needs to scanned and posted here. After that I am sure someone can put you in the right direction.

Dodge ram 1500 5.9 1999 Clank at the start or reverse or drive.

Sounds more like a universal joint. Should be a inexpensive fix have it checked soon or you will need to add the price of a tow to the repair bill. part should not be over $30 each x 2 labor should not be much more than an hour.
