You have a trans issue, have the system self tested for codes, Kragen auto and others do this for free. Get back to me with the trouble codes.

1996 dodge ram 5.2 auto 318 to shift to 4wd do u put in park or drive and can you shift to and from 4wd on the fly


Need to know what transfer case it has. Most t-cases have synchronized gearing...meaning shift on the fly. A quick test is drive at less than 5 mph, and shift, no gear clash means you have synchros. ****This is only from 2wd to 4 high. 4 low you MUST be stopped(doesn't matter what gear its in).****

How do I turn 4wd on?


    • 1 Start your Dodge truck's engine.
    • 2 Turn the electronic transfer case from "2WD" to "4WD Lock" to engage the high range 4WD, if the dodge truck is equipped with an electronic transfer case; otherwise, shift the transfer case lever from "2H" to "4H." The electronic transfer case is located on the instrument panel and is marked with "2WD," "4WD Lock" and 4WD Low." The lever-equipped transfer case is located to the right of your leg and is marked with "2H," "4H" and "4L."
    • 3 Shift the transmission into "Neutral" while the vehicle is either stopped or rolling at 2 to 3 mph to begin engaging in the low range 4WD. Turn the electronic transfer case to "4WD Low," if the Dodge truck is equipped with an electronic transfer case; otherwise, shift the transfer case lever from "2H" or "4H" to "4L."
    Tips & Warnings
    • Indicator lights will come on and alert you that your vehicle is in either the high or low range of 4WD.
    • Do not engage in the low range of 4WD drive if the transmission is in gear; you must shift to "Neutral" first.
    • Many Dodge trucks allow you to shift from 2-wheel drive to the high range of 4WD at up to 55 mph--consult your truck's manual to ensure that this is possible. Do not exceed 55 mph while engaged in the high range of 4WD. Do not exceed 25 mph while engaged in the low range of 4WD.
    • Do not engage in 4WD unless you are on slipper or rocky roads.

Transmission only pulls in 1 and reverse not drive ,3,or 2 what is the problem


Sounds like the low one way clutch is bad. The trans will need rebuilt or replaced. After you get some speed in low1 like to 15 mph, shift to low 2, then at 25-28 shift to drive, then at 42-45 shift to overdrive. Will the trans hit all the gears when you do it this way?

Are you sure the trans is in 3rd. Pull the stick into low gear accelerate shift to 2nd about 20 mph shift to 3rd about 35 mph then 4th about 50 mph. This will let me know how to go further with your problem. If you do this proceedure write the results on this Great FixYa Page!

1978 Granada 250 shift points are off


Sounds like you may have accidentally removed the vacuum line to the modulator valve on the back of the transmission. (worst case, the headers may have burned through the hose, but either way, this is more than likely the problem.
Hope this helps
Chris.
