Question about 1994 Dodge Ram 3500

1 Answer

Going in and out of overdrive

I have a 1994 dodge 3500 i am having trouble with it (hunting) it will do it under normal driving but not as much or as often as when i am pulling my 5th wheel, the rv is 36ft long so i know it is a load but it use to do fine. going up a hill it will keep losing power more than it ever has and the rpms will go up to 2800 sometimes. i had it tuned up and it runs alot better but it did not solve this problem.

Have them check your injectors i had the same prob with a 2005 f-350 and when i bought the truck brand new they were fine but after 1 year of pulling loads like yours the injectors finally gave out on me.

1994 Dodge Dakota 3.9 V6 dies occasionally, does not shift to OD occasionally (automatic), frequently stumbles while driving. It sat for several years without driving. I have been driving it for three


Replace the gas filter!

That could even explain the failure to shift into Overdrive, as the engine cannot be running lean for the computer to allow it to shift into Overdrive.

Do you drive in overdrive all the time or 3rd/1994 chevy 1/2 ton shortbed/6 cyl


Hi and welcome to FixYa!
It's not wise to drive on overdrive everytime. When you are cruising that's when OD should beused.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1997 dodge ram 3500, it shudders in OD


Hey, I also have a 98 ram with the cummins and what you are talking about is when you are pullin hard in overdrive the trans is working to hard causing the shudder, when this happens back off the throttle and get back on the throttle to allow the trans to downshift. If you dont it will break the overdrive gear. There is nothing wrong with the trans it is just that it is shifting to early and bogging down causing the shudder.
