the cheapest fix is finding the right cause of your problem. fluid additives "might" buy you extra milage, but they do not fix the problem and give you a false sense the problem is repaired. kits such as shift improvers, wont repair the problem either if the kit doesnt supply you with the right replacement parts. you are not assured the problem will be repaired even if you spend the cash and the time installing a complete master rebuild kit. forking out $250 or more for a kit without knowing where the problem lies is dumb. so, again the cheapest fix is to understand what caused the problem and replace/repair the components involved. first you should copy the serial number for your trans. you have a gen 2 ram which model years are '94-'01. (i own a '97 too) the serial number found on a stamp pad will positively id what you have. factory stock trans for your truck should be the 46re which is in design the torqueflite 727 only your trans has overdrive. log on to http://genosgarage.com from there type in '97 ram tsb's (tech service bulletins) genos is a site specific to rams both diesel and gas. there you will find alot of helpful information on repair/tech tips and tsb's. i do not recall the tsb number, but keep searching you will find it. the tsb i think may pertain to your problem is a faulty valve body. it will list the signs of the problem and show you the proper repair. you may also consider loose trans bands particularly your reverse band. periodically, these bands need adjusting because of normal wear. you will need a torque wrench that is graduated in inch pounds as well as a t-40 internal socket. purchase a chiltons/haynes manual specific to your ram and it will show the proper way to adjust both bands. you must follow the guidelines to a t because proper adjustment is critical. two final considerations are checking for a plugged trans cooler line., and checking for trans fluid leaks esp around where the dipstick enters the trans. check for proper level and condition of the fluid. i hope this helps.
