Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 Club Cab

Open Question

No reverse and late or missing shift from 3rd to overdrive 96 b2500 van

When we first bought the van it was very loud while in reverse.. many dealers said this was a normal sound for that model trans..

fast forward a few years and 70,000 miles..

the trans starts missing its shift from 3rd to 4th not always at first but now all the time. Only fluctuating the throttle can occasionally bring it into the proper gear but this science has not been perfected.

the fluid and filter have been changed regularly by the dealer as has the radiator (the only code to come up was excessive tranny temp) that code went away but slipping problem stayed) they only want to rebuild the tranny and not say why it acts this way.

unrelated to the servicing but now a constant problem is reverse will work perfect only the very first start of the day no matter how long you let it "cool" it seems to like a 24 hr rest. After its first start it may go into reverse with a little high rev coaxing of 1 - 10 min with a begrudging SLAM. otherwise it does nothing or may quietly slip into reverse when backing down a hill.

you may be feeling the torque convertor locking and unlocking....if you feel this on grade it may be normal. there is also the possibility that the brake switch may be acting up and causing it

FYI, My 99' just had a rebuild put in it $2000. Lent it to family, and even before they left I was worried that mileage etc, was just about time for it to go. I had no warning signs, just something in the back of my mind said "anytime now". They made it to their destination 3 or 4 hours away, no problem all the way,then next morning running into town for groceries, spit, sputter clank, bang, done ! Piece came right out through the top of the transmission casing , big hole & a gear laying on top of the casing. Needless to say, they felt bad, but I just had a premonition it was time. That's why when those things act up, don't play around, get it diagnosed a.s.a.p. Trying to get through the week, can cost you big time. Here's to hoping yours is an easy, inexpensive fix.

SOURCE: tranny stoped working no movement in any gears.

I know you don't want to hear this but the forward clutch pack has failed, that is either due to wear or a loose of hydraulic fluid pressure inside the trans, pull the pan and look for debris in the pan, if that is only normal small amounts of black goop then the problem is a failed seal in the pressure passages, in any case the trans has to come apart to fix it, so an overhaul will be required. this trans is prone to failure around 100,000 miles. my experience 40 years as an automotive tech, master certified automatic trans technician.

P0700 - Transmission Control System Malfunction.
The code basically what that means is that a malfunction has been detected in the transmission and associated components. There is good news and bad news. The good news is it might be covered under warranty. You didn't say if your vehicle is still under warranty, be aware that you may still have warranty coverage on this since your car is just 3 years old. The bad news is that the P0700 code really means that there are transmission-specific codes that you can't access with a regular code reader. There is a part called a TCM - transmission control module that works in a similar way to your PCM. The TCM handles the transmission electrical "stuff" and it stores further transmission codes.

If you want to pursue the issue yourself, you'll need to get your hands on a higher end code reader, or take it to the dealer or a transmission shop to get the actual transmission trouble codes read. Personally we recommend you get a shop to read those codes for you. The other codes are communication codes, we recommend you clear those codes after you fix the P0700 code and see if they come back, they could be related to the "main" transmission issue. The other good news is the fix for this may just be a software update that the dealer can do.


P1728 - Transmission Slip Error
THis code indicates that the transmission is slipping. When the computer that controls the transmission detects a fault code like P1728, it will put the transmission into a "limp" mode. When the code is cleared and the transmission will function properly until the slippage occurs again. To resolve this problem, you will need to get your transmission overhauled.

Hope help with this.

Okay the flashing overdrive light is a trouble code and you need to have pcm (powertrain control module) codes read to know what they are. This is a common problem with these trucks but not always same cause, sometimes it is a vehicle speed sensor and sometimes it is a faulty torque converter clutch solenoid. Either way most eveyone agrees it needs to go to a ford dealer to be diagnosed correctly

You most likely have a broken sunshell inside the transmission. They tend to go out when the transmission is shifted to drive when while still rolling in reverse.
