Are you sure the TV ( trans shift cable at the throttle valve) cable is correctly adjusted?? Without line pressure readings, I can only guess that the D3/Part throttle check ball is missing, if it is a trans problem
If the TV is correct, I am assuming that the TV cable is pulled tight at WOT.
Did you check the throttle (ACCEL) cable to be sure that the carb goes wide open when your accel pedal is on the floor?? This must be done with someone in the car and a second person looking at the carb. Without doing this, you do not know if you have WOT. Without WOT, the trans will not de-tent and shift down.

SOURCE: tranny high shifting

There is a linkage on the Loadflight A-500 transmission that travels from the throttle linkage to a lever on the transmission. Proper adjustment of this linkage controls the shift schedule of the transmission with respect to engine throttle position. This would be the most likely place to start after ensuring that your fluid level is correct.

SOURCE: will not idle at proper rpm

Try squeezing the fleixible fuel line before it gets into the fuel rail with the appropriate tool and see if the RPMs drop if they do either the pressure relief valve has failed or the fuel return line is blocked.Obviously you dont completely squeeze the line shut but only that you are taking some of the pressure out of the fuel rail allow enough fuel through to keep vehicle running.Its a cheap way to eliminate a potential cause for your problem.Excess pressure could be over powering the injectors.Are the injectors in a good servicable condition?

SOURCE: Won't shift from 2nd gear to drive unless i run

This trans has a safety built in to default to second gear if the computer sees any kind of problem. Have it scanned. It can be an input or out put speed sensor, or even a temp sensor on the engine. If there are codes that say ratio error, take it back to who rebuilt it and hope they will take care of you. I use to give a major discount if they were not too far out of warranty.

Testimonial: "the information i recieved was what i was thinking it might be,either a speed sensor or a related computer problem Thanks for your input."

SOURCE: Hi, had tranny rebuilt last

YEP CHECK THROTTLE CABLE ADJUSTMENT AND MANUAL LINK VALVE NOT INSTALL CORRECTLY COULD ALSO BE BINDING BROKEN. REPLACE TRANSMISSION SEE IF HELPS. TRANSMISSION USE MORE FLUID PRESSURE IN REVERSE.AFTER REBUILT SO MANY MILES I CHANGE TRANSMISSION FILTER COULD BE STOPPED UP.FELT IN FILTERS WILL STOP UP.IF ALL IS GOOD TRANSMISSION OIL PUMP PRESSURE COULD BE TOO LOW.OIL PUMP COULD BE FAULTY.NEED TO DO A TRANSMISSION FLUID PRESSURE TEST.MAKE SURE OIL PUMP GOOD.IF PUMP IS GOOD. YOU NEED TO ASK THE MECHANIC DID THE OVER HAUL WHAT PARTS DID HE REPLACED. BECAUSE NO REVERSE COULD BE FAULTY REVERSE SERVO SEAL. WELL DID NOT NAME WHAT TYPE MODEL VECHICLE AND THE YEAR OF VECHICLE FAULTY REVERSE BAND WILL CAUSE NO REVERSE.I WOULD NAME A LOT OF OTHER PARTS BUT TRANSMISSION HAS BEEN REBUILT.IF TRANSMISSION BEEN REBUILT.THE FORWARD, DIRECT AND INPUT CLUTCH ALSO REVERSE INPUT CLUTCH HOUSING SHOULD HAVE NEW CLUTCH PLATES AND NEW PISTONS SEALS.

I have a 1991 stock dodge W150 4wd truck with a 4 speed, I need to know what are the shift points? !st seems like a granny


I have an identical truck, 1991 Ram W150 with a 318 4speed bull low. They're called a bull low (bo low, granny four speed, farmers 4-spd) because theyre really only built for towing heavy loads, theyre a farm tractor transmission. You should never use first unless your towing a load, start in 2nd. I dont rev it too high when I shift mine. Best tranny for offroading by far, it really delivers the torque to crawl up tricky paths.

Why does it shift so high in 1 and 2 goes in to 3 but wont go in to overdrive


I would suggest replacing the transmission. This is a very common problem that occurs in Dodge and Chrysler especially in the caravan and 1500 trucks. I was informed by a Transmission Tech friend of mine that cheap internal parts are to blame. When he installs rebuilt mopar tranny like this, he actually upgrades the rebuilt tranny with better quality parts and that usually extends the life from 70k miles to about 150k miles. I would guess you have 65k miles or so on your truck by the sound of it. Am I close?
