Question about Dodge Pickup

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Dodge 1500 with a 5.2 v8 transmission was rebuilt

About 15,000 miles ago with aproblem of not shifting into 3rd the engine would just keep on tacking but would not shift. It worked fine until now and I am having basicly the same problem again. I was just asking if I change the fluid and filter could this help or am I just throwing my money away. Thanks for any suggestions

The linkage needs to be adjusted. It should be the one from throttle to transmission. They have to be set properly or vehicle will not shift correctly.

I hate to tell you but it sounds like your transmission was rebuilt incorrectly and need to be corrected or tossed and start anew, new transmissions for your truck are roughly $1,600. I'm sorry to hear about your problem.

My 2001 Dodge 1500 ,5.3 liter automatic is shifting roughly and I am having to shift manually by starting in 2nd then drive then neutral then drive to get it to go through the gears. The tranny was rebuilt...


FIRST OFF I DON'T BELIEVE YOU CAN ADJUST THE BADS IN THERE. SECOND, DID THE SHOP YOU GO TO SAY THEY CHANGED THE FILTER AND DIDN'T JUST DO A FLUSH AND FILL. IF SO YOUR OLD FILTER IS STILL IN THERE. NEXT GUESS WOULD BE A BRASS GROMET IN THERE HAS FAILED.

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?

Well no metal shavings should be in the filter if there is there is,something is not right internally in your transmission.When there is larger metal shavings in your tranny filter your tranny is probabley gonna have to be rebuilt or replaced.You can try changing the fluid and filter and see if that helps but nore than likely you will need to change out tranny with a new or rebuilt one.

1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Transmission Shifts Slow


Have you changed the fluid and filter every 2 yrs or 36k miles?
Are you using atf+4 only?
If all the above are a yes then check the throttle cable to the transmission as it should be adjusted to move at exactly the same as the throttle and it they are out of adjustment the transmission will not shift at the correct time and wil eventually cause early failure,also after a rebuild the tranny has to be reflashed by a dealer
