Hard time shifting, bubbles in oil, trans not


noy sure about the hard time sifting but sounds like a vacum hose some from trans to engine may have a split in it which causes long gear change or none at all, oil brown and stinky change it its too old you should change your oil every 10 thousand

Air bubbles in trans fluid


If you have too much fluid it can lead to foaming. I would check that first.

1996 dodge ram 2500 auto transmission not shifting properly


Well, first do the service. Pull the pan down and look for metal shavings. If there is metal shavings your in for a transmission. If not, you may have a problem with one of the transmissions shift solenoids located near the valve body.
P.S. The Duramax has the Allison 1000 transmission not the dodge cummins and they are one of the best trannys on the market.

PICKUP DOWN SHIFTS WHEN ACCELERATED


Attach a diagnostic computer to the leads on your engine.
Check the codes to confirm that the onboard computer is choosing to shift under the correct conditions.

Or, get your local Dodge dealer (before they go bankrupt) to run the computer-diagnosis.

1996 Dodge Ram Pickup Automatic requires shifting in order to run


It sounds like when you had the trans service don't he didn't do something right. He might have put the wrong fluid in. Does the trans make noise? Sounds like the trans is going in your truck.
