1997 dodge 1500 ram when driving Rpms shift high than normal after reaching 45 mph every thing normal could it be the transmission or the spark plugs


It wouldnt be the spark plugs.. It would be doing it all the time if you had a mis-fire. It sounds more like your torque convertor going bad, or your shift solenoid.

My shifting is skipping gears in my 1993 dodge ram 250 conversion van. My mechanic doesn't know why. I think it might be something that connects to the transmission. donna_rdly@yahoo.com


First thing you will need to do is change the transmission fluid and filter. You may have metal shavings inside your transmission pan blocking the filter kit and this would cause your vehicle to skip gears. Try installing the new fluid and filter kit first. Since you will have the pan off, replace the A and B shift solenoid if the new filter kit and fluid don't stop your transmission from skipping gears

Replaced front seal on my '97 Dodge Ram 1500, V6


Assembly of converter to trans and then tunit to engine? The torque converter must engage and slide into the front pump. The seal is easily damamaged if not properly fitted.Once the trans is against the engine the converter can be slid forward to bolt the flex plste.There should not be more than approx. 1/4 inch between the converter and trans bell housing if the converter is properly mated to the trans. Good Luck, Ned.

There are many things to consider with an automatic. Check that you have installed the kick down cable and spring correctly. If the kickdown is stuck or the spring is holding it in the wrong direction this will cause your problem. Insure your 8 pin plug is seated properly into into the sillinoid connector. Also check and see if any transmission codes have been set. Hope this helps.

1997 dodge ram 1500 (360) transmission.


My 95 Cummins Dodge had the same problem and adding "Lucas Transmissiion Fix" cured it completely and permanently.

Thier claim is as follows:


Lucas Transmission Fix is a non-solvent formulas that stops slip, hesitation and rough shifting in worn transmissions and completely eliminates most seal leaks. Use in any transmission for preventative maintenance.Use also in light duty manual transmissions to increase shifting ease and transmission life.
Key Benefits
  • Contains no solvents
  • Lowers operating temperatures and stops foaming
  • Can be added to existing fluid without draining any out
  • Effective in an extremely high percentage of cases

97 ram 1500 4wd will just shift out of o.d. pushing the o.d. button has no effect on it but if you turn the truck off then start it again it will shift fine. no other tranny problems.


This is one of the first signs of Dodge transmission failure. Hunting between second and third around 45 MPH is another sign. I would drain some of the transmission fluid, and look for foreign particles is the fluid. If it is as I suspect you should change the filter and the fluid immediately. The particles I am expecting you to find will be aluminum from your torque converter, they are not magnetic and will not show on the dipstick.

1997 Dodge Ram 1500 ( transmission )


I also have a 97 Ram that did the same thing. First thing to do is add a trans cooler and remove the rubber lines at the radiator. If you feel the truck takes off in 2nd gear you need to replace the transducer and governor pressure switch inside the trans pan on the pass side of the valve body.
