Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck 2WD
I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500. for a while now the engine ran fine while driving but stalled out some of the time while idling. The transmission's two larger internal pumps were replaced about two years ago and for the past year periodically the tranny doesn't want to shift into overdrive. now it will not shift into overdrive. Since the tranny got worse the car stalls out all the time... I'm wondering if the two are related, and if so what could be causing it? if a vaccume line could be the problem, where should look?
I just did a 97 with same problems except mine was whinning in gear. I replaced torque convertor, front pump, gov pressure sensor, gov pressure solenoid,and filter. Parts came to 530 bucks. Truck is running good now. Im on 1st week of running with no problems.

I know this probably isn't what you wanted to hear, but I'm talking from experience so here we go. Get a dealer or someone you trust to be compotent in this field and have them throw a scan tool on your truck. It will point everyone in the right direction, and may save you lots of money in the long run. As you know, transmission work isn't cheap, but neither is replacing one because it was let go & ignored too long. yes it may be 2 or more, different problems, or just one, or even a possible dirty or corroded connection somewhere, but at least find out for sure. Telling you exactly what's wrong doesn't mean you have to commit to an immediate repair, and spending $100 now may save you $1000's later.
