Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
I have a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 with a 360, and the transmission which has been rebuilt twice in the past 3 years. The first problem was it wouldnt shift at all so i paid $800 to rebuild(i removed and reinstalled) then a few months later reverse went out so i paid $1200 to have it rebuilt(better shop, they did all the work), now 2 yrs later it is slow to shift. It starts out good in first then i have to let off and it will shift to second, but then when i let off agian it usually takes 30 sec of feathering gas to get it into 3rd and then it shifts to o.d. perfect......and when at highway speeds 40-100 if i push the gas to the floor it will shift straight to 2nd and redline if i'm going 75 or so and wont shift out till i let off......please any info you might have is much appriciated.....If you have any questions or answers my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org thank you.
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
