Check fluid level first. See if fluid smells "burnt". The signs are the tranny is dying. Don't go far in this vehicle until you've taken it to a shop you trust. They will pull the drain pan and inspect. Next sign of death will be a whining in the transmission as the suction strainer for the pump becomes clogged with the clutch material. Good Luck.

04 ram will not shift past 35 mph


it may not be a transmission problem. have you checked for fault codes to make sure it is not in limp mode? limp mode keeps vehicle from accelerating properly because the ECM has put the system at a limited setting to keep the engine running but not to its full potential.

Air bubbles in trans fluid


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

My 97 dogde ram dose not like to shift into 3rd gear unless i take my foot off the gas. i was told I needed to change both solenoids. can I do this myself? Is this the problem?


Your description does not sound like solenoid issue.

I need to know what your vehicle uses for throttle position indication to the trans. IS there a rod from throttle body area to the trans? If so, adjust that to have slightly less effect.

If not, look for vacuum leaks or cracked hoses to trans...

1999 DODG 3500 AUTO TRANS SHIFTS TO 2ND WITH A LITTLE HELP


I have a 1999 Ram B 1500 Van, auto transmission, 5.9 L engine.
Same problem, trans hesitates in 2-3 upshift, sometimes 1-2
to 2-3 upshift. Posts trouble code P1756 - Transmission Govenor pressure too low at below 15 to 20 Psi. Transmission pump shot or valve body leak stops trans from reaching proper pressure to shift, which is minimum 15 Psi.
Either trans is leaking in valve body, valve is stuck, shift solenoid on valve body is sticking, or pump is shot.
