SOURCE: transmission

If the transmission is the 3 speed auto,just Dexron 2 or 3.If it's the 4 speed overdrive trans,it should use Mopar fluid(buy at the dealer) that is highly friction modified,or use Dexron 2 or 3 and LubeGard highly friction modified fluid supplement.The worst that can happen if these fluids aren't used,is harsh shifting,sometimes upshift shudder,and downshift bumps.These symptoms really don't damage anything,but are extremely annoying.

SOURCE: Steering gear fluid capacity and type of manual trasmission fluid?

Hello Dave,
I own a 1988 Ram 50 5-Standard and will go off my own experiences to answer this question.
I use a synthetic 80W transmission fluid.
If you know what is/was already in there; my recommendation is not to change the grade of oil in the transmission unless it is necessary because of driving conditions or vechicle requirements (i.e. towing/hauling/efficiency).
Anyway the Ram 50 Manual 4 & 5 Speed transmissions take a range of fluid grades from 70W-90W. You can use this in both conventional and synthetic oils.

For the power steering, universal power steering fluid works the best, and I honestly don't know the exact amount to put in Ram 50, but may I suggest you purchase ~20oz. Fill it half with half the bottle, then check the dipstick, then put in half of that half-bottle (a quarter of the bottle in), check, and repeat until you get it to the appropriate level.

SOURCE: dont know if i should check transmission fluid with truck running

if its an automatic pull the dip stick out and it should be stamped on the stick. it will most likely be in park on level ground at operating tempature. if its a manual then while its level pull the fill plug out of the side of the trans it will be about half way up or so. the fluid should be at about the level of the fill hole on the side.

When the car shifts from first to second it jerks


Based on the information that has been provided, the first thing I would check would be your transmission fluid level. You need to check your automotive manual to determine the type of transmission fluid to be used, and how to determine if it is low. Many cars have a dip stick towards the back of the motor. My dodge truck has a dip stick with a yellow handle. The dip stick will have a safe mark on it. Most cars have to be running when you check the fluid level. The engine and transmission need to be warm. Some Dodge transmissions need to be in neutral when the fluid level is checked.

The only thing I can say for sure is that you need to consult your manual for how to check the fluid level.

If the fluid level checks out then the transmission will have to be serviced by a shop. It could be hardware failure, or as simple as a clogged transmission filter.

I am have problem with my 2004 Dodge Durango straining to shift out of first gear.


Unfortunately automatic transmissions in Dodge trucks are notorious for breaking down. First thing I would try is to change the transmission filter and fluid quite often if the filter is clogged it will cause shifting problems, when you do this you will also need to replace the gasket on the transmission pan. Before doing the job check your owners manual for the proper type of transmission fluid, if you use the wrong type your transmission will not function properly. If this does not fix your problem you will most likely have to either rebuild your current tranny or have a new one installed.

My owner's manual specified an automatic transmission fluid type for my power steering. Is this an error?


No, it's usual for power steering fluid to be the same as transmission fluid. they both are hydraulic type fluid with similar system requirements.

good luck

no drain plug, no car or truck has had a drain plug for decades, reason? they want the filter changed with the fluid, so they make you pull the trans pan to drain the fluid, one very messy job.
