Question about Dodge Ram 1500

Open Question

2000 dodge ram 4x4 1500 5.9 hesitates to shift into second gear and the speedometer doesnt function till it shifts into second gear.

After shifting into second gear, the trans and speedometer seem fine. While decelerating back down to first, the speedometer seems to hang up until i am almost totally stopped, then the needle drops suddenly.

SOURCE: engine light

on the side of the transmission is a black box with wire plugs check those first. unplug them clean them and reinsert and if the problem doesn't go away u will need a full shop diagnostic on it. they have multiple issues that it could be on that year range gm SUV

SOURCE: 1996 Dodge Ram Transmission shifting problem

I had the same problem with my 96 Ram 1500. I thought I was going to have to pull it out and get it rebuilt or just replace it. That was at 134,000Km it's now got 210,000 and shifting like a dream. What I did to solve the problem was this, as follows:
1. No lucas transmission Fix makes things worse.
2. Get your self a new transmission filter and gasket
3. Grab Gunk transmission medic 12oz
4. Grab 7 Liters of Valvoline ATF+4 transmission fluid (Made for chrysler transmissions)
5. Drop the trans pan and drain all the oil, clean pan and magnet
6. start truck for 5 seconds and the pump will pour out another 1 liter
7. re-install filter, gasket and pan, then add your Valvoline ATF+4
8. Add, the valvoline, transmission medic and make sure you have the right level of fluid

That solved my transmission problems, instantly it was shifting better, I no longer had to let off the gas to make it shift. Now if you have large pieces of metal on the magnet, and it's totally covered in filings, you might want to consider rebuilding the trans. My magnet had usual clutch.         

Anyhow good luck, let me know if it did the trick for you.

SOURCE: MY TRANS WONT SHIFT INTO THIRD GEAR UNTIL IM DOING 45 MPH

Most likely your shift cable (from the selector to the transmission) is worn, maybe needs lubrication. Mine had a similiar problem, but had to shift it into neutral and back up to get it in reverse. A new shift cable solved the problem.

SOURCE: i have a 1997 dodge

Sounds as though the valve body in the trans is stuck.I would use a additive called LUBE GUARD .You can find this at NAPA auto parts.If it doesn`t work,the trans will need to be repaired by a trans man.The additive will un~ stick the valve body,and treat the metal in he trans.It would be a good idea to change the trans fluid,and filter.And add the additive then.I hope this helps,it will work in about 5 miles or so if the additive is going to fix it.If this is at all helpful,please let us know.thank you.

Dash problem. You can change the speedo motor. Done to many. From then till today. Old ones are screw in, new ones are soldered.

Where is the speed sensor located on Dodge Ram 2000?


Chrysler products have a limp mode that will not shift past second gear when the computer senses a transmission problem. A failed speedometer will do it.
