Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I own a 1998 4x4 dodge ram 1500. The transmission burned up earlier this year. I bought what I thought was a tranny from the same year and model truck, but come to find out, it came ouf of a 1999 dodge ram 2500 4x4. After swapping trannys, first gear and reverse work without a problem, and occasionally will take off in second gear and downshift into first as soon as you let off the gas. Could this problem simply be the governer pressure solenoid and sensor? Or is the 1999 transmission incompatable with the computer on my 1998 truck? Thank you in advance for your advice.

First find out if the transmissions are interchangeable. Check with the dealership or a salvage yard could check through their interchange data base.

    I research the transmission and it is interchangeable with my model truck. I also unhooked what I believe is the 8 pin plug located near the top of the transmission after. Reading this should allow you to shift manually. During my test drive, when shiftin manually, it felt as if it shifted into second, but the rpms never dropped. Although, if I down shifted back into first, it felt as if it dropped back into first gear. At this point I'm totally lost and any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Take a look at the down shift cable and make sure its not broken especially were it connects to the throttle linkage.And maybe try cleaning the electrical plug that plugs into the trans.Its about a 7 to 9 wire plug.They tend to collect water and short the wiring out.

your transmission runs through part of the radiator. Check your fluid level and see if your hoses are conneced right.

DODGE RAM 1500 4X4 YEAR 1995 AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION PROBLEM


I don't know what you got going there, but most people would have shot that truck in the head along time ago, you must a lot of patience. 1, 10 to 12 liters is for a complete rebuild, you are only dumping out none, you should not have to ad any oil. Just check it with the dipstick.2 you have 2 oil coolers in the line, how did you manage that? in out in out? 3, Get the thing up there in line with the engine, move it in close, line up the bolt holes, get a couple bolts started, keep the tranny supported, so far so good, put in a cross member while it is still loose, don't tighten anything up yet, you are still aligning, get the flywheel spun around till a bolt lines up, remove 3 or 4 spark plugs and it will spin easier, put in bolt, then spin it around again to the next bolt and put it in, get all of them in before tightening them up, Now you can start tightening up all your bolts, cross members, drive shafts, hook up he shifter, electrics, speedometer, etc. You don't want any oil leaks, do not take out the torque converter, you will upset the seal. If it doesn't start, your neutral safety switch is out of align. You will have to loosen it up and move it just a fraction till the starter clicks on. Don't forget the spark plugs! Hope this helps.

What kind of tranny will work to replace mine?


Yes. They should both be 46RE transmissions and the bolt patterns and the plugs should be the same.

Loss of acceleration and power on 2003 dodge ram 1500


The acceleration may be an issue with the clutch or with engine.  If it is a manual tranny, you may have a worn out clutch.  For automatic, you may need to have the solenoid cleaned or have the tranny serviced
Other issue could be on the engine, check first the fuel filter especially if you encounter loss of power when running.

Check engine light tranny temp light, and o/d light


where the transmission and transfer case meet there is a weep hole,check for leakage out that hole...if it shows a leak you probably have a rear transmission seal leaking. if there is any sealer around where they meet someone tried to stop the leak without properly repairing it.

did you drain the fluid, it may have lots of metal and be really gummed up causing it to over heat and burn off. Aside from that the most commonly overlooked "check engine" proplem is the O2 sensors, there should be 2 of them

Dodge rams plagued with tranny problems


I owned a 96 ram and all I can say is "DON"T BUY ONE"! I bought mine new and after 50 K, I replaced the rear end gears, at 58 k, the transmission was replaced, at 65 k, the fuel pump. I then bought an extended warrantee just in time for the first AC evaporator. Then after 85 K, another AC. After 120 K, a second tranny and a replacement vehicle! I am not normally ******* cars nor trucks and now own a Subaru that is perfect as well as a Corvette!
