Check the U Joints in the Drive Shaft and the Rear End. Sometimes the Rear end U Joint can be Bad and sound like the Tranny.

    I was tryin to Steer Clear of having the Tranny Rebuilt But, Looks like we are just about out of options at this point.

    There should be a Pressure Regulator on the Side of the Tranny. Check That. If it goes out it could make that Swooshing Sound. It should be a Round Insert Piece That is Bolted on.

I have a 3.1 litre 1999 dodge grand caravan, there has been a smell from the transmission, like it was leaking when its driven for a while. we took it to mechanic and he said ther weren't any leaks. now...

Dodge has a reputation for transmission problems in the past. The trans can be replaced or rebuilt but there is likely no simple fix for what you are describing. Make sure in the future to have automatic transmission serviced at least every 30K miles to help them live a long happy life and avoid replacement/rebuild cost.

1996 dodge ram 2500 auto transmission not shifting properly

Well, first do the service. Pull the pan down and look for metal shavings. If there is metal shavings your in for a transmission. If not, you may have a problem with one of the transmissions shift solenoids located near the valve body.
P.S. The Duramax has the Allison 1000 transmission not the dodge cummins and they are one of the best trannys on the market.

My 99 dodge ram 2500 runs great but when I shift into 4th gear it grinds a little. What can I do?

If this is a manual transmission you may want to check the tranny's synchros if they are still in good shape. try doing a double clutch if it works For automatic, it would be best to have the tranny serviced. For some cleaning by draining the oil and cleaning the solenoid works.
