Btwn 2H and 4H can be done while driving up to 55 mph.
btwn 4L and 4H must stop put into Neutral in automatic trans. - do not stop at N on 4WD shifter. One solid motion.

1995 dodge ram 1500 I need instructions on how to shift out of 4-wheel drive.


well not sure what style shifting it has. if its the floor shifter to select. you need to have the truck in neutral first before changing the 4wd. same thing with push button shifting on the newer trucks. it just works easier for the parts to move not being in gear. if it wont work with the shifter then you might have something that is broke or jammed.

1998 dodge ram 1500 loss of engine power, slight ticking when accelerating, transmission shifting at odd times. check engine blinks on and off on occasion.


Without a code to work with i know those trucks had a problem with the t.p.s. sensor . This will also cause erratic shifting of the transmission

The best way to do that is to start the engine put the transmittion in neutral with your foot on the brake and pull it out of 2hi,,,put the trans in park then move shifter to 4 hi or lo.

Grinding in and out of 4 wheel drive


You say 'new' truck, 09? or new used? I have had 3 Fords, 3 w/ manual trans. case, if you go into 4x4 Low range, you must come to a complete stop before shifting the trans. case to 4x4 mode, and I always put trans (automatic) in neutral before slipping into 4x4, it engages smoothly, no grinding. 4x4 high range can be put in while moving, but I would let off the gas pedal, shift to 4x4 high range, then resume accelerating. If there is any grinding going on doing it as above, something isn't right. Check the trans. case fluid level also, to make sure that's not an issue.

98 ram 1500 4x4, all work with the exception of third gear shift just after shifting into second, no OD problems or slipping. 120,000 one owner miles. would like to fix this problem without creating any...


in your transmission you have a shift solinoid that is probably sticking, when and if you replace it, also have the bands adjusted (every 12000 miles or the next transmission flush)
