Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck

1998 Dodge 3500Transmission goes to neutral

While driving at 50-55 MPH the transmission suddenly goes into neutral. I have to pull over and put it in park and then back to drive. I have taken it to a transmission specialist and he could find no problem with it. Has anyone had a problem like this and did you find a fix for it?

Try checking/adjusting the linkage. My 99 3500 TD has a similar problem when trying to shift into Drive. I have to shift to drive then slam down on the shift lever to get it to engage. Once in a while it will pop into neutral if I hit a large bump or something. I've just been too lazy to crawl under the truck to do anything about it.

I have a 2002 Dodge stratus 4 cylinder quits pulling after a few miles

the transmission filter is possible plugging up. When the car is off the fluid flows backwards through the filter into the transmission pan. Once the car is started, the fluid goes through the filter, if there is a lot of debris in the pan it will suck it up into the filter. then once the filter plugs up the fluid cant get to the clutches inside the transmission. thus it feels like neutral. similar to as if there was no fluid in the transmission. Replace the transmission filter.

Can't find where to put transmission fluid in

There is a dipstick under the hood to check the transmission fluid. Pull it out and add right into the dipstick tube. Check the level with the car warmed up after driving, level surface, and the parking brake on and the car in neutral.
