Question about 1999 Dodge Ram
HAVE TO LET OFF GAS & OR MANUAL SHIFT 1ST TO 2ND EVERYTHING ELSE WORKS , DOES IT HAVE TRANS COMPUTER PROBLEM? OR BAD TRANNY FLUID DOES NOT SMELL BURNT
I have a 1999 Ram B 1500 Van, auto transmission, 5.9 L engine.
Same problem, trans hesitates in 2-3 upshift, sometimes 1-2
to 2-3 upshift. Posts trouble code P1756 - Transmission Govenor pressure too low at below 15 to 20 Psi. Transmission pump shot or valve body leak stops trans from reaching proper pressure to shift, which is minimum 15 Psi.
Either trans is leaking in valve body, valve is stuck, shift solenoid on valve body is sticking, or pump is shot.

I am going through this now my 2000 ram 3500 always had a problem with reverse
I chocked it up to a quirk of the transmission! But my mechanic found out that they only placed this trans in late 1999 and early 2000 trucks first years the 6 speed was offered. It comes with a smaller clutch and synchronizer that are no longer available unless you find a dealer with old stock sitting on a shelf. I am having to updated my cultch and am having to replace the gears that will allow the new type synchronizer to work this in just a about ½ the price of a new transmission BOHICA/FUBAR
So just get ready for a shock if you need to replace synchronizer rings
