Transmission solenoid


I think that you have been getting the "bums rush" from the transmission rebuilder.. There is always oil in the gears as there is oil continuously being splashed around so burning gears is out unless you have a band /clutch slipping problem. Always run the fault codes to see if there are electronic problems and have a pressure test done to check for internal mechanical problems I advise that you find an accredited auto transmission shop that repairs your transmission and get a second opinion before you spend another dollar.

I hate to tell you but it sounds like your transmission was rebuilt incorrectly and need to be corrected or tossed and start anew, new transmissions for your truck are roughly $1,600. I'm sorry to hear about your problem.

Can a faulty speed sensor in a 96 dodge ram automatic make it only read 1st and 2rd gear


not likely, the speed sensor sends the info to the pcm and will affect gear change, though its highly unlikely that the speed sensor can make the pcm "read" first or second gear, speed sensor sends info to the pcm to help it decide when to shift gears/apply abs/ etc

the input/output sensors on ****** could be bad. check them out! you will have to take it to a ****** specialist, because the pan has to come off to check it out. as long as the pan is off change the ****** filter also.

2003 dodge ram 1500 quad cab will not shift out of park


There is what is called a shift interlock mechanism. It is suppose to keep you from putting it into gear withut putting your foot on the break.

Do a quick test. See if your brake lights come on when you press the brake peddle. If they do, you will have to go into the wireing of the brake switch and see if power is coming out of the switch to the interlock solenoid. If power is going to the solenoid, then you have a bad solenoid.

Hope this helps.

1996 Dodge Ram Transmission shifting problem


I had the same problem with my 96 Ram 1500. I thought I was going to have to pull it out and get it rebuilt or just replace it. That was at 134,000Km it's now got 210,000 and shifting like a dream. What I did to solve the problem was this, as follows:
1. No lucas transmission Fix makes things worse.
2. Get your self a new transmission filter and gasket
3. Grab Gunk transmission medic 12oz
4. Grab 7 Liters of Valvoline ATF+4 transmission fluid (Made for chrysler transmissions)
5. Drop the trans pan and drain all the oil, clean pan and magnet
6. start truck for 5 seconds and the pump will pour out another 1 liter
7. re-install filter, gasket and pan, then add your Valvoline ATF+4
8. Add, the valvoline, transmission medic and make sure you have the right level of fluid

That solved my transmission problems, instantly it was shifting better, I no longer had to let off the gas to make it shift. Now if you have large pieces of metal on the magnet, and it's totally covered in filings, you might want to consider rebuilding the trans. My magnet had usual clutch.         

Anyhow good luck, let me know if it did the trick for you.
