As bowtie352 said, according to the Hollander number only 98 & 99 will fit your truck but just in case you didn't know the Ram 2500 and 3500 should fit as well in 99 & 98. the ID # for the 1998 is 52119516 & in 1999 the ID # is 52119823. By the way the Hollander # is 400-3256. I have been in the auto repair business for way to many years but have come across a problem with this very transmission a number of times. I I can't remember the daignostic trouble code (DTC) but this problem did cause the check engine light to come on and did receive a DTC dealing with the transmission. The symptoms that the customers transmission was having was that the transmission would not downshift back to first gear and the vehicle would start from a stop in higher gear and not in first gear. Now the reason I am mentioning all the is that I have tried changing the wire harness inside the transmission and this solved the problems in all of them except a couple of them. Not saying this will fix your transmission if you are dealing with the same problem/symptom just letting you know of my experience with this same transmission. The Dodge dealership does sell this wire harness as a separate part and I think the retail cost of the harness is somewhere around a hundred daollars. Hope this helps...

This is true, according to Hollander interchange 1998, 1999 only. If you go to www.car-part.com you can enter your vehicle and options and search by location nearest first to find out who has a used tranny close to you.

1999 Dodge 3500 4x4. 5.9 cummins. Transmission heats to 230 when pulling in tow within 3 to 5 miles. Tranny was completely overhauled and new sensors installed. They said the flow was fine. It works fine...


Sounds like wrong hydro fluid, low fluid or restricted flow of fluid, or converter was set up wrong, could be wrong sensors, check temp with a lazer.

I own a 1998 4x4 dodge ram 1500. The transmission burned up earlier this year. I bought what I thought was a tranny from the same year and model truck, but come to find out, it came ouf of a 1999 dodge ram...


First find out if the transmissions are interchangeable. Check with the dealership or a salvage yard could check through their interchange data base.

What kind of tranny will work to replace mine?


Yes. They should both be 46RE transmissions and the bolt patterns and the plugs should be the same.

1988 Dodge Dakota Ram 4x4 tranny pump is bad how do we go about repairing it or how much would it cost us to have it repaired. We already paid a guy 600.00 to put a tranny front seal in and found out


If you had a tranny seal problem,you would have an external leak. If you have a pump problem you will not any forward or reverse. If the pump is still a problem you will have to remove the transmission to replace the pump. I suggest you talk to a transmission shop and get an estimate for repairs.

Check engine light tranny temp light, and o/d light


where the transmission and transfer case meet there is a weep hole,check for leakage out that hole...if it shows a leak you probably have a rear transmission seal leaking. if there is any sealer around where they meet someone tried to stop the leak without properly repairing it.

1983 dodge power ram 150 custom pickup truck


The 318 was an engine fitted to all manner of vehicles dating back for quite a few years.A torqueflite sounds right although your trans woulld be different than sedan etc due to having a trransfer case to have to run.It may be easier to drop it off at auto trans specialist who can recondition the original one.At least it would save hassles from compatibility issues etc.For engine parts look under sedans that used the same engine.Asalvage yard would be a good place to look for the numbers you need .Are there no web sites that deal with your type of truck?4x4 clubs etc
