Thats possible. A torque converter going bad would give you the same feeling as slipping the clutch on a manual shift.
Could also be the pump in the trans, or blockage in the valve body.
You did drive the truck for a couple of days before taking it on the highway ? And change the fluid in the trans ?

SOURCE: 1998 Dodge RAM 1500 won't upshift, slips out of gear

have you dropped the pan to see whats the bands are set at, any debris in pan bottom, whats your governor pressure, if bands are ok, but gov pressures are not relative to speed 1 psi per mph up to 95-127psi, port is on pass side of case rear top right, scan tool would be very helpful, your must have mil light on for this problem, gov dtc's, replace gov transducer as gov solniod as a pair, no exceptions, also are there any 02 sensor dtc's, shorted to voltage, this wil make pcm do stupid things to trans shift, affecting gov signals. GOOD LUCK RDJRP

Sounds like dirt in the transmission may be causing the shift points to not work properly.
Is this the problem you are having?
If it is, then I would say that one should have the fluid changed out of the transmission at a local shop.

If this does not solve the problem, then the solution may be a rebuild of the transmission.

I have a 1998 dodge ram 1500 5.9 4x4 will a torque convertor from a 1996 work in my 98


Depends on the engine - transmission combo. The tranny has a housing the torque convertor sits in and is mounted to the engine.

do you have an st, ws, Laramie or sport? 2 wheel or 4 wheel, 6 or 8 cyl engine?

according to amazon and advance auto the replacement torque convertor is the same for 96 and 98 v8's both 5.2 and 5.2 engines so I would say yes. The drive trains are similar and a junk yard can verify via the vin #'s too.

It can either be low on fluid, the clutches burned up, pump or torque convertor failure, clogged up filter, or broken turbine input shaft. Pretty much needs to go to a reputable repair facility!

My 95 chevy s10 pickup truck stop moving after 1/2 mile, after 5 minutes, it moves again, what causes the transmission to do this?


Front transmission pump.For a Chevy S10 its located behind the torque convertor,This pump supplies the torque convertor and it service as a pressure supply system, Just because the pump is in the immediate area it does wear out and develops gaps and is unable to supply transmission fluid to the system. When the transmission warms up the fluid thins out.Sitting for 5 minutes allow the fluid to cool just enough to run again
P.sthis remind me of what happen to me I stuck on the side of the road ,half mile and took 2 hours to drive back

I have replaced both Shifting solenoids and Speed sensors but when I put my truck in gear it makes a slight **** and stalls out. It starts up and idles fine but won't go.


can you roll trk? does it stall in any gear as soon as you shift? (rev/fwd) possible torque converter malfunction or trans shaft broke (internal failure) which has trans locked up. It is cheaper to get used trans than having that one rebuilt. Most trans shops offer free inspection but give all the same diagnosis it seems. We have to rebuild trans!! I have yet after 28 yrs have a trans shop say they will tear down and fix only that problem (unless it was the torque converter). If trk does not roll, remove rear drive shaft ( 2 wheel drive ) does it roll now? Is the fluid clean and smells clean? does fluid look dark and smells like burnt toast? I would just get a used trans with clean fluid present and swap, make sure it comes with the torque converter or buy new one. Sorry this has happened to you at the coldest time of the year, good luck

Error codes


Her is the definition and a list of possiable causes.


Code P1740-Torque converter clutch did not lock up when the PCM sent the command. Enabling conditions: No engine or transmissions codes are present, vehicle speed was under 70 MPH, TPS was under 33% open. When the PCM commanded the torque converter to lock, no change was detected in engine speed. Blocking action: This code can block the following monitors: none.
Testing: Check torque converter solenoid for proper operation.
P1740 TCC O/D SOL PERFORMANCE (GAS)
Theory of Operation
The Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) Solenoid is used to engage the TCC which improves fuel economy.
When Monitored
The Torque Convertor Clutch (TCC) and Overdrive Clutch (OD) will be tested each time the PCM requests TCC engagement in 3rd gear and OD.
Set Condition
The DTC will set if the expected RPM drop is not achieved while attempting to engage TCC or OD. This indicates a malfunctioning torque convertor or overdrive clutch.
Possible Causes
* ENGINE DTCS PRESENT
* TRANSMISSION DTCS PRESENT
* TRANSMISSION TEMPERATURE TOO COLD
* OIL PAN CONTAINS EXCESSIVE DEBRIS
* 3-4 SHIFT SOLENOID
* SHAFT OR SEAL DAMAGE
* TCC SOLENOID
* TORQUE CONVERTER
