Question about 1997 Dodge Ram

2 Answers

1997 Dodge 5.9L Diesel automatic. Hunts trying to go into OD or trans lock. Seems to work better in hot weather after about 5 miles at highway speed. Checked TPS. It is well within specs at 1.017 idle and 3.7v at full throttle. Tested voltage response from black to orange. Hunts around 40 mph, where it is supposed to shift, I think.

    I don't think that is the problem because it won't lock up with the OD off either.

What could be causing lock up to kick on & off while driving down the highway?


sounds like your lock up converter is kicking on and off. a shift kit could help. just take it to your transmission shop and be done with it.

Transmission will not shift into overdrive on a 2003 4.7L Jeep


This will not repair the problem but it will cause your OD to shift. Caution: you need a long stretch of highway and sparse traffic.
After trying everything I could think of, I noticed that when the automatic locks failed to engage (at around 15mph) that's when the transmission would not shift into OD. So, now when the locks don't lock and the transmission doesn't shift to OD, I put the transmission in neutral and turn off the ignition and let it coast to a slow speed (see above caution). When I start the engine again and put the transmission back into drive, the locks engage and so does the OD. Works for me. I'm currently doing research on what causes the locks to engage automatically. I'm thinking it will be a vacum or a switch. BTW, mannually engaging the locks will not work. Good luck. Hope it works for you.

your trans cooler is restricted. most likely it is part of your radiator and if it is restricted you will either need to replace the radiator or install an aftermarket cooler. have your trans cooler flow checked and go from there

Hard Shifting after highway driving (1996 Chevrolet Tahoe)?


converter clutch regulator valve is worn causing line pressure to rise to maximum in turn causing your harsh shifts. Sonax makes a repair kit for it or you can install a stiffer spring to make it work correctly

Manual heating system with automatic trans. 7.3 L Diesel, 45k miles


it may be your thermostat, the gauge on the dash is a dummy gauge, there is only three positions that it sees, dead cold, operating temp, and hot, so even though the needle looks fine it just means it s closer to operating temp then it is to cold,
