If your vehicle is a diesel truck then removed transmission pan. removed transmission filter as well. you will find wiring going to two solenoids side by side. follow harness to other sensor. single solenoid which is located on governor. there will be a square sensor on side, should be black in color. that is your temp sensor. make sure to replace the governor and sensor together. they can be bought seperately but not advisable to just replace temp sensor. should range in price of $200 for both.

Is 7 quarts of transmission fluid too much for an 05 ram 5.7 hemi engine?


Is your trans an auto trans? If so, you should have the 45rfe trans which would take 5-7 quarts to refill after a filter change.

Use only Chrysler or Valvoline ATF+4 fluid.

On a 2001 dodge intrepid with a 2.7, whether you put it into drive or reverse it does nothing...this started when drivin on day it went into a limp mode...got it home and parked and when i later tried to...


limp mode as in computer limp in mode?check the trans fluid is it dark looking?, Need more info. Did you have the trans fluid changed recently? The reason i ask is when you change the trans fluid way after its do the new trans fluid is detergent type and fresh fluid can put the transmission in shock(Trans Shock). This can wipe out a transmission in 5 miles or so seen it too many times. Let me know how it goes. Lee

Dodge Ram 1500, trans stick out, hard to pour trans fluid into...


You're going to have to shimmy up underneath and guide the dipstick tube back in and fasten at least one of the screws temporarily so you don't pull it out again. Its fairly easy and you shouldn't even need a jack due to the standing height of the 1500, I'm fairly broad around the chest and shoulders and i can get under my 94 which is the the same basic body stye quite easily with no jack to put back in my pesky neutral safety switch plug that occasionally likes to wiggle out

2004 dodge ram is over heating, the thermostat and fan clutch have been replaced.Doesn't(over heat) in cool weather,but will in mod. weather if driven over 70mph or hilly terrain due or increase of rpm,and...


Water pumps can stall out, but do you have air trapped in system.
Had you recently had the system "open" to replace hose, thermostat, temp sensor. Some Ford and GM have a bleeder screw on a high point in cooling system to bleed out trapped air.

Check your trans fluid color. Since the trans cooler is built into radiator (automatics)

IF the engine is overheating the trans CAN overheat
IF the trans is overheating the engine CAN overheat

They share the same cooling source and trans fluid gets hotter than oil, but yet it has a wimpy cooler built into radiator. Maybe add trans oil cooler to system.

Also outside temp affects the cool down rate of the radiator, ie...hot air trying to cool down hot radiator/engine is less effecting than cool air cooling hot radiator/engine
