Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

When I put the truck in drive or reverse the engine begins to bog down and when I take it out of gear to neutral the engine rpm's spike, I suspect that the torque converter is locked up again. This is the third one in three years. Can some one please tell me why my truck is eating my toque converters? transmission is 48RE with oem converter

Rip the granny box out and fit a manual gearbox and turn this truck into a macho man machine and not something for a old granny with dodgy knee and hip joints

SOURCE: dodge pick up won't go

check for a faulty valve body. there is a tech service bulletin for your problem. obtain a chilton's, or haynes repair manual specific to your truck, in the general maint. section you will find how to perform this operation. it is fairly simple. (if i can do it) adjust both bands then start/engage the reverse to see if this solves the problem. the TSB can be found on any internet site that features them. ex. type dodge ram tsb's and you will be on the right track. if this does not solve your problem, you could have a partially clogged trans coolant line as there is a check valve located within the return line that if it becomes clogged, will not allow fluid to enter the converter.

You have to be very careful with input shaft rings. They like to eat into the pump stater. Also always buy new vb don't buy rebuilt because they only work 2 out of 5 times. I know this for experience

Transmission bogs down


what counts is ENGINE RPM.
see?
i put shifter in REV.
i do the stall test in the FSM, or at alldata.com
the stall test is brake hard sat and advance throttle with right foot for 5sec max, what is RPM????
if its very very low RPM that is a weak engine, but will not that, because car drives perfect in forward gears.
if the RPM shoots why to high (read the page) 2500 is like max,IIRC.
that means REVERSE slips.

ever try a new tranny filter. or better a full flush and new filter?
ever 50k?
amazing things happen , it last 2 times longer.

hell do the stall test in all gears, takes what 1min?
and see the book , on spec.
alldata.com
or the real FSM
get one, and win.
see it here, in 1st.
this video use the A/T tranny to test a good MAF.
http://www.fixkick.com/videos/FLV-all/showtime.html#MAF

this test is classic test on all trannys, in all FSM of ever car (non CV)
note the rpm in top right corner, and it ends at 2000 rpm
this proves 3 things
1: engine has full power
2: tranny dont slip in 1st.
3: the MAF is at full output and good, (ignore this for now)

then brakes are had set. and chocks on tires.
the engine and tranny be come like a dyno test.
the FSM cover this is vivid details on 1st and reverse.
and the solutions.

Sounds like maybe a motor mount may have broken,if you
open the hood and put the car in drive ,then neutral then reverse
the engine should only "rock" about an inch or so,if it really jumps
that is the problem.

My f350 w/v10 has a serious loss of power from a standstill. The engine will bog down when in forward gear. In reverse, I can spin the duallys. In park or neutral the engine seems to have plenty of hp. ...


You can spin the duallys in reverse because reverse is a MUCH lower gear. NO, there is no kickdown cable for your transmission. Your transmission is controlled electronically.
If the engine is bogging down or if the transmission is trying to start up in the wrong gear, either the check engine light should be on or the O/D OFF light should be flashing. The best course of action in diagnosing a problem with a computer controlled engine and transmission is to scan the computers that control them to check for fault codes.
