You should get an advanced obd reader to be sure that the TPS is not getting worn out in that spot. You can also use a VOM to check the TPS is you have a recording MIN/MAX feature on the meter. To test this you need to unhook the TPS (throttle position sensor) and hook up the meter to it. Then you SLOWLY press down on the pedal for the accellerator. The meter should be set to read OHMS and have min/max recording enabled. You can also have someone sit and watch the meter. The meter should go from infinty to near 0 at full throttle. You are not running the motor during this test by the way. If the meter suddenly drops out to 0 or starts showing readings that are sponeous and not in linear progression to what you are doing, the TPS is bad.

SOURCE: 1996 Dodge Ram Transmission shifting problem

I had the same problem with my 96 Ram 1500. I thought I was going to have to pull it out and get it rebuilt or just replace it. That was at 134,000Km it's now got 210,000 and shifting like a dream. What I did to solve the problem was this, as follows:
1. No lucas transmission Fix makes things worse.
2. Get your self a new transmission filter and gasket
3. Grab Gunk transmission medic 12oz
4. Grab 7 Liters of Valvoline ATF+4 transmission fluid (Made for chrysler transmissions)
5. Drop the trans pan and drain all the oil, clean pan and magnet
6. start truck for 5 seconds and the pump will pour out another 1 liter
7. re-install filter, gasket and pan, then add your Valvoline ATF+4
8. Add, the valvoline, transmission medic and make sure you have the right level of fluid

That solved my transmission problems, instantly it was shifting better, I no longer had to let off the gas to make it shift. Now if you have large pieces of metal on the magnet, and it's totally covered in filings, you might want to consider rebuilding the trans. My magnet had usual clutch.         

Anyhow good luck, let me know if it did the trick for you.

You will need to get the transmission rebuilt. With the info that you have provided the direct clutches are welded together. Becareful about getting it rebuilt, most shops see Dodge transmissions and they see dollar signs. You should be able to get it rebuilt for around $800.00 to $1000.00 depending on amount of damaged hard parts. Thanks and good luck with your repair.

SOURCE: 1996 dodge ram 2500 auto transmission not shifting properly

Well, first do the service. Pull the pan down and look for metal shavings. If there is metal shavings your in for a transmission. If not, you may have a problem with one of the transmissions shift solenoids located near the valve body.
P.S. The Duramax has the Allison 1000 transmission not the dodge cummins and they are one of the best trannys on the market.

My 04 d0dge ram 4wd auto trans will not down shift


What is the governor pressure sensor reading look like.
This sensor tells the transmission controler what kind of load the engine is under while driving. This tell the transmission what gear to be in. That's why the transmission starts in 2 nd gear
..With most transmissions now if you don't have the live data in front of you to see if all the sensors are in range and test the values that are out of speciation.

04 ram 1500 2wd. trans shudder at cruising speeds under 55? Doesn't during acceleration. Change filter and fluid to no avail.


That sounds like a torque converter problem more than likely. It sounds like it's trying to lock up (supposed to do that above 60mph) at a low speed. It will feel like a harsh shift or a shudder when it's trying to engage. Just to make sure I'm correct, drive it and listen to all the gears. When at 55-60mph after it has gone into it's top gear it will normally drop about 200-300rpm when the torque converter locks up.

Transmission slipping


Did you check the trans oil level. When you changed
the RADIATOR you will loose some trans oil.
If the transmission oil was low when you changed
the radiator it's lower now. Check it now.
Now, if thats not the problem. With that many miles
have you changed the trans oil lately theirs a filter
above the trans oil pan that may be pluged up change
it and the oil. Also, buy a can of trans X it's the only fix
in a can stuff I"LL use.

The transmission under hard acleration hesitates 99 dodge dieasel


It sounds to me that the clutch material in the transmission might be breaking down. Before too long I would have the transmission rebuilt or replaced. If you wait too much longer the transmission will start to slip and pretty soon you will have NO gears but first and reverse.

Converter locks in and out between 35 and 55 mph


I assume you have checked the transmission fluid. Try changing the fuel filter. You wouldn't believe how often people confuse transmission problems with fuel filter problems. The engine is starving for fuel, and therefore, power, and the transmission does everything it can to try and find it.
