This could be a shift solenoid, a trans connector problem or a control module problem, the 1st thing to do is have the system tested or trouble codes and let me know what they find.

The linkage came loose from the shifter to the transmission, I suspect. That should be an easy, or cheap fix.

How many miles on your truck? Have you checked the transmission fluid level? Have you ever had the transmission serviced? I mean real service...remove the transmission pan and replace the transmission filter and fluid?

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.

no it won't hurt to drive it, but have the computer tested for trouble codes, u most likely have an electric sift solenoid in the trans that has failed.

Engine looses power and tranny wont shift


Transmission is likely reacting to poor engine performance. Check cap, rotor & wires...Check fuel filter (if they haven't been changed in a really long time, don't even look...just change them). If you find nothing unusual, check codes (if any)
I think you most likely have an ignition problem at this point but you have to do some "hands on" checking to determine what's going on...
Good luck

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.
