98 Dodge Ram trans temp light, OD off

Hello, I have a 1998 Dodge Ram, 5.2 4x4, 46RE trans, only 78k mi. I was experiencing an issue where after I drove the truck approx. 20 mi. it would not shift out of 1st gear. I replaced the governor pressure sensor and switch with the help of a former Chrysler certified mechanic. This fixed the initial issue, but now I am having the issue mentioned in this thread. After driving about 20 mi. the OD kicks out and trans temp light comes on. I removed the check valve on the cooler line, as I have heard that it gets plugged easily, no change to my issue.... Any insight?

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

Have you replaced the transmission filter and fluid yet,
if your transmission works ok until it heats up,your transmission external cooler may be plugging up getting the transmission fluid to hot and not cooling it at all.It is located in front of your A/C and radiator.you can replace it with an after market one or have it flushed.
and you might want to put in an additive for the transmission made my Lucas.

I have a 97 dodge dakota just put a motor in it and now after driving for about 5 min trans temp light comes on and od off light comes on .trans is full of new fluid and all connections are good


OD probably is commanded to go off whenever the trans temp is high. Was the radiator connection plugged when the cooling lines were removed? Check to ensure they are connected to the radiator and were not kinked when the engine was removed.

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

Will make dodge trans temp light o d off


Run fault codes and look for a servo/sensor fault in the od section of the box. If the od band/clutch is slipping it will cause the oil to over heat. Have a pressure test done on the box to ensure proper operating pressure. Check for correct oil level in the gear box.

1997 dodge ram 3500, it shudders in OD


Hey, I also have a 98 ram with the cummins and what you are talking about is when you are pullin hard in overdrive the trans is working to hard causing the shudder, when this happens back off the throttle and get back on the throttle to allow the trans to downshift. If you dont it will break the overdrive gear. There is nothing wrong with the trans it is just that it is shifting to early and bogging down causing the shudder.
