Any varnish deposits that were inside the transmission pretty much stay soft while it's being used every day. After sitting, those same deposits have likely hardened up and are now a very sticky mass. I'd add a good trans conditioner to the oil and not beat on it for a few weeks and see if it clears up. Otherwise you may need to have it rebuilt, as cleaning it out is the same job as rebuilding.

You have a governor problem and possibly a vacuum modulator bad as well. Remove governor cover and remove governor valve to check for sticking valve or weights, clean and replace, or replace with new, Remove Vacuum modulator and preform vacuum test, if it does not hold a vacuum then replace with new. Use a transmission flush and treatment to remove any moisture and or moisture residue or rust that may have formed inside trans from sitting idle for two years...

1988 Dodge Ram 50 Automatic shifts into park reverse and neutral. But physically won't go into drive gears.


Disconnect shift cable from transmission linkage and try to manually put transmission in drive gear ( make sure wheels chocked/park brake on ). If transmission goes into drive gear, suspect a shift cable or shifter assembly problem. If you can't manually shift into drive gear by hand with cable disconnected, suspect internal transmission/shift linkage issue

-Adjust the shift cable.

-Make sure parking brake is apply, block all wheels.
-Lose the shift cable connector at transmission control arm. Turn the arm to park position and push the shift handle to park, then tight it.

You should be good to go.

Disconnect the shift linkage at the transmission and see if you can move the transmission lever into park manually. If you can't, then the internal trans linkage has a problem and pan will need to come down to find out why. If you can do this, then re-connect and adjust the linkage.Check any bushings on linkage pivot cranks...If a bushing is gone it may not be allowing linkage to move all the way to where it needs to go.

88 ram 4x4 auto put trans in and it wont shift


Sounds like you got a bad trans. Was it used? Does it have a warranty? Can you shift it with the linkage off? Is everything adjusted correctly?
