SOURCE: 04 dakota automatic transmission gets stuck in overdrive

Sounds like either the lock up converter or solenoid that operates it is "going away" Which trans is in it? I've had a similar problem (just the thump) In an aw4 trans in a Jeep, which I've isolated to those two components but it's too damn cold out to do anything about it yet!!! If the converter is staying locked, vehicle will be sluggish on starts from standstill when this is happening.

SOURCE: dont know if i should check transmission fluid with truck running

if its an automatic pull the dip stick out and it should be stamped on the stick. it will most likely be in park on level ground at operating tempature. if its a manual then while its level pull the fill plug out of the side of the trans it will be about half way up or so. the fluid should be at about the level of the fill hole on the side.

Check your tps with a ohm meter and see if you are getting varable resistance if you do not repace it and it will shift.I hope this helps you?

Which transmissions interchange with the 97 Dakota 3.9 automatics ?


Your transmission is the 42RE, formerly A500SE, and A904 way before that. Due to the electronics involved, you would need the computer and associated harness for a manual Dakota if you were thinking about using a non-electronic automatic.

2001 ford ranger 3.0 auto trans swap out with a 2002 auto trans


On Chevy transmissions there is, on the input shaft, there are two (2) little tabs at the 12 and 6 O'clock position or 180 degrees from one another. When installing the transmission these can often break leaving the transmission useless. It will need to be taken apart and checked on. If it is broken then you can easily replace it from a junkyard trans. (just look forward to a day in the yard tearing apart a transmission) and replace it accordingly.
Keep in mind when reinstaling the replaced transmission, that you HAVE to line these up by spinning the Torque Converter untill it slips on easily. otherwise it will just break again.

I have a 95 chevy pick up with 6.5 diesel engine and converted to gasoline engine witch is 5.7 vortec engine and change all the wire harness inside the cab and engine compartment. Trying to figure out the...


Hi :) Check the wiring harness for a fuel pump relay that is on the firewall. The trans is computer controlled (shift points, firmness, ect). You would either need to run a TBI motor from a '92-95 3-4 or 1-ton truck and get the computer to go with it. Then the new gas computer can run the trans. You will also need to swap the torque converter to a gas unit instead of the diesel. OR get whatever motor you want, and then use a stand-alone controller for the trans. They cost about $600+ for the controller. Still need to do the torque converter. You could run the diesel TC but it just wouldn't perform to full potential.It will bolt up, but a diesel transmission is different from a gas transmission. Diesels shift way earlier and only go to 3500 rpm max. If yo u do the engine swap, you will need a new valve body in the transmission. I have a 700R4 in a 1935 Ford truck. It never shifted right unless I drove it manually. It always bogged down. I took the transmission to 5 different shops and no one could figure it out. After 6 years, I was telling a buddy about it and he had me bring it to his shop. He changed the valve body (was a diesel trans and I didn't know when I bought it at an auto swap) to a corvette valve body and now the truck runs great.

Bighorn Trans


The Bighorn auto tran smission is a special transmission with a snow or uphill assist function. When you use this function it will definitely go fast into Overdrive when shifted upwards.
