SOURCE: torque converter solenoid stuck off DTC

There is a solenoid switch that locks up your torque converter to get a 1:1 input for your transmission. This solenoid (or less likely its circuit) does not operate. You probably don't feel the difference in driveability but this definitely affects fuel mileage of the car... The solenoid for your particular application is available for about 60$ Canadian at NAPA auto parts here in Canada. Not too sure about USD$ and labour costs...

SOURCE: 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 automatic transmission won't shift out of 1st

It sounds like your speed sensor may have gone bad.
If you can get it to Auto Zone they can scan the truck for you and let you know if it is the speed sensor. Auto Zone scan for free and and may have the parts right there.
The part is  not that hard to replace and they can give you the instructions on how to do it your self. The only other thing is to take it to a transmission shop and have them scan it and repaire it.
Just be careful that they try not to sell you the whole transmission and not just the sensor if that's what it is.
Good luck and hope this help. Be careful that you do not burn out the transmission as it will not shift, You may have to change the transmission fluid and filter if there already burn. The speed sensor is on the out side of the transmission on the driver's side. Check the wire harness and clips too.

SOURCE: grinding noise while driving.

Possible causes:

a) a brake disc shield is too close to the disc, and it's coming into contact in the circumstances you outline

b) pebbles stuck between the disc shield and the disk

c) dried out wheel bearings

d) worn Universal Joints in the drive shafts

e) worn A/C pump

f) worn alternator

g) worn water pump

Is the noise still present above 15 miles an hour and past 1500 rpm when the clutch is disengaged (i.e. gearbox in neutral?). The answer to this question may help you to pinpoint the source. I know it's stating the obvious but the fact that you're hearing a grinding sound means it's caused by something that is moving relative to something else. Again this should help narrow down the cause.

SOURCE: Check engine light comes on and the transmission shifts rough.

There is a tsb on this and the fix is to change the engine contrl
ol modul if the code is p2716. There is nothing wrong with the solenoid....the problem is the sender to the solenoid.

    Twice the engine light has remained on when fired up and the trans. has stuck in first gear for several miles then light clicked out, gears changed then worked perfectly


    If the "check engine" light is coming on, there is a code, even though the light goes off, the code should be stored. If it stays in 1st gear I'm guessing you may have a stuck shift solenoid. Have you had the trany fluid changed lately, is it full of fluid? Check the fluid with vehicle in "park" on level ground, with the engine idling, it's best to do this at operating temperature. The manufacturers usually recomend changing the fluid and filter every 30,000 miles. It could be something else too the transmission shifting is controled by the computer. The computer gathers information from various sensors on the vehicle and tells the transmission when to shift. I guess I would get it to a shop and have the codes read to find out what is going on before you have major trany problems. It could be the vehicle speed sensor, throttle position sensor, mass air flow sensor, coolant sensor, etc. Good luck.

    THE IDLE SPEED SENSOR SOUNDS LIKE IT IS FAILING. THE IDLE SPEED SOLENOID CAN PREVENT THE TRANS FROM SHIFTING AT DESIGNATED RPM'S. THE THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR WORKS IN CONJUCTION WITH THE IDLE SPEED SENSOR TO TELL THE COMPUTER THE DEMAND FOR FUEL AND THUS SHIFTING THE TRANS AFTER THE RPMS HAVE REACHED ALMOST REDLINE. TRY CHANGING THE SENSOR AND YOU WILL HAVE SOLVED THE NO SHIFT PROBLEM. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. GOOD LUCK

    You have one of two very common problems.
    Number one may be a stuck open EGR valve
    Number two would be a failing Idle Air Control valve (IAC).
    Try this: Open the hood & locate the EGR valve, close to the firewall, behind the intake. Find & take with you a small hammer. The next time that it happens, open the hood & tap on the EGR valve. If it is sticking "open" the tapping may dislodge the carbon particles that are keeping it open.When the EGR valve is open, exhaust is getting into the intake at idle, and this will def stall out the car.
    There is no repair to the IAC valve, it would need to be replaced if it is bad.
    One of these two scenarios will cure your problem, I see it every day.
