Question about 1996 Dodge Ram
Transmission won't shift sometimes it will when i let up on the gas checked fluid levels it doesn't smell burnt please help
I have this problem as well. I used my scanner and codes P0700 and P0740 came up. I did some research of my own and I had my vehicle checked by a couple of different shops, and was told that my Torque Convertor and another name for it is Turbine was not working properly. This part is inside the transmission. You didn't go into small details, so I hope this can give you an idea of what the problem might be. I still have this issue, but I can't afford to have it fixed being unemployed. I hope this assist you just a little. If you have a question for me, please ask. Good luck and take care. :-)

I have a 1999 Ram B 1500 Van, auto transmission, 5.9 L engine.
Same problem, trans hesitates in 2-3 upshift, sometimes 1-2
to 2-3 upshift. Posts trouble code P1756 - Transmission Govenor pressure too low at below 15 to 20 Psi. Transmission pump shot or valve body leak stops trans from reaching proper pressure to shift, which is minimum 15 Psi.
Either trans is leaking in valve body, valve is stuck, shift solenoid on valve body is sticking, or pump is shot.

I would take it to the transmission shop & have it tested. My neighbor had the same problem with his 03 last month and we had to end up rebuidling it. Trans shop here retail price is about 2800, parts for good rebuild cost 5-600 depending which torque converter you get, & if you have yours rebuilt, get the good one. Rick

I need a little mor info. But the reason for the being stuck in 2nd gear is because when something goes wrong with the tranny. it goes into "LIMP" mode wich keeps the trans. from shifting out of 2nd when you are going forward. It does sound like your trans. is gone out though.

That code indicates the transmission is overheating which will certainly cause the problem your having. This maybe just a need to have the fluid and filter changed. Check your fluid level and check the fluid to see if it is a brownish color instead of Red. If it is burned have the fluid and filter changed. This should resolve the issue. Since you are having shifting problems it would be a good idea to have the transmission checked by a Service tech.
