SOURCE: how do you change a transmisson

Unfortunately it does happen in the chrysler vans, it may help keep going a little longer depending on how bad it is slipping if you put some +4 additive in your transmission. (the plus 4 is a friction modifier) and it helps most of the slight slips recover themselves due to regular transmission fluid being in them. It does work I asked my transmission friend about one that did that and he recommended it and its been a couple years. It may or may not help yours depending on how bad it slips and may need another transmission, but this is at least a alternative that may work. It is available at most parts stores.

1st 2nd 3dr 5th and reverse gone MT

If 4th gear is good, no slipping, then your transmisson is toast. Replace with a known good working one.

The transmission under hard acleration hesitates 99 dodge dieasel

It sounds to me that the clutch material in the transmission might be breaking down. Before too long I would have the transmission rebuilt or replaced. If you wait too much longer the transmission will start to slip and pretty soon you will have NO gears but first and reverse.

The 5r55w transmisson is known for wearing out the case where the front and middle band servo pins go thru. If it wore the front band servo, it would slip in 2nd. But if it slips in 1st and 2nd it sounds like it could be a weak forward clutch. How many miles does it have on it. If you can get it up into the higher gears, does it slip in 5th. 2nd and 5th use the same band to apply them. Are you gettting and overdrive off light flashing? IF yes, what codes?
