There should be 2 plugs in the trans - one for drain and one to fill. Just make sure you use the correct fluid - chack with your dealer.

SOURCE: Trouble code P1740 on 1999 Dodge Ram 2500

I had the same code on my 2001 dodge 2500. The truck wouldn't shift from 3-4. I pulled the trans pan off and replaced a broken spring ($2.00). It is behind a thin plate with 3-4 small torq screws. You don't have to remove the valvebody. Only took me 45 minutes to fix.

I would like to give thanks to Jeff Russel from Teal automotive. He said this is a very common problem. He sells any part for any automatic Transmision and his prices are very affordable.
Here is a link to the website.

Hope this helps.

Take it back

Did you not test it out--- before paying
& driving off?

Maybe the trans has some internal wear,
from the previous owners habits

2001 Dodge ram -2500 automatic. transmission slow to engage, months later started not shifting into 3rd gear, then 1 months later slow to engage into 2nd , now only 1st gear......


sounds like filter could be clogged, if it hasn't been changed in a while. you can try to replace throttle position sencer, it is like your old trans kinkenge system, only now, it is elect. it tells trans when to shift, like your speed sencer on trans doe's. both can make it act like it is.

92 chevy s10 4x4 4.3L manual transmission no 3rd gear


Hi:

Your transmission has 3 shift rails...
1st - 2nd
3rd -4th
5th- Reverse

If your 3rd gear doesn't work , you have an internal transmission problem, such as a syncronizer, or similar fail... There is not much you can fix, without removeing the transmission.

1998dodge1500 wont shift from 2nd to 3rd unless I let off the gas


Well, I should be asking for more information, but since I am now on my 5th, yeah, 5th transmission in my 95 1500 Ram I have come to learn a little bit about them. Chrysler had a bad problem with their trannies in the 94's & 95's. They then made a change in 96, but that didn't solve the problem. So here goes my attempt to help you out.
Have you checked you tranny fluid level? Very important. A transmission kind of works under the same principal as a jet boat. Meaning, it pumps the fluid through the transmission much the same way a jet boat pumps water through it to move the boat, but in this case the fluid power is directed through several lines causing the gears to move. You switch gears when there is a certian amount of pressure on the modulator to divert the fluid to another area.
Long story short: Check your fluid, not only the level BUT the fluid. Are you seeing any metal in it? Dodge had a problem with the webbing of their torque converters flaking off, causing transmission cooliant lines to plug up. This same metal chips, shavings, etc. were damaging the face of the clutches, and plugging up modulators. Check your fluid. I would probably say change your fluid and transmission filter. It's not that big of a job if you have a place you can work on your vehicle. Be careful when putting you transmission pan back on. Make sure you tighten the bolts in a crosswise manner, and tighten them snug, BUT not over tight. That will cause leaks.
Another point I will make. Check for vacuum leaks, this could very well be your culprit too.
I'd start with that first.
Good luck, let us know how you come out.
